"I bought it for my sister & brother in law when they had to put their dog down. They loved it!"
"I purchased this gift for my new daughter-in-law. The product was exactly what I expected from Shutterfly. Also, I loved the box it came in."
"Purchased the heart shaped paper weight and was thrilled. I thought it would be smaller than it was. It actually brought family members to tears. Yes, I would buy another and another. A beautiful gift."
"So happy with how this came out! Makes a wonderful gift!"
"I gave this paper weight to my dog walker with a picture of my pups. She loved it."
Most people have a collection or two of things they love. For some, it's beautiful jewelry or wooden magnets commemorating travels. One collection that's always popular is paperweights. An excellent way to start this collection for yourself or a loved one is with a customized blue paper weight. By selecting a unique image that means something to you and pairing it with a dome, square, or heart shape, you have endless possibilities for one-of-a-kind mementos.
Paper Weights As Gifts for Everyone
Paper weights might not be as functional as they once were. After all, you probably store most of your important documents digitally now, instead of referring to them from the surface of your desk, but paper weights still serve their decorative purpose. Send one to relatives living far away or to a colleague to honor a recent promotion or gift them to employees to let them know you recognize an achievement. Paper weights make excellent teacher gifts -- your kids' teacher is probably one of the few people you know who does still have a desk of papers! Your recipient will love that you thought of them and took the time to customize a gift for them.
Selecting Paper Weight Colors
A blue background is a perfect foil for your cool-toned pictures, too. Images of the ocean or sky or snapshots of your kids in their favorite denim look great inside a blue paper weight. If you or your loved one loves classic patterns, a blue stripe is charming and unexpected. Animal prints on blue are perfect for your zanier friends or colleagues, while solid aqua or navy will go with any interior decor.
Keep Your Paper Weight Collection Going
You can add a new paperweight to your collection anytime you or a family member hit a milestone. A graduation deserves special attention. So does the arrival of a new baby or moving to a new home. Another fun way to make sure you keep up-to-date with your collection is to honor your life's path or a friend's journey with a new paperweight every year on a birthday.
