Longevity is key.

Is there anything more difficult than gift ideas for important moments? Whether it’s a milestone birthday, engagement, beginning of a new business or the birth of someone’s first child, keepsake gift ideas are the hardest of all.

The importance of choosing correctly to select a gift that will effortlessly fit with someones personal aesthetic, yet also have longevity and quality that ensures this, is paramount. 

Consider also what matters to the person—keepsake gift ideas should align with the receivers interests and what they hold dear. Personalised touches are great, but not always—a beautiful, heirloom item that will be handed down generations or remain pride of place on display can be more sentimental, in many cases.
