When someone else’s words say it all or say it better than you ever could, you’ve found the perfect quote to use for this gift idea.
When my mentor, Valerie, achieved a major milestone in her business by officially franchising it, I wanted to give her a thoughtful gift to say, “Congratulations!”
I was so impressed by her vision and her tenacity to see her vision through until it became reality. And she did it despite the naysayers. She inspires me with her actions.
I didn’t know quite what to give her as a gift until I came across this quote, “She believed she could, so she did.”
It summarized her accomplishment so well – the perfect quote!
I found a cute image of the quote on the Internet, printed it out, and placed it in a frame. (If you can’t find what you want online, you could design it yourself or hire someone to design it for a reasonable price through websites like Etsy.com or Fiverr.com.)
A gift like this, although simple, conveys a powerful sentiment. My gift celebrates her accomplishment and, at the same time, celebrates the amazing woman she is.
I hope that every time she reads the quote, it reinforces her ability to do anything she puts her mind to.
This gift idea can be used for any occasion. For a wedding gift, you could frame a quote that best summarizes the couple’s relationship. For Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, you could frame a quote that expresses what your mom or dad means to you as a parent. For Valentine’s Day, you could frame a quote that puts into words your deepest feelings for your partner. For a get well present, you could frame a quote that inspires and uplifts the human spirit.
Words are very powerful and by framing the perfect quote for the occasion, your gift becomes powerful as well.
Words can influence us, inspire us, and draw out our emotions.
