When it comes to engraving, the options these days are endless and there are so many different things you can get your message etched on.
Whether it’s a gift for someone for a birthday, wedding or other special occasion; a memorial stone for a pet or an urn for a loved one; or a sign for your office; whatever you’re considering getting engraved, the most important thing is that you get the message right.
Here are some ideas of what you can consider getting engraved to suit the occasion:

Generally if you’re getting a sign engraved you only want to include the basics, such as the person’s name and their title. But you might also like to include a “welcome” for when they walk through the door; or something fun like “No doorbell. Please yell DING DONG and we will answer.”
or User Door Knocker repellent

If you’re buying someone a birthday present that you want to have engraved, such as a watch or ring, glass or mug; the options for what to get engraved really just depend on your budget and how much space you have. It’s common for people to include the person’s name and their birth date, or their age, but you don’t have to stick to tradition. You might like to go for something more along the lines of a motivation or inspiration, such as the following:

  • You’re not getting older, you’re adding value
  • 80 years old? I demand a recount.
  • Let’s light the candles and celebrate this special day of your life.
  • Let your all the dreams to be on fire and light your birthday candles with that.

We touched on weddings and anniversaries in the last blog, but basically if you want to proclaim your love for someone; it’s great to include things like: My Heart is Yours, You’re My Everything, Dreams do Come True or Our love is timeless. If it’s a gift, there are options like: For All Time, Life’s a Gamble, You Won! The Future is Yours; or Love isn’t a matter of counting the years. It’s making the years count.

There’s no one in the world quite like your mum and dad and if you want to mark that by buying them something special for Mother’s Day in May, or Father’s Day in September, there are many options for gifts – including glasses, key chains, jigsaw puzzles and coasters; just to name a few. Great messages you might like to consider on these gifts include:

  • You’re the most special woman / man in my heart now and forever.
  • Throughout the years, you’ve always been by my side. Thank you.
  • Mentor, Organizer, Taxi driver, Handyman, Educator, Referee… these don’t even begin to describe all the things a mother / father has to be.
  • Because of you, I am me. Happy Mothers / Fathers Day!

It’s never easy to lose someone you love, whether they are family or pet. But being able to keep a memorial of them can help heal some of the wounds. If you’re considering investing in a memorial plaque for the garden, or you’re wanting to take some ashes home in an urn and want to mark it with love, here are some options for text you might like to include.


  • Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.
  • Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
  • God’s finger touched him, and he slept.
  • A pet is never truly forgotten until it is no longer remembered.

Simple messages:

  • In Loving Memory
  • Rest in Peace
  • Forever in Our Hearts
  • Until We Meet Again
  • Much Loved
  • We Love You Always

Or something more inspirational:

  • Don’t cry because it’s over, Smile because it happened.
  • There is a link death cannot sever, love and remembrance last forever.
  • May you touch, dragonflies and stars, dance with fairies, and talk to the moon.
  • Do not stand at my grave and weep for I am not there, I do not sleep.
