We all have someone special in our life, and it doesn’t have to be our partner. A special person can be our mother, best friend, sister, father, nieces, nephews, or all of them. Every person who holds a space in our heart is special to us, and sometimes giving them generic gifts just doesn’t seem right? There are days or occasions when we want to give them a sentimental gift. Anything that makes them cry happy tears and evokes emotions from them are the best types of present.
When it comes to giving sentimental gifts or keepsakes, there is a lot of personalization, but it’s all worth the trouble. The happiness you give them is worth going through the hassle of finding a perfect and unique gift. If you are short of ideas about sentimental gifts, we share some ideas below.
- Preserved roses
Preserved roses are roses that last forever. If your special someone loves the fragrance of flowers and how they light up a place, this is a perfect sentimental gift for her. The difference between preserved roses and regular roses is that the latter dies after 2-3 days. However, preserved roses remain intact for 2-3 years. Isn’t that beautiful? You can get them in a box or a basket, and if the seller can, they will personalize them for you by adding a name at the bottom of the basket. It is a perfect sentimental keepsake that will allow them to remember you forever.
- Cutting board engraved with a Traditional Family Recipe
Your wife, mom, and grandmother must have a recipe that they always make at get-togethers or parties. It is their secret family recipe which they love to talk about not-so-secretly and pass it on to the younger generation. Right? So, why not make this recipe extra special for her. Some sites and brands will engrave the beautiful legacy on a piece of cutting board that uses wood as its base.
It’s a mesmerizing gift that immortalizes the recipe close to her heart. Also, it has fed most of the people in her family and will continue to do so.

Does your special someone love to travel a lot? Are they always ready to go and explore new places and cultures? Then get them an adventure scrapbook.
