Top 5 Pics To Include In Your Locket
Lockets are the jewelry piece of the moment but they're certainly not new, they can be traced back to ancient civilizations (it's true, you can read up on it!). That's probably what gives them that undeniable modern yet vintage look. The launch of our new lockets has been a long time coming and to say we are thrilled is an understatement! We spent a long time finding the right balance between unique yet classic, and we're kind of in love with the result (check them out!). There's truly no better way to visually keep your loved ones close and if you know anything about us at Tiny Tags, we are all about capturing the people and moments that matter most.
But you may be wondering what you'd actually want to include in your new locket? Our new oval and square lockets each fit two pictures inside. So the combinations are endless! You can also add an initial in the front and up to three engraved lines on the back. So you've got options! You can view all of the styles and metals on the Locket Collection Page. But let's stick to the pics for now! So without further ado, our top 5 pics (spoiler alert: one isn't actually a picture!) to add in your locket.
1. Your Parents
We love the idea of carrying your parents' or grandparents' wedding pic in your locket to keep them close to your heart. Or perhaps a photo of your father or favorite uncle in military uniform? Lockets are a perfect piece to honor those figures in your life that helped shape the person you are today.
2. Your Wedding Photo
We know you've got that one picture from your wedding you actually DO love! Carry it with you for a sweet reminder of the love in your life and the family you have built with your partner.
3. Your Kids
Ok, this one's obvious (especially coming from us!) but a beautiful photo of your kids (preferably as adorable babies!) is always a good idea. You can always sneak a peek at their sweet faces throughout the day when they're not with you. And show them off to pretty much everyone you come into contact with! Much better than scrolling through endless iPhone pics!
4. Your Pet
Our furry family members don't always make it onto our jewelry engravings but the love they contribute to our family is undeniable! Add your fave pic of them being silly or sweet to your locket. This one people will ASK to see!
5. A Folded Up Message
A sweet handwritten note from your husband, or the first time your child wrote their name on their own, or even a fortune cookie fortune with a special meaning! A sweet folded up message could fit into one the grooves of your locket.
If you're looking for the perfect grandma gift and are giving this to your mom, mother-in-law or godmother, another cute idea is to include pics of you and your siblings as kids (or your partner's family if it's for mom-in-law) and/or pics of grandma with her grandkids.
So here you go, lots of big ideas for little pics. Best of all, you can always swap out the pics for new ones whenever you want!
