Tale as Old as Time
Chances are a grandfather clock played a role at some point in your lifetime. Your grandparents or parents probably had one standing sentinel in the foyer, living room, study, or any of the rooms in the house where you grew up.
You probably remember its elegant craftsmanship. It wouldve been made of a type of heavy wood, such as oak or elm. It may have had intricate carvings, or not. It wouldve been finished with lacquer or varnish, and if the grandfather clock was well-cherished and taken care of, it wouldve been gleaming with class.
Most of all, you should remember the sound of the grandfather clocks chimes. Its distinctive sound marked each and every momentous event of your life, as well as your parents before you, and maybe even your grandparents before them. It chimed for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and yes, weddings.
Now its time for you to share the heartwarming experience and give a new family the chance to make a grandfather clock a part of their lives.
True as It Can Be
Of course, you probably think that a grandfather clock is a bulky, impractical, and not to mention, expensive present. Indeed, it can be, if you plan to wrap it up in silver wrapping paper and hand-carry it to the wedding reception.
In this day and age, however, there are such things as couriers and delivery services. You can order a grandfather clock online and have it delivered right to the newlyweds doorstep. Dont worry about showing up at the wedding ceremony without a wedding gift. After all, its not about appearances, but rather, its the thought that counts.
Also, if youre concerned about your budget, dont fret. Though generally a grandfather clock can be a little bit on the pricey side, there are some that are within your budget, especially if you look online. Consider a secondhand and refurbished grandfather clock, or a downscaled, medium quality model. It wont be an expensive antique, yet still retain the grandfather clocks signature beauty and timelessness.
The Perfect Wedding Present
Indeed, theres no better way to cap off a beautiful wedding ceremony than the perfect gift. You can be sure that your gift of a grandfather clock wont be gathering dust in some obscure shelf or cupboard. Furthermore, youll know that itll be lovingly displayed to be admired in a new family home where itll be loved and cherished, not just in this generation, but at least until the next one, and if youre lucky, the one after that.
