A Grand Wedding Gift In A Grandfather Clock

Nov 3, 2007
As far as life's grand and momentous occasions get, a wedding is, by far, the grandest and most momentous of all. Whether it's yours, a friend's, or a family member's, a wedding is a joyful union of two souls, and you will want to be a part of it, even in the smallest way possible. What better way to do that than to pick a tasteful wedding present that's perfect in sending off the newlyweds to their long lives together, a wedding present that will stand the test of time, like a lovely grandfather clock.

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 would've been made of a type of heavy wood, such as oak or elm. It may have had intricate carvings, or not. It would've been finished with lacquer or varnish, and if the grandfather clock was well-cherished and taken care of, it would've been gleaming with class.

Most of all, you should remember the sound of the grandfather clock's 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 it's 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. Don't worry about showing up at the wedding ceremony without a wedding gift. After all, it's not about appearances, but rather, it's the thought that counts.

Also, if you're concerned about your budget, don't 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 won't be an expensive antique, yet still retain the grandfather clock's signature beauty and timelessness.

The Perfect Wedding Present

Indeed, there's 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 won't be gathering dust in some obscure shelf or cupboard. Furthermore, you'll know that it'll be lovingly displayed to be admired in a new family home where it'll be loved and cherished, not just in this generation, but at least until the next one, and if you're lucky, the one after that.
