A personalized wind chime has something that no other wind chime has: your own uniqueness. It can serve as your own ambassador of good will, your own unique means of self-expression. And as such, it has so many social and personal uses.
Great Gift Option
Perhaps we don’t have to tell you that wind chimes are among the most delightful, if not among the safest (because almost everyone will like receiving it), gift options available. And if it is personalized, the more the recipient will appreciate the thought you’ve put into it. In fact, such wind chimes are quickly growing in popularity, thanks to the myriad of customizable options chime makers offer their customers, as well as the exceptional quality these chimes usually have. And as if those are not enough, wind chimes are also generally considered as harbingers of good, positive vibes.
Many furniture or decor stores also offer the option of mass producing your chosen wind chime (customized according to your specifications), which can be handy as give-aways or souvenirs at big events such as a wedding, an anniversary celebration or at a birthday party.
If you have experienced caring deeply for a pet dog or a cat, then you surely understand the kind of grief pet owners undergo when their beloved animal dies. Pet lovers do not treat their pets as simply “animals,” but as family members that deserve all their love and care. That is why when these pets die (and they will, given their normal lifespan), the emotional devastation that ensues can be indescribable.
Wind chimes that are customized so that its wind sail features the photo of the beloved pet, along with words of inspiration, can be deeply meaningful to the grieving recipient. The wind chime can serve as a constant reminder of the animal that has passed on, but the reminder would be in a positive light. Moreover, the melodies it produces can lift up the grieving soul. The person receiving this as a gift will know it comes from the giver’s heart.
Do It Yourself
Although professionally crafted wind chimes have that distinct, well-polished and meticulously constructed look about them, there is nothing that exudes greater personal warmth than those that you painstakingly make yourself. If the intended recipient of your gift is someone that is truly special to you, giving them something for which you have gone to great lengths to craft on your own can be deeply meaningful-especially if the finished product is something that looks professionally made, anyway.
Still, many arts and crafts stores carry all the necessary materials for your own wind chime. The metal sounding tubes, the ring, the special strings, and all the accessories can often be found in a well-stocked shop. The only limit, then, is your own creativity or imagination-you can even use materials that are not normally used in making wind chimes-although to be on the safe side, stick with the metal sound tubes to ensure that your chime will produce the expected music.
If there’s nothing in your area that sells these, you can always order on the internet-that does not kill the fact that you’re still the one making it. To get ideas on how to create that special wind chime, you can look online for inspiration-getting cues from online stores selling wind chimes does not mean that the personalized wind chimes you make are any less awesome.
There are also those that come in do-it-yourself kits, although choosing one would somehow water down the whole “as unique as your own individuality” idea as kits are mass produced anyway.
In any case, the easiest means to get these types of chimes is by finding a reliable supplier or maker-one that has an extensive sample of existing designs. Many of such makers can be found online, and getting feedback from past clients about their work is easy-there’s the search engine to come to your aid. Many chime manufacturers go to great lengths to offer personalization options that are meant to give the finished product that look and feel as if the giver were the one who personally made it-so much that while others say “it’s the thought that counts,” you’re upping the ante by actually putting some work into that thought.
