If you are looking for a unique and heart felt Valentines Day gift for your other half this year you should check out Vinyl Clocks. They sell a very unique gift. A clock that used to be a record.
Matthew and I have been together almost 8 years. We always buy each other something on Valentines Day as it is around the time we got together (give or take a a week or so – neither of us can agree on the exact date we started our relationship – I like to think its from the day we met, him the date we went on two weeks later). We have always done the usual Valentines Day gifts and treats and although it is still lovely to receive flowers or perfume, last year I gave Matthew the task of finding me a gift that was both romantic but different. He really struggled to find something that he thought I would like. I really wish we had known about Vinyl Clocks sooner. I am a huge music lover and this is one gift I would have loved to have received from him.
Recently we were sent an item to review. It came well packaged and in a cute little box, it was finished off with pink packaging. I didn’t know what clock was being sent to me so as to receive a surprise in the spirit of Valentines Day.
What I like about the product is that it is an original vinyl record. That sometime in its life it was actually played and a part of someones music collection. You can purchase different size / coloured clocks. Prices vary depending on the size / rarity of the record.
You can search for your favourite artist or song on the website and if they don’t have it in stock you can contact them and they will see if they have it or if they can get it for you. I love this idea as you can have a clock made for a particular song that means something to you – maybe your first dance at your wedding, the song that was playing when you first met or that you proposed to. It is something that you can make truly unique and personal to you as a couple. I love this idea. You can put them up anywhere you like and every time you glance at the clock you will be reminded of that special moment.
The clock I received is a Swing Out Sister song called You On My Mind and although this isn’t something I would have personally chosen I love the thought that it was pick especially for me with me in mind. Just the title is enough to know that you are the most important thing to someone as they can’t stop thinking about you.
