As the holidays of 2009 approach, all the latest gizmos and gadgets are filling stores across the country. This year, it seems that the best way to say “I love you” is with the hottest new iPod or Blu-Ray movie, but what will these sincere gifts look like in 20 years?
20 years ago, the hottest new movies came on VHS tape. 20 years ago, giving someone music on-the-go meant a Compact Disc playing Sony Walkman. 20 years ago, trendy clothes had shoulder pads and excessive floral prints. 20 years ago, the closest thing you could get to an iPhone was so large and heavy today’s airport security would consider it a deadly weapon. 20 years ago, a gift of beautiful fine jewelry told of undying love, and today that gift shines as bright as it always has, and today she still remembers all the devotion and esteem that came with it.
The sad truth is that most of the gifts that were given 20 years ago have found their way into the various landfills and rubbish heaps scattered across our country having outlived their usefulness or meaning. But, those that wanted to give a lasting testament of their enduring love chose a special pendant or a simple pair of diamond stud earrings that still adorn the object of their affection today. In these uncertain times, give a gift that will still shine bright long after iPods and Blu-Ray movies seem like relics of a distant past age. Give a gift that shows the unshakable devotion of your love. Give a gift that endures. Visit Arden Jewelers today.
