Personalized beekeeping gloves as an anniversary gift? Absolutely! As the traditional gift for third anniversaries, leather has come to represent the durability of marriage. Nothing could mean more to someone that an engraved leather gift that’s, actually, very useful and represents a meaningful passion. It’s a thoughtful way to show your love for your special honey. (Pun intended.)
At Inkwell Designers℠, when we say we can add lettering the anything and everything, we mean it! We’ve embossed, engraved and embroidered some unique things, but these beekeeping gloves were really different and not something we ever expected to see in our studio.
A few weeks ago, a gentleman called us from Boston. He wanted something unique for his wife who kept bees in the back of the yard. He wanted to give her a pair of personalized beekeeping gloves. He had a quote in mind for one glove, “The hum of the bees is the voice of the garden.” and he wanted to wish her a Happy Third Anniversary on the other glove.
We used a woodburning tool to engrave or deboss the gloves permanently with calligraphy and some artwork. The white leather burned to a nice, dark chocolate brown which is very easy to read. This is the same tool we use on our customer’s baseball gloves. We were very happy with the final result and now have a new and unique piece to add to our portfolio.
The client is very happy with the personalized beekeeping gloves and is excited to give them to his wife. We’re so glad he trusted us with this project and hope she loves them.
