If you follow me on any of my social media accounts, you will have seen me raving excitedly last week when I got home to find a little parcel waiting for me. A gift from a company I had been speaking to on Twitter, ‘just because’.
The company in question is called Vinyl Clocks and their name pretty well explains what they do – they take vinyl records and turn them into clocks.
I think you’ll agree, it’s a pretty simple concept, but produces a really special result and a gift that someone could really treasure.
Music plays a huge part in life and it never fails to amaze me how hearing a song can evoke memories and take you back to a certain point in time, which is what makes these clocks so special. You could choose ‘your song’ to give to your partner, a friend’s wedding song as their anniversary gift, or the song that never fails to have your best friend on the dancefloor as their birthday present – anything special and meaningful.
Should your song choice be slightly unusual, never fear, if it’s not on the Vinyl Clocks website, they will do all they can to source the record in order to be able to make it for you!
When I tore open the wrapping of mine (as gently as possible so as not to damage the clock!) and saw the record that had been chosen for me it put a HUGE smile on my face. Not only does it have my name in it, but it’s also one of my favourite songs! A perfect choice!
When I get a home of my own again, this clock is going to go above my work desk, but I’m going to find somewhere special to put it in the meantime.
