Give the Gift of Time This Valentine's Day

I don't know about you but when it comes to buying for your significant other, I always struggle. We've been together almost fourteen years and honestly it was tough in the beginning to choose him a present, now it seems nearly impossible. This is because he is a man that will always buy what he wants when he wants it so when you ask him what he'd like, even he'll struggle to tell you because he's just bought the latest thing on his wish list.

Own a Moment are a company which are setting out to change that buy allowing you the buyer to give the gift of time. Now doesn't that sound like the perfect gift to receive this Valentine's day. They are allowing you to capture those treasured moments that you hold so dear and share them with your nearest and dearest in a way that is both special and affordable all at the same time and lets be honest who wouldn't want more time!


The way it works is this. On the site you pick a significant moment in your life, choosing the year, month, day and the time including whether it was am and pm, if you can't remember the exact time you can of course give a rough suggestion. If your moment is available you will then have the option to upload an image, one that perhaps gives special meaning to this moment as well as personalising with the name of your chosen recipient and a message too.

As well as all of this personalisation, you can also choose whether to have the certificate emailed or posted, you can even choose to have it delivered in a deluxe frame, making it a complete gift. When you've finished ordering your moment will be certified and uploaded to the Official Time Registry, so it is essentially a gift that will actually last forever. You will then be able to access the OTR site to view, download and print your certificate.


I was lucky enough to be asked if I would like to capture my own moment for the purposes of this review. Out of all the moments I have spent with my husband, my favourite moment had to be my wedding day and the picture that I picked to coincide with my message was a little montage of both photographs from our wedding day and items from the day itself too. I haven't shared my moment in this post as I don't want my hubby to see his gift.

The certificate came wonderfully gift wrapped, this is charged as an extra (£2.99) but is something I'd highly recommend as it is the perfect finishing touch to an already special gift. This is definitely a gift with a difference, a great way of remembering those moments and also a way of reminding us that time is a special thing, to cherish. What I also liked about it is that it made me sit and reminisce whilst contemplating the ideal moment in time to capture.


With prices starting from £23.50, this is the perfect present for any occasion. Whether it is a birthday, an anniversary or purely because you feel in the giving mood. Own a Moment is allowing you to share something with people that made a moment in time so utterly special for you and them, it is a gift that will stand out and be remembered. 

Whilst thinking about giving the gift of time it would be lovely if you could also take the time to check out Own a Moment's Facebook page. You'll want to be the first to see future products and ideas that they have to offer!
