A Special Wish For You

“I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun”.
Charles R. Swindoll

As we grew up, many friends we made in our teen phase, did not transition into our adult lives. The few who did, we treasure especially when you live oceans apart with only technological options of communication.

After awhile, those WhatsApp and text conversations seem so impersonal. Delayed responses, the difference in time zones, career and family responsibilities, you can’t help but feel a void in your friendship, a gap in a once well-oiled machine.

How do you let someone know how much they mean to you when you are miles apart?

You send them a wish.

I’m not talking about waiting on a shooting star or a birthday wish. I’m talking about a physical, tangible, personalized wish.

That’s where A Wish For You comes in.

A Wish For You offers the services of delivering a small memento accompanied by a personal card with a message created by you; to share with someone special in your life.

When I came across their Instagram Page, I had just spoken to a friend of mine who’s expecting her first child next month. She was expressing some difficulties in her pregnancy and how she had to manage some of the responsibilities with the help of her grandmother because the father of her child was travelling for business.

She felt alone and although she didn’t admit it, I could tell she was scared.

I thought that their service would be the perfect way to show her that she wasn’t alone in her pregnancy. Kyra, the Engagement Director and her amazing team provided me with an excellent platform to do just that.

The Process

First, I had to choose a gift. I went with the Giraffe Night Light as an addition to the decoration of the nursery.

Browsing the website

Giraffe Lamp

Next, I had to choose a card to accompany the gift. Now, in my excitement, I totally missed this step. However, Kyra had my back! She sent me a quick message via Instagram to let me know of the issue and picked out a beautiful onesies card for my friend.

A Wish For You Greeting Card

The final step was to create a message to be included.

The day the package was delivered, my friend had just returned from the hospital, after a scare. The timing was perfect. I’m almost convinced that A Wish For you planned this.

The setup was too perfect.

The package was even wrapped in purple; my friend’s favourite colour and I had no discussions with the team about this.

I kid you not.

The Package received

The team went all out to make this quite special. My friend was beyond happy. She sent me several videos throughout the day with the night lamp.

Special shout out to Kyra, you made this an incredible experience. I will definitely be using this service again.

Guys, if you haven’t utilized this service, you definitely should. I will be providing you with a discount code on my social media. If you have used A Wish For You, let me know of your experience in the comment section.

    I just moved from Toronto to San Francisco. This is perfect for me to send to my friends in Toronto and friends in New York. I am sure my Mom would be happy and surprised to receive this in the mail.

    It is so hard to stay connected with those friends we had as we grow up. I am totally feeling that gap right now actually. A simple service like this could really make someones day!

    This really does sound like a wonderful service – seems quick and easy to use! And I’m a big fan of that! I also love how you have a personal story to accompany this service. Really is relatable!

    This is a great idea for gift giving! Personal and easy to accomplish. That night light would be a perfect baby shower gift.

    This is so thoughtful and unique. I do not have any friends close by from my childhood or college. We stay in touch via mails and messages.

    I’m at the age where most of the things I get in the mail are bills and wedding invitations so anytime I get a package I call it adult Christmas. I love this. The idea of just reaching out and showing your appreciation for someone in a small but serious way.

    • Sheviimc
      September 8, 2017 / 2:38 pm

      Lol adult Christmas…I love it. But the idea to reach out to someone unexpectedly is amazing. You just could be sending it on a day that they are lacking motivation and it boosts their day.

  17. September 7, 2017 / 4:01 pm

    What a great review, I would love to use this and send a gift to my friends. thank you for sharing your honest opinion about the service.

    It’s so thoughtful that they wrapped her gift in purple w/o being informed of her fave color.

  19. September 7, 2017 / 10:26 pm

    Love this so much! Very cool idea and love that color purple!

      Purple is a power colour. Thanks for reading Thena.

    This is exactly what I needed. I moved from illinois to North Carolina and something other than a electronic post is what I been looking for, again thanks
