Every new business starts with that first idea and for Oyster Moon it was our 25Words!
You know how it is? We've all been there, trying to find something a little different for that special birthday or occasion and as we all get on a bit and have so much - those gifts get harder to find. We found ourselves in the same boat and decided to design something unique where no two would be the same.
Our mum turned 85 (sorry mum, but you look great) and we thought what on earth could we possibly buy for her. So one afternoon, over a cup of tea, she told us about her first date with Dad. Dates, places, what they did and how special it was, what a great memory.
We took that special occasion and those words and turned them into a gift for her. She was thrilled and it makes her smile each time she looks at it.
It turns out that we also learned some things about our parents, a nickname our Nanny gave Dad and where the love of Newberry Fruits and Mars Bars started and so, captured in 25Words, the lovely afternoon they spent together at the cinema will live on down through the generations.
In the last two years, we've designed countless 25Words for people for all sorts of occasions and have heard back from many happy customers to say how much the gift was loved.
Doesn't get any better than that.
