Little Big Hero is a foundation in memory of 3-year-old Liam who died of leukemia 7 months ago.  The foundation supports patients of local children hospitals.  For example, members of the foundation will send clowns to visit patients.  Additionally, they will provide music therapy.   Cancer research is another objective of the foundation.

Liam touched many hearts.  Using Reminderbands is a way for family and others to remember Liam.  This is a way to show support and to help other children in need.

The Continual Love Project is a Non-Profit Organization, which is all about ensuring and promoting love as well as providing guidance to ones who are in need.  They help adults, parents, students, and children alike.

The CL Project recently purchased Marquee Rectangle wristbands with motivational phrases to give away to whoever needs encouragement–from being in hospitals for treatments to being in a household with little to no income or even to being homeless.

You go through this every year. You’ve tried all the usual things, from the basket of lotion and body spray for your significant other, to the high-cost gizmo that you think is the coolest thing since the moon landing. Often times, your gift recipient is merely “whelmed” by your attempt at a kind gesture. Maybe he or she is the person who has everything, or maybe they’re just too darn particular. What’s a person to do?

You’ve learned from your missteps, you’ve tested the waters of gift-giving diversification. You’ve spent more money than you care to admit on presents that just didn’t rock the socks off them. Maybe now you think you’re a more discerning and seasoned giver of gifts. Perhaps this time, you can find that million-dollar idea without spending an amount equal to the national debt. And, just maybe, that laughably affordable gift can actually mean something and be (dare we say it?) creative, and thoughtful! If any of this sounds familiar, read on. This is worth the scroll.

Boatloads of people have found the “secret sauce” of gifting. It’s affordable, classy, and it’s creative. You can buy it without leaving the chair, and you can customize it without needing a degree in graphic design. Any guesses?

We’re talking about personalized silicone bracelets.

We know what you’re thinking: “Aren’t those the LIVESTRONG wristbands everyone wore like 10 years ago?” Well, you’d be correct. But what you may not know is that thousands of couples, boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives, cave trolls, etc, take to the depths of the internet every month to seek out a personalized wristband for him/her to profess their undying love in a colorful and unique way. These rubber bracelets are easy as pie to design from the comfort of your computer or smartphone. Speaking of which: they aren’t actually rubber, they’re silicone, but it’s a lot easier to describe them as rubber to the uninitiated, so in our book the two are synonymous. They have that “rubber” feel, but they’re latex-free, so extra points go to you for thinking of a touching gift that won’t trigger any allergies. You’re just all kinds of considerate.

“I don’t feel that creative. How would I personalize a bracelet for my true love?”

Well, first of all, don’t be so hard on yourself–you’re great. Secondly, this post is for everyone, not just youthful people caught up in twitterpation and boundless passion for life. You may need a personalized wristband for your girlfriend or boyfriend, or maybe you drew names for your family Christmas gift exchange and you got your younger brother, Kenneth. You’re going to need to come up with a snarky quote for a wristband that’ll put that little weasel in his place (in a loving way, of course).

Pick a band (1).pngWhether your gift is for someone you love platonically or hopelessly, we’ve got an arsenal of ideas for you to use to make your wristband a home run. We’ve been doing this a long time; since 2004 to be exact. You can imagine the phrases and sayings we’ve seen on silicone wristbands over the years. Some of them have made us laugh, some have made us swoon, and some of them we can’t really repeat out loud.

With our online bracelet maker, you can put just about anything on your wristband, or many wristbands, if you like. That way, you can make it be one of those cute couple silicone bracelet sets so you can wear your heart on your sleeve (seriously, we have a heart-shaped wristband. You can literally wear it on your sleeve).

“What should I write on my wristband?”

Ah, the possibilities… For starters, some of our most popular sayings and messages for silicone wristbands are ones like these:

  • “I love my girlfriend”
  • “I love my boyfriend”
  • “True Love Waits”
  • “One Love”
  • “#1 Wife”
  • “#1 Husband”
  • “Love”
  • “I Love You”

I mean, that last one isn’t that original, but why break with the old standby, right? Combine that with some lovely color styles and slide that wristband on and it’ll be super-effective! Additionally, we often see phrases like “I Love Basketball” or “I Love Football”. We get that. Sometimes all you need is the warm embrace of the pigskin to console you from the harsh realities of life. No judgment here.

“What are some different ways I can use custom wristbands?”

Great question, reader! Beyond the aforementioned ideas, there are myriad ways to let your creativity burst through in the form of glorious silicone bracelets. Since we’re on the topic of couples and love, here is just a sampling of ideas for uses:

  • Wedding/Engagement Announcements
  • Bachelorette/Bachelor Party Favors
  • Anniversaries
  • Matching His and Hers Wristbands
  • Stocking Stuffers!

Bonus: Check out our silicone dog tags. They’re also perfect for your boyfriend/girlfriend, significant other, or your dog, of course. They come in necklace, or keychain form. We really did try to think of everything.

Hopefully, you’ve learned some things about rubber bracelets, and maybe even yourself. Either way, you should be primed and ready for delivering an impactful gift or show of love with a nice-looking wristband! We’ve got plenty more ideas for you over at Reminderband, so take a look while you’re contemplating how to be the most considerate person ever. Or maybe you just want one of our awesome tire-tread wristbands for yourself, because hey, you’ve earned it.

Meet Ava-Lynn.  Ava was diagnosed with congenital CMV (Cytomegalovirus) in utero and has endured many complications from this infection since birth. Her parents say: “It has been a roller coaster ride since she arrived, but she is rocking it.”  

They created a Facebook page to raise awareness for CMV, share their story and find different avenues to give Ava the best options for success.  

Ava’s parents are starting a fundraising campaign called ‘Ava’s Walk Into the Future” for Ava to undergo a procedure to help with her spastic cerebral palsy. The expectation that surgery will be successful is high, but the procedure is expensive.  

By sharing Ava’s story, her parents hope to prevent #cmvinfection, raise #cmvawareness and #walkintothefuturewithava.

They are giving Reminderband wristbands to everyone who is supporting fundraising efforts for their daughter.
