Buying a present for close family members and friends is a daunting task, and in a world where everyone has everything they need and then some, you must think outside the box. A holding hands cast can speak volumes about the unspoken bonds between families, particularly in the sense of a relationship between siblings. Whether it’s the caring older brother protecting his little sister, two brothers embraced instead of play fighting or the sisters who are bound to be ‘best friends forever’; a sculpture truly does say a thousand words. You can also opt for a whole family cast, showing the closeness of the unit, and making a perfect and welcome addition to the family home.
Because of this sentimental attachment, these sculptures make the perfect present for parents, and you will see their faces light up when they realise it’s not just any hands; it’s their children’s hands, taking it to a whole new level of emotion. Grandparents can arrange the cast while on babysitting duties to retain the element of surprise, or organise a day out with the grandkids and get a mould taken; a fun day out for you all and a fabulous present for the parents who really deserve it! Alternatively, if you’re stuck for what to get your other half and are looking to ‘win’ the battle of the gifts, a holding hands cast is also an ideal option. An inspired gift for your partner to show how much you appreciate all that they do and encapsulate all the love and trust of your little family.
Holding hands casts are available in a variety of materials, including bronze or aluminium cold cast, foundry bronze, sterling silver and glass. Each brings something different to the table, and the best one for you depends on the needs, wants and priorities of the recipient. Each material captures every line, fold, and crease perfectly for a beautiful end-result and a sculpture that can take pride of place and be the focal feature of any room.
If you’re set on a holding hands cast but have left it just too late to arrange, fear not, for you can always opt for casting vouchers. These can be sent to yourselves or directly to the recipient including a personalised message, and can be used for holding hand casts, as well as framed and free-standing casts. Simply fill out our online order form and they’ll be on their way to you in no time!
We hope this has provided further insight into the beauty of holding hands casts and why they make the most thoughtful of presents. If you find yourself with some questions about the sculptures, or any other aspect of the casting process, please don’t hesitate to contact us today, and we’d be happy to speak to you in further detail.
