If someone buys a house on the Cape and rewards themselves with a charcuterie board with a Cape Cod image on antique wood from a house in the same town, it’s easy to see why that would be a fun present for themselves. Similarly, if someone gets married on the harbor and is given a large serving tray with a compass rose, dock cleats for handles, and name, date, and location added to the artwork, it’s a unique gift that they can continue to appreciate over time. But these products are also intended to maximize the little moments, too.
It can be easy to recognize the big events like a move or a marriage. But what about the end of a tough week, the small victory at work, a family member coming to visit, or reconnecting with a spouse over a homemade romantic dinner?
So much of life and relationships unfolds in those smaller moments. But the hope is that these products create an excuse to spend time bonding as you put together a broader array of offerings on your tray, or added conversation about Cape Cod’s maritime history, or appreciating the simple joy of coming back from the beach, heading to the outdoor shower, and hanging your beach towels up on a whale shaped towel rack with dock cleats for hangers.
Will these products change your life? Nope. But given all of life’s tougher moments, and how fast years can fly by, they can be little ways to pause, appreciate who you’re with, and maximize your moments.
