In the last 2 years, Medisave has witnessed a steady rise in a trend towards medical professionals proposing using the laser engraving personalization facility on the Littmann® Stethoscopes range. What started as a rare occurrence, the website in more recent months seen a steady increase in using the engraving facility to surprise the recipient of the gift with a marriage proposal.
Medisave Partner Melissa Denton says:
“This is a global trend which is increasing in popularity but we have recently noticed a real surge in the USA. I believe this is because 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscopes have added some great new finishes and colours, that we engrave symbols such as hearts, but just as importantly we gift wrap and ship very quickly. We have express shipping options so can get a special gesture sent out in time for an anniversary, valentine’s day or a special occasion. We recently had one guy needing the stethoscope the next day for his girlfriend's 30th birthday party that evening. We really wanted to know the outcome so he called the day after to say she had burst into tears and said yes. The thought had only occurred to him when he was watching Grey’s Anatomy. He was intending to propose anyway and had bought a ring but didn’t feel it was special enough. He said he had always joked that she was married to her job and this seemed a humorous, fitting and romantic way to ask her to marry him – not to mention unusual. He even teamed the tubing color (hunter green) to match her eyes! We all love a happy outcome.”
Medisave is used to seeing unusual and amusing names being requested, and the occasional “Happy Birthday” and “Good Luck” messages teamed with symbols and gift wrapping. However, the proposals have seen a real rise in popularity. Predictably it is the Littmann Stethoscope which is the product of choice, and the feel good factor generated in personalizing with a proposal means the staff at Medisave are always smiling. Thankfully they must have the lucky touch because so far every recipient has said yes! There have also been proposals in other languages, but as Melissa says “the language of love is universal”.
