What Makes Willow Tree Gifts So Unique?

For thousands of satisfied and delighted customers all around the world, the many gifts which can be purchased from Willow Tree are expressions of pure and unadulterated love. The gifts from the much-beloved company are especially popular in the Christian community and are a mainstay in many Christian bookstores and gift shops all over. What is it that makes these gifts, especially the willow tree angel, so eternally popular?

The artist who hand designs each one, Susan Lordi, thinks that it may be due to the fact that the figurines are all carved with no facial expressions. In fact, they have no faces at all. This simple but unique design leaves the interpretation of each figure completely up to the giver of the present, and also the receiver. There are no pre-determined masks of happiness or joy, the emotions which each figurine convey is left up to the imagination of each individual. 

The blank expressions also give a sense of innocence without relying on smarmy artistic tricks to pull at the heartstrings of those who look upon them. Many customers claim it is these unique facets which give the figurines a much more personal touch than other companies who make figurines. 

Although the figurines are manufactured en masse, they are all produced from Susan Lordi's original cast and they are also all painted by hand. This makes each figurine ever so slightly unique, as when something is painted by hand, no two pieces can ever be quite the same. 

It is for all of these reasons, and many more, that people keeping flocking to the innocent and pure beauty that defines each and every Willow Tree gift. By supporting businesses that truly care about the people around them, the customers are doing their part to make the world a better place.
