Give The Best Gift Ever With Songfinch – A Personalized Song For That Special Person

I love music and I can definitely say that music has been a huge part of my life. I remember back when I was younger, I would turn to music either when I was happy or sad; especially when I was heartbroken. There’s something about hearing someone sing some words accompanied by a melody that makes it so heartfelt and extremely relatable. I absolutely remember I used to cry while listening to a song when I was trying to mend a broken heart; while I used to feel really in love and happy when I was listening to cheery songs. And for some people, music has become their way of expressing how they feel which is why people write songs.

I have one problem with songs written by song writers though. I am not able to find that one song to describe how I am exactly feeling. Sure I’ll be able to find a couple of lines from this song and that song that I can relate to; but I haven’t been able to find that perfect song that tells my story from start to finish. And that’s because they’ve written their songs from their own experience, not mine.

Today, I’ve partnered with Songfinch to bring you a personalized song written just for you which you can give any special person in your life for any occasion. Be it for your partner, your kid/s, your parents, your sibling/s, or your friend, you can definitely have a song written just for them.

About Songfinch

Songfinch realized the value of story-worthy moments shared between family and friends during day-to-day events or special occasions. They know that people would rather own the moment than own a product. Because of this, as well as their deep-rooted passion for bringing stories to life, they created a way for people to celebrate those experiences through a medium that speaks to the soul: music. They’ve built, and continue to grow, an incredible community of like-minded songwriters who are equally passionate about their craft. Acting as “musical matchmakers,” Songfinch connect customers and their stories to the perfect songwriter to give words new life and feeling. You can read more about them here.

How To Have A Personalized Song Written

Initially, you have to give Songfinch 3 information – (1) who you’re giving the song to and what’s your relationship with that person, (2) the occasion that you are celebrating, and (3) what desired reaction would you like the recipient to have once he/she hears the song. Once you’ve answered all of these, you’ll be taken to a new page where you’re going to be asked to share your story. You have to share specific stories and details that will help paint a vivid picture for the songwriter to work with.

I love that they’ve included some writing tips on that page to guide you on what you need to share; otherwise, I wouldn’t have known what to share with them. Some of their suggestions are about the first time you and the recipient have met, about the recipient’s personality, and about the activities that you and the recipient enjoy doing together.

Tip: If you really want your song to be as personalized as it could possibly be, be as detailed as possible when sharing your story which is what I did.

Once you’ve entered all the details, you will be asked to choose a few more things to help personalize the song even more – mood of the song (you can select up to 2), the vocalist (male, female, or surprise), and the genre. Once you’ve made your preferences, you will be asked to review all the details. And when you’re done, you can then add your personalized song to your cart and pay for it.

An email confirmation will be sent to you with all the details of what’s going to happen next. If in case they determine that more information is needed, Songfinch will be reaching out to you to gather more details. Within 7 days, your song will be finished. By this time, you will get your personalized song, a customizable greeting card, and a home page that houses your song which you can use to share your personalized song with the recipient and others (if you choose to).

About My Personalized Song

Since my husband and I were about to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary when Songfinch reached out to me, I thought it would be perfect to have a personalized song written for him. He has been nothing but amazing and I would like to remind him how much I love him and how much I appreciate everything he has done and has been doing for me and our family.

My husband is the reason behind my sanity despite having a full-time work, 2 active toddlers who always test my patience, running a blog, and sometimes working on additional projects on the side. And I hope, through this personalized song from Songfinch, he’ll know exactly how I feel. He actually has no idea up to this point about the song I had written for him so I’m excited to see his reaction.

Just to give you a glimpse of how blessed I am – My parents stayed with us for 6 months to help us out. And right around the time they’re about to leave, I would always tell my husband I’m scared and I don’t know how we’re going to manage with everything. He would always tell me we’d be able to (he’s a man of few words); but I honestly didn’t get reassured by those words. Between us, he’s the optimist – he doesn’t want to think things will go wrong; and I’m the worrier – I always like to think about the worst scenarios and have a plan ready to address those.

And when my parents had finally left, you know what my husband did? He offered to cook during week days so I can get more sleep (I used to wake up in the wee hours of night to cook so I have time during the day after we get home from work to spend with the kids instead of cooking), spend time with the kids, and focus on my blog and other side projects. He also does most of the cleaning at home which leaves me with laundry (which he helps out with too), cooking on weekends, and taking care of (which he helps out with too) & spending time with the kids. Isn’t he amazing?

As I’m sure you’re curious to find out how my personalized song turned out, I’m going to let you listen to it. I also created a little slideshow (which I’m not an expert with) to go along with the song.

Wherever We Are

You and I have been through so much
Since we met in freshman year
From Manila to America
Everywhere we’ve been
Has lead us here

Miles between us
The distance was tough
But I took a chance cuz I knew it was love
Now I thank God for you every day
Hasn’t always been easy
But worth the wait

We could go out exploring
Or sit on the beach
I know you’d do anything to make me happy
We could travel the world near or far
But I’ll always love you wherever we are

Now we’ve got a beautiful daughter and son
And a life of our own
You help with all the day to day challenges
To make our house a home
You don’t have to say much to show me care
You’ve got your own special way
And nobody compares
Now I thank God for you every night
I know that you’ll always be by my side

We could go out exploring
Or sit on the beach
I’d do anything to make you happy
We could travel the world near or far
But I’ll always love you wherever we are

We could go on adventures
Stay home and watch TV
I’d be happy as long as you were with me
We could travel the world near or far
But I’ll always love you wherever we are

Wherever we are

Wherever we are

Wherever we are

I hope you loved the song as much as I do. I had actually selected “Surprise me” in the genre selection because I couldn’t make up my mind so I was a bit anxious about it. But I am so happy with how the personalized song turned out. You can check out my song’s home page here.

  • I definitely know what you mean about how most songs really aren’t quite right for your exact feelings or exact situation. Like, I like the country song “Remember When” as an anniversary song, but actually all of the events in the song are nothing like my own marriage so it wouldn’t really make much sense for us, I just think it’s a sweet song. 😛 So personalized songs are a good idea!
