My husband, Bruce, and I invited a college student, Benjamin, to our home for Christmas break, as it looked like he'd spend most of his break without family. Benjamin is from Taiwan, and got these stamps for us - how perfect! Bruce is definitely not a Chinese name, so his stamp (seal) is the symbol for forest, as Bruce means "out of the thicket." (I'm sure the Christian market has invented a spiritual meaning for the name, but we're really not into that...). My name, Sarah, means princess, so that is the symbol on mine. (The first symbol means king, the second means daughter). What an absolutely perfect gift! They are carved out of Agate, which means a very time-consuming effort went into these. They're very beautiful.
