Expressions Of Love — I Love You to the Moon and Back

Posted by Lunar lamps on

How did the moon become a token of our love for those who mean the most to us? The prominently uttered phrase you’ll hear between two people who adore each other is, “I love you to the moon and back.” It truly epitomizes the deepest feelings experienced by people who care strongly for one another.

But the moon is much more romantic, mysterious, and awe-inspiring than mere words can attest. It represents something seen but never held, experienced but never truly reached. In short, the moon is a symbol of everything rich, loving, and life-altering in the world (and the entire galaxy).

Telling someone that you want to “give them” the moon means you want to show them the magic and wonder in life. Even the great George Bailey from the classic It’s a Wonderful Life offered to lasso the moon and pull it down for Mary, his sweetheart, so she could have it for her very own. 

What is it you want? Mary, you want the moon?

Lunar gifts are a constant mesmerizing reminder that someone, somewhere, is thinking of you with an unconditional kind of love in their heart. Which is why Lunar Lamps is proud to offer I Love You to the Moon and Back moon lamps for you and your special someone. 


I Love You To The Moon and Back

Sam McBratney knew that someone speaking their affection to you genuinely warranted an equally heartfelt response aside from merely returning the sentiment in kind.

He decided not only to originate a term of endearment but to write a book showcasing the gesture between a father bunny and his child entitled Guess How Much I Love You. He would go on to say, “I love you to the moon and back.” 


The phrase expresses how infinite love is between two people, whether it be a mother and her child or a romantic couple or two lifelong friends. After all, the distance to the actual moon and back is almost 500,000 miles! 

‘To the moon and back’ implies a long-lasting, unbreakable bond that reaches both your loved one’s innermost heart and the edges of the galaxy. 

What better way to represent that bond than with a “real” moon you can hold in your hands?


Give the Gift of the Moon

The moon is a symbol of romanticism and has been since the beginning of time. “Live by the sun, love by the moon” is the adage most people follow. For generations, partners declare their intentions to capture the moon in honor of their mate as a measure to show how far they will go to prove the depths of their feelings.

To this day, people have a strong belief that the moon has a significant effect on their lives. That symbolism makes a moon lamp a thoughtful and meaningful gift. Of course, people haven’t always been able to give a physical representation of their love in the shape of the Earth’s moon.

The good news is that modern technology has enabled Lunar Lamps to create flawless miniatures of the real moon. A perfectly replicated mini-moon that your partner, child, or other loved one can cradle in their hands represents the depth of your love.

A personalized or custom moon lamp might be the perfect way to show someone how much you care about them. A photograph or special saying showcases that you love them all the way to the moon and back again.

It might be impossible to lasso the moon for your lover or give your child a close-up glimpse of its craters. But with a Lunar Lamp to share with someone special, you can bring a little more magic and wonder to their everyday life. 


I Love You to… Jupiter?

Of course, the moon isn’t the only galactic gift you can give the budding astronomer in your life. Lunar Lamps also offers a Jupiter lamp to gift or enjoy all on your own. Stunningly realistic 3D printing makes Jupiter look closer than life, if not larger.

‘I love you to Jupiter and back’ might not sound as catchy as a moon reference, but it’s true that the planet is much farther away. A love that extends to Jupiter and back makes an over one billion mile round-trip. That’s a whole lotta love! Start building your own lamp universe with Jupiter, the moon, or both.
