Act now…for the best gift ever!

Monogram, personalize it, I know I sound like a broken record.  But a gift that you have taken the time to make personal really hits a home run…people love this stuff.  You do have to plan ahead a bit, sometimes it takes longer to get a gift that is monogrammed.  But you have time – if you act now!  Here are a few of my favorites…

  • Sticks and StonesBrad and Jera Deal used to go “letter hunting” with their children. They would snap photos of anything they saw that looked like a letter. Fences, trees, buildings, and more. Jera had the amazing idea to create a gift out of their letter finds. She spelled out her daughter’s teacher in black and white letters. The result was amazing! What a great piece of art. You type in your name and simply pick from the different styles of letters. I had a great time creating mine. I can’t even begin to count the number of compliments that I get on this unique piece of art. This is a great idea for a gift – especially a Christmas gift! Look closely at the picture below…it spells out FAMILY.


  • Create a coffee blend that suits your favorite person to a tee.  You use the online MyBlend quiz to get the perfect custom roast for your recipient…then you can upload a photo for the label.  What a great idea!  At only $25 for two bags this makes a great & affordable gift.


  • How about a personalized Eli’s Cheesecake?  You can mix and match flavors and toppings – even add a custom message.  Super yummy.
  • 18A custom designed purse starting at only $28(they do go way up in price…so shop carefully)?  You betcha!  Choose from over 35 blank slate purses, makeup bags, or cushions and then pick your designer fabrics to make it ultra cool…and one of a kind.
  • 18How about custom beer labels?  This would make a great gift for my husband.  He brews his own beer and we always made custom birth announcement beers to give out when we had our girls.  Way better than a cigar.  At least I think so.  I love this dog label..they also have photo labels too.
