With Big Sister E's fourth birthday drawing near, I can't help but reminisce on what a great time we had last year. Going with a Rock Star Party theme, we had invitations, cake, decorations, outfits and more that set the mood and just gave the festivities an extra boost of fun for everyone.
A personal favorite for me was being able to send Big Sister E's friends home with something special from the party as well. I always like goodie bags (what kid doesn't want to take home a little present of their own?) but last year I was able to do something more by sending home our party guests with their own personalized coloring books courtesy of the site that really is known for top quality, unique personalized gifts: Frecklebox.
When it comes time for a gift that is well-made, unique and has that personal touch that makes it special, Frecklebox has you covered. From items for home, school or just for fun, you won't find this level of stylish design and whimsy anywhere else - and the lucky young recipient of your gift will be able to enjoy it for years and years to come.
Which is exactly what I was counting on when Big Sister E's very good friend had a birthday party recently. After fretting over what the perfect gift would be for a day or two, it hit me. I wanted something beautifully constructed, one-of-a-kind and, ahem, available soon (procrastinate? Me?).
As soon as I saw the My Name Is Personalized Book in Frecklebox's collection of personalized books, I knew it was the one. With stunning nature pictures that work together to tell a story and include the child's name worked in, I couldn't wait to see it in person. After how great the coloring books from a year ago had turned out, would a Frecklebox storybook live up to the high standards that had been set?
Without a doubt.
First of all, creating and customizing this book was done in a matter of minutes and I was even able to see a full preview before I placed the order, which was great. Second of all, I completed my book late on a Thursday morning... and on Friday evening I received an email from Frecklebox confirming that it had been shipped. I love fast service!
When the book arrived a few days later, it was all I could do to not want to order another for myself. The 8" x 8" size is just right for kids to easily hold it and the bright, glossy pictures are clear and eye-catching. Best of all, Erin's name wasn't just dropped into the storyline here and there, it was the focus of the book and displayed prominently throughout the pages.
As with all of Frecklebox's great stories and artwork, the child's name isn't just included as an addition, it is the center of the piece and it is beautifully done.
The reaction from the birthday girl (as well as other children and adults that have seen it) has been overwhelmingly positive about this gift. This is truly something that will be a favorite for an incredibly long time and I couldn't be happier about having given a present with that much meaning that was unlike any other that Erin received.
From personalized placemats to celebrate eating like a big kid to personalized lunch boxes to carry proudly to school, Frecklebox has a gift for any occasion, big or small. For birthdays, holidays or just childhood (the personalized growth charts are really cute!) you will always end up with a unique, charming gift that is sure to please.
