Gift-Giving with RedEnvelope {Hall Gallery Frame Set Review & $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Addison K.A.T.!}

Do you sometimes feel like you're always searching for just the right gift? Between birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, new babies, bridal showers, to thank someone, to just show appreciation... I sometimes wish there was a standard list or site to go to in order to find just the perfect gift for each and every occasion.

Fortunately, RedEnvelope feels the same way. Their unique and wide-ranging collection of gifts for adults, babies, kids and the home are carefully selected so that the moment when your recipient opens their package will be just as touching and heartfelt as you could hope for. From wedding gifts to Christmas gifts, the hardest part about shopping at RedEnvelope is deciding between all of the options available.

I am constantly on the lookout for home decorating ideas because, well, I'm just never satisfied with the decor that we have. Over the years I've made my poor husband move art from one room to another... or replace one with a different purchase... or, and this is the most common, take it down completely so that I can put up more pictures of our daughters. I can't help it, they're cute!

So when I saw the Hall Gallery Frame Set on RedEnvelope.com, I knew that it would combine just the right amount of style and quality into an easily-changeable, unique-looking piece.

I love gallery displays of photographs, there is something about having them clustered together that always makes each one more meaningful. However, the amount of time that goes into trying to line up individual frames and get them hung on the wall so that they are level and spaced correctly can oftentimes start to drive me a little crazy. This Set is the solution!

As soon as the RedEnvelope box arrived, I knew that I was going to like the finished look. Even the box itself was modern and clean and each frame and piece was individually wrapped and protected to prevent any sort of damage or scratches.

As I laid out all of the parts, I pretty much didn't need the included instructions because RedEnvelope made installing this Frame Set so straightforward and easy. However, after a minute or two with a tape measure and a level, I had the paper template taped on the wall and was ready to mark the holes for drilling.

By marking three sets of two holes, I took down the template and proceeded to put up the nickel-plated hanging bar without any problem - it was even labeled to show me which was the right side and which was the left.

As each of the 11 frames were labeled A through G, it only took a second to hook them to their designated spot on the bar or to each other and have the finished product beautifully ready to display my photographs.

The only hard part for me is deciding which 11 pictures I want to show off in this amazing display! I love the formal look and how well the symmetry works to make this a perfect fit in our home or with just about any style (this Set also comes in an espresso finish if the black isn't your thing).

All of the hardware is high quality and strong and changing out the photographs is even easier than with traditional frames because there is no fiddling with getting them on and off of the wall and making sure they aren't crooked. This will surely be one piece of decor that stays up for years to come!

When it comes to gift-giving, RedEnvelope makes it simple and fun. Their apparel, jewelry, accessories, plants, gourmet treats, gadgets and items for babies, kids and the home are sure to impress for your next event or occasion. Many of their products can even be personalized with a monogram or custom message to make them even more special and come in their signature red box with grosgrain ribbon - what more can you ask for?

How about a discount? Enter the promo code 10OFFRED now and receive 10% off of your next purchase at RedEnvelope.com! But wait, that's not all. Thanks to their generosity one person will be able to have their next high quality, unique gift picked out and delivered, because...

I would have to say the Newlywed Cooking Kit is definitely a favorite! I'm engaged and getting married soon! My fiance and I love to cook and entertain so being able to win the certificate to put towards this would be wonderful!

I'm a huge fan of Red Envelope, and have bought many things from them over the years - that picture frame set is something I've been coveting for a good while!

So it's reaaaalllly not easy picking out my 'favorite' - I like the twist candlesticks and the year of seeds collection very much.

I LOVE red envelope! I received a wedding gift ordered from this company five years ago, and it still looks beautiful today! Not to be a cop out, but I also love the wall gallery frame you ordered! I too love the look of a picture gallery but hate actually hanging the pictures. That's probably why I haven't ever done it!
