Vizardz Unique Personalized Lighted Gifts {Review & Giveaway}

Vizardz logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Dree Getz!}

There aren't too many days that go by when I don't take photos. Whether it's for this blog or at one of my girls' activities or just the family hanging out together, there are always so many occasions that I want to capture forever.

The sad part? All of those photos then sit in a file on my computer, possibly making an appearance on here, but most likely just sorted into a folder by their date to sit there with no end in sight. A few that I really love get printed out and put in a frame, or maybe included in a card, or even turned into a project like a calendar... but sometimes I feel like there needs to be a way to really highlight those photos and memories that were truly special and meaningful.

Fortunately, I've been introduced to just that way in the form of Vizardz and their extremely unique lighting products.

VizardzA breakthrough in the future of photography, Vizardz has turned traditional photographs into something tangible with 3D sculptures and 2.5D photos. Their technology has the ability to transform any digital photo into something completely stunning - with depth, texture, contrast and clarity.

Sounds pretty amazing, doesn't it?

Having seen these incredible products in person at the ABC Kids Expo and the way that the addition of light transforms the 2.5D picture into a jaw-dropping 3D rendering, I couldn't wait to turn one of my own photos into a unique, personalized piece of art.

Although Vizardz's Light Boxes are gorgeous and their Ornaments put me in awe, it was their Personalized Night Lights that ultimately caught my attention the most, as I knew that it was something that my daughters would be thrilled to see. Whether in the living room so that we could admire it later in the evening or in the hallway where it could provide a path to the bathroom for late-night trips, a night light from Vizardz is much more than the ordinary.

Ordering directly from their website couldn't have been easier, as once I had decided on my photograph, it only took a minute to select the size (night lights are available as 3 x 4.5" and 4 x 6"), full color or monochrome, and the quantity. Seconds later I had my picture uploaded and all that was left to do was wait.

Only a short time later, a very well-packed box from Vizardz arrived and I ripped into it to see my girls turned from this...

sisters...into a sensational 2.5D creation.

The mostly-white insert had a delicate yet durable feel to it and was rough to the touch. Sliding it right in to the night light frame...

Vizardz night light...it looked like a white-washed, somewhat bumpy version of my photo.

Vizardz night lightHowever, once I plugged the base into an outlet and turned it on, that's when the remarkable, striking effect took place.

Vizardz reviewHow cool! I do wish that I had chosen a horizontal photograph so that it would have taken up more of the space, but even with the extra room on the sides, this is such a great way to preserve my girls in such a unique way. Due to the accessible on/off switch right on the bottom, it only takes a moment to have this displayed nearly anywhere in the house.

Retailing for $58.95, this 4x6" Personalized 2.5D Night Light is such a memorable and sentimental way to preserve and share with loved ones. Plus, as Vizardz offers you the ability to purchase a replacement insert (as opposed to the full night light again) for $27.50, you can easily update the picture as children grow or to commemorate a special occasion.

This holiday season, we've all seen traditional photo gifts such as books, calendars, blankets, keychains, and more. Instead of making your family member another mug with a picture on the side, transform a treasured image into a sensational product that will stand out in their home for years to come.

From family to vacations to new babies to pets to loved ones no longer with us, a Night Light, Light Box or Ornament from Vizardz is sure to touch a special place in your recipient's heart. Even better, why not save yourself a little bit with a discount? Enter the coupon code Happy20 at checkout and receive 20% off of your order until December 31, 2011!

And, thanks to the generosity of Vizardz, one person will be able to create a beautiful work of art that will light up the life of someone they know (or themselves!) because...

One lucky person will win their choice of a 4 x 6" Personalized 2.5D Night Light OR Light Box from Vizardz!
