Personal Creations Stoneware Casserole Dish {Review}

Personal Creations logo
Now that the holidays have arrived, as I wrap I like to take the time to evaluate the gifts that I ended up purchasing to see if I feel as though they fulfilled their role of making the season special.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with purchasing items that are prepackaged and ready to go, but there's a part of me that always trys to keep a lookout for companies that can provide something with... a little bit more. That uniqueness that is going to make my recipient know I care.

Which is exactly why it's easy to see that the 3,000+ high quality, personalized gifts for every occasion offered at Personal Creations make finding the perfect item for family and friends on my list for the holidays (as well as weddings, new babies, graduations, birthdays and more) fast and fun.

If you are looking to purchase only the finest personalized gifts available — ones that will create lasting memories and provide years of enjoyment — then be sure to visit this holiday season and beyond.

With so many great gift ideas, it is always difficult to narrow down the selection at Personal Creations... but on my recent shopping trip there, I decided that it was time to splurge on something just for me.

I've admired the Stoneware Casserole Dishes at Personal Creations multiple times in the past and couldn't wait for this stylish, high quality personalized gift to arrive just for me!

When it did, I was extremely pleased with how well packed and protected this stoneware was, as Personal Creations had all but eliminated the possibility of chips or cracks during shipping.

After unwrapping the last of the bubble wrap, this gorgeous 16½" L x 10" W x 2½" H dish was immediately calling out for me to head into the kitchen!

Along with the shine of the glaze on the rich burgundy (this dish is also available in cobalt blue and deep green), the flared edges, even ridges and comfortable handles make this a perfect piece of cookware to reach for in any number of dishes.

Even better, Personal Creations has ensured that this stoneware dish is lead-free, microwave, oven and dishwasher safe, so there is no worry about what might happen when you cook with it or how difficult it is going to be to clean!

However, the icing on the cake for this piece is the way that it can be skillfully hand-etched with any message (one line, up to 25 characters). What a great way to really show your recipient that you were thinking of them and have found a one-of-a-kind gift!

I love the way that my name is revealed coming from underneath the burgundy, so it is clear that it wasn't an afterthought to just scratch it on there. Instead, the next time I'm cooking for my family, I'm bringing a dish to share at a potluck, or I'm helping a friend with a new baby or in a time of need with a homemade meal, I'll have the extra sense of pride of being able to serve it right in this personalized dish.

A Personal Creations exclusive, the Stoneware Casserole Dish retails for $44.99 and makes a thoughtful holiday gift (as well as birthday, shower, wedding and more) to show your care for your recipient now and all year long.

Whether you're shopping for adults or kids (or yourself), there are a vast variety of wonderful gifts that has to offer. For any age, interest, style or personality, you're sure to find something that will be well-received and cherished this holiday season and beyond.

(Other than the complimentary product that I received from to facilitate my review, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion of this site and this item.)

I can see homemade mac and cheese or sweet potato casserole in this dish on my table at Christmas, with my name on it! Thanks for the review, I think I'll send a link to my parents!
