When I shop for gifts I traditionally look for unique on of a kind gifts and personalized gifts, as I’ve said many times before I think they make gift giving way more fun and personalized gifts always make the best gifts if you ask me and when I get gifts and they are unique and/or personalized they are always my favorite gifts to receive! So when I was given the opportunity to choose a product to review from Personal Creations I was very excited and I can’t wait to show you all what I chose to review!

Personal Creations offered me a $40 gift certificate to choose any item I wanted to review and let me just say that with all the wonderful and many, many items they have to choose from what I though would be a relatively easy task, became a very difficult one and it took me some time to finally decide on the Embossed Name Initial Hoodie since it was around Christmas I also had to make the choice of if I wanted it for myself or as a gift for a family member but I finally decided to keep it for myself (since of course during the winter months and cold weather I live in hoodies :0)) and my hubby since it’s easily a unisex hoodie it’s perfect to share :0)!!! I decided for my Embossed Name Initial Hoodie to be a size M in Green with our last name Grant embossed on it….and here is a picture of me in my new hoodie and my little man!!!
Now, I have to say that I totally expected my hoodie to take a few weeks for it to arrive since it was personalized but I was very pleasantly surprised and excited when it showed up on my door step within a week of me requesting it! Of course the first thing I did when it arrived was to take it out and inspect the Embossing and the quality of the hoodie and just as I had expected it was perfect in every way and the hoodie and embossing is of very high quality!
Since receiving my new hoodie from Personal Creations I have worn it several times, including Christmas Eve to my in-laws house and I have to say that not only is it extremely comfortable and fits me very well, I’ve gotten so many compliments on it and so many people have asked me where to get one of their very own and I’m very happy to tell them that they can order their very own from Personal Creations for less than you can go to the local sports shop and buy your favorite Collage Football team hoodies….pretty awesome right……I totally think so!!
Like I said I got it so that my husband can wear it as well but I’m sorry to say that he has yet gotten to wear it because it’s so comfortable it has pretty much replaced all of my other hoodies and I wear it quite regularly so as you can imagine it’s been through the wash/dry process several times since it’s arrived and I’m very pleased with the way the hoodie has held up to the whole process and it still fits and looks like brand new!!!
I was also really debating on getting the Family Tree Throw as a review since I’m huge on Genealogy and I research our family’s constantly and on a daily basis so it was hard to past this up but like I told Chad Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and he is more than welcome to get it for me as my gift!
I absolutely love my Embossed Name Initial Hoodie and I know that it will be a regular in my wardrobe all through the cold Arkansas winter and the stitching as well as the quality of the hoodie are wonderful!!! I have had such amazing service and shipping from Personal Creations that I can guarantee that I will be coming back to Personal Creations for all my personalized gift giving needs and with “Bug’s” birthday just around the corner followed by Valentine’s Day I’m sure I will be finding both “Bug” and my husband some special little gifts!!
If you are looking for unique on of a kind personalized items without breaking the bank I high suggest checking out the amazing selection of items available at PersonalCreations and make giving a gift a whole new experience!!
