Frecklebox Personalized Storybook Review & $40 Gift Card Giveaway

Winner Comment #163 - debijackson said ent thomas/toby pkg

I love to give personalized gifts.  There's just something so personal about them:)  Whenever I see cups or keychains, or any other premade name item, I always have to check to see if my name is on one.  Sadly, Alena is not a very common name, and I've never seen it on anything.  But I still have to check.

My oldest daughter also has a very uncommon name, and being just like me, I know that she would absolutely love to  have something made just for her.  With that in mind I decided to search the web for something that was uniquely her to include in my birthday event.

I found just what I was looking for at Frecklebox with their personalized books. I know I've mentioned before how much my girls love horses and unicorns - 


How perfect is that!  And  her name wasn't just placed on the cover, but incorporated into every page. 

When my daughter first opened the book, she looked so surprised.  "The Unicorn knows my name!"    Then we read it again, and again, and again.    In the book, the Unicorn uses her magic powers to spell my daughters name wherever she can.  Her name is spelled out in a rainbow, in flowers, and even the clouds.  It was definitely a hit.

Besides books, Frecklebox  carries a wide range of completely personalizable items.   I really love their personalized lunch boxes, and personalized notebooks.



To Buy - The personalized storybooks come in either hardbound for $34.95 or softbound for $19.95.  The books are high quality, and did a great job incorporating my daughters name in a natural way.

To Win - Frecklebox is giving away a $40 gift code to one of you!

    I think books that incorporate children's names are very special too. I remember a Christmas when my little sister got a personalized book. I believe she still has it. I love that lunchbox, too cute! Thanks for coming by and entering my cottage giveaway. Good luck and have a wonderful holiday weekend!
    I'm not sure which one came by and entered my cottage giveaway, but thanks! Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

    I have bought personalized gifts. It's very fabulous and beneficial for me. I like this so much and want to recommend to other's as well. You can buy and avail $5 off on all your purchases. If you use this coupon code: COUPON05. I had been relying on www.mymiraclebaby.com earlier and they too offered good stuff.
