I am a member of the Everywhere Society and Everywhere has provided me compensation for this post. However all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Do you have someone on your list this year that you just can’t decide what to get for them?  You know you want to give them something a little special but haven’t been able to hit the proverbial nail on the head when it comes to choosing.  How about giving them the gift of personal branding?

Get a Me Website - Domain.Me the personal domain name

If you look at Instagram and Twitter it’s easy to see that it’s not just brands companies or blogs that are getting social or putting their name on things.  Everyday folks (and more pets than I can count) want the chance to be heard or share what’s on their mind.  And now with a domain .ME website it’s easier than ever to carve out an online presence.

I received product samples from Treat in exchange for sharing this information.  All words and opinions are my own.

As I’ve mentioned a few times, I’ve always loved personalized photo cards, especially for the holidays.  Usually, though, you have to purchase those cards in packs of 10, 25, 50, or more.  So what do you do if you want personalized photo cards that are specific to each recipient?

Thanks to I See Me for providing us with a great personalized book to enjoy.

I’ve seen, read, received and given a lot of personalized books in my day.  I’ve always enjoyed them because there’s just something special about getting a book with your own name and/or photo in it, immersing you in the story.  I had wanted to order one for Bubbles for her birthday this year because she’s very much into books and loves to recognize her own name and picture.  Most personalized books, however, are geared for older children through adults, with easily-torn paper pages and more grown-up themes.

I See Me Personalized Books for Toddlers & Kids

So I was very pleased to come across the I See Me collection of personalized books and other gifts.  They have books for pretty much every occasion: birthdays, Easter, Christmas, being a big sister, being a big brother.  And then they have lots of personalized books that are “just because” like My Own Fairy Tale, My Own Pirate Tale, and other similar titles.

Weddings are all about memories. And as fathers prepare to walk their daughters down the aisle (or as brothers prepare to walk sisters, grandfathers prepare to walk granddaughters, etc.) you can be sure they are thinking back through the years and reliving some of the memories that they have created together. Wearing your heart on your sleeve may be just a saying but now it’s possible to literally wear your memories on your sleeve, too.

I recently received an Easy Change Photo Cufflinks Kit in the mail from Photo Jewelry Making. These would make a great Father’s Day gift for next year but I think they would also be the perfect gift from the bride to the person walking her down the aisle. From the men I spoke to over the weekend, they all agreed that having a special photo of the two of them slipped into these cufflinks for them to wear on the big day would be a perfect little touch.

Photo Software to Make Personalized Photo Cufflinks

This kit honestly could not be easier to use.  To start, load the included software CD so that you can edit your photo and then shrink it down to size.  To do so: Continue reading »
