Holiday Gift Guide: Frecklebox Review and Giveaway

When I was a child, I loved having my things personalized! Personalization was crucial in growing up in a home with four other sisters!  I recall when purchasing school supplies, we would often get things mixed up and one thing led to the next in neither of us getting the notebook or folder we wanted for example. You know how it goes, if you argue over an item long enough, mom or dad steps in decides who gets what. As a parent now myself, I realize the importance of personalization in not wanting my own kids having to go through the same hassle of deciding over who gets what.

100_2607While browsing around online, I came across a fantastic company that specializes in personalized gifts for kids called Frecklebox, a company on a mission to educate and entertain! Some of the products that they offer are personalized books, posters, growth charts, journals, coloring books, stickers, place mats, puzzles, and many other great personalized items.

About the Founders of Frecklebox… (from their site)

One guy’s name is Scott. The other one is Mark. Both guys dove into the baby making business over a decade ago. Even before that, in partnership, they created a printing and distribution business called Progressive Solutions. Both their kids and their company inspired Frecklebox. You see, as parents, these guys take the job of expanding their children’s minds very seriously. And as business people, they’ve been on a relentless mission to explore the possibilities of web-based digital printing. Presto. Frecklebox was born. Hopefully, a great big Frecklehead family will follow.

Mark from Frecklebox generously sent my daughter Melody and I a couple of fun personalized gifts to review. In order to see how easy the process of personalizing and ordering an item is, Mark let me choose an item to personalize for Melody. It was really hard to decide want I wanted to review with all the neat gifts available but after awhile, I went with a personalized placemats. I choose the Cute Kitty Placemat and decided to add my daughters first name and her two middle names.

I’ve come across other personalized items in retail stores that don’t usually have my daughter’s name Melody available such as stickers, cups, and key chains for example. So I really have to appreciate Frecklebox beyond leaps and bounds as you can add any name you would so choose to your item.  After deciding on the name I wanted on my product, I simply clicked preview and the image was refreshed to show me what the finished product would look like. The whole process couldn’t have been easier!

I was so excited to receive my product, and could not believe how fast my order was shipped and at my door step! Literally, I believe the whole process took only a matter of 3-5 days to get to me. Talk about great service!

The quality is superb and I know without a shadow of a doubt that this product will last for a good long time! Mark also surprised me with my very own Zebra personalized notebook! That’s right, even though I am grown and Frecklebox is generally specialized in gifts for kids, they know deep down us mom’s love and appreciate our own personalized items too!

I can’t stress enough how wonderful this company is to work with and what great products they have to offer at reasonable prices. The designs are fantastic and great for both boys and girls. The items at Frecklebox would bring a smile to any child’s face and would make  great gifts with the upcoming Holiday season upon us.
