I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t appreciate a gift personalized especially for them, can you?  It really shows you’ve put a lot of thought into the gift-buying!

Dakota’s Personalized Gifts is one place you can go to find that perfect present, and they even make shopping easier by categorizing gifts for him, for her, for the home, for grandma or grandpa, for the kids, and much more.  I personally enjoyed browsing through their engraved jewelry section, though.  So many pretty things!

Another place to check out, owned by the same company, is The Anniversary Rose.  You can get personalized gifts especially for couples, with a more romantic focus.  It’s geared toward anniversary gifting, but obviously would be a wonderful place to find a sweet, sentimental gift for your love!  Here’s a favorite of mine, a set of connected coffee mugs:

Our Personalized Apparel Review

I was given the opportunity to review the quality of the products made at Dakota’s Personalized Gifts, and decided to go with the Little Brother Star Infant Onesie with the name of my little man, Isaac, printed on the front under “I’m the Little Brother”.

Since Isaac is still within my tummy and has yet to come into the world (that would be a January event), I don’t have him available as a model quite yet.  But I can tell you that I am very happy with the quality of both the onesie itself, the design, and the printing of his name on the onesie.  The colors are vivid and bright and the onesie is well-made (Fisher-Price brand).  I’m loving this onesie and am contemplating having him come home from the hospital in it.  :)  It will definitely make an adorable keepsake photo with his big sister!

This onesie is available in sizes Newborn through 18 months and can be purchased and personalized for $19.95.

Final Thoughts

My experience with Dakota’s Personalized Gifts was very positive – I love their selection and have a couple different things in their store in mind for Christmas presents.  They also have a “The Dog Ate It” Guarantee that makes returning your product REALLY easy if for some reason you’re unhappy with it:

“If for any reason at all you are not happy with the Star Infant Onesie, just return it for a replacement or full store credit. No fine print, no hoops to jump through, no need to call for RAN or confirmation numbers. Just return the product and include your order number and or contact info so we can speed your choice of store credit or exchange through.”
