One of my kids’ dance teachers is getting married this summer. When some people get married, I just get something that you would normally give newlyweds, not being particular about personalization. But then there are those that you really care about. The ones you don’t want to just give another plate or salt and pepper shakers.
She was one of those people. I wanted her to have something where she would gasp, and be all excited about it. So when I got the opportunity to review a personalized product from Initials, Inc, I knew I would get something for her. I don’t remember the first item that had my new name/initials on it, but I do remember it feeling strange and wonderful at the same time.
So I ordered her one of these Travel Totes from Initials, Inc. She and her fiance loved seeing the new monogram, and I loved getting to chose colors of ribbon and thread That I thought would fit her personality. Here’s what I chose:
And, to make it more special, I packed it with fun picnic wear from the local discount store!
This particular bag would also be a great idea for a new baby! It’s big enough to fit everything that a baby needs on trips, but small enough to fit in the car, or as a carry-on for a flight. Have you ever been stranded without baby gear while your luggage is lost in airline la-la land? Well, I have- in Puerto Rico- and I’ll never go without a carry-on ever again!
The Travel Tote is great quality, sturdy, with a zipper enclosure and front pocket. It arrived quickly, packed well. The bag was very roomy, and actually bigger than I expected. It would fit all the picnic gear, plus a blanket. Personalization is always FREE! The best part is that Initials, Inc was created by two moms!
Initials, Inc. was founded by Sisters – Britney Vickery and Ivy Hall shortly after becoming SAHM’s. During that time they loved being home with their children but found that they were seeking three things; to be challenged creatively, to have flexibility in schedule and to contribute financially to their homes…but they didn’t want to give up time with their young families to get it. Initials, Inc. was created to meet those needs as women and new mothers. Over time, they quickly realized that the solution that they created for themselves could be a blessing to other women. Initials, Inc. officially launched in February 2005. Today, Initials, Inc. is national in scope and is supporting women and families all across the country through home parties selling personalized gifts!
