Getting Personal {ENDED}

I absolutely love giving personalized gifts. In my opinion it just makes the gift that much more special.

My dad’s birthday was last month.
He’s such a hard guy to shop for and it doesn’t help that he is constantly telling us not to get him anything. To give you a better idea of the type of guy he is; when we take HIM out to dinner he refuses to let us pay!

Anyway, I always try to cheat the system by getting him something from the “kids”. He can’t refuse that way. šŸ™‚

So, this year I thought what better gift than pictures of the kids. I took the kids to the park and started snapping pics of them. I must have been in an incredibly stupid ambitious mood because I decided a picture of the two of them TOGETHER would be perfect.

Twenty minutes and 75 pictures later I finally got a shot of them where they weren’t fighting looked adorable.

dakota giftsNow all I needed was a great frame to house it. I logged on to Dakota Gifts and started browsing through the multitude of personalized gifts that they have. They have gifts for birthdays, weddings, and graduation. They even have a special Eco-Friendly section for your Green friends!

Ok, so here is the frame that I picked out along with the photo of my kidlets.

Ian and Ainsley

I absolutely LOVE it!

dakota close upI don’t think I can accurately describe how great the frame is. From what I can tell it is two tones of wood and they use a machine to cut the top wood exposing the one underneath. So the dimension is really cool.

My dad was quite surprised and the photo and frame are proudly displayed in the living room. šŸ™‚

Dakota Gifts has been kind enough to offer a $50 gift certificate plus free shipping!

    My favorite item is one of their Christmas totes, Just Chillin, it has penguins on it. I actually like most of their Christmas totes because you could put a present in it and then it too is actually a present.
