Great Personalized Gifts from Red Envelope

May 4, 2012

Red Envelope is another one of those great Personalized websites that I love to order from.


It’s a toss-up really between Red Envelope and Personal Creations of which store I like most.   Red Envelope has a slightly higher price point, but also has a slightly more upscale inventory. Either way – they both have great Unique Mother’s Day Gifts.

I had a tough time deciding what I would want to order from Red Envelope – because so many things were really striking my fancy.

I decided to go with the Personalized Fireside Skewers – because we’ve got a TON of firewood in the back yard – which means I’m going to gain 5lbs this summer on S’Mores alone!  (or not.)

I would like to preface this message with the fact that these skewers really are decent – and I’m sure lots of people will love them – but their ordering system has a glitch – I’ll be returning/exchanging my skewers.  Read more:

See how on this photo of the skewers, they have two words?
‘Hudson Family’


Well.  Trying to personalize my skewers – I wanted them to say, ‘Mallow Luv’ (as in Marshmallow love). Yes. I love Marshmallows.

*Interesting Fact* S’mores and Doughnuts are my LOVE language. Period.

Anyway – I wanted them to say ‘Mallow Luv’ but – It wouldn’t let me put a space in there.  I called customer service – and they said it was because the word ‘Family’ was automatically imprinted, so you can only do one word – no spaces.

Well, I didn’t want MallowLuv Family – So I’ll do ‘Marshmallow Family’.

Well, This is what I got.


Not exactly what I was expecting. I’m a little bummed, but I’m sure they’ll get it right when I talk to them about it.  I’m guessing that customer service was confused, and that the system just has a glitch not allowing a space to be put in. – We’ll get it right!


Oh Yeah, and I also ordered some Handmade Gray Sea Salted Caramels…

No one can really go wrong with Sea Salt Caramels.  ‘Nuff Said.

Anyway – I’ll try to update as far as my return/exchange goes with them, I’m sure they’ll be great – but we shall see Open-mouthed smile

Do you purchase gifts at a retail location due to the fact that it is easier to do returns or exchanges?

Oh yeah – And… Do you LOVE S’Mores like me??? Winking smile

  4. Commented on Best Quality Children’s Coat. How neat! I want to do that. Since comments have been a big part of entries I find a lot of new things I want to see and do, great inspiration! I think your review covered every thing it should have and you went into great detail. I don’t know if this was the plan but it was obvious which you liked the most and least before your results were given, probably because you gave reasons behind the things you did a didn’t like. Excellent review. My turn ha ha

  6. Commented on Resolving to be more Domesticated I agree 100% on finding the balance. Women have active lives not just keeping house and cooking dinner. There is your hubby and boys, extended family, blogging, shopping etc I feel things should be prioritized now my dream would have been family and I’ll get to the rest but life just doesn’t work that way. Figure out what suits you and your stress level best 🙂
