Dakota Gifts Product Review and $50 Giveaway - Toronto Teacher Mom

Dakota Gifts Product Review and $50 Giveaway

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

 

Lately, I get really excited when I find companies are going "green." It is very important that they make it easier for us to shop for products that are eco-friendly and as natural possible. That is why I am happy to share with you an online store called Dakota's Personalized Gifts.


Go Green Personalized Canvas Reusable Tote Bag - $16.95

One of the first things I discovered about DakotaGifts.com is that they package their products using recycled paper, biodegradable peanuts and cardboard boxes. I also discovered that they have a line of eco-friendly products that are listed under their "Green Living" category. Among these products are organic printed tees, reusable canvas tote bags, bamboo sets and jewelry made from coconut. And better still, Dakota Gifts can also personalize them as well!

When you first enter their site, you can narrow your search by selecting one of the following categories, just to name a few:
For this review, I decided to order a personalized set of 180 thread count pillow cases for my dear friend Kelly who will be getting married this October. With a bridal shower soon approaching, I knew that they would make a great gift, especially because she is ALWAYS right! It arrived in excellent condition and based on the quality of the material, I am sure they will do well in the wash. And how do I know that? 'Cause I'm always right, too!

Dakota Gifts Mr. Right PillowcaseDakota Gifts Mrs. Always Right


There are so many great gifts for couples that would complement the personalized pillowcases such as their matching personalized connected coffee mugs or this adorable "Cookin' Up Love" apron, both of which are available from sister site, TheAnniversaryRose.com:


Retails for $21.95, currently priced at $16.95

So if you're looking for some unique ideas for that special couple-to-be or a personalized gift for friends or family who are celebrating a milestone anniversary, check out The Anniversary Rose and enjoy flat rate shipping for as little as $5.95 if you use a business shipping address.
