One of the greatest privileges of parenting is getting to choose your child's name. I've never liked my own name, but I love my children's names. The pondering over name choices, the imagining who your child will be, it's magical, whether your children come to you by birth or by adoption. Each of my children has a story that goes with the names that we chose for them, both first names and middle names.
CrossTimber is a business all about names! The Homeschool Review Crew was offered the opportunity to review a wide variety of their products. CrossTimber offers everything from a personalized framed plaque with name meaning and Bible verse, to music boxes, bookmarks, coffee mugs, and even multi-name plaques. Their products are totally customized to what you want. Deciding what to order was the hardest part for me! I couldn't very well get a name plaque for one of my children and not all the others, could I?
I was browsing the occupations when I found a firefighter mug. I decided I would get that for my husband, Paul, who is a fire captain. The ordering process was simple, and the staff personable. They even offered to research my odd name for me.
The mug arrived quickly by priority mail, and was very well packed.
It's beautiful! I'm very happy with it. I was originally planning for it to be a Christmas gift, but since Paul sees the blog from time to time, I'll have to give it to him now.
They included a small name card with it, with the same motif as the mug.
There's even a discrete logo on the back of the mug, which is nice if I want to order more of them. The website is right there, without me having to think, "Now what was that business called again?"
The mug is microwavable, and dishwasher safe, both very important in our house.
CrossTimber products would make lovely baby shower or first birthday gifts. As we head into the holiday season, they're also a great gift idea for the hard to shop for people on your list. After all, everybody has a name, right?
CrossTimber also has gifts featuring the names of God. You can select from a variety of the Biblical names of God, on various backgrounds to create beautiful artwork for your home, or as a gift for your pastor or mentor.
CrossTimber is generously offering discounts for volume purchases. They're also sponsoring a great giveaway! The grand prize winner may select either a mug, a name plaque or an 8x10 plaque. Nine additional winners each get a $10 gift certificate toward the item of their choice. Click the box below to enter.
