Initials, Inc: Personalized Products Review, Online Party & $50 Gift Card Giveaway-Ends 9/24

Have you ever had trouble finding items personalized with your name or a name of someone you're trying to buy a gift for?  Or what about gifts personalized with names but are items that you would never want to spend money on because they are so cheesy looking?  Let me introduce you to Initials, Inc, a company that  specializes in personalized products and gifts.  What's even better than their affordable prices is personalization is always FREE!

When I was first sent the link by Tiffany Ahmann, who is a Kangaroo Mama blog fan, teacher of the deaf, independent consultant for Initials and now friend, I was in love!  First of all, I love personalized gifts because it really shows someone you thought about them when you selected the gift and they know it wasn't a re-gift!  What I also love is that I can have Kiggster's name on items when I know I'll never find it pre-personalized in a store!  It's kind of hard to find Rayne in any pre-made items.  Plus, we really don't need another California license plate or cheesy keychain to add to our junk.  We did, however, really need/want a bag for when we travel to hold all of Kiggster's cloth diapers and clothes because she needed 2 duffel bags for herself and that left Honey and I with only 1 bag to share!  So we decided to choose a super cute travel bag with her name personalized on it and also a cute tote with my name personalized on it…that one was totally a want but has now become my go-to bag!

So here is what I ordered for Kiggster, however, the print and bag is now no longer available for order.  They have many bags similar and came out with some amazing new prints in their new catalog! 

Item Code: 2AB-76E

The Traveler Bag in Mum's The Word Print (~$65 value)

Bag Dimensions: 22"W x 14"H x 10"D

Name Personalization: Rayne

Thread Color: Turquoise

Font Type: Dots

Both Honey and I love this bag, it was seriously the perfect size for us!  I also liked that it not only had a double handle but a removable cross body strap.  There are also 2 pockets on the outside of each end.  I did wish that both pockets had either a zipper or a magnetic closure to ensure that contents don't fall out.  The inside does not have any pockets but the lining is very nice, it's a light seafoam green color, which makes finding contents in the bag really easy!  There are metal "legs" on the bottom of the bag, helping to prevent it from getting too dirty if you have to set it on the floor.  

The tote I got for myself is still available, but under a different name, Soho Shopper, and the print I chose is also no longer available for purchase but they have many other new prints that were introduced. Below are the details of my bag:

Item Code: 2AE-83E

The Shopper Tote in the Moda Print ($40 value)

Name Personalization: Kathy

Thread Color: Red

Font Type: Girly

Dimensions of Tote: 7.5"W x 10.5"H x 8"D

I love, love, love my tote!!!!  I had no idea how much I'd love it until I got it in person.  I really wanted to have my name on something and a purse seemed to be a great idea.  However, if you ask Honey…or any of my girlfriends, I have tons of purses-seriously, I have at least 30!  But it feels like one can never have enough!  But when I received the tote, I was thinking, I would just try out the tote but putting a couple items into it during a weekend outing to "test-drive" my purse.  Well, 2 months later, I haven't put down this purse to switch it out with another one!  It's not too big but has a base that expands so it can fit a lot.  Has a magnetic closure which is great because I hate when things start falling out but I jam pack my bags so zipper closures don't always work.  The handle is really comfy and at the perfect length for slinging on my shoulders.  I am in love with the print and how the red embroidery pops against the blue and white!  There's 2 open pockets inside of the bag that I keep my cell phone, business cards and other things and a zipper pocket in the back of the bag that I keep loose change, thumb drive, etc.  The print of the inside lining is really pretty, not your typically lining.  I've been using this tote to carry around all my blog stuff like laptop, camera, video camera, notes, etc.  Now I wish I would have had it say Kangaroo Mama on it instead of Kathy but I guess I'll have to get another one! 

Well, if you're thinking, I don't need purses, use purses, have a thing against purses, what else can I get from Initials?!  Oh boy, you better sit down because they have a ton to offer!  How about organizing your home with some stylish but functional pieces?!  Tons of prints, millions of font and thread color choices, and styles and sizes to choose from.  Who knew you could have a magnetic pocket that could be personalized to say Coupons or an e-reader case that says My Pad, or an organization bin that says My Junk.  They even added a baby line with super cute bibs, towels, blankets, diaper bags, diaper purses, and much more!  They are so cute and great for baby showers…or for yourself!  The baby line is actually 25% off for the month of September! 


With Christmas just coming around the corner, only 109 days or 15 weeks, this is the best time to get in some Christmas shopping so that you're not flustered during Black Friday when everything good will be picked through, taken, and leftover!  Get something fun, personalized, thoughtful, and sweet for someone this holiday season, baby shower, birthday, or pamper yourself!  I will be hosting an online party starting now and ending on September 24th where you can put in your order online here and make sure to choose Kangaroo Mama's Online Party as your event.  Take advantage of the baby product line sale and their September customer shopportunity special where you can get a scarf at 1/2 price for every $35 you spend during the party!  Plus Tiffany is throwing in a ton more specials for those that place an order.
