A Gift for Every SeasonPayton Foeller
I know Christmas is passed and the big gifting season is over. But I wanted to share with you one of my favorite gifts we got the chance to give this Christmas and the awesome company that helped us create them! They can truly be given for any gifting occasion and customized to anyone’s personal taste! I did receive a small credit to go toward the product in exchange for an honest review but even if I hadn’t they’re too cute not to share!
The gifts are from a site called, Swell Forever.
Their founder tells about how they came up with the idea for their product,
“…There are few gift options on the market that come from the heart … at least for the modern woman like me who can’t sew or knit! So for all the grandmothers, mothers, sisters, friends, daddies, grandfathers, co-workers, aunts, and cousins of the world who do not know one end of a sewing needle from the other, I developed the idea for Swell Forever®. Use your words, straight from your heart, whatever you want to say and leave loving words that linger for someone you cherish. Those precious words will be made a part of every gift we design.”
I go back and forth on being a good gifter… some years I feel like I nailed it. I gave the gift that’s usable, meaningful, and personal. And then other years… you’re getting a gift card because I just can’t holiday that year…
This year was a big year for us and many others in our lives. I wanted to really ace it and with Swell Forever I think I found just the right balance of useful and meaningful. And the un-boxing (which is apparently something we bloggers share now) was equally adorable.
Okay, so now you know why these cozy blankets came to be but let’s talk about what makes them so special.
Each blanket comes with a ‘personalized by you’ tag. You can choose the font and changeup bold and italic lettering to emphasize what you really want to say. You can see more examples of how people more creative than myself have personalized their blankets here. You can even send them a handwritten note that they will place on the tag instead of a chosen font! Those are soo adorable.
They’re (at least the one I picked, the Lindsey Forever throw) are machine washable. Because really, no one wants to ‘spot clean’ anything. We just end up buying a new one if that’s required…
Who doesn’t love a cozy blanket???
You’re supporting an American made – mama created and founded product. We will almost always dish out a little more cash to support worker in our home country and smart, hard-working mom-prenuers.
As well as the personalized tag you can have them custom embroider your blankets.
One of the gifts we created with Swell Forever we included the verse from the song, ‘It is Well’ on the tag. So then for the embroidery, we chose to finish out the verse, writing ‘It is Well,’ in a pretty swirly soft glassy blue font.
I was really pleased with how they turned out! And, I should mention they double checked with me before starting our blankets which fonts we wanted and triple checked the spelling with us. Then promptly sent it out in plenty of time for Christmas!
You can find all their collections here. They also have really sweet baby blankets and tons of other cozy full size throws.
And I almost forgot to mention, they give back! Check out all the ways your purchase helps them help others!
Since this is an ‘honest’ review I do feel the need to mention the price because if you know me you know those price tags are something I’d typically walk away from. However, I watched for discounts and clearance throws. The gorgeous oatmeal color I chose was on sale and the tags are included in the price. If you’re wanting to find something special any of their products will definitely hit the mark. You can always shop smart and wait for some sales if you’re on a budget!
