Custom Occasions Review

I love to personalize gifts and greeting cards because I feel it makes giving a more special touch. I was really impressed with the offerings available at Custom Occasions which is a Zazzle webstore and it has an amazing selection of greeting cards, invitations and unique gifts that can be customized for virtually every special occasion.

From Party Invitations, Birth Announcements, Birthday and Thank You Cards to Business Cards and even fun gifts like custom mugs, Iphone or Ipad cases and more, there is sure to be something that will appeal to everyone. I even discovered that Custom Boutique offers postage stamps that can be customized for use on wedding invitations, bachelorette parties or to simply add a personal, unique touch to your envelopes. How neat is that!

I really like the quality of the Birthday Invitations that I personalized for Hannah & Jacob’s upcoming birthday party. I normally don’t even send out invitations because it is hard to find one that works for a joint party. Custom Boutique has a wide selection of invitations to choose from and I really like the Blue Balloon Modern Kid’s Party Custom Invite. It was so easy to add in the pertinent information and I was even able to include information for the child only party that I am hosting the day before the main event with our family. The invitations are lovely and the paper is a nice quality, including envelopes. I appreciate that you can place an order with only 10 invitations for smaller parties like ours but if you need more then you can order in intervals and receive a money saving discount too for bulk orders!

Did you know that you can even personalize your own postage stamps? This is such a neat concept that would be perfect for special events and the holidays. There is a nice selection to choose from at Custom Boutique and I am getting so much positive feedback from friends and family when they notice our personalization on the postage stamp!

I am very pleased with the selection of customizable greeting cards. Not only can you personalize or change the text but you can even add a picture too! My family is going to love their special occasion cards that I made with love just for them. The card designs are pretty and modern and the quality is exceptional. I was very surprised at how affordable it is to customize your personal greeting card (I find it much less expensive than buying a plain card at the store) and you can receive discounts for buying multiple cards. I made a special card for my elderly mom’s birthday and I was able to enlarge the text so that she will be able to read it. Adding a picture of her with my daughter really makes this one special card with a lot of personal meaning that I hope she will cherish and know how much I love her.

For neat gift ideas, check out the collection of customizable gifts for every budget at Custom Boutique. I created a mug for myself from a design on the website and changed the text to read “Maureen Loves Coffee”. I smile every morning when I read my fun mug and enjoy a cup of coffee. It was so easy to do and took less than a minute to personalize my mug. I plan to create more personalized mugs for loved ones and include it in a basket with a bag of their favorite coffee and some biscotti and homemade fudge for affordable, personalized gifts at the holidays.

I am really pleased with my shopping experience at Custom Boutique and Zazzle. The customer service is top-notch, the quality of every product that I received is excellent, there is a wide selection of items offered and the prices are affordable. I will definitely be shopping again at Custom Boutique and Zazzle anytime that I need greeting cards, invitations or fun, unique gifts.
