It's Easy To #MakeHeartsHappy With A Gift From Personal Creations!

Almost as much as I love cats, I LOVE personalized gifts! I think it stems from having a first name with an unusual spelling. I love how my name is spelled (Caren with a "C"), but as a child, teenager and even as an adult, there were and ARE MANY times I feel left out!

As a child, I remember being jealous of my friends who had pencils and other items with their names displayed on them. Girls had barrettes that featured their names, there were all sorts of items, that with no internet when I was growing up, one of the only places to purchase personalized items was a local store. Needless to say, there never was, (and still aren't), items with "Caren" spelled with a "C".


So, when my new friend at Personalized Creations, (an FTD company),  emailed me about a campaign that they were having called #MakeHeartsHappy , after viewing their website, I jumped on board! The original "ask" was that I create a romantic dinner for my husband for Valentine's Day...well...I cook nearly EVERY DAY, and in our house, while we celebrate Valentine's Day, we don't make a big deal out of it. My husband's birthday happens to be in February and I decided to choose a personalized gift for him for his birthday instead.

I was offered the chance to choose any item that I wanted from the Personalized Creations Kitchen Gifts Page and while I lusted after mixing bowls, treat jars, mugs, platters, etc., etc., etc., for myself, I gathered myself together and continued my search for the appropriate gift for my husband.  When my eyes fell on the Coffee Time Kitchen Clock I knew that because I could PERSONALIZE it, it would make the perfect gift!!



Isn't that just the cutest!!?? Outside of our pets, our family, and sports, (probably not in that order for my husband, HA!!),  my husband and I ADORE COFFEE!!! We make a minimum of two pots per day, let me correct that, my husband is the primary "coffee-maker" in our home. He doesn't cook anything except oatmeal, but he makes a fabulous pot of coffee, which I am blessed to wake up to every morning!

 No single serve little cup thingies for us, we tried those and drink way too much coffee for those to be practical. We take our coffee much too seriously!!! I even have one of my pinterest boards that is dedicated to my love of coffee! The Coffee Time Kitchen Clock was the PERFECT way to thank my husband for the countless pots of coffee he has made, and to show him just how much it is appreciated!

When I presented his gift to him, he couldn't have been happier!



 The oversized numbers make it easy to see the time, since we are "old" we need that!! It uses 1 AA battery (not included).

Made of wood with keyhole.

You can personalize with any name up to 10 characters ("'s" is not automatic and must be entered if you want it to appear) and 2-line message up to 8 capitalized characters.

Measures 12"W x 9”H.

I was impressed with the total "look" and feel of the clock. It is solid, sturdy and non-obtrusive on our wall. I have had it up a couple of weeks now and my husband and I both love it!  (My ONLY complaint, is one of the clock "hands" was sticking out just a tiny bit when it arrived), but it is no big deal. The clock works beautifully and looks great in our kitchen.


I think it is just sooo cute that it says "Lenny's Coffee House" I LOVE IT!!

  5. What a wonderful review and I love that you got a gift for Lenny! It's beautiful! And I sure can relate to your difficulty finding personalized gifts... While Debbie is a common name, Debbi is not. My mom decided my name was Debbi. It's amazing what one happens when you change one letter!! Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey kitties

  6. Oh, I love personalized items! I have a pretty rare name, and, like you, I could never find my name on anything when I was a child. I love your husband's gift, and thank you for sharing this with us! Now, excuse me while I go ogle all the things Personalized Creations has to offer...

  8. Caren, I'm a Vicky with a 'y', not i or ie or Vikki...I rarely found pencils or note pads with my name spelled correctly either! I like the clock; does Lenny us a french press or Melita filter for his/your coffee?

  10. I agree, the only thing that beats personalized items are purrsonalized items!

  11. That is a really cute clock, Caren! I love coffee, too, but I only drink one cup a day due to how fast my heart beats on its own anyway. And by the way, I LOVE how you spell your name!

  19. I can relate a little. My name is Vicki but when I was growing up it was always Vicky. Somtimes, I just gave in and had things with my name spelled with the y. This is a great gift you got your husband. I'm off to check out their site.

    How funny. I just read a comment above that says she couldn't find things spelled like Vicky with a y, just i or ie. I NEVER saw stuff spelled with a i and people always wanted (and still do) spell my name with y. Interesting. :)

  20. That was a very thoughtful gift. I will check out their site.
