Archive for Product Review

I was asked to review some wedding related products again. This time it’s gifts for your guests! After attending countless weddings as a photographer and a videographer I’ve become a strong believer that if you are going to do wedding favors than do something that the guests are not going to leave behind! I’m pleased to say that all of the seven items that were sent to me to review are something that I would actually like as a wedding favor and will be an item that will get continued use in my household long after this review.  Forever wedding favors had a quick delivery time, the products were affordable, but also really nice. Here is the website if you’d like to check out what else they have to offer: https://foreverweddingfavors.com/

And here are the photos I took of the products and my thoughts on each one of them.

1.) Typewriter Key Magnets – The first item I checked out were these adorable “Typewriter Key Magnets” I loved the packaging that they came in and of course that they spelled out the word “LOVE”. These will definitely have a  spot on my refrigerator.  I can totally see a couple that has a “Vintage or Boho Wedding Theme” ordering these for their guests. Adorable!

2.) Tie the Knot Wine Stopper – Next up was the Tie the Knot wine stopper…. Great item for the wine enthusiast. I liked the packaging that it came in and what doesn’t go together better than love and wine? Again, I love wine so this is something that I would use in my home on a regular basis because it’s always difficult to get the cork back in the bottle and they are making so many wines now without corks. A cute, but practical gift!

3.) Hugging Bear Shakers – These adorable bears were my favorite item that was sent to me.  They were super cute, but also super small so I’m not sure if they are more of a collector’s item than an actual usable household item.  Because they are so cute I’m willing to try them out, especially since I think we have the old cardboard salt and pepper shakers in my house!

4.) Wine Bottle Corkscrew – Keeping with a wine theme this corkscrew is also great for wine lovers and who doesn’t need an extra wine corkscrew in their homes?! If you were having a “Wine Themed” event these would be the perfect gift for all of your guests.

5.) Mini Bubble Gum Machine – Now this one was my youngest son’s favorite item… I wonder why?! It’s a little on the kitschy side for a formal event, but would make a great favor for a kid’s table, or a more laid back, fun themed wedding or even as a favor for guests at a birthday party! I tasted the gum and it wasn’t the best gum I’ve ever had, but the item worked and was again very adorable. My 3 year old gave it two thumbs up! I’ll probably have to refill it soon!

6.) Brass Compass – A very nice inexpensive compass that my oldest son really enjoyed. He ran around the house and played with it all day pretending to be an explorer. It would be a nice thing to have hiking as well. Perfect gift for a “Travel or Adventure Themed Wedding” I’ve seen a lot of weddings in Colorado where this wedding favor would’ve been a perfect fit. Colorado seems to attract the adventurous and thus couple’s who enjoy the great outdoors. Hopefully, I will see some of these at a wedding soon!

7.) Four Heart Wedding Frames – The last item I’m reviewing is a package of four heart wedding frames. These are small and fit a wallet sized 2″x3″ photo.  I decided to stick some of my own wedding photos in them to see how they would look… I think these would be great with engagement photos of the couple put in them for each guest to take home. Another idea would be to use them for your table numbers or they are small enough that you could also use them for names as place settings and then each person would still have a frame to take home and put their own photograph in.

This company that I reviewed these items for is affiliated with two other companies that I’ve done reviews for on my blog. I’ve also really liked the products that I’ve received from all three of them. They haven’t paid me to review them, but I did get to keep the products. I like being able to give a couple looking for other ideas for their wedding something besides just my photography and video to look at, so I hope you enjoy these reviews!

The same company that runs Groovy Guy Gifts contacted me to do another review of a product from their sister site, Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique. I was so impressed with the gift that I received for my husband that I decided I would love a wallet of my own and agreed to write another review for them.  I’m equally impressed with the quality of the item as I was with the first wallet I received. It came with a beautiful monogram of my initials on the front and was presented in a sheer gift bag.

The inside of the wallet has more than enough room for all of my credit cards, money and more. I like that it also zips and buttons up preventing me from losing any of the items that I would place in it, which was definitely a problem that I had with my old wallet that didn’t always close correctly. There’s also a handy wrist strap which is nice for carrying the clutch when you don’t feel like lugging your entire purse along.

Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique also carries a bunch of other wonderful personalized gifts that are perfect for all of the gals in your bridal party! Including some of those fabulous robes that all of you ladies are looking for lately! Check out their site! https://www.bridesmaidgiftsboutique.com I know you won’t be disappointed by the quality, the price and even the fast delivery service that this company has to offer! Happy shopping!

For the first time ever I was contacted by a company that wanted me to review one of the products that they offer through their website https://www.groovyguygifts.com/on my blog, so I said sure, why not, and they gave me a list of items that I could choose from.  I decided on a personalized wallet for my husband since he already has a lot of the typical alcohol related items that are on their site. The gift arrived a short time after that addressed to me and in fact it came in quicker than I got around to making this blog post! So very quick delivery times!

The first thing I noticed right away is the craftsmanship of the wallet that I received. It came in a very nice wooden box engraved with my husband’s first name which will be a nice place for him to put his wallet at the end of the day since he’s always misplacing his wallet. The wallet itself is made of a very nice high quality soft black leather with plenty of room for all his cards and other items that he carries on his person. They also imprinted his first and last name on the front of the wallet which will be great if he ever looses it again and it’s also a nice touch!

Checking out the rest of their site they also have a lot of really great items for groomsmen gifts that are not only affordable, but the ability to personalize each item is also an added bonus! There are also some really great items for wedding favors such as wine keys and beer bottle openers and things that would also work well for holiday and birthday gifts for your man too! So if you are looking for personalized gifts for all the guys in your wedding party or even if it’s just something special for the man in your life I really do recommend them! I received a great item that my husband is looking forward to using! Check them out https://www.groovyguygifts.com/
