On the Hunt for a Personalize Gift for the Beauty-Obsessed?
As an avid beauty-lover myself, it's easy to see why we can sometimes pose a challenge for gift-givers- especially if the gift is beauty related! We've often run the gamut of beauty products, tools, & more...making it difficult to find something that we don't already have or want. But, you don't necessarily have to spend tons of cash to get a gift that's unique ;)
IN fact, you can even snag a personalized gift that's beauty-themed! One of my favorite types of places that you can find such items, are online shops; these offer up a variety of individualized products that can be styled in a personal way, intended just for the recipient. ThestationeryStudio.com is one of my top picks when it comes to affordability, quality, & distinctiveness!
The Stationery Studio:
A Bit About Them...
The Stationery Studio was founded through the love and passion of Renee Redman in 1994. This busy mother of 2 began her in-home business to help fulfill her dream, resulting in a brand site & world-wide exposure. They provide everything from personalized gift and business products- including everything from stationary to party supplies!
Currently, they offer over 22,000 personalized items, with a continuous flow of repeat & happy customers :) They've even been featured at trend-setting places like In Style, Real Simple, and other notable press outlets. Recently, I tried out their personalized services for myself and I wanted to share my fantastic experience, product picks, and ideas below:
The Beauty Closet Recommends:
PERSONALIZED PINK TRIMMED COSMETIC BAG $24
PRETTY PERSONALIZED HEADBAND $24
DESIGN YOUR OWN AQUA MINERAL LUXURY SOAP SET $24
The Stationery Studio makes snagging super affordable, trendy, & personalized gifts that any beauty-lover can appreciate. I didn't have to poke around on their site very long before I saw several things that I just couldn't live without ;) Out of all 3 items pictured above, my fav is the personalized cosmetic bag. It's made of quality canvas and includes several options to give it a personal touch like: 8 different thread colors to choose from & Initials/Single Initial/Monogram/Name personalization type.
If pink isn't a shade you want to go with, there are other color choices for the trim & side-tab: navy, turquoise, grey, & bright green. With a well-made zipper and finger loop for easy opening/closing, this super cute cosmetic bag is perfect for anyone that's beauty-obsessed! It also happens to be quite roomy and I found it very easy to fit my entire makeup routine in my bag- with quite a bit of space to spare!
As for the personalized headband, this came in a close 2nd of the 3 items. It's very soft and flexible and is perfect for putting your hair back during my nightly skincare routine, workouts, & when I want to keep my hair off of my face & neck due to the hot Texas heat! There are also several colors to choose from for fabric options, in addition to thread shades and initials/monogram/etc. When it comes to headbands in general, I'm beyond picky- they have to be just the right softness and they also need to have decent flexibility.
Unfortunately many fabric headbands I end up trying, will often leave tale-tale signs of their presence once they are removed...or they end up hurting my head and feeling unpleasant. I didn't have any of those issues with this headband from The Stationery Studio and instead, I hardly noticed that it was even on my head :) As for the picture above, it doesn't quite do it justice- the color is a dark brown with bright baby blue thread [in a monogram style]. .
Now we come to the design your own personalized soaps. Let me start off by saying that I'm not always a big fan of bar soaps in general and I often find them to be a bit overpowering or the scent isn't very pleasant. What I loved about these aqua mineral soaps, was that they were the very opposite. They didn't look or feel cheap and their scent was light & fresh. Because each set is handcrafted here in the U.S.. [Vermont], extra care and attention is taken- this is what gives The Stationery Studios's personalized soaps a true uniqueness. This leaves my skin feeling clean, soft, & hydrated- not dry!
The aqua mineral version features a water-based fragrance that won't irritate sensitive skin or noses, which makes it a gentle, yet effective cleanser. You can also order these with a monogram or single initial option and each soap comes nicely wrapped in a gift box. If you're looking for a different shape, soap color, or scent- those are options as well. These options are around the same price-point unless you choose to go with more soaps [such as one of the 6 soap sets or the Monogrammed Luxury Hostess Set]. Each bar is a generous 5 oz. size, triple-milled, & composed of a 100% vegetable-based formula- that makes these a great buy & a fab gift for any beauty-lover!
