Turn a Picture into a Beautiful Keepsake or Special Gift { Product Review and Giveaway }


Everywhere you turn in our home you can see something that has a picture of our little ones on it. Whether it be a picture hanging on a wall or a blanket thrown over the back of our couch. I am always looking for ways to display wonderful pictures I have taken of them.

I was able to visit the MailPix site and choose a couple items and let me just say it was not an easy tasks. Why you may ask?? Well, because they have so many wonderful products to choose from. I literally had to make a list and narrow it down. Once I narrowed it down then I had he hard decision of choosing the picture(s) I wanted to use. I had just recently taken pics of my children so I browsed through that folder and choose my favorite and then began the ordering process.

Once you get the hard part out of the way (making the decisions on what items and which pictures to use), then the rest is a walk in the park. I began by choosing one product at a time that I wanted to order. It will then allow you to upload picture(s) that you would like to use on that item. It allows you to make changes etc, to it and once you have it as you like, then you just click to order. You will do this for each item you would like to order and can review the order before submitting it.


Above is a collage of all of the items that we received. I will give you a description of each provided by the MailPix site and my personal review too.

My Review: These porcelain ornaments are absolutely beautiful. I had them each personalized with special pictures of my older 2 children. They came out great and my children loved them. They will be a very special keepsake for them to hang on our Christmas tree each year. I will be purchasing some as gifts this year. I feel they make wonderful keepsakes for family and friends.

•252 Piece, 10x14" Puzzle

My Review: I love putting puzzles together and my oldest daughter as followed in my footsteps. We can just sit and put one puzzle together after another. I surprised her with a custom photo of her and her siblings that was made into a puzzle. She absolutely loved it and I did too. She couldn't believe how they turned the picture into a puzzle and she got a giggle when we completed it. I love that it comes in a beautiful tin that they also place the photo on the lid too. You can easily store all of the pieces inside to ensure you will not loose them.

•Magnets available as a 4x6", or 2x3" Wallet

My Review: We received it in a size 4x6" and I have to say it is quite large. We have it displayed on our refrigerator. I used a picture of my three little ones in their Halloween costumes from this past year. Now I can look at it everyday in my kitchen. The magnet came out great and has a nice shine to the front of it. It stands out so much on the side of my fridge and my kids love to take it down and look at it all of the time!!!


* Personalized Coasters *

•Drink Coasters are 3.88 x 3.88"

•Set of 6 Coasters, Available with a single image or 6 images

My Review: My husband loves to drink glasses of wine. He carries them from room to room leaving them on tables etc. We didn't have any coasters so he would always take a paper towel and fold it and place it under his glass. I personally hate them!!! He would leave them behind and they looked so nasty. I surprised him with a beautiful set of coasters with our childrens picture on them. They take the picture that you choose and place it on each of the coasters. I was actually shocked on how good they came out and look all together. They are awesome. They have a cork back which ensures they won't slip and slide on the surface of a table etc.

Now I don't mind when he leaves the coasters laying around...LOL  They make a wonderful addition to any table in our home!!


* Personalized Fleece Blanket *
Snuggle up to a warm memory with a personalized fleece blanket. Add your favorite photo to a fleece blanket and keep warm year round, or decorate your home. Custom blankets can be hung on a wall or displayed over your couch, and make great personalized baby blankets. Create a gift the whole family can enjoy and keep warm with a photo blanket.


•Full Size Photo applied to Blanket

•Personalized Blanket is 100% Polyester Material and measures approx. 40 x 60"

•Great as a Wall Hanging, Couch or Bed Throw, or Baby Blanket!

My Review: I was personally most excited to see this product. I am always getting chilly in our home while the rest of my family is hot. I like to snuggle up with a nice warm, cuddly blanket. I love this fleece throw so much. First off, because I was able to personalize it with a picture of my adorable children. It can't get any better than that. Secondly, it is so soft, and cuddly. It is not to thick but most defiantely will keep you warm. A great plus beings I live in Florida. I can't handle a blanket that is to thick or heavy, living down here. When I am not using it I place it over the back of our loveseat in our livingroom. This way I can continue to enjoy it by being able to look at it. My parents came to visit and commented on it right away. This product would definately make a wonderful gift for Christmas, Birthday, Baby Shower etc. I absolutely love mine!



* 4x6 Prints *

My Review: Lastly, I decided to try out their prints. I had a bunch of pictures that I had taken from a previous trip we had taken. I wanted to get copies made of each one. This too was super easy. You just upload the pictures you would like and what size prints you would like with the amount of each.

I had all of mine done in size 4x6" and they came out beautiful. They are glossy and the pictures just pop right off of the paper. I will definately be using their services again and their prices are great as well.


As you can see I reviewed a variety of products from this wonderful business. This way I could give you feedback on a variety of items to give you a true feeling of this site and their products. I love each and every product that we received. The service was top-notch and I will definately be back for more. I invite you to head on over and check them out. Whether it is for yourself or looking for a special gift. You will definately find it.
