Giveaway: $100 Red Envelope Gift Card

I wrote recently about Red Envelope and their personalized gifts for kids. Little Miss absolutely adores her pillow. Lucky me, Red Envelope also sent me some canvas wall art that again was personalized for Little Miss.

Note: I blacked out Little Miss's name and birth date for privacy purposes. The text matches the pink of the canvas and fits nicely with the rest of the artwork.

I've been working on completing her room, as I mentioned in my last post about Red Envelope. It's hard for me to find items that work for her because she isn't your traditional girly girl, but we have her room painted lilac which reduces our options. This canvas art was perfect for her. It has her first and middle name and is also customized with her birth date.

I wish that we could customize the text further like I could with her pillow (we did her first and middle name instead of first and last as is suggested, but that was all we could do). She loved it anyway because it's all about her. The canvas comes in three sizes - 24x32", 18x24", and 12x16" so that it fits in the space that you have to fill. While the canvas shows Little Miss as a little light skinned blonde haired girl, there are other options - including boy options - for hair and skin color. Oddly, you can't choose any skin color with any hair color as I could with the pillow, which may limit you if you have a child with black hair and medium skin tone, but the vast majority of options are available.

I will say that when I first received my canvas - wrapped securely in bubble wrap and then in a couple of very sturdy layers of cardboard to prevent any damage - the canvas was wrong. There are multiple possible ways to spell Little Miss's name, and unfortunately it came out wrong. Red Envelope immediately made it right with no questions asked, and a corrected canvas arrived very quickly. Things happen sometimes, and I absolutely respect companies that take care of issues immediately and politely. Red Envelope definitely fit the bill here. After all, when you're doing this much personalized kids room decor, you're bound to have something go wrong now and then.

With all the options, what would you shop for? Red Envelope has tons of gifts for everyone in the family, and I have the fun of giving away a $100 gift card to Red Envelope to one lucky reader.
