Merle & Velma ~ Doing the personalized thing in an AWESOME way! {Review & Giveaway ~ US}

Most people I know – myself included – love happening upon a baby gift that is just a bit out of the ordinary … something unlike anything anyone else would find.  I am a huge fan of personalized items for myself and others and I feel like the jackpot was hit when I was introduced to Merle & Velma.  They create personalized keepsake blankets, pillows and t-shirts that are made with 100% organic fabric, printed with non-toxic water based dyes and made in the USA!

I was sent a personalized snap tee for review for my new baby girl in the Carly style (retails for $29.00).  With 14 different styles to pick from, you will surely find more than one that you fall in love with!  I requested a size 3 months but my little peanut is so teeny still that she can’t quite fit into it yet … I can’t wait to put her in this!  In the meantime, I have it hung on the outside of her closet on a decorative hanger, acting as part of the decor of her room!

While I am just in love with this tee, I cannot get enough of the Personalized Birth Story blankets from Merle & Velma!  I absolutely want to get my hands on one of these and cannot wait for another friend to have a baby so that I can gift them one.  What an amazing keepsake that you could keep – and use – forever!

Can you imagine how you would feel if you opened a package containing one of these tees or blankets?  How about if you were the gift-giver of one of these keepsakes?  The Merle & Velma catch phrase couldn’t be more appropriate: “Putting a modern twist on the classic keepsake“.  The personalized birth story blanket or personalized snap tee is an item that should be found in every nursery, as parents and children alike will cherish them for years!

Make sure that you follow along and keep up with Merle & Velma on Facebook and Twitter!

Buy It!  You can purchase personalized snap tees, birth story blankets, pillows and loveys at Merle & Velma, ranging in price from $29 to $129.99!
