I stumbled across this little gem of a website in November last year while hunting for something different for Christmas gifts. Since then I have placed 5 orders and I think I'm addicted!
The prices are unbelievably cheap compared to most personalised gift shops (except ebay), but the quality of the stuff is exceptional for the price. The designs they print are like nothing I've seen before, they say they design them all themselves so its not the generic stuff which you see all over the web.
All of the gifts they sell are bright and cheerful, they are heavily aimed towards the kids I think (and the inner-child of grown-ups in my case!). At first glance it does seem that unless you're after something ultra bright and shiny you're in the wrong place - but this is where the next amazing thing about Giftarama comes into play....the customer service!
The first time I ordered I bought 3 personalised mugs for colleagues. I had them printed with custom messages and they went down a storm at work. The boss became very interested in these mugs and started hinting (very clumsily) that he would also love a personalised mug, but with a cool dragon on. I went back to the website and filled in their 'custom design form' not holding out much hope....The very next day I got an email with 3 designs on, they were all there usual bright and in your face style though which wasn't really what I was after - so I replied back and said I was hoping for something a little more Gothic \ dark, I wasn't really expecting a reply but much to my surprise later that day I got a very Gothic looking dragon design with a heavily grunge styled script text - it was exactly the sort of thing I was looking for!
Since then I have also had some photo gifts off them (they don't do much in the way of photos though) and a few packs of party invitations, everything I have received from them has been really top-notch stuff. They are really pleasant people to deal with and talented to boot. If you need anything custom made this is the place to go!
I only have one slightly negative thing to say about Giftarama - unfortunately they can be slow to dispatch items. I understand they are custom made and personalised etc, but particularly in November \ December I waited more than a week both times I ordered. The last order I placed however was received in 4 days which is much better. I wish they would add a priority dispatch option though!
Despite the time it takes to receive your order, it is always well worth the wait - unrivalled quality and even better customer service make this my all time fave in the world of personalised gifts... So far, lol.
This is a brilliant gift idea for grandma's around the globe, she loves it to bits and uses it all the time now. She won't let anybody else use it either! lol.
The service was fantastic from this company, just 3 days from ordering to receiving the mug! They're really high quality and the print quality is fantastic, You can personalise them with any message you like and the staff were very helpful regarding how it would fit etc before I purchased. At £10 it is a bit dearer than some other companies but the mug itself is worth it, its not a standard shape like most other personalised mugs are so its overall appearance makes up for it.
The website has a character restriction of 15 characters max - but if you contact them by phone you can sometimes squeeze a bit more characters in there. They let me do this for my grandma mug, but they have declined on some other personalised gifts in the past.
They have other mugs available too for other family members, I'll have to get some more ordered for the jealous ones later in the year! I may have to ask if they will make one up though as I can't see one for 'I love my grumps!' lol.
There's not really much more I can say about this other than if you love your grandma - you MUST buy her one of these! Fantastic quality, fantastic service, overall just simply fantastic!
We bought our nephew one of these for Christmas expecting the usual run of the mill lunch bags that are in the supermarkets - but wow were certainly we mistaken!
The print quality is fantastic compared to the ones you see in tesco etc, and it has the added bonus of being personalised. They only print names though and don't have the facility to print messages or anything extra which is a shame, a few other shops that sell personalised gifts do offer this service but unfortunately don't seem to sell Toy Story ones, must be something to do with the legal side of things Maybe.
Anyways, we ordered ours on December 3rd and it arrived on December 15th, which is VERY slow but I suppose with it being on the run up to Christmas it's to be expected. Customer service was fine - although when I called to ask if the order was still being processed (as order tracking isn't very helpful) I was just told it would be dispatched soon and there are no problems.
Overall very pleased with this bag, customer service could be a little better but not a big issue, this is definitely a recommended purchase for all Toy Story Fans!
We bought one of these personalised lunch boxes as a Christmas gift for our niece, she absolutely adores it and so do all of her friends! She took it to school on the first day back after Christmas and since then nearly the whole class have bought one too. They've become a must have thing at her school, lol.
The box itself it very high quality, it's like the old fashioned lunch boxes used to be that you rarely see these days. Everybody has lunch bags and plastic containers - but this is a proper lunch box as they should be. It has a plastic handle too which folds down into a recessed area so it sits flat. They're really easy to clean and fairly durable too. The only down side is the catch that closes the box can sometimes get loose, but as its plastic you can easily bend it back again and its fine.
As for the personalisation, it's the icing on the cake! My niece has an unusual name so its great to finally find somewhere I can buy personalised gifts for her - not only do this company print any name onto there stuff, they say you can even print a whole custom message, or add a photo or image of your own. (we will be trying this in the future, sounds cool).
The service we received from Giftarama was fantastic too, although it was a little slow in coming after we ordered it. It took 8 days from placing the order to receiving it - but then again it was December and they were extremely busy. They answered all of my emails quickly and seemed to go out of there way to help, they added a message along the bottom of our box which is an in-joke with our family.
Overall the personalised lunch box went down a treat and we will certainly be buying from these guys again! Fully recommended to everyone but word of advice - order well in advance around Christmas time as they seem to get extremely busy!
