Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
If you’re looking for meaningful personalized gifts, we highly recommend checking out CrossTimber. Their name-meaning gifts include mugs, Name Bookmarks, name cards, wall plaques, activity packs, and more. We were given five Name Bookmarks and an AmazingName Print Activity Sheets in exchange for this review. As soon as the children saw them and learned they had other products, too, they immediately added name-meaning mugs to their Christmas wish lists. Other families reviewed an 8X10 plaque print or five name cards, so be sure to click on the image at the bottom of this review for more ideas of what CrossTimber offers.
We chose the bookmarks, since we incorporate lots of reading in to our homeschool. I went to the CrossTimber website and chose a design for each person.
Categories of designs include:
Each main category has sub-categories that include things like sports, Scouts, flowers, faith, fantastical and imaginative, etc., so there are plenty of choices to personalize a gift for everyone in your family or group.
You also get to make sure the names are spelled exactly as you wish, which makes it nice for more unique names or spellings.
When I ordered, I honestly didn’t realize the extent of their available choices for designs and quotes. Although everyone was pleased with what they received, I will have fun making their Christmas mugs even more personalized.
You can choose a text for each product, including
a presidential quote,
famous author quote,
a Scripture verse that matches the name meaning,
a character quality,
or create your own custom text.
Alternatively, you can have the company choose a text for you.
I have done extensive research on each name in our family and each member has an assigned “blessing verse,” but I wanted to see what the company would choose. Again, we were all pleased with what they sent, but I will make their Christmas mugs tailored to what we’ve chosen for each person. I love CrossTimber’s extensive resources to create the exact product you have in mind.
If you have any questions as you’re perusing the website, or after your order arrives, CrossTimber’s customer service is excellent. They truly strive to make each customer’s experience as positive as possible.
I ordered the AmazingName Print Activity Sheets for our 5-year-old. These activity packs include a hard copy of 28 pages of activities that came with our order, but also a link to download and print the pack as many times as we want. Almost all of the activities were too detailed for our 5-year-old, but our 9-year-old would LOVE them with her name! I know our 5-year-old will grow into the activities, so that’s okay, and maybe others her age would do better with the detailed ones than she did.
CrossTimber was started two decades ago when the owner was in driver’s ed class and was made fun of by his peers for not knowing what a DUI was. He went home and researched the names of each class member and his teacher, and created name blessing cards for each of them, hoping to show them another way of living. The students and teacher were so blessed, many shared testimonies of how that experience shaped and formed their life in some way. What began as a “bless your enemies” project has turned into a family business, continuing to bless and encourage many.
CrossTimber also offers business printing solutions.
