I won a GREAT gift!

Alexandra from Design {for} Baby offered a giveaway on her blog from Woodgroove and I won! Alexandra's blog offers wonderful giveaways, reviews of great baby (and mommy) products and much much more. I'm always finding great ideas and products on her site. So when I saw this giveaway from Woodgroove that Alexandra was offering, I was immediately intrigued.

Woodgroove makes beautiful, laser engraved gifts. They make gorgeous, personalized wooden baby blocks and growth charts. My cousin was expecting twins and I was constantly, and a bit obsessively I'll admit, searching for the perfect gifts for her. When I saw these blocks, I knew they would make a really special gift. So I was thrilled when Alexandra emailed me telling me I had won a personalized block in her giveaway. My cousin has a family of 5, including newborn twins Landon and Caleb, so I had each of their names engraved on a side of the block and put Family on the sixth side. Woodgroove even offers many different font possibilities and an interactive font tool so you can see exactly what your inscription will look like in the font you've chosen. It's very cool! I spent lots of time deciding on one font for my block.

Well, I received my block last week and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I was so so impressed when I opened it up. It came in a lovely little gift box packed with baby blue paper crinkles. How did they know it was a gift to celebrate newborn twin BOYS?! That mystery just added to the excitement. And because my cousin gave birth on Thursday, I was VERY excited to give this to her. I knew she was going to love it. And she did! She thought it was wonderful. And I felt like a really great cousin giving it to her.

My only disappointment is that, in my excitement about the new boys' arrival and the beauty of the block, I wrapped it and gave it to my cousin before I remembered to take a picture of it to feature on my blog! I'm sad that I don't have a picture to show you all, but take my word for it, it came out exactly as Woodgroove's site said it would.

These are just a few examples of what you can do to personalize these blocks. They would make great gifts for new parents, teachers, grandparents, etc.

Big thanks to Alexandra from Design {for} Baby and Woodgroove for offering this giveaway! I'm thrilled with how the block turned out!
