Review and ***Giveaway***: Personalized Parcels

Thursday, July 30, 2009 102 Post-It Notes

Being a "Mommy blogger" who does quite a few product reviews, the kiddos and I often get to try out new and innovative products. However, often times my husband gets left out. That is, until I worked with Dez Stephens from Personalized Parcels. Personalized Parcels are customized care packages for the special people in your life.The entire process was so much fun! I was like a kid at Christmas. I told her I wanted to do a Parcel for my husband. A "Thank you for being a Great Husband" Parcel taking the time out to thank him for being him. She sent me a short questionnaire and then she went shopping for him! When the Parcel arrived he was sooo excited. He had a personalized note from me, quite a few Nashville Predators merchandise, a book about being a father, and a Men's Health magazine just to name a few. It was AWESOME!


Dez Stephens started Personalized Parcels as a way to stay home with her adorable 5-month old baby boy, Merritt. She has been doing care packages for family and friends since she was a young kid and now has turned her personal passion into a money-making venture! A Mom after my heart. So the next time you are too busy to buy a birthday, anniversary, or just because present. Think about doing a Personalized Parcel. It would be a unique gift as well as helping out a great mom. Now onto the fun...Dez has offered a Southern Bella's Ways To Save reader their very own Personalized Parcel!!!

    I'd love to do a gift box parcel for my husband. There are times when I go off on a trip with my father (who is 81) and my husband is left at home. i get the feeling that my father is itching to get on another trip soon so this way with the parcel my husband would know that I love him.

    I would love to get a parcel for my aunt. She works hard at her job, takes care of two little boys, attends endless little league games and school fundraisers, and remains cheerful through it all. She spends so much time taking care of others, she could really use a care package for herself!

    This would be great for when I go on trips with my Mom and sister who I get to see very little. I could stay gone and not feel guilty by having this sent to my husband while on our girls trips.

  • Prissy said:  

    I would love to do one for my sister. She lives a few hours away, and I don't get to see her as often as I like. I would love to send her a personalized parcel!

    My mother would deserve one. She's bent over backwards for me through life, and continues to be there for me. And she's had some hard knocks the last couple of years.

  • Angela said:  

    I would have to pick the Perfect Husband parcel. I seriously injured my back the other day and my husband has really stepped up to the plate. He's done everything to finding babysitters for the kids while he takes me to the hospital, to cleaning the house, doing the laundry, all of the cooking, and taking care of the kids and me. I am bed bound for a few days, so it hurts that I'm not able to help him out. But he has been fantastic and hasn't complained once.

  • Belle said:  

    I would love to get this for my husband. I'm in the early weeks of pregnancy and not feeling quite myself. He has really stepped up to ensure that the household runs smoothly and that I get a little rest.

  • Jennifer said:  

    I would actually love to send one to my mom! She's the best mom in the world and I don't get to do much for her, so this would be great! And her birthday is at the end of this month also!
