Holiday Gift Guide: Tatutina Take-out Menus

tatutina take-out menus
Take-out Menu Box RV$28


Tatutina
www.Tatutina.com

Happy painted Gifts for a Happy Life Style


About Company

Tatutina is a small family owned business out of Attleboro, Massachusetts that was established in 1984. Barbara along with daughters, Roberta and Georgia, strive to bring unique hand painted quality products into our world that reflect a happy and fun lifestyle.


Product Description

The best selling take-out menu box was created in 1999 by Tatutina. The Take-out Menu Box comes in two styles: Orginal (12" x 9" x 3") and Open Box(9.5" x 9.5" x 4"). They makes super gifts for any family, newly wed couple, college student or for anyone that loves to order take out!



My Thoughts

My family and I enjoy eating out from time to time and now we can pull out all those menu's that we have been hording in my kitchen cupboard drawer and add them to this gorgeous Take-out Menu Box. Tatutina has several new designs for the Take-Out Menu Boxes and an Open Menu Box style. I have reviewed several of Tatutina's products and have been thrilled with both the quality and the creativity that goes into creating each product.

Besides Take-out Menu Boxes, Tatutina has more cool stuff like recipe boxes, memory boxes, totes, wastebaskets, art supplies holders, and storage caddies! And for the kids, they have beautifully designed bookends, stools, peg boards, wooden letters, and much more. For the new parent they have a baby collection with baby melamine dish sets, keepsake boxes, min bin sets, diaper/wipes caddy and more. Guess what? They did not forget the family pet either. Put a smile on your pets face with the Dog and Cat Treat Boxes. With Christmas just a few weeks away, a gift from Tatutina would make a big hit!




Thanks to ChicExecs.com, an extraordinary PR firm that works with kind small businesses like Tatutina.

Sweet Arts Design
Where You Design Gifts For Children
http://www.sweetartsdesign.com/


About


What do you get when you add a web site consultant/software engineer and graphic designer? You get wonderful designs created by Amy Hallali of Sweet Arts Design. Amy  has been designing for more than 14 years.

The idea for Sweet Arts Design came about when she and her husband found out they were expecting twin daughters. They wanted to personalize the room with two of everything. They soon found out that this would be a difficult task because most of the products weren’t unique and different. Amy then decided to craft her own designs adding touches of their family’s French Heritage to the mix. With all of this, Sweet Arts Design was born.


Got a great frame from Hobby Lobby.

My Thoughts

I received a personalized Alphabet print for review. I chose an original design of the butterfly,  added the letter “S” in pink along with my daughters name to an 11” x 14” - Color 80 lb. acid-free print. The design is wonderful and my daughter  and I adore it.  We can’t wait to get it framed.

Sweet Arts Design is a great shop for anyone that wishes to find unique designs  to create special personalized items for most anyone and can be used for any occasion.  With over eighty original designs ranging from airplanes to zebra’s, there is bound to be one just for you. There are four language options, French, Italian, Spanish and English.



Products

  • Books - generic, personalized journals and personalized books
  • Prints - birth, personalized and Alphabet
  • Clothes - infant, kids, women and adults
  • Greeting Cards - Classic & Modern Styles
  • Notepads
  • Canvas Tote Bags


Help Our Children

For every Special Donation Print (11 x 14) purchased at Sweet Arts Design, they will donate five dollars to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. There are twenty-four original designs to pick from and it costs only $15.95 each.


Win! Thanks to Sweet Arts Design one of my readers could win an  11" x 14" Birth Print or Personalized Print of their choice. Visit Sweet Arts Design and tell us which one you would pick. Do you prefer the Birth Print or the Personalized Print? What design would you pick and what name? Remember your main comment must have your email. Thank you.

Holiday Gift Guide: Jessie Steele

Bib Josephine Cafe Toile© Apron ($32.95)


Jessie Steele
www.jessiesteele.com



What does retro and vintage have in common? Well, Jessie Steele of course. Jessie Steele is a mother-daughter business that strives to creates retro-chic vintage-inspired aprons with today’s woman in mind. Many of their aprons have been featured on Oprah, Desperate Housewives, and Days of Our Lives.

I received the classical and stylish Bib Josephine Cafe Toile© Apron ($32.95) from Jessie Steele to review. If you prefer, why not add the matching Cafe Toile© Terry Towel($7.95) and the Cafe Toile Scalloped Pot Mitt($6.95). Several of the aprons have matching mitts or tea towels. I think it would be adorable to purchase a matching children’s apron($22.95) for your daughter or granddaughter.


If you would like something more romantic or even whimsical, Jessie Steele has many wonderful heirloom aprons for just such an occasion.  You will find chef, hostess and children's aprons. You can accessorize many with matching oven mitts or tea towels.

Thank you Jessie Steele and ChicExecs.com for this wonderful opportunity to share your classy products with the readers at Loving Heart Designs.
