The Sunday Showcase Party w/ Dakota’s Gifts Giveaway {No.16}

Welcome to The Sunday Showcase Party!
UndertheTableandDreamingI’d like to introduce this week’s sponsor,
Dakota’s Personalized Gifts {The Anniversary Rose}.

A Little Bit About the Company: We started in a spare bedroom about 5 years ago more as a part time hobby than a business with The Anniversary Rose making roses for the traditional anniversary gifts (i.e. 1st year paper, 2nd year cotton) cutting rose petals by hand with scissors. It quickly grew from a part time hobby to a full time business, adding help and equipment to keep up. Then, we started expanding into personalized anniversary gifts. We started getting many requests from our customers for personalized wedding, Mother’s & Father’s Day and Christmas gifts etc. That’s when we started Dakota’s Personalized Gifts. Soon the business took over a second bedroom and the garage, the following year it occupying two bedrooms, the garage & a full basement. With no room left to expand we were forced to move into a commercial location in 2009. We continue to expand with new products and updated equipment all the time which allows us to produce most of the personalized items in house.

Dakota’s Personalized Gifts carries such a wide assortment of unique and fun gifts, you are sure to find something special for that someone special on your list…

Gifts for Men {here}

Gifts for Women {here}

and a great selection of personalized photo gifts, among other fantastic gift ideas as well!

One of my favorite items available is the Sitting in a Tree Photo Canvas {found here} I just love this whimsical piece that can be personalized with two love bird names. I was so excited to receive this piece from Dakota’s, and I can not tell you how impressed I am with the quality of service and super fast shipping. {especailly for a custom piece} This canvas would make such a super fun, unique gift for any couple; definitely a neat conversation piece.

  32. Hi Stephanie Lynn. Thank you for hosting the giveaway and link party again. I’m always happy when I’ve made something to link to your party.

  33. Stephanie Lynn, I visited the web site and in addition to loving the carved letters in the wood canvas that you pointed out above, I also love the pillow cases. There is one that says, “I asked her to marry me,” and the other lady’s pillowcase says, “And I said yes.” Although that would have to be reversed for me since I proposed to my hubby! I wonder if that would be possible 🙂 Have a great Sunday!

  34. I absolutely LOVE the tree canvas, and I must win it! Hopefully I’m the lucky one! Thanks for such a great giveaway!
