Personalized Plates from Expressionery: Review and Giveaway

With the holidays just around the corner, many people are starting to think about hosting a party or starting to prepare a list of people to buy for.  Both of these tasks can be quite daunting (which for people like me, triggers procrastination!).  How do you make that party memorable?  What do you buy for your great Aunt Marge?  Fortunately, I was sent something that really can help you solve BOTH problems!

Expressionery has come out with a new line of personalized melamine plates that can certainly add a unique touch to any dinner party or provide that special gift for the impossible recipient.  These 10 inch plates come in many colors and styles, but my favorite has to be the Zebra Print Plate!  How fun would it be to create a personalized plate for each party guest that they could take home as a souvenir of the event?  This hot pink and black plate would sure make for a festive table setting!

I was sent the Bella Bird in Blue plate and it could not be any cuter!  The plate is a nice quality and is dishwasher safe (but don’t put it in your microwave!).  I think this design would be perfect as a gift because you can personalize a special message to create a smile.  And best of all, Expressionery is offering an incredible deal on these plates from now through February!  If you spend $75, take $25 off, spend $100 and get $35 off, spend $150 and get $55 off.  Not looking to spend $75? Enter code SEASON40 at check out and receive 40% off your purchase.  The plates can be purchased for $25 at the regular price (which makes it only $15 with the 40% discount!).

Don’t think a personalized plate is the way to go?  Check out the other great gift options from Expressionery such as the Changeables Quotes gift set or some adorable stampable stationary.
