CrossTimber is a unique family run business who specialize in name meaning gifts. The owners were homeschooled and now homeschool their own children. I found myself laughing out loud as I read how their name meaning business venture began. I could also relate to the story having sent two of my own children to a public school driver's ed program. You can read more about their story here. Their products not only include the meaning of the recipient's name but they also add in a Bible verse to go with the name meaning. They offer several categories of vibrant and colorful graphics to choose from to add to your product. The image categories are Faith & Inspiration, Animals & Creatures, People & Relationships, and The Great Outdoors.
We had the opportunity to review the Personalized Framed Plaque with Name Meaning and Bible Verse, and I had that personalized for my daughter. Perusing the website at all the beautiful images available, I also decided to purchase two additional coffee mugs for my boys as well.

All of my children were so excited when I presented them with their gifts! There is just something about seeing your unique name on an item that pushes it over the top. My original intent was to keep these for Christmas gifts but I just could not wait!
We received our gift items just after Hurricane Matthew departed and our package looked a little like it might have floated down the river to reach us. My first thought was, "there is no way those coffee mugs can be in one piece." Well, I was extremely happy to open up the package and see that they were completely in tact - not even a chip!
The name plaque we choose came in a 5x7 glossy print and is labeled as smudge free and fade free. We chose the metallic-brown frame and I was pleasantly pleased with the quality. It measures approx 6x9 and comes in a shiny brown metallic color. It is plastic but the color finish makes it seem metal. It includes a small hook for hanging and a stand. The color and style matched the name print we chose beautifully! The name plaques have 4 styles of frames to choose from and vary in price from $23-$29.95 + shipping. Those prices include the name print and frame. You also have the option of just choosing the 5x7 name meaning print itself if you wish. You can order those prints by mail or as a PDF printable and both cost $18 each + shipping .
Since I ordered 3 items, I received a 10% discount off my order and matching bookmarks or pocket cards which made my gift a little more special. You can also receive that same offer. See the graphic below for additional discounts! I think these products will make perfect Christmas gifts!
These are also wonderful gift ideas for that friend whose name is not spelled the traditional way or for the friend who has a unique name altogether. What I loved most about these products are the Bible verses that are researched and chosen to accompany the name meanings. What a beautiful way to share God's Word with family and friends!
