Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts

Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts started about 5 years ago with the Anniver­sary Rose mak­ing roses for the tra­di­tional anniver­sary (i.e. 1st year paper, 2nd year cot­ton, 5th year wood etc). Then, they expanded into per­son­al­ized anniver­sary gifts, and also opened a sec­ond web­site called The Anniver­sary Rose! Both offer gor­geous Hand painted acces­sories includ­ing banks, jew­elry hold­ers, brush and comb sets, wal­lets and totes, duf­fle bags and back­packs, and sta­tionery — just to name a few!!

It all began back when they started get­ting many requests for per­son­al­ized Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Christ­mas gifts. That’s when they came up with Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts. They con­tinue to expand with new prod­ucts and updated equip­ment all the time which allows them to pro­duce most of the items and per­son­al­ize in house. They have every­thing on both of these phe­nom­e­nal sites!

Gifts range from pic­ture frames and photo albums, to orna­ments, t-shirts and baby creep­ers and rompers, and gifts for the home.

You can find items rang­ing from gifts for birth­days, wed­ding gifts, kitchen & bath, go-green can­vas tote bags, baby gifts, golf gifts and so much more! All of these gifts can be per­son­al­ized for all spe­cial occa­sions and hol­i­days. Are you in search of  brides­maid gifts, Christ­mas gifts, or a spe­cial Mother’s Day gift? Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts is defi­nately your one-stop shop!!

One of the things I really liked is that all of the gifts can be per­son­al­ized to make it extra spe­cial! They offer super fast per­son­al­iza­tion — and from per­sonal expe­ri­ence — their deliv­ery time as well as cus­tomer ser­vice skills are beyond outstanding!!

Dakota Gifts pack­ages using recy­cled paper, biodegrad­able peanuts and they ship USPS as often as they can because USPS already goes to every address every­day, so why make UPS or oth­er­wise waste all of that fuel? This is how they are try­ing to save the world, one gift at at time!


“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, 5th year wood etc) 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.”

I chose a really gor­geous clock to review, (Friends For­ever Keep­sake Heart Clock) and requested that they add the name ‘Becky’, for my best friend. It looked really beau­ti­ful in the pic­ture on the web­site, but after it was per­son­al­ized and deliv­ered to me, I can assure you that the pic­tures do not actu­ally do these gifts jus­tice! I was beyond impressed with it, and the com­pli­ments on it are end­less!! I will defi­nately be order­ing a lot more of these won­der­ful per­son­al­ized gifts from Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts as I am now sold on this great company!!


I give both of these amaz­ing sites a huge thumbs up! I totally rec­om­mend Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts and The Anniver­sary Rose to everyone!!
