I was very excited about receiving a mini personalised Christmas stocking from ‘Memory Stuffies’. I spoke to Emma through the ease of Facebook messaging; she was very friendly and quickly let me know what information she needed to complete my order. The questions were – ‘what name would I like’, ‘which font would I like’ and ‘did I want the year included’. My order was completed in just a couple of days and was received within a week of ordering.
On arrival the packaging was simple yet efficient, and once opened revealed our new cute little stocking. I chose to just have my daughters name without the year. Personalisation has always been something exciting for myself and my daughter as we both share names that are not mainstream.
The Mini Stocking is made of a quality traditional red coloured felt, soft to the touch, topped of with a thinner white fabric similar to a felt paper in appearance. The sides are stitched with a herringbone technique using a fine white thread; the embroidery on the name ‘Evalynn’ also uses the same fine white thread. The font on the name is very delicate and swirls in a similar way to calligraphy. Finished of with a red gingham ribbon and a basic red button making the mini stocking hang-able were ever you would like it displayed.
We are looking forward to having this adorn our Christmas tree in a few weeks.
Overall I would rate the experience, turnaround time, and quality of the finished item 5 out of 5. The service was friendly, fast, and the finished item is lovely, the only improvements that I could suggest for the future is to possible make the names larger so that they fill the space more, as the font is quite delicate if it was larger you would notice more of the intricate detail.
Besides that they are also brilliant value for money at only £2 each with discount on multiple buys. Very happy.
Price: £2 each with discounts for multiple buys (plus postage).
