Pic The Gift - Beach Towel Review and Giveaway

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

I'm an easy mark for personalized products. I like finding merchandise that can be made into gifts personable to the recipient. To me, it makes that gift just a little more special.

Pic The Gift is a company that's here to serve the personalized photo gift industry. They offer several personalized items from phone cases and photo mugs to photo mouse pads and personalized doormats. What makes the company even more distinguished is that they offer free shipping on all orders and there is no minimum purchase requirement.

My son, Adam, swims a lot at the campground pool and I knew a personalized photo beach towel would be perfect for him. In order to create the towel, I went to Pic The Gift and started personalizing it. What I found really impressive was that I could add several photos and text to the towel. I used the design tool to position photos how I wanted and add Adam's name. An error message occurred if I added any photos that would potentially be too blurry or grainy. After making the towel how I wanted, I was given the option to choose which color I wanted the front of the towel to be; I went with brown. The back of the towel is white in color. Although I chose not too, I could add photos to the back of the towel for an additional fee.

The personalized photo towel arrived in a timely fashion. What I first noticed is that it's softer than most beach towels. It has a soft blankety feel rather than a terry towel feel. I wasn't sure how well it'd fare with being wet with water but the material was absorbent. The towel is 30"x60" in size and just fits around Adam's waist. The pictures I had put on the towel are mostly clear. There are a couple areas where the pictures look somewhat faded but I think that's due to the towel material. Adam thinks his personalized beach towel is quite swell and likes to show it off when he's at the pool. He also likes to tell others of the memories he has from the pictures on the towel.
Win It!
Three people will each win a personalized photo beach towel from Pic The Gift.
