Romantic Flair Personalized Mug Review + GIVEAWAY

Ever since my sons were born, I have had a tradition of buying a unique Christmas Tree Bauble for them each year, and after discovering Romantic Flair Original a couple of years ago, I have ordered them from Marthese - completely personalised with the picture and wording I choose!  Believe me when I say they are just gorgeous.

Marthese is now extending her wonderful talents to.... Personalized Mugs.  And the mugs are made of Fine Bone China with the images fired in a kiln (not screen printed like you find in most places that offer them)... which means that they are dishwasher safe.. and they do not fade with light or heat.  You simply provide Marthese with a special image, and a quote or message to put on the mug.  So the mug is completely personalised just for you or that special gift.  When you receive the mug in the mail, it is beautifully packaged in a gift box.

The mug I received from Marthese was just perfect.  I choose a very special family photo and included my own message.  Even though the photo I sent through was not ideal to use on the mug, Marthese played around with it until it worked (thanks Marthese!), and placed my message in nice script where it fit within the photo.  I am just so happy with the mug, it really is the most amazing gift.  If you think you might like to order one of these for your Mum for Mothers Day I recommend you order straight away to receive it in time (remember these are handmade by Marthese, and fired in a kiln, which does take a little bit of time).  You can find them in her store HERE.

I am so happy Marthese is very generously going to make one of you a personalized mug valued at $23!!  Please read entry conditions below carefully, as incorrect/incomplete entries will be invalid.

Hi Monique!
I would love this mug for my husband to take to work, he works away 6 months of the year and that way he could see his family when he is having a cuppa.

I love personalised mugs and give them to everyone for all kind of occasions. This particular one will be for home. We've broken a lot of mugs lately and what better way to replace them than to have a personalised one.

Hi Mon
This would be a gorgeous momento for Son and I...he's getting too old for me to capture such moments for much longer:-) love paulaK

I'd love to win as I don't have any personalised items and I think a mug with images of my family would be beautiful and very special as a keepsake!
I've left a comment on the other site too :)

I would love to give my mum one of these with a photo of me, hubby and our boys on it so she can see us everyday - even though we are on other side of Australia.

I would love to win this cup for my hubby. He is a man who has everything and it's hard to think of great gift ideas.

I would love to win one of these gorgeous mugs with a picture of my beautiful family on it to remind me each time I enjoy a tea/coffee of just how special my family is to me. xxx

Claire said...

I have a brilliant idea for an image on one of these Mugs and I'll have to win to have it made, thanks for the chance!

I'd love one for my mum who has 'everything' but a personalised mug with a mug shot of her favourite cherubs.
She can look at them a dozen times a day when she has a cuppa and especially when we move 300kms and she won't see them much.

I liked both your pages too :)

Aislin said...

This mug would be an ideal gift for my mother who insists she does not need anything even on MOther's Day!

Aislin said...

Liked both pages:)

Kirsty said...

Ooh this would be perfect for me! Considering its because of my "darlings" that my coffee always goes cold! At least if they gorgeous little faces were on the cup, I would still smile and probably just drink it cold!!

Im a liker on both pages :)
