Gift Skins Review & Giveaway

I'm a big fan of personalized gifts, but I recently discover the presentation of personalized wrapping paper from GiftSkins.com. A beautiful representation of your style. At first I was going to use 2 pictures of my sons for our paper. In the time of choosing the design, we lost our Jack, so I decided to use a photo of him & one of the boys.
This Gift Paper has such a deeper presence than off the shelf wrapping paper. It has loved ones on it and is memorable, creative, and a reflection of our family. My choice, the Holiday Hot Dots Gift Wrap, I like the color, a little nontraditional, but very cute modern design.

Measures 19.75 x 76.75in. One roll will wrap three medium size gifts. This is gifting paper with meaning and will be treasured by the recipient. I love the grids on the back. Designing my paper on GiftSkins was very easy and probably took about 2 to 3minutes. They shipped very fast!

GiftSkins.com has all your personalized gift wrap needs covered "Wedding Gift Wrap, Birthday Gift Wrap, Graduation Gift Wrap, Valentine's Day Gift Wrap & More."

Thanks to GiftSkins.com for being a part of Life Is A SandCastle 2010 Holiday Gift Guide. Giftskins Will give one of my readers a roll of wrapping paper of choice, as well as 20 gift tags
