The other month I got a phone call from a random person asking about this blog and if I would do reviews. The lady who called me has a client who creates custom hand stitched pillows for your couch or chair for married people, anniversaries, etc… She also happens to be gay friendly and wanted to know if me and my husband would want a free pillow and if I liked it, would I review it.
I said sure, I’d be happy to, but I don’t have a husband. How about a boyfriend? Nope. Ummm…are you dating someo…………..and I stopped her and said look, I’m bitter, I’m 22ish and have a cat lol. How about instead of me and a boyfriend or husband, you do one for me and my cat. She thought it was a great idea so I sent her the cats name and she asked an awesome question, how old is he. She listened very well to me when I said in 2007 because she also got a ton of other information like the colors, date I adopted him, etc… Eventually when I didn’t get the pillow from LBMgifts.com, I started to forget about it. It is the holiday season and she is giving me a free one so I didn’t expect it overnight. Then all of the sudden I ended up getting a knock on the door about three weeks after we talked and there was a box.
Inside the box was a gorgeously wrapped package in red and black paper. It also had a letter on it, a black tool ribbon and a bell which immediately became a cat toy for Frost (btw, my allergies to him are finally going away). When I opened the letter there was a really nicely typed out message for me about how she is happy to create this pillow and has created a section on her website for cat adoption pillows where she is actually featuring Frost and I.
LBMGifts.com is awesome. I love that they listened to every detail and came out with a pillow that shocked me. Instead of saying happy 5 years or something about an anniversary, she put established and the date I adopted him. It was an awesome touch that made me smile and made it something that won’t collect dust, but is actually on my couch right now. It’s the only non store bought, modern or higher end thing in the room. It also actually looks amazing with the Tiffany lamp I got two holiday seasons ago. Normally I would never buy something that would come from a craft store, but when you have a person who goes overboard to turn something she loves and is passionate about into a gift that makes people smile because she goes that extra step to make it special, this pillow will always be one of the things you see and sometimes see me cuddle with on the couch.
I absolutely love the pillow and love the company and encourage you to order at least one thing from them this holiday season. They have amazing products (tons of awesome spa gifts, bathrobes and favors for parties and weddings), they are gay friendly and they are animal friendly. I love their store and will definitely be ordering from them in the future. Thank you again for the wonderful pillow and Frost loves it and the bell as well.
