Stocking Stuffer Ideas -- Personalized Bicycle Deck of Playing Cards (Review)

I have stumbled across the best gift to give that person who has everything -- a deck of cards, personalized with a special photo just for them.  Neat, huh?  Well, you really have to see the playing cards up close to appreciate the quality and sentimental feel for them.  I ended up creating a deck of cards with one of my favorite photos of my daughter riding their toy choo choo train together.  This photo has been my computer computer wallpaper, and is carried around in my wallet.  But, now I can show off my girls in a fun, new way -- on my own personalized deck of Bicycle playing cards.  

Ordering was easy, and is done through the website.  I would say the only hard part is choosing the photo you want to go on the cards, which are make in only 4 business days.  And, once you place your order, you can expect to receive your cards in 1-2 weeks, which is fast for a personalized gift.  Instead of receiving the playing cards in a box, your personalized deck will come in a clear case -- making it great to display or leave out of the coffee table for a conversation starter. :-) 

When my parents came to visit for Thanksgiving, we ended u playing card games once the girls went to bed.  Having not seen my personalized deck of playing cards, they were in for treat.  As I began to shuffle them, my dad was first to pick up on how they didn't look like your average deck of cards.  He thought I was playing with joke cards, and asked to see one.  I handed him one of the playing cards, and a smile instantly appeared.  He flipped the card around to show my mom, and she, too, smiled.  How could you not when you see a precious photo like that of your children or grandchildren on a deck of cards?  My parents agreed that this was a novel idea, and one that they hadn't seen before.  I told them I was reviewing the product for my holiday guide, and they asked if they would be getting a deck from me as a gift - hint, hint!   Don't tell them, but they will have a surprise in their stockings this year -- their own personalized deck of Bicycle playing cards of their granddaughters to admire come game night or during their solo solitaire games. :-)

So, if you are looking to surprise that special someone with a unique and fun gift that can be treasured for years to come, why not create a deck of playing cards for them, with a photo that has special meaning to you both?  And, starting at only $20.95, you can't go wrong, for this special keepsake. :-)  These cards would also make a great baby announcement or wedding favor gift, and one that would not be expected.
