Perfect Personalized Gifts from Registry Less Traveled #review and #giveaway! US 11/16

~Review by Jayedee from Life in the Lost World blog.~ 

Once upon a time there lived an elderly little princess of a dog. A cross (we think) between a Chihuahua and Pomeranian and all of about 5 pounds, soaking wet. She lived a comfortable life, waiting for bits of scrambled eggs at breakfast and riding on her guardian's lap whenever it was time to go bye-bye. An idyllic life, to be sure. Suddenly, it all changed when the little princess found herself out on the streets of a rural area. Both she and her elderly Pekingese companion were victims of dump dog syndrome - something that happens when a dog is no longer wanted, taken to a rural area or city neighborhood, unceremoniously dumped and left to fend for themselves. Many of these dogs end up as bait dogs for dog fight rings, tortured and mistreated by evil people, hit by cars or euthanized in kill shelters. Thankfully, our elderly princess, by a strange turn of events, ended up in my house to be pampered and loved as she lives out her last days. Rosie, as she's known in this life, is an adorable little munchkin of a dog, tongue hanging out one side of her mouth (because there are no teeth to hold it in) and following me where ever I go.

 When offered a chance to review a personalized dog bowl from The Registry Less Traveled for our Holiday Gift Guide this year, we knew just who to have it made for. You guessed it! Our little Rosie Posie is an official member of the family now!

The Registry Less Traveled is located in Charlotte, NC and specializes in handmade etched glassware and personalized gifts. Personalization is always free. In a gift-giving world full of boring registries and gift cards, it has become increasingly difficult to find memorable and personal gifts that aren't outrageously expensive. Our products are designed for people who want to say "Congratulations!" with more than a dish towel or a spatula. We take pride in offering high quality registry-like items that won't break the bank. When it comes to gift giving, take the Registry Less Traveled.

Rosie's bowl is no wimpy little dog dish. It's wonderfully sturdy and meant to stand the test of time. While it's not too heavy for easy handling for me, it has enough heft that her royal highness can't push it around the floor. The eching is crisp and clean and the personalized font, I was able to pick, is whimsical and fun!

Don't have a precious pooch that needs a personalized place setting? No worries! The Registry Less Traveled has many many other offerings. With personalized glassware and serving pieces for all occasions, from holidays to weddings, you're sure to find the ideal gift! Shop owner, Beth, LOVES custom orders, so send her a little note explaining your needs/ideas and she'll get back to you in a flash!

As a fun way of introducing you to this wonderful shop, The Registry Less Traveled is offering a pair of adorable personalized stemless wine glasses etched with the saying " It's not drinking alone if the dog is home" to a single winner. How cute are these?

  1. CONNIE SOWARDS commenting: I like the Etched Glass Pet Bowl (Small Dog or Cat)- Personalized with name. My cat likes to move her bowl around so maybe she won't be able to do that as easily with this bowl. My cat's name is Nala and I think it would be cute to see her name on the food bowl!

  2. Personalized Wedding Date/Engagement Date/Anniversary Date/Baby Birthdate Keepsake- Black painting on white canvas 12"x24"

  3. I like the Personalized Etched Pint Glass Set - Mommy and Daddy baseball theme with baby's birthdate
