Have you visited our new affiliate Hatch.co yet? It’s kind like a smaller version of Etsy, where products by dozens of talented indie “makers” are completely customizable with your choice of text, photos, or graphics. There’s everything from housewares to jewelry to clothing. If you want a really, really unique gift for someone (grandparent gift? wedding gift?) without breaking the bank, this is the way to go. I especially love the photo-based gifts (you can search easily by category).
I had the opportunity to try out a product from Hatch.com and chose this 11 x 14 Custom Stencil Sketch Poster ($42) of my kids, based on a photograph I provided (it was actually last year’s holiday card photo). It’s by Hatch “maker” Ink of Me, and I adore his work. The poster is digitally hand-drawn (no special Photoshop filters or actions) and I love how it turned out. Does it represent my kids at MOST of their typical moments? Of course not…that’s why it’s a special gift to myself!
Go take a look at all the wares at Hatch.co and find something special for someone even more special for the holidays.
I received a discount for my purchase at Hatch.co. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions are, as always, entirely my own.
