Let’s face it, shopping for birthdays and holidays can be a huge pain in the keister. It’s part of the reason gift cards have become so popular and are so easy to find. Go to a grocery store or even a pharmacy and they’re right by the checkout counter. Sure, it’s simple, but they’re not very personal and often leave the recipient with an unused, unwanted balance.
So when we had the opportunity to review products from CafePress.com related to the Marine Corps for a 30% off promotion they are running, we jumped at the opportunity to check out a site with customizable Marine gifts – instead of the stuff everyone else has (Details and the coupon code for the 30% off discount below).
Even if you’re not the creative type, CafePress.com has tons of exclusive designs and products, from Marine T-Shirts to Marine Mugs. Also, they are officially licensed to sell items with all of the military branches logos.
After shopping around for a bit, we settled on the EGA Black and Gold Throw Blanket. It’s the classic Eagle, Gold and Anchor emblem of the United States Marine Corps on a black, fleece throw blanket. Perfect for the couch.
So we ordered and were pleasantly surprised when it arrived. There’s good contrast in the colors, the image is clear, and the US Marine blanket is really soft. It’s printed in the U.S. too, which is nice to see.
It was also nice to see the size was as expected, at 60”x50”. Of course, as anyone with pets knows, as soon as a new item enters the house, it immediately belongs to them, or is at least due for an inspection. It was no different with the EGA throw blanket. It looks like this one might not be a marine gift after all…
All in all it was a good experience, and with a sitewide 30% off until 8/25/17 (with a few exclusions), we can comfortably endorse a visit to Café Press to try them out. Use coupon code: USMCLIFE to get the 30% off.
