Anniversary Gifts {Product Review + Giveaway}

I love finding new and original gift ideas and that's exactly what I found when I stumbled across a really unique online shop called Little Okins.

Described as the "coolest gift for any happy occasion" these cleverly crafted boxes contain a personalized and customized note, cleverly enclosed inside a painted eggshell "that will reveal your personal message once cracked open".  

If you have been following The Petit Cadeau for a while, you may know that my husband loves Super Heros.  When I saw the Super Hero option at Little Okins, I knew it would be the perfect fun, silly anniversary gift.  

There are Little Okins available for all kinds of other special occasions, including: weddings (I love you, will you be my flower girl, will you be my bridesmaid), birthday, long distance relationships, love & new baby.  Seriously, how creative is that?  

I had to ask Tara before purchasing....."is it a REAL egg?" and indeed it is!  I was a little worried about damage to the egg during shipping, but everything was carefully packaged and my Little Okin made it from Los Angeles to Eastern Canada without issue. 

I was SO smitten with Tara's cool little shop that I asked her if she would consider hosting a giveaway for The Petit Cadeau readers, and she said yes!  Just in time for Valentine's Day (or any other occasion of your choosing).

  8. I like the blue with stars. This is a cute idea and inspires many ideas about what you could hide in that egg ;)

  9. Initial reaction was initials with heart, but I really like the blue stars, too. I agree that it would be really hard to break these! Ok, decisions, decisions -I've got to stick with my first reaction - I'd love to win the initials with the heart.
