Disclaimer: Jade's Menagerie  provided me with a free samples of their product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product and giveaway.

Are in in search of that perfect, one of a kind gift for a loved one this Holiday Season?

Well, I have found the place you need to go online and check out!  All the Handmade products are created and made right here in the USA.  Plus actually serve a purpose and are unique.

But before you go and visit make sure your have your Holiday gift giving list in hand and plenty of time their offerings are plentiful and one of a kind.
Before I tell you about the amazing six different pieces I received to review, I need to explain how each of these one-of-a-kind pieces of art are created. 

Jade’s Menagerie and her team of talented artists hand create eclectic pieces right in the USA, at their studio in New Braunfels, Texas.  They started back in 1989 and typically you can only purchase their immense line of art at craft shows, but now they have a fully stocked online store to meet your one of a kind needs.  What a perfect idea for Holiday gift giving.

Speaking of their online store - they are also on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

And to get you into the Holiday Spirit + Save some money.  All Fishful Thinking fans can use the discount code "AMZN2013"  to get 20% off your order at Jade's Menagerie.  And when you purchase your products you can select from 3 different charities where 10% of your order will go to support the charity selected.  Amazing!!

So, back to these beautiful and creative one of a kind pieces of functional art.  Most of the concepts were born out of a need to make lives organized and less stressful (It is like they were reading my mind!!).  The love of color and design has inspired many of creations that are for sale. Jade's Menagerie work with American based companies for the raw materials used to create perfect gifts.  Gifts for pet lovers, moms, sisters, friends, grandmas and travelers to just list a few.

Look at all the amazing and one of a kind products I received...

Oooops, I wanted to start out by showing you how they arrived.  It felt and looked like Christmas!
Now on to all the useful and perfect gift items I received and I might add....LOVE!!!

Inspirational Collage Art - Jade's Menagerie offers so many choices but I selected the Sea Turtle Collage Wood Block Art to hang in my boy's room. It measures 5 1/2″x6″x1 1/2″ deep.
I like the bright hand painted colors and added details (like glittery circles, mesh-like additions and even something that looks feathery - but remember each piece is one of a kind) with the raised turtle picture.  

I like how light weight this piece of art is and that it comes with a hanger, already in place.   
It is wide enough that this art work could be set somewhere for decoration too.  The hand signed back is a great added touch.

The Abaca Leaf Business Card Holder (but many other designs are available)....
Is very sturdy and stands out with the shimmery colors.  I am in awe on how the little extra touches like the textured paper that is used as the background and the rustic underlay of materials on part of the front design adds to the charm and uniqueness.  Plus 80% is recycled paper products!  So eco-friendly here I come.

The Cowboy Checkbook (check out all the other checkbook styles for sale) ....
Another successful and usable handmade product.  The gold colored western items actually are 3-D and stand out above the mediums used below it: including feathery fabric, colored cardboard like star and multi colored paper underneath.  I can't wait to use this at the store and wait for all the compliments.

The Patrol Car Vehicle Insurance and Registration Wallet...
First, isn't this just fun?  I thought so.  I love the size of this hand made wallet (9″x4 1/2″). What a great idea and concept as we all need to keep our vehicle insurance and registration together in our cars. 

I am in heaven with the Washi Dragonfly Password Book!
Who ever came up with this book needs a hug and a kiss.  With the technology age....this is such a needed addition.  Now I can keep all my passwords together and even find them quickly with the easy to flip tabs.

Then Jade's Menagerie also offered Gift Sets like the Whimsical Dragonfly Gift Set

This high quality set included a credit card case, Checkbook and Address and Telephone Book.  The perfect packaged gift.

Happy Holiday's Everyone.  Remember it is no too early to start getting your gift purchased and ready to give!
