Red Envelope means luxury

So, the nice folks at Red Envelope came to me and asked if I’d like to do a little product review/giveaway with them, and I said heck yes because I already own several items from there and love all of them. Everything I’ve ever gotten from Red Envelope feels like it just adds a little bit of class to my home. But far be it from me to turn down the chance to get something super cool for free review an item for the benefit of my readers. Ahem.

I figured that with Father’s Day around the corner, I’d check out some of their Father’s Day gifts online; their photo frame valet seemed like the perfect “Dad” gift. I’m happy to report that—as with other merchandise from Red Envelope—the quality is excellent. The valet is substantial, it has a nice weight to it and the hinges for the lid don’t feel like they’ll break off or bend. The leather feels rich and the finish on the wood is gorgeous. And I love that we can slip a photo into the frame and it becomes something much more personal than the typical sort of divided box you find at a department store. This would make a perfect Father’s Day gift for the special dad in your life.

But here’s the thing—maybe you’d rather have something else. I understand. So how about this week our contest winner will get a $50 gift certificate towards anything at Red Envelope? That way you can get what you like best.

To enter this week’s contest, first please review the contest rules and regulations, and then please visit and “like” Red Envelope’s Facebook page, then come on back here and leave a comment by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Friday, June 3rd, 2011 for a chance to win. Winner to be selected via random number generation and fanciness of monogram. Except the monogram thing seems complicated, so I guess just random number.

Ready? Go!
