A couple of weeks ago I was approached by Zazzle online marketplace to review some of their products and after browsing through this site many times in the past, I was only too delighted to get on board!
Zazzle is an online marketplace focussed on indie and branded designs. It also acts as an amazing platform for customers to create their own custom products and gifts! Zazzle itself is based in California, but surprisingly enough they have their head office based in Cork! A+ for Irish enterprise 🙂
Zazzle offers a huge range of cute, trendy and kitsch products to suit all ages, occasions and budgets. From cards and invitations, to clothing, home accessories and craft supplies. Zazzle is a fantastic site for gift ideas, particularly if you want something more personalised and a little bit special!
Jessica at Zazzle very kindly allowed me to choose four tank tops of my choice to review. Picking them was quite challenging, as there are so many styles, colours, patterns, prints and slogans to choose from, most certainly something for every occassion. I had to stop my browsing and just make my decisions! I could have easily browsed the site in awe and wonderment all day! I finally settled on the following;
Dandelion Wishes Tank Top Tshirt in grey £20.95 (around €29.42)
I really loved this particular tank top! The cotton, polyester and spandex mix meant that the material was lovely and soft and had good stretch in it. The pattern and slogan are pretty and subtle and I love that the dandelion motif carries around to the back of the top. This tank is perfect for a casual look with your favourite skinny jeans!
“Je t’aime” T-Shirt in black £23.95 (around €33.65)
I love clothes and accessories that reference the french language , so I was really drawn to the cute slogan and heart pattern on this tank. Another cotton, polyester and spandex mix, making this tank really comfortable. In hindsight I should have gotten it printed on a white or grey tank as you can’t see the print too well as it’s printed on black, but that’s the wonderful thing about Zazzle, there are loads of colours to choose from. Pink, coral, yellow, green… you can really put your own stamp on these items.
Chic Tshirt Preppy, black on black stripes FL tshirt in white £24.95 (around €35.00)
I think this was my favourite tank out of the lot! The material is a polyester and viscose mix and it is so soft. It is loose-fitting (my favourite) and the ‘L’ monogram is unique to my name 🙂 . So cute and really comfortable. I would have liked the print to be a little bit darker and more defined, but the semi faded print really gives this tank a nice laid back and ‘worn’ look. You can customise this tank top with a letter of your choice! I feel like this top was made just for me, because of the cute monogram! For that reason, I think I could style it with anything, to put my personal style stamp on any outfit!
“I Want to Sleep Under Unfamiliar Stars” Night Sky T-Shirt in navy £26.20 (around €36.80)
This one was my least favourite tank, simply because it was a little bit on the small size for me to wear out comfortably. I’m not a fan of anything that’s tight around my tummy. The tank itself is by American Apparel and Jessica had warned me in advance that they are notoriously small fitting. This navy tank is 100% combed cotton, but I didn’t love the material on this one as much. I much preferred the softer, looser fitting cotton tanks. In saying that, the tank itself and the pattern and slogan makes this a perfect (and very appropriate) pajama top! I’ll certainly have sweet dreams wearing this 🙂 .
While I agree that the pricing on these tanks is kind of pricey. you are paying for personalised and unique items. Many items on Zazzle marketplace are handmade and created by a wealth of talented and crafty artists. Many items are handmade and customised how you like, so it’s worth that extra few euro for a really special and unique gift for a loved one!
If you’d like to order or create you own tank you can visit their website here. There are some fantastic gift idea’s on Zazzle, make sure you pop over to their website to take a look at their cool products. And great news if you are a crafty fox, you can sell your designs on Zazzle too!
*Huge thanks to Jessica at Zazzle who kindle sent me these garments for review.
