zazzle celebrations

This post brought to you by the new Zazzle. Make your next celebration magical with personalized party goods.

Are you familiar with Zazzle? I was first introduced to the company by Jenny, The Bloggess — she uses their services to put funny, weird, and sometimes irreverent captions and images on t-shirts, hats and mugs. And not just Jenny. Virtually anyone (yes, that means you!) can create a shop on Zazzle and add your own designs to tote bags, dishes, pillows, candles, aprons, even flip flops — without having to actually stock any products. In fact, the product won’t be created in real life form until someone orders it. Pretty cool, right?

Well, I’m excited to tell you Zazzle recently relaunched! They have a gorgeous new site that is easier to use than ever. And now, the focus is beyond opening your own shop. The new site is an ideal source for finding everything you need for your next party, event or celebration — and every single bit of it can be customized to your liking!

To celebrate the new launch, I’m showcasing some of my favorite party picks from their vast, vast inventory. Here’s what I’ve got bookmarked:

zazzle products

1) Personalized Luggage Tags. Such a great party favor idea! I always appreciate favors that are truly useable.

2) Red Heels Pillow. This would make a memorable housewarming gift for a bestie.

3) Personalized iPhone Cases. Love these! And Zazzle offers options for every kind of smart phone and device (not just iPhones). It would be fun to give out something like this in the Alt Summit gift bags.

4) Retro Sauce Invitations. Wouldn’t these be perfect for a Labor Day BBQ? And this Summer Bash invitation would be ideal for an August pool party.

5) T-Rex Tote Bags. Give these to party guests so they can collect fossils. And here are some cute Dinosaur Party invitations, too. Such a terrific party theme!

6) For a Bon Voyage send-off party, have customized Flip Flops made for the guest of honor. I’m digging all these nautical designs.

7) Spooky Owl Halloween Supplies. I’ve missed Halloween while we were in France. I can’t wait to celebrate this year.

8) Personalized Binders. This would make a cute hostess gift at a recipe exchange. Or you could create customized binders for Back to School!

9) Carnival Bunting. This is pictured in the photo at the top. You can order each separate letter as a postcard, then trim and hang. Genius. Lots of other bunting designs, too.

I’m so impressed with the relaunch! In my head Zazzle was mostly t-shirts and mugs, so I’m giddy to discover just how many options they offer. Flip flops! Messengers Bags! Bunting! I honestly had no idea. My mind is spinning with ideas…

P.S. — When I say vast, I mean vast! The first time I put in a search on the new site, I think there were 500,000 results. Hah! So feel free to be as specific as you’d like in your searches — instead of searching “party invitation” try “pirate party invitations”.
