Review: Name Meaning Gifts from CrossTimber

If there is anything that my family seems to get a big kick out of it is receiving gifts with their own names on them.  Placing someone’s name on a gift seems to make things extra special. CrossTimber, however takes it a step further when they include the meaning of the name as well as a Bible verse. CrossTimber is quite the amazing little company with a unique passion for sharing positive and encouraging name meanings through beautiful name meaning gifts.


CrossTimber is a family business had its start as a photography and printing business.  What began as a homeschool project has blossomed in a beautiful company centered on lifting up others with unique name meaning gifts.  The owner John loves to research the history and meanings of names and he will personally look up any name you provide to help you choose the perfect gift.

Products they offer:

  • Framed Plaques 5X7 or 8X10
  • Coffee Mugs
  • Music Boxes
  • The Names of God plaques

For this review many, Review Crew members were offered a Personalized Framed Plaque with Name Meaning and Bible Verse to review as this is the core product that CrossTimber offers.  There are many examples of this on their website.

I however am a lover of all things coffee and I couldn’t pass-up a gorgeous coffee mug so I asked for that option.  It did cost me a couple of dollars to cover the price difference but I was more than happy to pay.  I emailed John my chosen name (my own-Crystal) and he promptly replied with the meaning.  Yes as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have that on my mug every morning.


So what does the name Crystal mean?  Well I have to say I wasn’t entirely surprised by the first part… from Latin in means “Sparking, Enduring, Strong.”  Ha! Crystal means sparkling… who knew.  Enduring and strong too? Yes just the message I needed to give myself every morning.  LOVE IT!

Also included was a scripture chosen for me… I asked if you can personalize that and I was told yes you can.

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” John 7:37-38

I love filling my life with positive Biblical reminders and this mug is a sweet way to do just that for myself… every morning.


A fantastic bookmark was tucked in my order as an extra tidbit for me. I love it and it now lives in my Bible.

The ordering process was very easy.  I chose my product and flipped through a great variety of background choices.  Actually this was the hardest part for me personally.  WHICH BACKGROUND SHOULD I CHOOSE?  Once I had all of my options picked out I just hit order and it was done. It arrived promptly wrapped in special foam to keep it perfect while shipping.  How can this get any better?
