Stash It Giveaway

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving break. We had a blast in North Carolina and I even did all of my Christmas shopping. Y'ALL, I'm so bad... I already starting handing out gifts as soon as we arrived home. I can not keep secrets. I guess I'm going to have to purchase more gifts on Christmas Eve. That's the ONLY way I can keep the gifts a secret.

The nieces and nephews got some new pajamas and some nostalgic toys from an awesome store in Asheville. If you haven't visited Asheville... we highly recommend it! It's our favorite city.

Sisters received some new wine glasses and some of these handy bags that you can carry in your purse.   I feel in love with LOVE REUSABLE BAGS. They even do school fundraisers. You wouldn't believe how much fits inside each sack.

The bags are perfect for teachers, coworkers and parent volunteers. I love that if you order from the Gwaltney pattern the company gives a sack to the fijikindeproject . AWESOME charity by the way!

This is the Fiji Kinde Project from Fiji Kinde Project on Vimeo.

Fiji Kinde Project sends teams of educators to develop early childhood education throughout the villages of the Fiji Islands. One by one, village by village, they have already established close to 70 Kindes, impacted over 1500 children and trained over 200 teachers. By chance, volunteers for Fiji Kinde took our bags on a trip in 2010. The durability, compactness, and water resistance of the STASH IT convertible tote was ideal for students and teachers in Fiji... great for carrying books and supplies in wet and rugged conditions.

Your contribution in purchasing a unique Gwaltney print will send a very useful product to these kids and teachers.

  10. Is that the Biltmore estate behind your husband on the first picture? It sure looks like it. We visited NC about 10 years ago during the spring and it was so beautiful there. I love all the snow on the ground. Living in Louisiana that doesn't happen to often, I am sure you know what I mean since you live in Florida.


  11. I do gift certificates for everyone. Then you can never go wrong! :)

  12. Those bear-bottom jammies are too cute!

    I can share some things on my husband's list: beer-brewing kit, re-useable chopsticks, watches, cozy robe & slippers, woodworking tools, wine decanter, and the helmet cam another person mentioned!

    LOVE the bear bump!

  15. My hubby loved getting an iPad. Kind of spendy but he uses it everyday!

  16. Last year I got my husband a heated mattress pad from Amazon. He said that besides marrying him, it was the best gift I'd ever given him!

  17. i always buy my husband bourbon...or possibly an apple gift card. my dad is getting a "nest home thermostat" this year!

  18. What about a Stabucks gift card if they like coffee?
