$18.97 Nap Mat with FREE personalization (includes shipping!) May 31, 2010

We’re getting ready for summer travel to friends’ homes and suddenly my 2yo is sleeping in a “big girl” bed… Eeeek! That means no more easy travel with the pack & play (playpen for us “old school” folks). Time to get a nap mat! They’re easy to wash, easy to carry, and perfect for toddlers or little ones when traveling.

Here’s a great deal on reversible nap mats from Lillian Vernon for just $14.98 including FREE personalization (regularly 19.98)! When you use code 410840100 at checkout TODAY, shipping will be a flat rate $3.99, making your personalized nap mat plus shipping just $18.97! That’s an incredible deal!

I like this one in particular because it doesn’t have an attached blanket, making it much less bulky than those with a blanket. Space is a priority when we’re packing the back of the car for road trips! (Plus, she prefers her pink monogrammed blanket from her Nana anyhow!)

Expires: Flat-rate shipping code expires today (5/31/10), and the sale on the nap mats has an unknown expiration

Thanks, RetailMeNot for the shipping code!
