FREE overnight shipping upgrade for James Avery orders February 5, 2010

So… Valentine’s Day is NEXT WEEK. Do you have something thoughtful for your Valentine? If not, do you have time to get that shopping done? Here’s a tip to make your shopping so much easier!

James Avery, one of my favorite jewelers based out of Kerrville, TX, is offering a FREE overnight shipping upgrade for orders placed by noon CST on Thursday, February 11th. His jewelry is of the highest quality and beautifully made. I’ve been wearing it for 20 years now, and pieces I received way back then still look brand new. Simply choose “Overnight PM” shipping then enter code NEXTDAY at checkout!

There’s something for every budget in the James Avery Valentine’s Day Catalog, but one piece that grabbed at my heartstrings is this gorgeous heart strings pendant.  It is 1″ long and would float beautifully along a simple chain necklace. It reminds me of the floating heart my parents gave me when I was a little girl.

If you have time to get to a store, visit a James Avery location near you.

Expires: Noon CST, Thursday, February 11, 2010

FREE monogramming on children’s gifts! November 9, 2009

Ok, I’m really spilling the beans here… This is my GO-TO source for baby/kid gifts. I first met Terri, the owner/founder of Brooke’s Line a few years ago at a craft fair in the Dallas area, and since then I’ve been a loyal customer. By now you know I’m a sucker for anything monogrammed, especially if it is soft and cuddly (check out their fleece blankets and plush cozies), or comes trimmed in eyelet lace (the most adorable diaper covers). Brooke’s Line covers those bases and more, and most items are $25 or less, some as low as $8!

So, how do you get the FREE MONOGRAMMING? Easy! Just enter code “BRNOV2009” in the comments section at check-out and you’ll get FREE MONOGRAMMING on your order — a savings of $5. (Since this is such a sweet deal on such sweet gifts, the code is limited to one free monogram per customer per order.)

And don’t just limit yourself to baby gifts… Think about tooth pillows for “big kids” who will soon await the Tooth Fairy, autograph pillows for kiddos about to have their first slumber parties, and comfortable lap desks to make car trips more fun!

Thanks, Terri!

 

30% OFF Gymboree: Friends & Family Sale November 5, 2009

Ooooh! This intro is for those of you with newbies or who are newbies to clothing shopping for kiddos… Target sells great clothes for the “going to be worn out quickly so buy it cheap” attire, but Gymboree sells the “buy it on sale and pass it down from kid to kid to kid” clothes! With their Friends & Family sale this Thursday through Sunday, you’ll save 30% OFF EVERYTHING — including SALE items! — and outfit a kid or kids with clothes that will LAST.

Seriously, the stuff we’ve bought from Gymboree I’ve been able to pass along from my kids to my godson, and still pass it on again after all of them have worn them!

For online purchases, use code GYMFAMILY and for in-store purchases, print the coupon here.

Perfect holiday gift for in-laws, party hosts, anyone! October 28, 2009

Pottery Barn has the perfect holiday gifts for your in-laws, party hosts, office assistant, and practically anyone else on your list… Especially those hard-to-buy-for people.  I’ll be honest; I’m a sucker for anything with a monogram, and I’m a traditionalist when it comes to presents. I also very much appreciate good customer service, so here are some deals that fit the bill!

Their monogrammed square soap set is on sale for $29 (with FREE shipping) – a set of 4 monogrammed with a single initial or a 3-letter monogram, and made of 100% vegetable-based ingredients. Do you have a mother-in-law? She wants these! Sure to earn you some brownie points!

Another gift item to check out is their linen hemstitch guest towels. They come in a set of 2 for just $19 (with FREE shipping), and add a monogram for just $6.50 more. Order a few sets to keep on hand for those last-minute hostess gifts, or plan ahead and order some monogrammed for the holidays. Need a gift for your boss? A set of these with his or her last initial would definitely have a good “Wow! You really thought of me!” factor.
