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!
