$10.50 Lands’ End backpack & FREE SHIPPING August 30, 2010

BackpackTwo things I love about Lands’ End — quality products and stellar customer service. I remember my dad always ordering his business shirts from this company, and I’ve owned countless backpacks and totes made by Lands’ End (one of them is 13 years old and still toting strong!).

Here’s a fabulous Lands’ End backpack for just $10.50 with FREE SHIPPING! This FeatherLight 100 backpack, available in this “true navy plaid” or a “golden khaki plaid,”  is geared for kids ages 5-8 (or folks who just need a smaller-sized backpack). Like so many of their products, you can have it monogrammed for just $5.  To score your FREE SHIPPING, enter code AUG30 and pin 2074 at checkout.

At this price, please consider ordering a few to donate to local shelters or foster programs. For example, Metrocare Services in Dallas would be thrilled to receive these for the children, teens, and adults they serve!

Expires: Unknown, but based on the code for the FREE SHIPPING, I’m betting that code expires today, Aug. 30, 2010.

Thanks, SlickDeals!

You wake up in the morning, and hop into the shower. You emerge renewed, feeling energized and squeaky clean… Then you use your ancient towel to dry off, except that it barely has any life left to it… They’re stained with bleach and hair dye, and tattered around the corners. Blech!

You can get a full set of towels for just $25.60 (includes wash cloth, hand towel, and bath towel), or buy them individually. Monogramming is even available!

And, if you’re in need of a baby gift, wedding gift, or graduation gift, personalized towels are a great go-to gift item. Go with the white ones with a monogram, and you simply can’t go wrong!

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!

Expires: November 30, 2009

Thanks, Terri!

 

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.
