$28 custom boxers & coordinating travel mug for Father’s Day June 1, 2010

Here’s a great, one-of-a-kind Father’s Day gift for Dad, Grandpa, and those other special guys in your life! Really, who needs another tie? And I’m a HUGE fan of gifts people can really use. If you have to dust it, no thanks!

For just $28, he’ll get a set of custom boxers with a coordinating travel coffee mug — personalized any way you’d like! The photo I included in this post shows the #1 Dad set, but Collections by Tara Nicole offers 4 different boxer choices and 18 print choices for mug inserts (plus tons of plain colors). Specify what you’d like embroidered — his name, monogram, or a short saying — and you’ll create a gift he’ll love!

When you submit your order, please let her know you heard this deal from Being Resourceful!

Expires: Order ASAP to ensure delivery before Father’s Day (June 20th)!


$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!
