Holiday Gift Giveaway – Card Cubby

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…..the holidays are upon us!

And, why not join in the fun and add to the ‘buzz’ and excitement of the holidays, by offering a few gift giveaways! 

I am very excited about this one….the Card Cubby!

Card Cubby

I raved about this product last year during the holidays, as well as throughout the year. I LOVE it! I have the card cubby and the coupon cubby. Both, are awesome sources of organization for me. Awesome! And, if you know me, you would know this is important! Have you seen my purse? 

You know how every retailer offers ‘reward cards’, ‘loyalty cards’ or whatever they want to call them these days? And, where do you keep them all? I had them shoved in every pocket in my wallet and purse. And, when it came time to find the one I was looking for, do you think I could find it? No! 

Card Cubby

With the Card Cubby, I have all of my ‘loyalty’ and ‘reward’ cards (or whatever you want to call them) in one place. Now, when I go into my purse, I know exactly where to find them. Both, the card and coupon cubby, have been lifesavers over the last few weeks as I try to shop for the holidays. 

There are a wide variety of colors and styles, but, I have to admit, I’m loving the Really Red Croc style. The bright red is easy to see in the car and/or in my purse. As well as, it is a good reminder to live a heart healthy lifestyle. Red is the color of the American Heart Association and the Go Red for Women campaign. (I have a special place in MY heart for his cause.)

So, don’t you want to run out and get one (or two) for yourself? Well, guess what! YOU have the opportunity to enter and win a Really Red Croc Card Cubby too! It’s a perfect gift idea. And, I didn’t say WHO the gift would be for…give to a loved one or keep for yourself! (I won’t tell!) 

The giveaway runs from December 12 – December 17, 2012.

It’s May! End of School – Means Graduation! (Graduation Gift Ideas – GDGC Product List)

It’s May!! It always seems to be one of the busiest times of year for everyone…mainly, because school is ending! And, with that, means…Graduations!

Take a peek at the Graduation Gift ideas that I showcased on Great Day Green Country today….

Perfect for the new grad that wants to stand out in a crowd!

 ImAnerdClothing is a fun and quirky Tshirt company spearheaded by, none other than, a NERD! His name is Anthony and he is determined and motivated to give ‘nerds’ a good name! And, I thought these Tshirts were a fun gift for any graduate – girl or guy.

Gift Baskets – On The Corner

 I stole one of these gift ‘basket’ ideas from my Mom. She is a teacher and would always put together a ‘school supply’ storage box for her graduating students. It was always filled FULL with all kinds of school supply ‘randomness’ that you may not think you need…until…you need it!

But, I’m a big fan of gift baskets in general! Who doesn’t love a gift with lots of little gifts inside. And, you can customize them by a theme and/or favorite college, as I did with these. The OSU gift basket was catered more towards a girl with OSU sunglasses, earrings, notepad, watch and more. While, the OU gift basket was catered more towards the guy as I used a microwave popcorn tub for the basket and filled it with OU plastic cups, playing cards, and coasters. Customize it to fit graduate receiving the gift basket!

School Bags - On The Corner

 (My apologies – no idea why this picture turned out cloudy!)

What new graduate doesn’t need a new school bag? LOTS of books! Heavy books…all around campus! Enough said! Customize it to the school of their choice.

‘Roommate Refreshers’ – On The Corner

 And, last but not least, ‘roommate refreshers’. I couldn’t resist these as your ‘graduate gag gift’. Let’s have some fun with the reality that they will have to share their dorm with a roommate. And, a dorm room doesn’t always smell ‘fresh’…if you know what I mean. So, why not give them poo-pourri or trap-a-crap bathroom air freshener. I had to show these on the segment – they just cracked me up! And, for a more ‘serious’, ‘less humorous’ approach to refreshing a room, why not use the candle warmer lamp. It’s perfect for avoiding the ‘open flame’ restrictions.

Congratulations to ALL the new graduates! The best is yet to come…..
