It's Football Time (almost)!

We're gearing up for football time around here & that means team orders are rolling in. I thought I'd share a cute one that a customer requested recently. This little girl will be ready to tailgate with the best of them!

It's been amazing how popular our koozies have been! We've been selling them as graduation gifts, bridemaids gifts, beach party favors, and for girls' getaways. Here are some of our recent orders. At only $10 each, they dp make fabulous goodies!

Water Bottles

My 2-year-old is just like his Daddy in the fact that he can down any drink in a few seconds flat. He doesn't really eat that much, but he'll go through tons of milk and juice in a day! Whenever we're going to be gone from the house for a little while, I always pack a sippy cup as well as a backup bottle to refill with. That is, until I came across these water bottles! They are short and cute, but they hold 18oz each, so I can just carry one of these instead of 2 different containers. They have a built-in handle, too, so his little hands can easily grasp it. Plus, they're BPA free and made in the USA, so that makes me feel good about carrying it.

They are available in 3 different nozzle, green, and blue, and the polka dots come in a large variety of colors. They can be personalized any way you'd like...with a critter decal, a name, or an initial patch. And they're only $8 each, so they don't break the bank!

Straw Hats

Since I have very fair skin, I have to hide under gobs of sunscreen, big sunglasses, and hats whenever I'm outside for any amount of time in the summer. So I was beyond delighted when I discovered that I could monogram on straw hats! If I'm going to have to cover up, I might as well do it with a monogram, right? Apparently, my customers feel the same way, because these hats have been a huge seller in the few weeks I've had them. So popular, in fact, that I'm now offering navy & brown in addition to the natural straw color. At only $15 each including the monogram, you could easily spring for one in each color....especially if we say it's for health reasons!

The Best Part.....

There are 2 things I adore about my job.  The first thing is getting to know my customers. I love learning a little about them....their kids names, that their husband just graduated pharmacy school, how they just got engaged.  Second, I love hearing back from them after they get their goodies.  It's so nice to hear that the recipient loved their gift, and it's so fun being part of people's celebrations!

I recently "met" Megan from the blog Syle Me Swanky. She found me on etsy, and we started chatting back & forth. She came up with the cutest way to ask her bridesmaids to be in her wedding using my koozies. I was more than happy to help....I mean, who doesn't love a wedding?

Today, she posted all the details, and I'll have to say she really did something special! Go take a look and read all about her while you're there.....she's just the cutest thing ever!

Congrats, Megan! We wish you all the best, and thanks for letting us be part of your big day!
