The Mother’s Day Giveaway!

in Giveaways

This contest is now closed.

This is a giveaway for all of those who know moms or babies (or who are moms or babies), and it’s chockful of wonderful stuff, worth up to $171.50! And unlike my last giveaway, where each item was given away to a different winner, this time one lucky winner will get it all!

I’ve chosen some fantastic treats for moms and kids- I know you’re going to love them as much as I do. Instructions on how to enter are below (and they’re easy, too), but I urge you to visit each and every one of these shops, because the products they’ve generously agreed to donate to one lucky Almost Frugal reader are only the tip of the iceburg- there’s a lot more where they came from!

wallet-in-redOur first giveaway item is from the eBillme Debt Free Mall, who has partnered with CSN Stores to give Mom (and Almost Frugal readers) something special- a choice of up to two items, for a total value of $100, from this special Mother’s Day gift page with the Top 50 Gifts for Mom. Gifts are divided into a Top 10 category, or four other categories: New Moms, Traditional, Trendy, and gifts Every Mom will love.

laptop-sleeveI have to tell you, I’ve looked at their selection a lot, and have had a hard time choosing what I would pick myself, were I to be eligible (which I’m not!). There are a lot of great gifts, from halo sleep sacks to stroller organizers to funky wall mirrors and ice-cream makers. However, as I start down a new professional path, I think I would choose the laptop sleeve and the wallet, both pictured here. What would you choose?

merit-marketOur next item comes from Etsy shop Merit Market, and it’s a market tote. At least she markets it as a market tote, I would use it as an everyday bag, perfect for carrying all of the day’s essentials. Not only that, it would be perfect for carrying all your stuff from this giveaway!

These totes sell for $18, and are completely handmade. The winner gets to choose the design they prefer, so make sure to visit her shop to see what’s in stock! She also has aprons, coasters and ingenious prop and shoot camera sets.oreo-truffles

We’ve talked practical, now let’s talk essential. Or luxury- you choose the adjective, but I vote that these delicious orange-twist oreo truffles from SugarSmitten‘s shop are a necessity. SugarSmitten is offering the winner $15 in store credit, and you can choose anything you like… fudge, caramels, bonbons and more… yum!

leggingsLeggings for babies, or a cloth diaper of your choice: you decide! That’s what the next sponsor, Snugs Boutique, is letting you do. They sell their own brand of cloth pocket diapers (which in my opinion are the easiest to use, as they go on like a disposable and dry very quickly) and leggings for babies, which I think are one of the cutest baby trends of the past few years. While I’ve shown my favorite pattern of leggings (I’m crazy about stripes on little girls!), the winner is free to choose their preferred pattern.

pacifier-strapAnother adorable baby item is this pacifier and toy strap from OhSewCuteDesigns, another Etsy shop. Even if your baby doesn’t use pacifiers, these are great for keeping favorite toys attached- we used this idea for all three of our kids, although we just tied the toys on with a string- not nearly as cute! Again, it’s winner’s choice as to the design, and make sure to check out her shop to sneak a peek at all the other cute things she makes and sells.

sockmonkeyI couldn’t resist the sockmonkey design on this little bag from PickleThings so I was delighted that she agreed to donate a bag (again, winner’s choice as to the design). And she has felt food as well- tea bags! potatoes and asparagus! PB&J sandwiches! Ravioli in sauce! Really, you have to see it to believe how cute they are.

And, if you’re not  into sockmonkeys, there are a lot of other designs: big dots, flowers, asymetrical dots and so on.

crayonOur final giveaway comes from Quiltdream, another Etsy shop. Although I covet her quilts, that’s not what she’s giving away (although, hey, a girl can dream, right?). Instead she’s offering the winner a minicrayon roll. I love these things- they’re small enough to keep one tucked in your bag to distract whiny toddlers, or to stash them in the car (but maybe not in summer!) for long car rides. The crayon rolls hold six crayons, and not only that, the fabric is sure to please your favorite artist: Elmo, Thomas or Cookie Monster, for example.

So you see what I mean when I say how excited I am about this giveaway- I think there is a lot of great stuff here!

Here’s how to enter (and, as promised, it’s really easy). You get one entry for each of these options, for a total of 10 entries:

  • Leave a comment on this post, saying what favorite Mother’s Day gift was, that you have either given or received.
  • Post about this giveaway on your own blog, linking back to this post. (No need to let me know you did so, the blog will capture it automatically.)
  • Tweet about this giveaway, mentioning the post, and @AlmostFrugal.
  • Visit one of the shops mentioned, then come back and leave a comment about your favorite item in that shop. You can do this for each of the seven shops listed.

Now, I know that you’re all busy people, but I’d really appreciate it if you could take a minute to visit each of the sponsor sites- it would mean a lot to each of us.

The contest begins on May 3, 2009 at 12 noon GMT, and finishes on May 11, 2009 at 12 noon GMT. It is only open to people who can give a US or Canadian address, and I reserve the right to disqualify people. Good luck!

Oh wow, what a fantastic giveaway! Had a quick look at all the shops and each one of them is fantastic. Had to visit SugarSmitten’s shop first, though, as I’m in dire need of a chocolate fix. But I was so stunned by the choice that I have to say: I’d just take the whole lot!

And from the first shop I’d definitely go with your choice, that wallet is lovely and the laptop sleeve is such a cool colour.

The crayon rolls are great, too, my favourite design would have to be the Elmo & Cookie Monster one. Or maybe the Bees & Flowers? Gah! Again, too many great options to choose from.

And the coin purses from PickleThings? My, I can’t choose, they’re all gorgeous, but I’m tending towards a ‘dotty’ design. I wonder why…. ;-)

And my best mother’s day gift? I used to give my Mom a bunch of flowers every year when I was little. I’d sneak out early that morning and go around the fields around our house and find the nicest flowers for her. It always felt really special to me (and I hope to my Mom, too) and I thought she never noticed when I crept quietly out of the house. Of course she did.

My favorite Mother’s day gift from my husband and then infant son was a small house plant. The son is now 7 and the house plant has been transferred into 2 different pots and soon will be to be moved again! To me its the gift I can always look at to remember a wonderful day and its seems to be growing as fast as my son :)

3 Allison May 3, 2009

When I was a kid, I saved up money to buy my mom an cream-colored angora sweater shell from the one clothing boutique in our small town. I thought it was the greatest present ever. It really wasn’t her style but I had this idea of her wearing it… I don’t think she actually did wear it more than a couple of times!

My favorite item at Merit Market is the shopping totes: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24403655.

And I know my daughter would looooove the felt sandwiches at Pickle Things: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23668482

And since she’s going to need to upgrade to a big girl bed soon, this quilt would be so nice: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20601327

5 Nancy May 3, 2009

The favorite gift I have received as a mother is one I continue to receive each year. My husband and daughters take me to our local nursery/greenhouse and I select plants for potting. Once purchased we come home and put them in pots and they find a home on our front porch and our backdeck. They last all summer and I think of the day that we spent together each time I see them.

Now, I’m going to have to go check out the sites. Looks like there’s a lot of fabulous choices.

What a fantastic giveaway!! My son is only 15 months old, so I've only had one Mother's Day so far, but last year he and Daddy gave me the Joy of Cooking and I LOVE it! I use it all the time.

<abbr>Courtney´s last blog post..Your 15 minutes starts now</abbr>

7 Sheila May 3, 2009

My favorite gift to give is this year's gift to both my mother and mother-in-law: mugs from Snapfish with a collage of the grandchildren's pictures on them. I hope they like them!

8 Teresa May 3, 2009

My favorite mother's day gift I was ever given was a lovely bouquet of flowers, cards from my kids and an afternoon to myself when my honey took all the kids to the park. Simple, lovely, kind and thoughtful.

9 Therese May 3, 2009

One year my daughters made me a video of them singing a song. That was my favorite :)

10 Laura May 3, 2009

My favorite gift given was the orchid I picked out for my mom to wear to church. It made her feel special and was such a rare treat for her.

My favorite gift received is the handprint mail sorter my daughter made in preschool. Her hands were traced on cardboard, and she painted and glittered them (for what preschool project would be complete without glitter?). They sit folded on my bulletin board, above where I work.

11 Kelly May 3, 2009

Just to clarify- the quilts aren't being given away, as lovely as they are!

12 Julia May 3, 2009

what great stuff! my favorite mother's day gift so far has to be what my husband and sons gave me last year–i desperately needed a new bible, and my husband bought me one, had "mommy" put on the front of it, and had the boys "write" me notes on the inside (they were 3 and 1 at the time). makes me smile every time i use it.

14 Sarah W May 4, 2009

I’ve only had one mother’s day as a mom…my son was born just a few weeks before mother’s day last year and my hubby got me a bracelet for mother’s day! It was my favorite color and perfect and I wear it all the time!
This is an awesome giveaway!!!

15 Christy Ross May 4, 2009

for my first mother's day two years ago, my husband got me a blow up wading pool that was just big enough for a float to in. he had it filled up (with hot water from the house). and had my iPod outside already playing my "beach" playlist. I slathered up in sunscreen and laid on my float in that pool for hours while he did laundry and played with our daughter. it was heaven!

16 Maggie May 4, 2009

What an awesome giveaway! The best Mother's Day gift I've given was a handmade photo album I gave my mom. My husband got me an iced tea maker last year. It's not sexy, but I use it almost every day.

<abbr>Maggie´s last blog post..I did it!</abbr>

17 Maggie May 4, 2009

On the CSN stores website, I love the Sherpani – Sport Oli Urban Travel Backpack in Palm.

My favorite Mother’s day gift is getting my mom a lilac bush each year. It’s great to see them all growing year after year. They are her favorite.

I have tweeted about your giveaway!

My favorite from ebillme is that yellow kettle (lovely!)

From Merit Market I really like the white cotton duck crafting apron (I am always misplacing things).

From Sugarsmitten I think turtle oreo truffles, tough decision though!

From Snugs boutique the cloth diapers. I do wish I used them!

From Ohsewcute designs the Cute Construction and Dots Boutique Style Burp Cloth Set

From Pickle Things the sock monkey coin/camera purse, I too am a sucker for sock monkeys!

From Quiltdream her Hand Quilted Red and Ivory Quilt. Such incredible workmanship & detail in her hand quilting ~ WOW!

Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

20 Tammy May 4, 2009

The Picklethings store was nice and the spaghetti and sandwiches were too cute. Merit Market also had a clever camera point and shoot stand. Great ideas for Mother’s Day or anytime gifts. Although, my daughter (born 2 days after Mother’s Day nearly 2 years ago) would disagree and find Quiltdream the best shop because it has Elmo blankets etc. My favorite Mother’s Day gift was a book about a little girl growing up called “Someday” by a local author that my husband gave me when I was due with her.

21 Heather May 4, 2009

My favorite Mother's Day gift was a plastic toy elephant that my son picked out for me when he was three years old. It sits on my kitchen windowsill, and I love it still!

22 Candice May 4, 2009

My oldest is only three, so we haven’t had too many Mother’s Days yet. But every year my mom always sends me flowers – I think it’s so thoughtful of her to remember me, when it should be the other way around! I think she’s just really happy I finally gave her grandkids. LOL

I love the items you are giving away! So cute and I could definitely use them. :) We are constantly growing out of cloth diapers, and my oldest would love a crayon roll to keep him occupied in church!

Candice´s last blog post..Can you believe it’s already May?

23 Jena May 4, 2009

My favorite item at the merit market are the market bags. They are so cute! I would use them all the time!

24 Jena May 4, 2009

At Oh So Cute Designs i like the paci holders. i had never thought of using the paci holders as a toy holder!

25 Candice May 4, 2009

I definitely need a new teakettle, and yellow is one of my favorite colors for kitchens. Why cook in someplace that doesn't inspire you to use bright, healthy foods, too? :)

<abbr>Candice´s last blog post..Can you believe it’s already May?</abbr>

26 Jena May 4, 2009

I love giving Grandmother shirts to my mom and my mother-in-law. They think they are pretty cool. That is how we told my mother-in-law I was pregnant with my 1st!

I typically don't get mother's day presents.

We have been dedicating our children on Mother's day when they are babies (this is the 3rd year of doing that)…so that is my special present.

27 Lisa C May 4, 2009

My favorite Mother’s Day gift ever was a poem with my son’s handprint in paint. It was his first hand-made gift for me, from preschool. I cried when he gave it to me. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway.

28 Jena May 4, 2009

From Pickle Things I like the Blue Queen Anne's Lace Coin Purse Camera Case it is so cute!

29 Jena May 4, 2009

From quilt dreams i love the Children's Coloring and Crayon Tote Bag – Robots and Aliens. The tote bags are a cool idea to have the crayons with it! LOVE THEM!

30 Randy Bailey May 4, 2009

The best mothers day gift I got was when my 2 adult children had there picture made together and surprised me with it on mothers day. A picture is always the best gift ever.

31 Candice May 4, 2009

Ack! It removed my comment when I tried to post it (I guess when I linked to my favorites, it thought it was spam. :) )

My son would love QuiltDream's train crayon roll with the velcr0 – he loves all things trains, and he'd probably enjoy bringing it to church with us!

I just can't believe PickleThings's felt foods! They look so real! I especially like the vegetables – they actually look edible. One thing I especially appreciated about PickleThings's store is that they use a lot of repurposed materials.

OhSewCute has the perfect pacifier clip for me: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=2… It fits a soothie, which is what my 8 month old son uses (and I didn't think a clip was possible for a soothie!) plus it's my favorite color combo – blue and chocolate brown. Hard to find in a boyish print, surprisingly enough.

I'd have to try Snugs' boutique's Bamboo diaper – I make my own at home when I have time, and I love to use bamboo. But my youngest is growing so fast, I only get diapers made and he's about grown out of them! The medium-large would be perfect since he's at the bottom of that weight spectrum.

Mmm…vanilla caramels: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=2…. I had to stop looking at this store. Now I want chocolate. And there isn't any here. :(

I'd have to get MeritMarket's market tote in blue and olive – It's too pretty! I use my reusable (and unattractive) Walmart bags all the time, and I love to carry my knitting in something nice and big like this!

32 One Frugal Girl May 4, 2009

My grandfather was an amateur photographer and my grandmother had thousands of his slides in old boxes. One year I spent weeks converting the slides into digital images. After processing a thousand or so I loaded them onto a digital picture frame for my grandmother. Suddenly all of my grandfather's images came back to life. She says it is the best gift she has ever been given. That picture frame has been running for years, she refuses to turn it off and when she can't sleep at night she sits in front of it and watches the images of her husband, children and grandchildren. I am so happy to have given her something that makes her so happy!

I love the market tote. I am giving my mom and mother-in-law reusable shopping bags for mother's day this year and the one you are giving away from one is especially pretty.

All of my daughter’s crafts are the BEST gifts. ((Thanks to all the teachers who take the time and spend the extra $$ on craft supplies for Mother’s Day projects.))

As for my hubby — well, he could kick it up a notch.
We have always wanted a nice globe (enough of the Dollar store junky ones) – so I would love this.

My favorite Mother’s day gifts are the ones that my 4 year old works on at school. They always come up with clever homemade items. I also love the cuddles, kisses, and I love you’s that I hear from the 4 yo and the 2yo (the baby can’t talk but he loves me with smiles and coos!).
At OhSewCute designs my fav is the Binky holders!

90 Kimberly May 4, 2009

My favorite Mother’s Day gift was the year my daughter drew a portrait of me, all crooked and with huge teeth. I love it and it’s still on my fridge. I want to make it into an embroidered pillow so I can always keep it!

From Sugar Smitten, the Devil's Bon Bons and the Devil's Brownies are battling for me. Although the sea salt caramels might make a last minute run.

107 Kimberly May 4, 2009

From Quilt Dream, the pink cookie monster fabric for sure. She *does* have great quilts – that pink and white quilt is exactly, exactly what I have been wanting to find to buy. I wish it was in the budget right now!!

108 Jacqueline in Atlanta May 4, 2009

When my kids were really little, they made breakfast and brought it to me in bed on year. It was oh, so sweet. When I finally got up, a couple of hours later, the kitchen was oh, such a nightmare! But the proud expressions on their faces when they brought in the tray was priceless!

Thanks for having the giveaway!

109 oona b May 4, 2009

Great stuff Kelly..I haven't received any mothers day gift yet, as I am not a mother..but my mother's favorite gift was a book I gave her, it meant a lot to her as the story in the book was pretty much her own story…

We gave my mom a family picture with all her grandkids, not an easy feat considering there are over 15 grandchildren under 13!

119 Dana May 5, 2009

My favorite Mothers Day gift was given to me by my daughter a few years ago. She was about 13 years old. She collected a few dozen photos and used them to make an incredible collage on a large piece of thick posterboard. She further decorated it with funny little sayings and a sweet poem. This may not sound like a big deal, but the photos she chose were incredible- I don’t even remember some of them being taken! She even found a rare photo of me when I was pregnant with her. It’s something I’ll always have and it was from the heart.

120 Allison May 5, 2009

Love the little bags…market totes, sock monkey design, etc. I can't get enough of little places to put all of our little goodies. Looking forward to winning them all! :) My favorite mother's day gift…a day with my mother and my new daughter…three generations of wonderful women. Keep up the good work.

121 Aura May 5, 2009

I really like quiltdreams crayon and color tote bag. My son would love the thomas one.

122 Michelle May 5, 2009

What an awesome load of loot! My best mother’s day present was from my oldest son. He knows I love pigs so he made me the cutest ceramic pig in art class. He’s 26 years old now but I still have that little pig sitting on my desk.

My grandparents lived in their home until well into their 80′s and had a hard time getting their otherwise low-maintenance yard “in shape” after a long winter. The whole family–kids, grandkids and great-grandkids–used to descend on their house every year between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to mow, edge, plant, mulch, clean gutters, make up planters–the whole nine yards. We got a ton of satisfaction out of working together as a family, and the grandparents were able to accept the help with pride because it was a gift. That was the best gift ever, for everyone involved!

136 Jennifer May 5, 2009

My favorite Mother's gift I have give is a mustard seed necklace to my mother.

147 Kay May 5, 2009

I have to say my favorite Mother’s Day gift was last year, from my then 13yo son. He bought a used, broken iPod from a kid in school, then conspired with my hubby, ordered the replacement parts, and fixed it himself, presenting me with a like new, in perfect working order 80gig iPod on Mother’s Day.
The amount of thought and preparation that went into that gift shocked me… he’s a teenage boy!!!

The best gift I have ever given to my mother was 10 years ago when I was 11, I went to the tulip festival in Ottawa and I painted on a plaster tulip and brought it home for her when all the other kids were doing it for themselves. My mother really loves the tulip and based her decorations in our kitchen around it!

157 Angela J May 5, 2009

As always, beautiful items, each and every one!
I can’t wait to look at the sites- I’ll check back once I have.
My favorite Mother’s day was last year- the second one as a mom. I made a champagne breakfast for my family (and the inlaws). Then, we all went to the mall, and I had a mani pedi with my MIL (as a gift to both of us.) Then we came home, and I took a nap with my son in may arms.
It was a near perfect day. I wish I could replicate it exactly on Sunday…

My mother has been gone so long, it’s hard to remember any gift I gave her. I’m sure anything I made for her myself was her favorite.

165 Anne T. May 6, 2009

My favourite Mother’s Day gift ever, was a card that my daughter’s made for me when I was quite ill. It had a picture of each of them and they had written their own message to me.

What a great prize!

My favourite mother’s day gift I ever gave was when I was young (around 8 or so). I had heard from my friends that they make their mother’s breakfast for mother’s day and I thought I would do the same. Having never cooked before and not knowing that there were adults helping my friends I tried making it myself. I still remember my mother’s brave face as she took a bite knowing how awful it would taste. As a great mom, she of course, faked her excitement and I was delighted.

175 Jennifer Woosley May 6, 2009

My favorite mothers day gift was when my kids and husband made me breakfast in bed. It was so nice to be pampered.

I got my mom a charm bracelet

196 Frugal Babe May 7, 2009

What an awesome giveaway! I love the one size pocket diapers from Snugs. I'm all about pocket diapers these days – they dry so much faster, and are easy to make more absorbent for night time.

I also love the stuff on the CNS site. I think I'd go with the travel baby seat (we don't have a portable high chair – we just wing it when we go somewhere with him) or the tea kettle.

On Pickle Things, I love the bibs. Our little guy is still wearing his first bibs, and he's gotten really good at yanking them off, sometimes as soon as we put them on him.

At a Quilt Dream, I really like the blue sunflower tote bag. I love tote bags, and this one is beautiful.

Merit Market has the best coasters. Love the ones with leaves on them. Very earthy and natural looking.

I made my mom a scrapbook (full size, 12 by 12) for mothers day a few years ago. It took me more than a month to make, but it turned out great. She loves it, which makes it a perfect present.

197 Brad May 7, 2009

The best gift is time together.

198 Jill Nelson May 7, 2009

I checked out the sites. They are all really great. Love the chocolate. They look really yummy.

I also like the crayon rolls on Quiltdreams. I thought those would be handy to take in the car. I also like the idea of getting pretty tote bags to put your items in when shopping instead of using plastic bags. Great colours.

204 Laura Earnest May 8, 2009

CSN: Loved the FLW clock…our whole house is done Arts and Crafts, and it really stood out. Also love the color of the iris mug.

Merit Market: Love the tote! It’s so cute I don’t think I could put bananas in it….

206 Laura Earnest May 8, 2009

Sugarsmitten: I have decided I love any candy that has the possibility of pulling out a filling. The caramel marshmallow fudge looks dreamy…

207 Laura Earnest May 8, 2009

OhSewCute: I have to wonder if the pacifier strap could keep my keys from sinking to the bottom of my purse…

Quiltdream: All so beautiful! It's hard to pick a favorite.

I think I picked Mom a good gift this year, so far it’s my favorite. I’m giving her a subscription to the weekly newspaper from our little town. She had mentioned that she had let her subscription expire because in her eyes it’s expensive, but she also mentioned that she misses it.

228 Joanne Schultz May 9, 2009

One year I was fortunate enough to have won a mini garden with African Violets and green plants, right before Mother's Day, so I had them send it to my mother who loved it!

You know, I think the BEST Mother's Day Gift has always been when my 3 little ones come to me with something they made, no matter how small or messy, with their big smiles saying, "Happy Mother's Day, Mommy" & give me a big hug & kiss. Nothing beats that!

My most favorite mother’s day gift was a necklace my husband bought me with two little children charms- one for our girl and one for our boy- with their birthstones on them. I love that necklace.

240 Rita S May 10, 2009

Not a mother myself, but I always sent my mother flowers, and sometimes pastel candies that she enjoyed.

241 Aisling May 10, 2009

When my oldest granddaughter was in kindergarten, she brought me a “tree” for Mother’s Day. It was actually a twig with some roots that she had dug up from her own yard. We had a planting ceremony in my back yard and that tree grew straight and tall and beautiful. It’s about 30′ tall now and I enjoy looking at it regularly and appreciate the shade it provides, but I have special thoughts about it on Mother’s Day.

My favourite Mother’s Day gift that I’ve given has been hanging baskets of flowers. My mom liked them so much that my brother and I have gotten her those for several years in a row now – it’s just the right time of year for them, and they’re the kind of thing she wouldn’t buy for herself.

265 Donna Holmberg May 11, 2009

We’ve been having a lot of attitude issues with our 16 year old daughter recently, so my heart melted when she got me a very special Mother’s Day Card and two beautiful Mom-related 3-d shadowbox/message frames for me to put on my wall. At her age, it’s hard to say sorry, so I think these precious items are her way of saying it silently to me… and I love her so much for making the effort, because she shopped and paid for these things all on her own, with no help from Dad.
