a birthday bottle bag surprise
You know that feeling you get when you’ve bought someone a present but you really want to keep it yourself? That was me at Christmas when I bought a Duo Creative Designs bottle bag for my sister-in-law at a local craft fayre. As I deliberated over which design to choose (it was always going to be the cat but like shoe shopping you have to um and ah over all options before returning to the first pair you saw) I chatted to Tina about where the idea came from for such a fab, practical gift. Zumba class apparently! Turning leftover fabric from Tina’s sewing business into a handy water bottle/gym card/mobile phone carrier.
I made a mental note to ”order bottle bags for 2014 birthdays” then realised E’s birthday is the first on the calendar. Each bottle bag is custom made so having asked Tina to make a personalised crocodile bag I was as excited waiting for it to arrive as E was opening it. Like all toddlers he loves anything he can put things in, especially if it has buttons on. He’s enjoying wearing his bag, taking his bottle in and out and, as I hoped, drinking more water as a result.
Bottle bags make such brilliant gifts and for little ones it’s an extra specially nice touch to have their name added. Duo Creative Designs are extending the bottle bag love to blog readers and offering 10% off orders made by 14th February. Simply message Tina via the FB page and quote ‘nipitinthebud’ (bottle bags are £8.50 + £3 for a name + P&P – free collection from Tewkesbury). And as if that wasn’t generous enough they’re currently hosting a giveaway for a personalised bottle bag on their Facebook page. To enter all you have to do is like the page and leave a comment. Closing date is 9pm tomorrow so head over their now!
10% discount applies to orders for Memo boards as well (prices from £18 depending on design/personalisation). Brilliant eh!
