Thirty-One Gifts Large Utility Tote Review & Giveaway – 8/19

by Mama Chocolate on August 6, 2011

When Pam first contacted me about doing this giveaway, I had only heard of Thirty-One Gifts.

I didn’t even know what their name represented, and I had certainly not seen any of their beautiful products!

I was delighted to find out that the “Thirty-One” refers to the Proverbs 31 woman, one of the most admired women of the Bible!

From Cindy Monroe, founder of Thirty-One Gifts:

“The name Thirty-One comes from the verses of Proverbs 31. These words may be thousands of years old, but I am contantly amazed by how today’s modern woman can relate to them. The Proverbs 31 woman is dearly loved and respected by him and her children, yet she is an individual in her own right. She mananges the home and property with kindness and integrity. Her savvy business skills are partly brought about by her desire to serve others, to do good deeds and prosper. I knew women just like this, and I wanted to find a way for every woman to be recongized for wo they are and for their hard work!

“Our mission is a reflection of this philosophy: to celebrate, encourage and reward women by offering quality products and an outstanding opportunity to become successful business owners.

“Our stylish, affordable products are exclusive to Thirty-One. From our signature purses and totes to storage solutions that help organize your life, you’ll find something to fit every personality and situation. Each season, we develop new products built on the idea that our products must be functional AND fashionable (and, of course, make great gifts!)”

Pam sent me a Large Utility Tote to review, and I was more than pleased with it’s quality and cuteness!

The fabric is sturdy and the strap system is extremely durable! I’ve been using it to carry around things…when I can get Katie out of it! She loves to curl up in it and pleads, “Carry me?” Figuring it’d be a good test of it’s durability to haul a 25+lb squirmy child around in it for a while, I indulged her the first time and now she’s figured out that she can get Papa to swing her around in it. Obviously, I don’t think the company recommends using their products to toss your children about, ;-) but if it can hold up to that it can take anything you can give it!

One of my favorite features is their stylish personalization!  How cool is it to have a pretty, durable bag that’s truly your’s? This option really makes Thirty-One a great choice for gifts!

Visit Thirty-One Gifts to see the beautiful array of purses, totes, and organizational products! Enjoy 15% off everything in the catalog through August! (personalization not included: add personalization for only $7!)

Pam is giving away another Large Utility Tote to one lucky Mama Chocolate reader in your choice of print from the Fall catalog plus your own personalization!

The only thing I’ve ever really had jump out at me were the utility totes. I’d love one for hauling around baby boy’s toys and diapers from home to grandpa’s house.
