I’d like to introduce you to Paisley Gator. I am excited to blog about Paisley Gator because not only is it a local, mom-owned business, but one of the moms is my friend Crissi. The ladies of Paisley Gator are former teachers who started their business out of their homes, like so many moms are doing nowadays, to make a little money, be crafty and have some fun. Loving any and everything monogrammed, Paisley Gator offers tons of monogrammed products for babies, toddlers, kids, teens and moms. And let me tell you, their kids have the cutest monogrammed outfits all of the time — I don’t know where they find the time.
While I wasn’t planning on talking about holiday outfits from Paisley Gator, I would be amiss if I didn’t mention that they have tons of cute designs for the holidays. In fact, when you visit their website, take note of that cute little tushie sporting “K” bloomers on the home page — that’s my K for her first Christmas. (We also had a cute pink/green Christmas tree top last year… which reminds me that I still need to pick something out for this year!)
Back to the main idea here – gift ideas for moms! When Crissi mentioned blogging about the Market Tote, I couldn’t wait. I have actually been eye-balling the Market Tote for a while now, but just never got myself one — until now! Since I normally go with very practical patterns, I chose the “crazy daisy” print for my Market Tote because I wanted something fun and girly, and it so is.
The Market Tote is great for running into the store for a few things or carting all of your gear to watch the kiddos’ practice. It’s big enough to fit a lot of stuff, but surprisingly light weight and comfortable to carry in the crook of your arm even full. (Note – the book in the tote is an 8×8 photobook for size reference.) The hollow frame helps the tote keep it’s shape when it isn’t full, but it folds flat for storage. (I think the designer of this tote must have been a mom too.)
The Market Tote comes in 17 patterns/colors ($30 for solids, $31 for patterns. For something (or someone) smaller, there is the mini Market Tote available in 3 patterns ($22). And if you have messy things to carry, the vinyl totes are also available in 3 patterns ($35). To give the tote the personal touch, Paisley Gator can also monogram your tote (additional charge). PERSONALIZATION IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE!!!!!!!!
One more quick gift idea — Paisley Gator now offers monogrammed jewelry too.
