  • Review & Giveaway: $50 Red Envelope Gift Code

    Father’s Day is coming up, and Red Envelope wants you to know that they have creative gifts for Dad. They have quite a few gifts under $50, and my favorite is the beer holster, which is exactly what it sounds like – a belt with a holster for beer, so that you can keep your hands free and still have your beer close at hand. It made me laugh out loud when I saw it, but then I realized that I actually do know some dads who would probably love this!

    I was given the opportunity to review the car trunk organizer, which is now in the trunk of my car. It seems sturdy and well-made, and I love how well it folds up when not in use. It will be fabulous for corralling smaller items, like books, jackets, and reusable bags. Plus, the cooler is handy for those times when I want to make a quick stop after I’ve gone to the market. I do wish the compartments were a little bigger, but overall, I’m happy to have it.

    WIN IT!
