I don’t know if this happens at your house, but it seems like ALL the parties we get invited to happen in April or October and this time of year I’m always looking for cute party present ideas.
I hate showing up for a party where the kids gets three of the same thing. I like to come up with something you don’t see everyday at every store.
I found a great solution I thought I’d share. I’ve talked about Oopsie Daisy before, but I found a new reason to stop by my favorite children’s boutique.
They have FANTASTIC and very unique birthday party gifts which are very affordable especially if you’re part of Oopsie Daisy’s new Mom’s Club.
There are two levels, Gold and Platinum. I know what you’re thinking…Why would you pay to shop at a store. But once I learned that a membership gets you a 30 or 40 percent discount on every purchase (including their amazing bedroom sets), it sounded pretty good. ( I wish Costco would do that)
I was invited by my friend Rob, who owns the store, to come shop with a complimentary Platinum membership. He is also giving away a Platinum membership to one of my readers. See the end of the post for details on how to enter.
I took my daughters and two of my nieces with me to pick out some presents for up coming parties. I had my eye on unique baby shower gifts. I was as delighted as they were with the treasures we found. I know any of these things would be the “IT” present of the party.
I have loved Oopsie Daisy since the day it opened. I love the light-airy feel of the store. I like shopping local and I love the specialty and hand-made products they carry.
If I had one complaint it would be that like most specialty boutiques, the price-point is sometimes more than I want to pay. But…with a Mom’s Club membership their unique items don’t cost any more than they do at a big-box store.
We had a magical time exploring and testing things in the store. I loved watching the girls browse the books. They spent a long time looking at and reading them to each other. You might notice if you read the last post I wrote that we LOVE Usborne books. They’re already a family treasure. We’ve read and re-read the classic stories dozens of times.
The other favorite item we love is the Calico Critters. Sunny got several sets of these cute little characters for Christmas, along with one of the cute cottages. She spends hours playing with them. Now I can add to her collection at a bargain price.
They have the BEST selection of these dolls anywhere in Salt Lake. With the Mom’s Club discount, they’re an incredible discount! You can’t find them cheaper anywhere else.
Now for the good part. This is your chance to get your own membership compliments of Oopsie Daisy. See the giveaway below. Entering is SUPER EASY.
The winner will be notified via e-mail after next Wednesday. If you can’t wait until then, feel free to stop by Oopsie Daisy on-line or in person to see their super cute things. While you’re there stop by Cafe Bella Rue next door and get something YUMMY to eat! You wont be sorry.
