Today, October 7th, we are Giving Away... (CLAIMED)

A Car Seat Cozy of the Winners' Choice from Stranded Designs

A chill is in the air.

Have you felt it?

We sure have.

And guess what?

It's only going to get colder.

Therefore, here at Give Away Today we want your little one (or a little one you know) to stay warm and bundled this winter. Whether you are rushing into the grocery store, or the gym, or to playgroup, the Car Seat Cozy from Stranded Designs allows you to cover your baby and keep him or her warm and toasty.


Stranded Designs is located in Canada, where due to frigid winters, bundling up children is essential. The owner of Stranded Designs has this to say of the Car Seat Cozy:

"Having seen a few other 'cozy type' bunting bags on the market, the options for fabric were limited. I quickly realized if I wanted something that reflected my sense of style, I was going to have to create it. So I did! And what a response I had. Strangers would stop me and ask where I had purchased my cozy which led me to open my own shop. I pride myself on hand selecting the most striking fabrics I can find then line them with an array of luxurious minky. I believe that my fabrics are more for the moms than they are for the babies. I want everyone to feel like a 'hot mama' when they're stepping out with their little one....in any season."

Thank you, Stranded Designs, we appreciate you for making such darling products.

Such as these little lovelies:


And these:

Or what about this adorable skirt:

Example: Jane Doe: I was super cold last week at my son's soccer game. When we arrived home I got in the bath and after awhile I thought, "I should probably get out now." After another ten minutes. "Yeah, I really need to get out." Another ten, "Okay, it really is time." But my cold bones just wouldn't allow me to stand up.

The winner of the Car Seat Cozy from Stranded Designs will be announced Thursday, October 8th. Please visit us tomorrow to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaway for the day. Thanks!

I didn't even bring a coat on that trip!! We knocked on doors all day in frigid temperatures, and I'm still surprised that I survived in only paper thin long sleeve t-shirts :)

Brad and Hailey said...

Hailey Allen: a few years ago in college I was part of a black bear diet research team and we were hiking in the snowy mountains in Utah tracking bears. It was my first time using snow shoes and somehow I had gotten two left-footed shoes. I struggled the whole way and on the way back was one of the last people in the group because I was having so many issues. I had somehow stepped off the path and fell into a snow embankment up to my chest. I was stuck and totally embaressed. As the sun started to set and I was getting really cold and panicked I finally started calling for help and I was totally blessed, as I thought I was at the back of the group, and a couple of guys came hiking by and dug me out. I never lived that down!

I didn't realize how cold I was until we started hiking back to the car. I was so cold my legs were stiff and I had a difficult time walking. I thought we were going to freeze to death on the side of the mountain. My husband (boyfriend at the time) wouldn't let me stop and helped me get back to the car.
