CLOSED ~ Cafe Press Tote Review and Giveaway!

When I received the opportunity to review a tote bag from Cafe Press, I was thrilled. If you haven't heard of Cafe Press, you are missing out especially if you want to find unique and personalized gifts. They have everything from t-shirts to clothing, mugs, art & posters and much more. Not only do they have designs from shopkeepers all over the world, who sell on Cafe Press, but you can personalize your own items from your own designs. They had so many cute things. As I looked around, I saw so many items not only for gifts but stuff for me. One of my favorites was this cute Alice In Wonderland apron!

I had the opportunity to choose a tote bag to review. I went on the site and checked out some cool designs but, in the end, I decided to make my own. I found the cutest beach tote in fuchsia and that made me think how cute my blog logos would look on it. It was easy to personalize. I choose the tote I wanted and then the site walked me through uploading the pictures. The program allows you to crop or format as needed. It was really easy to do once I decided what images I wanted uploaded.
If you don't like how it looks, you can go back and add another image as well. I found the whole process to be very easy. And once you are done, it shows you exactly how the item will look once you order it. It was easy and painless and once I got my tote, I was so happy.

Just check out my new tote bag. Not only is it cute but it will come in handy when I travel or go to the beach. It is even perfect for work. I cannot wait to take this with me when I got to BlogHer 2010 this year. I will be the envy of all. I mean, how cute is this? I know that I will be back when I need a special and unique gift. I have a friend who is having a baby and Cafe Press would be the perfect place to get a personalized onesie for the new addition.

You really need to take a look around the site beause it has such great items!! And if you want a chance to win a personalized tote, just enter and win. Yes, my friends, the people at Cafe Press were kind enough to offer one of my readers his or her own tote bag! You can choose from the tons of designs already available or make your own like I did. WOO! I know you will love creating a tote as cute as mine although mine will hard to top! You know the drill, my friends. Read the rules and enter!!
