Giveaway: $100 Carter’s Gift Card


I’ve got something fun for you guys today.  Actually, make that three fun things: two giveaways and a coupon. MPMK’s newest sponsor, Carter’s, is giving away a $100 gift card here as well as a $250 gift basket on their facebook page!  To help get the word out, they’ve asked me to pick a few of my favorites from their new Little Layette line, essential items for baby’s first wardrobe.

As someone who no longer has babies in the house (S will be two next month!), getting to ohh and ahh over witty-bitty baby clothes was a treat.  I always loved all the snuggly parts of having babies and the clothes were no exception.  For a baby shower gift that’s sure to please, here are my recommendations:
  1. Cotton Snap Up Sleep and Play – I dressed my kids in nothing but soft sleepers like these for the first three months of their lives.  And doesn’t that happy little crab just make you smile?
  2. Zebra Snuggle Buddy – Each of my kids has a hybrid animal/blanket like this and they both sleep with them every night.  This zebra is a sweet and exotic choice.
  3. Three Piece Turn Me Around Set – Making baby butts even cuter!




We’ll get to the giveaway in a second but first let’s get you your coupon, shall we?  Carter’s Friends and Family Event starts today and only lasts through Monday, June 25th.  Simply find a nearby store, print out the coupon below, and use it for 25% off your entire order.  Not looking to get off the couch?  I totally understand – use online code JUNEDEAL. (please note, to redeem this offer in-store, you must use the official store coupon


a Rafflecopter giveaway 
Now, ready to win a $100 Carter’s giftcard and get some cute and cuddly stuff of your own?  To make things a little more interesting, Carters is hosting a scavenger hunt of sorts.  Just visit Carter’s.com and scope out your favorite baby boy everyday easy set from their Little Layette Line.  Leave a comment with your pick on the widget above to be officially entered.  Bonus entries are available for following MPMK via facebook, twitter, or pinterest.



And while you’re feeling lucky, don’t forget to also enter to win a $250 gift basket of Little Layette essentials by liking Carter’s facebook page too! (On your phone?  Here’s a mobile-friendly link).


Carter’s Disclosure StatementCarter’s partnered with bloggers such as me to help promote little layette.  As part of the program, I received product or gift cards.  Carter’s believes that consumers and bloggers are free to form their own opinions and share them in their own words, and therefore did not tell me what to purchase or what to say about the products I used. Carter’s policies align with WOMMA Ethics Code, FTC guidelines and social media engagement recommendations. The winner of any giveaway in this program will be randomly chosen and gift card fulfillment will be handled by a third party.

I would go with the yellow shirt and pants with the duckies on it (reusable no matter who comes along after!). But I will personally buy older kids clothes – my “babies” are eating up our clothing budget, and they are not done even for summer yet! I hope I win!

Elephant or monkey. Remember those being fun. If I could suggest something to Carters (and any other children’s clothing companies) it would be to sell more items separately. I had to buy sizes that were vastly different (tops & bottoms) and could NEVER buy sets.

Not only is Carter’s amazing for it’s wonderful clothes, they are a compassionate company as well. My best friend lost her husband on 9/11. She was 8 months pregnant at the time. Someone at Carters found out and sent her a newborn care package full of wonderful items for the new baby and also her older child. Included was a heartfet letter from the CEO. For the next few years, she would occasionally get another gift and a note from the company. Carters won my heart right then and there!
