Essential bags and totes for Summer

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Summer is just around the corner. Spring has allowed us time to wake up from our Winter slumber and now we are running out and about in the terrific Summer weather. With all this gallivanting around, we need stylish yet reliable bags and totes to carry our Summer essentials. Perfect for traveling, the beach and pool, the parks, shopping, sleepover parties, and Camp!

More often than not, Summer means travel. And if you’ll be traveling, you’ll want a Travel Case for your cosmetics and toiletries, as well as a Charger Case for all your digital devices. Yeah, you’re on vacation but there’s no way you’re leaving home without your cellphone and iPad!

I don’t know about you but I can’t find anything in my purse after accruing things throughout the day at the Farmer’s Market, the beach, the malls, the nightclubs…! I mean, where are my keys in this little congested purse?!? Fret no more! The Gift Chick has the perfect and stylish Purse Organizer for you!

Chuck the deuce and spread some peace as you meet and greet friends this Summer. And as you turn away, you’ll have them thinking, “She’s so wonderful. And where did she get that great I am Peace bag?!”

Like me, you’re probably planning on spending your whole Summer relaxing near some form of body of water. Whether you’re headed abroad internationally, having a staycation, going to sleepaway camp, or preparing yourself for going to college — What better way to prepare for the rough waters ahead than with trendy waterproof Cosmetic and Toiletry Cases? There’s a style to fit everyone.

Everyone is out of hibernation and dying to flaunt their cutest accessories. Flash your glam style with down-to-earth “peace” of mind by wearing the Peace Purse on your dainty wrist. Great for a night out salsa dancing in Seville!

Is your style more glam rocker? Then snag the Studded Clutch! I think I’ve actually seen ladies be moved to the front of the lines at nightclubs in NYC for this standout accessory.

What’s a girl to do without her favorite accessories?? Jewelry! You make room in your bag especially to fit these pieces! Pack them nicely and securely in a Tiara Jewelry Case and a Gemvelope.

Worst case scenario on a beautiful and far-away trip would be to lose your personal belongings. SPIbelt keeps your cash, keys, and credit cards securely near you at all times in a fashionable yet inconspicuous way! That way, if you lose your luggage, you’ve got the credit cards to buy more clothes. Don’t tell my husband, but sometimes I tip the airlines to do that on purpose.

Holiday stockings: Just stuff it!

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Don’t forget the little somethings for the Christmas stockings! And hopefully it’s something better than a lump of coal. But stocking gifts don’t have to be expensive either so your wallet will thank you. Just think FUN for the kid in everyone. The Gift Chick offers stocking stuffing tips and a variety of awesome gifts you can find at to continue this fun long-time holiday tradition.

  • Who’s it for? A kid? For Him? For Her? For the grandparents? Remember that with gift-giving “it’s the thought that counts” so think about who you are shopping for and what they might like. Even the smallest gift is increased in value if it’s personal and meaningful to the receiver. Don’t stress for perfection, this is supposed to be fun.
  • Keep it light and FUN. Thank goodness you don’t have to spend a lot on stocking stuffers, because the point is that you’ll be filling the stocking with plenty of fun, little gifts.
    • Toys. The holidays bring out the kid in everyone, so buy something to bring a smile to that “kid”. Plus, toys and games are also a great way to bring friends and family together through play. That’s if you’ve successfully taught the kids how to share.
    • High flying, bouncing Armeez monsters

      Zip-It by Bananagrams

      Buddy Talk made by kids for kids

      Spit! card game

      Are We There Yet? travel game

    • Gadgets, because the “big boys” love to play with the newest tech toys and gadgets.

      iPlunge stand

      iPod block speakers

      U-Lace custom shoelacing system

      Keychain DJ speaker with sounds effects

      Solitaire Chess logic puzzle

    • Hobby Items. Encourage a hobby or initiate one.

      Decorate your own Yo-Yo

      Jets playing cards for the sports collector

    • Jewelry and Personal Items, because the “big girls” love to accessorize with the newest fashions.

      Stay safe with Ila Personal Alarm in Pink Butterfly

      Gemvelopes in Leopard print

      Ice Cream Cone pen and lip gloss

      Peace Sign round compact mirror

      Organize with decorative Happeez Clips

      Peace Soap

  • Food is always a winner. Easy peasy. Throw in chocolates, candy canes, string cheese, little jars of jam…gifts to fill your tummy!
  • And Money is even better. Hey St. Nicholas gave a gold coin as the first stocking stuffer. He knew how to give! But you’ll be fine just tossing in a few coins, dollar bills, or gift cards. At least you’ll have yourself covered if you didn’t heed my previous gift-giving tips and purchase a winning gift.

The Gift Chick has hand-picked great gifts to ensure everyone receives what they wished for a very happy holiday season, hopefully filled with more hues of Merry Red than Envy Green. Shop online at with our holiday promotional code HOLIDAY for additional savings. Right now, check out what we’ve got in store for you with these 10 great gifts for under $20!

  1. Kitchen Folio$20. For the lady of the house, help her to get organized and take control of the paperwork chaos with the MomAgenda Kitchen Folio. Store All Your Important Papers in One Place… in the Heart of Your Home, your kitchen. Feel free to add your own pages. Interchangeable tabs make it easy to categorize by child or by activity. With 48 pages and 24 interchangeable tabs, there’s a place for everything.
  2. Zip-It$15. A new game from the makers of Banagrams. This fun compact, take-anywhere crossword race that can be played by two people in a restaurant, in an airport, on a plane or in an RV — just about anywhere you have a level playing space. Each player receives 12 letter cubes, and the first person to use up his or her cubes by spelling words (with letters on any side of the cube) in a crossword fashion wins a point. The first to 10 points wins the game. Good for players ages 7+.
  3. U-Lace$9. U-Lace’s Custom Lacing System, as see on the Today Show, let’s you trick out your sneakers and show your individual style. U-Laces are engineered to span one set of eyelets each – giving you the power to create an almost infinite combination of colors and configurations. Because they lock in and pop back out easily, you can use them on multiple sneakers and change them out as often as you like: quickly, easily, repeatedly. U-Lace transforms you into a bon-a-fide sneaker designer, where the options are limitless. Go on, grab a few boxes of U-Lace and transform your sneakers into a limited edition of one. Avaiiable in Mutlicolor packs and Solid packs.
  4. Take Charge! Travel Case$20. For the avid traveler on your list, our practical, fashionable battery charger organizer lets you keep each charger in an individual compartment to save you the trouble of de-tangling.  Compartments are conveniently adjustable for all different size chargers.  We travel with so many different electronic battery chargers: cell phone, laptop, portable music device, PDA, camera, and more.  Take Charge™! is the perfect solution for all your charger needs!
  5. Studded Purse$22.50. Appropriate for the ladies who are young and young-at-heart is the nail studded clutch purse from Urban Expressions. Available in both a basic solid black or solid white with silver studs, this trendy clutch has just enough holiday glitz to add glamour to your Little Black (really any color will do) Dress. A chain handle and wristband are included for more versatility.
  6. Mini Golf$10. With this portable nifty golf kit, now you can practice your “mini-golf” skills wherever you go. Ideal for a white wintery afternoon when you’re tired of watching TV — just to stay home, stay warm and enjoy some active entertainment. All you need to putt comes in this designer tin.
  7. Be-Rhymed$15. This is a great social game for any party. Both fun and educational, Be-Rhymed is a fast paced rhyming game that gives players 2 minutes to ACT, DRAW, or SPEAK clues in order to get correct guesses from team mates to rack up points.
  8. Cut the Cheese$20. For the cheese lover, with this set of four brightly-colored knives with labels reading soft, hard, medium and crumbly, there won’t be any confusion when it comes to cutting the cheese.
  9. I am not a paper cup$15. Turn your everyday disposable cup into an eco-friendly, reusable mug. DCI’s double-walled, thermal porcelain cup is ideal for commuting, sporting events, and the office. The flexible silicone lid helps keep beverages hot or cold for longer and helps prevent messy spills. The two layers of porcelain, which are separated by a hollow cavity, act as a perfect insulator for hot and cold beverages and ensure that you won’t burn your fingers. A silicone stopper in the cup’s base prevents water from entering the hollow cavity when washing the mug. Bonus! – This porcelain cup is both microwave and dishwasher safe.
  10. Information Central Mouse Pad$13. For the office worker, get them a mouse pad that will do some work! With our plentiful paper version, you can jot notes and important thoughts in the most convenient spot—right under your hand. Keep track of your busy life, and when you’ve filled a sheet up with all manner of brilliance, tear it off and start over.
