Baby Got Swag, and You Can Too! A Paper Culture Giveaway!

Leaving the BlogHer Conference, my family performed a sleight of hand that would have made Houdini proud. The bags and boxes of swag that filled my Suburban to capacity emptied out in a blazingly fast pouf.

My teen took the beauty and fashion items, my son the iTunes card, and both decimated the bags of candies and snacks. But neither was interested in the baby swag; no, that was snagged by their cousin, a blue-eyed, blond cherub who glommed onto a wooly lamb from the Infantino Comforting Play Collection.


Surprised that my niece, a toddler, was attracted to the baby toys, my sister assured me that she loves these, as she is comforted every night by one of the lullaby crib toys. Even more surprising was the eagerness with which my sister greeted other items in the gift basket.

I have (gratefully!) forgotten what a chore it is to change diapers, and how happy I would have been to find anything that made the process easier. But, I was reminded when my sister grabbed the Infantino Savvy Bag Changing Clutch with its eye-catching print and easy to carry and pack design (see details and photos here.) She admired the design,

with space for carrying wipes and cream inside, and the generously proportioned changing pad that’s big enough for older children.

So much has changed since my children were babies; now, everything from toys to the most mundane items have undergone style makeovers. One trend that I love is the option to customize.


At Paper Culture, you can use your own photos to create unique invitations, stationary, or even wall art. Cards are printed on gorgeous, heavy stock that is 100% Post-Consumer Recycled. It looks good and is good too.

And now, Dear Reader, so that you don’t feel left out of all this swag excitement, I have a $50.00 Gift Voucher from Paper Culture to give away.
