CafePress Beach Tote Bag and Ceramic Travel Mug Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #137!


School is almost out, how are you planning on spending your summer? I know that we will be spending a lot of time at the local lake and water fountains to try to stay cool. One of the things I look for every summer is nice large beach totes that will keep everything we need in one place. Recently, I was contacted by CafePress to do a review and host a giveaway. I was excited to be given the chance to review their beach tote. CafePress is the source for custom and personalized gifts – any topic for anyone! While I could have personalized my tote, I decided to pick from one of their designs instead.



I love sushi, so as soon as I saw the bento design beach tote, I knew I had to have it. The bag is large with a lot of storage space for our towels, bathsuits and change of clothes. Just what we needed to kick start this fun summer!



In addition to the beach tote, I also received a Wo Ai Bao Zi Ceramic Mug. I love that CafePress offers products with Asian design and Chinese writings on them. In case you are wondering, it says, " I love buns" on it. And I do love them, they are very yummy!


CafePress offers a lot of great designs you can choose from. You can also personalized your products there. For unique and fun gifts, don't forget to head over there.

Many thanks to Allison. She has generously offered a beach tote as well as a ceramic mug as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please). The total retail price of these prizes is $47.
