On the First Day of Christmas: We Kick off 13 Days of Giveaways

13 Days of Giveaways At Inside Out
Black Friday will be anything but. Today marks day one of the 13 Days of Giveaways here on Inside Out – the 12 Days of Christmas becomes a baker’s dozen. Every business day for the next few weeks, we’ll be putting up one must-have product for someone in your family (yes, even the four-legged friends). And everyday, you’ll have a chance to win – some days MANY of you will win.

Kicking it off? Fill in the Blankie blankets are the kind you save for something (or someone) special. Well made enough to be well loved, the soft fabric centers are surrounded by one-of-a-kind strips where you get to fill in the blanks. Have them embroider the edges with glow-in-the-dark thread or a barn red. Pick a funky font or a classic print. Write a love letter to your little one. Commemorate a birthday, an adoption, a christening. Fill in the Blankie has taken a child’s lovie and made a lifetime keepsake, and they let you direct the process.

It’s the holiday gift that will remain in their cribs, on their laps, under their picnics and follow them on adventures for years to come.

And Fill in the Blankie will be securing your memories in cuddly form. The first winner of the first of Inside Out’s 13 Days of Giveaways will win their own Fill in the Blankie blankie, at a value of $150! To enter, leave a comment with the reason you think your daughter/niece/granddaughter/whoever needs a blankie and tells us what you would say with 200 characters if you had your very own ULTRA personalized blanket from Fill In The Blankie (check their site for inspiration). Get extra entries by grabbing my badge and/or blogging about this contest and all 13 Days of Giveaways (remember to leave the link in comments as well).
Open to U.S. and Canadian residents, the contest will close on December 5, so remember to check back or subscribe at left to be notified right away (and find out what the rest of our 13 days of giveaways have in store). There are just two more days to be entered in the November subscribers giveaway for the Build-a-Bear Friends Fur All Season Nintendo game courtesy of Game Factory Games!

  2. My little man is a blankie monster, he stumbles around with one, and falls asleep as long as one is wrapped around him, so it would be soooo cute for him to have a special one personalized just for him. I would put all his essential facts on it: Name, Birthday, Time he was born, Height, and Weight πŸ™‚

  3. Your button is on my sidebar!

  19. This will go to my grandniece and I’d use the characters to say, “XXX is loved by A, B, C, D, and E.”

If I were to chose a little girl to give this blankie to it would have to be one of my friends 4 little ones who have been through so much and now are being raised by a single again mom who is ill and can’t afford to do for them even the things they need. I think I would have it say “When all else fails we still have love”If this was to be my blankie I would have it say “I am Mommy , I am love, I am here” it is a saying that means something to me and my two boys.

  46. We would do the name after we decide, (its a surprise) and the birthdate, then we would say the name and blessings always as you are a cherished baby we’ve waited a long time hold in our arms.
