Giveaway $25 Gift Certificate for Apericots Organic Children's Clothing


GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED --- WINNER AT THIS LINK: WINNER OF APERICOTS GIFT CERTIFICATE


I am very excited to have the opportunity to offer a SWEET giveaway to one of my readers thanks to the wonderful people at Apericots! Apericots is an awesome online children's store that specializes in high quality, customizable, eco-friendly/organic products. Besides the total win-win of having baby clothes made out of 100% organic materials...I just love the fact that you can totally customize the baby clothes. Soooo cute! The possibilities really are endless, and the prices...VERY reasonable.



Here is a little detail directly from their website:

Your Baby. Your Way.

Go green while wearing pomegranate! Apericots lets you customize your organic baby clothes or purchase predesigned children's clothing all while helping to take care of Mother Earth. We use the latest technology and highest quality products to produce 100% organic clothing for your children. Every design is printed with eco-friendly, water-based ink because we care about the planet and the kids that play on it. The only thing more natural for your child is the skin they were born with. Choose from any of our earth-lovin’ products in a variety of colors predesigned by us or create your own using our custom apparel design tool. Your Baby, Your Way.

Apericots From One Parent to Another

Apericots was founded by a group of parents, creative minds and friends that united to form an environmentally conscious and unique alternative to all the lame baby clothes out there. We love our babies, we love our planet and we love our products! We know you will too!






Sounds pretty great, doesn't it? Parents who want the environmentally best for their babies and yours too. I had a lot of fun looking about, and even trying out the customization. Here is a little bit from Apericots that struck me as baby perfect!

Here are a few things that I thought were pretty spectacular:



This adorable 100% Organic Bubble Tree long sleeved shirt looks so cute in cotton candy, but it also comes in Sunshine, Iceyberg, Natural, and Saltine! I think with the cooler weather this is just perfect!



This absolutely perfect lil thermal with the holiday perfect Snowflake design is adorable here in Tree Bark, but equally darling in Pea Soup, Iceyberg, Natural, Cotton Candy and Saltine.

They also have fabulous little bum covers! Bum covers? Okay, actually the cutest customizable cloth diapers from bumGenius. And Apericots has adorable little designs or you can customize them. I am just amazed at how awesome these diapers are and really how safe. No worries about pins, no worries about covers, and they hold 12 ounces of fluid! Check it out:

Quick Overview (from their website)

Cloth diapering has never been so easy!



All-In-One cloth diapers by bumGenius offer an industry first - tabs that stretch for a perfect fit. Until now, cloth diapering involved folding, scary pins, an extra cover, or a dizzying array of snaps.

But don't worry, now we have stretchy tabs combined with hook and loop fasteners that make cloth diapering as easy as using disposables. The simple one-step system of our all-in-ones is an ideal solution for families with a child in day-care or family members resistant to cloth diapers! It really is as easy to use as a disposable diaper. Put it on your baby, wash, dry and re-use. No extra steps. No folding. No stuffing. No cover required.

No pinning! NO folding! NO COVER!!!! How awesome is this? And you can customize them yourself, use Apericots adorable predesigned diapers, or got for the simple colors. Really these are just awesome. I have found that the initial investment for good cloth diapers is well worth the benefit to your baby, the environment, and in the long run...your wallet.

At this time, Apericots is having a 25% off sale on their online store! This is a perfect opportunity to pick something up for a significant savings! There is also FREE shipping on orders totally $50 or more!

A big "THANK YOU" to Eric from Apericots who was kind enough to send us a super soft short sleeve t-shirt with their cute little astronaut design in Disco Purple to review. Too cute! Let me tell you, the color is vivid and the shirt is snuggly soft. Even after washing, it was too beautiful!

Apericots has many other fabulous items like bibs, hats, short sleeve t-shirts, and onesies. I could go on and on, but how about getting to the contest.

One lucky reader is going to win a $25 gift certificate to Apericots online store!

Choose organic cotton because conventional cotton farming takes an enormous toll on the air, water, soil and people who live in cotton growing areas. In the United States, 1/3 Pound of agricultural chemicals are typically used in the production of a single cotton T-shirt.
