It's us, on our toy bag! Bags of Love - Review & Giveaway! CLOSED

Since Carina was born, I've been a bit of a delinquent when it comes to getting photos printed or framed and hung on the wall. I guess there's really no excuse other than pure laziness on my part, which is why I jumped at the chance to personalize and customize a photo gift from Bags of Love.

More about Bags of Love:

Their online design tools have been developed to be user friendly and compatible with your very own digital photographs, uploaded from your computer or Facebook account.

We chose the Laundry/Toy bag because of its versatility. Every now and then we need an extra hamper to truck our 5+ loads of laundry down to the basement, while at other times, we need something to contain the baby toy explosion in our home. The folks at Bags of Love were super helpful and patient as I took forever my time making sure the photo layout was just perfect. I chose 10 of my favorite pictures from the last year. You might recognize some of them!

Again, I must be the most hormonal pregnant person ever, because as soon as I opened it I started tearing up. The photos are so clear and perfect; even Mike, who doesn't usually get super excited about things that comes in the mail, couldn't believe how amazing it looks. Upon first seeing it, Carina exclaimed that it is, "awesome!" She circled around pointing out "Mommy!", "Daddy!", and "baby!" I don't think she realizes that the baby is actually her quite yet.
She likes to climb inside of it as much as she likes to store toys in it ;)
So far, Carina has had so much fun throwing anything and everything into the bag (including my credit cards? lol) and she also enjoys climbing inside of it, and putting it on her head. Who would have thought that a container intended for the storage of toys would become a toy itself? Leave it to a toddler...

Apparently Mommy's credit cards go in with the toys?!?
I love our bag. I think it makes a really fantastic unique and practical gift. The only room for improvement I see is that the canvas is a little thin, which means the sides of the bag don't stand up quite rigid on their own all the time when the bag is empty. Although, my guess is that this is due to the fact that you wouldn't be able to print clear, beautiful photos on anything thicker. Definitely a trade off that I am willing to accept for such impressive print quality. And? It's rare that this bag isn't full of laundry, toys, or a toddler ;)

Bags of Love has the widest array of photo canvases and customized photo gifts that I have ever seen. Want to put a picture of your little one on a laptop case, makeup bag, or apron? They've got that. How about on a table cloth? Yep, that too.

Bags of Love is generously offering one of my readers their very own Laundry/Toy bag that they can customize, just like ours!
