Giveaway: invite.L dual bag-in-bag

Today is the last day of our annual Home for the Holidays week! I”m a little sad to wind down the week, but we”ve given you some great gift ideas and suggestions that you can take into your holiday celebrations this year.

The final gift I”m highlighting for your holidays is the dual bag-in-bag from inviteL

I have a dual bag-in-bag in apple green and I love it!  It is one of those simple, yet genius ideas:  a bag that you load up with the gear you use on a daily basis but that you can easily move back and forth between your larger totes, diaper bags, and carry-alls without having to do the whole item by item shuffle and re-sort routine.

Just pick the bag-in-bag up by the handles and take it from one tote to the next.  Easy!  This is perfect for a parent on the go, but you don”t have to be a parent to appreciate the convenience of only having to pack a bag once.

It is cushioned, soft, and features all kinds of convenient elements like mesh pockets, zippered pockets, and snaps that let you trim the design if you need to.  I can see why this bag is one of invite.L “s international best sellers.

As a company invite.L specializes in marrying the creative with the practical.  From the website:

we don”t limit our design categories.
basically anything everything that has to do with our daily lives.

Sometimes I need to carry the diaper bag, sometimes I”m using my backpack.  Or my tote.  Or the library bag.  You get the idea.

But no matter what I”m carrying around on any given day, odds are that I need:

  • my glasses/contacts
  • a snack or two
  • a small knitting project
  • a book (especially handy in waiting rooms)
  • pen and paper
  • my phone
  • lip gloss
  • keys
  • the mini first aid kit (with four kids I”ve learned it pays to always have band aids)
  • a backup diaper and wipes
  • my wallet

Thanks to the bag-in-bag, I have access to my go to items without having to pack and re-pack, which is such a time saver!

Because I think Simple Kids readers are the best, I wanted to include a little bonus gift from me to you this holiday season, too.  I”m going to include two of my favorite books along with the bag-in-bag giveaway:  one for you and one for your kids.

While you are drooling over the invite.L website looking for holiday gifts ideas be sure to check out the rest of their stylish and functional accessories as well as their stationary.

Would you like to win a dual bag-in-bag and two of my favorite books? I”d love for you to give a dual bag-in-bag from invite.L to someone you love this Christmas (or keep it for yourself!)
