Back to School Must-Haves Review & Giveaway

Back to School Giveaway

We went back to school a few weeks ago, but we’re still getting settled in to the new school year routine. How about you?  If your kids are still out for the summer, or if they’re back in school, but you’re still trying to “get with it” then perhaps a few goodies could help you.  Today I’m highlighting a few products for moms to kids of all ages, and I’ve also got a prize pack for you!

Let’s start with something for mom’s with small children:

Gizmo Flip Bottle

Contigo is the leading producer of innovative water bottles, travel mugs and kid’s water bottles, and they are offering the new Contigo Autospout Gizmo Flip Kids Water Bottle.  This water bottle is so snazzy.  It’s available in blue and pink, and the blue has a sail boat theme to it that is so cute!

It also has a pop top and a straw that is spill proof.  And the product is dishwasher safe.  These are great for when you’re on the go.  Take them in the car or place them in a sports bag, backpack, or lunch box.

Rubbermaid LunchBlox

Rubbermaid’s LunchBlox® is a must-have this fall for organized and easy lunch making!  LunchBlox offers an easy solution for meals on-the-go as these containers stack and snap to each other to stay organized and maximize space.  Containers also snap to the Blue Ice panel to keep food items fresh and are microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe and all kits are 100% BPA free.  Options include the Sandwich Kit
salad kit , entrée kit and individual containers.

The sandwich kit I’m featuring today includes one container that hold 2.6 cups.  This is the sandwich container, but you could also use it to hold other entrees like casseroles, pastas, salad and even soup.  It also includes the Blue Ice, a must have for any lunch box.  And it has 2 containers that each hold half a cup, and 1 container that contains 1.2 cups.  These containers are great for side dishes, veggies, chips, cookies, and anything else you can think of!

And finally we have the  DYMO LabelManager 160 Label Maker.  I, for one, LOVE label makers.  These have traditionally been great for labeling files and other items in your office, but nowadays people are using label makers for everything you can possibly imagine:  

Label containers and jars in your kitchen pantry, bathroom and closet organizers, boxes in the garage, and craft organizing!  The possibilities are endless!

 DYMO also has new limited-edition Neon Labels in hot pink, glowing green and brilliant orange. If you’re like me and you things to color coded you will love that!  Plus, kids will love labeling their school supplies in these fun new colors!

  1. I love my Rubbermaid Lunch Blox. I actually have two of them already and they are perfect for taking my lunch to work! Everyone comments on my cute little boxes! I would love to get my hands on that DYMO label maker! Think of all the things I could label!!

  4. Audra O'Hara says

    My favorite is the Contigo Autospout Gizmo Flip water bottle. The bottle my daughter has been using (different brand) is now leaking. Another must-have for us was a great backpack with comfortable shoulder straps and made according to age.

  5. the dip sounds great!

  6. Michelle J. says

    I love that water bottle!

  7. Great giveaway! We just bought a Contigo thermos for our son’s lunches but this has a different spout that I considered. I’d love to have 2 so I wouldn’t have to wash it every evening and I’d really like to try this spout. However, the labeller… love it! It’s actually been on my Amazon wishlist for a while now.
