CafePress Mother's Day Tote Bag giveaway

Since my mom and I are actually going to be together for Mother's Day, I really want to make it a special day for her, and that includes finding a present that she'll appreciate and enjoy. For Mother's Day, online personalized gift site CafePress invited me to select an item from their extensive collection of Mother's Day gifts. Since my mother is a very practical person, I decided on a nice tote bag. I think they use entirely too many plastic bags in the Philippines so my mom's going to be a hip, green grandma once she goes back home and starts lugging her groceries and odds and ends in her new CafePress tote bag! Keep reading below to find out what I thought of it -- and enter for a chance to win one of your own!

The Basics
Cafe Press is The place for personalized items. You can find millions of personalized gifts at CafePress – for any topic, interest, or brand! They offer a multitude of styles, colors, sizes and designs for a multitude of products -- mugs, bumper stickers, bags, hats, umbrellas, baby onesies, hoodies, shirts and more. They have a great line of bag styles that include messenger bags, beach bags, gym bags and tote bags. They have so many designs to choose from, and if you can't find a design you want, you can upload your own.

The Bongga
The amount of options you have is really staggering, but CafePress does a great job of narrowing it down for you. Just type a word into the search box and they'll find some great product matches. You can even filter your search by the kind of product (shirts, or umbrellas, or whatever you choose) or by topic (pets, humor, hobbies, etc...). It only took me minutes to find the perfect tote bag designs for myself and for Alfie. Here are just a few:

But since Mother's Day is coming up, I chose a tote bag with one of my all-time favorite slogans:

That says it all, doesn't it? It's a good quality bag, made of nice, thick canvas, with strong stitching on the handles. I know my mother is going to love it!! (shhhh, don't say anything, and if you see her around, tell her to stay away from my blog for the next few days). And that's the great thing about CafePress -- it's so easy to find the perfect personalized gift.

The Blah
It would be great if this tote bag was available with a design on both sides -- I could only find 56 tote bags with designs on both sides! Even better, I wish I could figure out a way to personalize the other side of this tote bag with a personalized message to my mom.

The Bottom Line
With so many styles and designs to choose from at CafePress, you're sure to find a bag (or any other gift item) that expresses your message and your style. It's the perfect Mother's Day present!
