Cloo For You Giveaway

If you're "newer" to MOmMy bRaIn, then you probably haven't fully realized the extent of my Etsy addiction... my introduction to Etsy? After my newborn photoshoot, I asked our photographer, Kerianne, where she got all the beautiful hats that she used in her photos. One word. Etsy.

I wasn't home for 10 minutes before (1) I was addicted and (2) I had purchased two beautiful hats from Cloo Gifts... two different shades of pink, duh! :p

Since then, I have bought at least 8 hats from Ching (the creator/seller). They are all beautiful, so well made (her winter hat lasted all winter and I packed it up for use on the next rugrat - if it's a girl, obviously). I got SO many compliments on it too... most people asking if I made it myself and talking about how talented I am as a Mommy! :p ha ha ha, of course, I mentioned Ching and Etsy and, hopefully, spread the addiction a little myself!

Recently, I bought a few gorgeous hats with ears from Ching for a few girlfriends who are pregnant and Ching was fabulous and sent along a few hats for me to giveaway on MOmMy bRaIn! Honestly, this is my new favourite shower gift. They are so unique, look good on every baby and are pretty gender neutral! You know you're not going to be stuck in that "crap, I got her another hooded towel, or another set of blue jammies. Not that Moms don't love that, and trust me, the duplicates are fab. But, it's nice to get something you wouldn't have gotten for yourself - non?

If you/your pregnant friend knows the sex, I highly recommend the hat with earflaps... Jane has four. They are so gorgeous and you can pretty much get ching to make one for you in any colour or size.

Chings hat range from $10-$13 which is INSANE as I've paid as much for a hat from the grocery store that I saw fifteen other kids wearing on my way out.

Here are the details of our Cloo For You Giveaway:

Ching sent TWO gorgeous "little bear" hats (that's what I call 'um) but they are technically hats with ears and ear flaps... one nutmeg and one off-white. Both are gender neutral and could be used for a sweet boy or girl!

How do you get 'um?

Check out Cloo Gifts on Etsy and comment about what other item you would love to have for your little one or pregnant friend.

That's it.

Next Monday, I will select two winners - it'll be first come, first serve on colours so be sure to check back to see if you're a winner!

Don't forget - we also have a $50 gift card to Moody Mamas up for grabs until Thursday (for US ladies only).

Doesn't she make just the most adorable hats?! I have the little brown bear one with the ears thats in your giveaway, only I had asked her to make the insides of the ears the same colour as the trim. It turned out so sweet, love your work Ching!

Kerianne said...

Isn't she so talented! And from all the little Cloo hats I see everywhere, I can tell she is so busy now too!!! Glad I could help spark your little addiction;) You should see the basket of hats I have started for Baby Brown already (and most of them are from Etsy!!) Good luck with your giveaway.

I spend about half of my work day shopping on Etsy for my soon to be born Baby Girl some hats! I've come across this seller several times, and if I had to pick out one.. It would be the Baby Hat with Earflap in one of the blue yarns (since her middle name is going to Bleu, it's only appropriate!)

Mimi said...

I've already purchased a couple of hats from Cloo Gifts. They are the best. I absolutely love the Baby bunny hat with earflap. So adorable. I would love to get one for one of my girlfriends with a little one on the way.

I also love the mustard colored hat! My bff is due in august, so it depends on what size the hats are you're giving away, since I might keep it if it fits my little guy!
