Last Minute Gift Ideas -- Shop the Carter's "Friends and Family Event" and Save 25% Off Your Entire Purchase #CartersFam #MC #Sponsored

Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Carter’s. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.

While I am not one to venture out to the malls or stores these finally shopping days left until Christmas, I had to make an exception yesterday, to take advantage of the Carter's Friends and Family Event, which is going on now through 12/24.  

To take advantage of this special savings, you will have to print out the following coupon and bring it to the store with you.  Or, you can download to your phone and show your phone at checkout.  Note: The above-mentioned coupon excludes clearance, doorbusters & Carter’s at Home. 

Don't want to deal with the crowds or fighting for a parking space, you can also take advantage of the annual Carter's Friends & Family Event online, too.  Just use the coupon code shown above to receive the 25% discount.

I have been a loyal Carter's customer since I found out I would be aunt 8 years ago.  And, since then I have been buying outfits for my nieces, nephew and now own daughters for birthdays, holidays or just because. Note the emphasis on "just because."  I can't walk past this store without going in and checking out their seasonal offerings.  And, it is so hard not to buy something, as the prices are great and the selection of clothes is amazing.  

When it came time to put together my baby registry for Savannah, most of my requests came from Carter's.  I couldn't get enough of their cute footies and onesies.  If I had the space, I think I would have bought up one of each. :-)  They were so cute, and the clothes made for great photo ops with both Savanna and Arabella.  And, like I did for my nieces and nephew, I would buy clothes at the end of the season when they were marked down, as well as pick up cute seasonal outfits and accessories.  Christmas is the best time of year to stop Carter's as I love their winter line, including their comfy fleece pajamas, but also because they have great sales and coupon offers like the "Carter's Friends & Family" Event.  I wasn't expecting to spend that much at the store yesterday, but with all the sales going on, and knowing that I would be saving 25% off my total purchases (excluding clearance, doorbusters & Carter’s at Home items), I found myself saving over $100 on $200 worth of clothes for my girls and my nieces and nephews.  You can't have enough clothes, right?  

Knowing that the stores and parking lot would be crazy, I opted to keep the girls home.  Also, I was looking for a little retail therapy after a crazy few weeks with colds and last minute holiday preparations.  I ended up spending over 2 hours in the store. I looked at each and every rack and shelf, to make sure not to miss a sale or deal. :-)  Other moms and grandma's were walking around with arm fulls of clothes, and had the coupon in hand at checkout.  I guess I was not the only one who knew about the "Carter's Friends & Family" Event. But, I didn't mind, as this let me know that others love Carter's just as much as my family does, and loves to shop this trusted name in children's clothing.  And, those who brought their babies in strollers didn't have issues manuevering through the mom-friendly aisles, which are wide enough for a stroller or even arm full of clothes to pass through. :-)

If you are looking for last minute gift ideas or just love a good sale, why not visit your local Carter's today through 12/24, making sure to bring the 25% off coupons for the "Carter's Friends & Family" Event?  Carter's offers clothing for both boys and girls, from newborn to size 7.  I couldn't get over the cute holiday outfits they had available for Christmas.

Little suits and sweater/pants sets for boys, and frilly fun dresses for girls.  Oh, and if you have newborns or babies, you will gush over the cute Christmas onesies and one-piece footed outfits.  I found myself wishing my girls were little again, just so that I could buy these adorable outfits and put them in it.

After my visit to Carter's yesterday, and with Santa expected to bring more Carter's clothes for the kids :-), I think the kids will be set for clothes until....spring -- when Carter's comes out with their spring line.  Shhh, don't tell my husband, but I also picked up a few cute Valentine's Day outfits for the girls, which are available now online and at all Carter's stores.  I couldn't resist, s they were too cute to leave on the rack. :-)  I can't wait to see the Easter dresses they will have available, so that I can dress the girls in matching outfits.  Now that they are in the same size clothes, I can't rely on hand me downs.  Instead, I find myself buying two of everything, as they want the same thing they other has, including their clothes.

Don't forget to share the Carter's Friends & Family" Event with your family and friends, and pass along the coupon, so that they can also take advantage of the 25% off savings.  This is one sale not to be missed, and one I (and so many others) look forward to each year.  

Click here to check out this season's clothing line available now at Carter's by visiting -  While I love to see the clothes up close, it is always nice to have  a game plan and wish list of clothes during this busy shopping season.  I even let my girls pick out a few outfits that they saw online, that I surprised them with when I got home yesterday.  

Stay tuned, as I will be uploading photos of the girls wearing some of their new outfits shortly.  They ended up having a modeling show last night, and now the clothes are in the wash.  But, in the meantime, here are some stock photos from Carter's online store, to give you an idea of the types of adorable outfits that would make for a great last minute gift idea, or to dress your children in for photos with Santa, family gatherings, church service, etc.
