Mother's Day Gift Ideas -- Versatile and Oh So Stylish Reusable Bags from ChicoBag -- Review and #Giveaway

Disclosure:  I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Wow, it is like the holidays happen one right after another. We don't really get time to savor holidays or the decorations we put up for that short amount of time.  To me, it feels like Christmas was just the other day.  Then, Valentine's came, followed quickly by Easter.  And, now, Mother's and then Father's Day will be here before you know it.  And, with these upcoming holidays, also means that the kids will be wrapping up school for the year and getting ready to summer.

Do you have any big plans this summer?  We are hoping to finally get in a few mini vacations with the girls, now that they are getting older.  I am just hoping that by the time summer comes our youngest will be out of her "mad dash" stage, every time we let her walk next to her.  She sure if giving us a workout, and reminding me why I am not a sprint runner. :-)

Even though we will probably stay around the New England area with trips to Boston and up north to the mountains in NH, I will be ready thanks to a fun new reusable "grocery" bag from ChicoBag.  Now, I know what you are probably thinking?  Why are you getting so excited about a reusable bag?  Well, for one, this is not just your average "reusable grocery bag."  Oh no, these are not only practical, but they are stylish at the same time, making trips to the local farmer's market, grocery store or even to your child's sports game or practice even more fun, and filled with people asking about these reusable and complimenting you on them.

Thanks to the kind folks at ChicoBag, they sent along two bags recently, one for review and one for me to give away to one lucky reader (read on to learn how you can win this stylish reusable grocery bag from ChicoBag that is up for grabs, in time for Mother's Day).  

"The Boysenberry Bliss Sidekick bag is the perfect sized cross-body bag for everyday use. Its hands-free design is ideal for running errands,  shopping, or on the go. This versatile bag holds up to 25 pounds. When expanded it buttons at the top, and conveniently rolls for easy storage in your pocket or purse. This fashion forward bag will make a statement wherever you go!"

Out of the two reusable bags sent -- Sidekick Crossbody in Boysenberry Bliss and the Purple Blooms Flourish, I fell in love with the the Sidekick Crossbody in Boysenberry Bliss, and ended up keeping it for myself. 

And, I have been taking full advantage of this reusable bag by trading in my diaper bag and hand bag and using this bag to run errands around town with the girls, as well as bring along when we took the girls recently to "Day out with Thomas."  

I lost count of how many ladies stopped to ask me about the reusable bag from ChicoBag, as they wanted to get one, too.  I couldn't resist opening the bag and showing them how roomy it was, and how much stuff it held.  They, like me, fell in love with the unique print of this reusable bag, which is available for purchase from ChicoBag for only $9.99.

"Flourish is a luxurious, deep purple reusable bag with a fun floral pattern. Pops of orange and white complete the design. The large, forty pound carrying capacity and shoulder length straps make this reusable bag the ideal companion on any day trip or shopping outing. The entire bag stuffs into an integrated pouch for easy storage when not in use and is made of durable, machine washable fabric. Keep it in your glove box or purse and make single use bags a thing of the past!"

Other bag styles available from ChicoBag include shoulder bags, cross body bags, backpacks, duffel, messenger and print bags like the Purple Blooms Flourish and Sidekick Crossbody in Boysenberry Bliss reusable bags I was sent to review.  From biking to other outdoor fun like hiking or merely a picnic in the park, to overnight getaways or a quick trip to the local farmer's market or grocery store, ChicoBag has just the right bag for your needs.  And, once you use their bags, you will wonder how you ever lived without them.  

Out of all the reusable bags we own, none compare to this bag.  I love how stylish it is, and how they can be used for so many things.  Like I said, I have using it to run errands, for day trips with the girls, and most recently brought it with us when we took the girls for an overnight stay at a local hotel, to celebrate Savannah finally sticking with her potty training.  I ended up bringing the Sidekick Crossbody in Boysenberry Bliss bag to the pool with us.  I couldn't believe how much it held -- 3 towels, sandals for the girls, diapers, and a few odds and ends.  And, when we were done swimming, I was able to use the bag to hold the wet clothes, as we walked back to our room.  

With summer fast approaching and so many day trips planned, I can't wait to bring this reusable bag from ChicoBag with me.  And, when asked by passerby's where I got it, I will not hesitate to talk up ChicoBag , and how they offer not just this bag, but other reusable bags, totes and so much more, at affordable prices, and in a variety of colors and designs.  Who knew that carrying around a reusable bag, even just to the grocery store could be done in such a stylish way. :-)
