I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.
The holiday season has barely begun, and I already feel way behind! I like to shop for holiday outfits for my boys – and had planned a trip to a nearby OshKosh B’gosh store, but then everyone at my house got sick. So I moved to Plan B: online shopping at OshKosh.com. I hopped on the computer and visited the OshKosh Holiday #GIVEHAPPY Gift Shop.
The #GIVEHAPPY collection is a cute holiday collection of baby, toddler and children’s clothing. You can find everything from pajamas and button down flannel shirts to party dresses and coats. Now that winter temperatures are here, I like to dress the boys in lots of warm layers. A standard play outfit for them is jeans and a long-sleeved shirt.
The OshKosh Sherpa Vest became a fast favorite for my 5-year-old. He loves the snuggly fleece vest and it adds an extra layer of warmth to any outfit. I should have bought one for his little brother — but I know he’ll be getting to wear this one as a hand-me-down next year. He just grew into a pair of hand-me-down OshKosh fleece-lined jeans that his brother wore last winter.
OshKosh clothes always survive to become hand-me-downs. Trust me. I have had four boys and know how to work the hand-me-down system. Some brands can take all the rough play days and endless launderings without looking worse for the wear. And OshKosh is one of those brands. That’s one of the main reasons why we shop their store. We know we are buying clothes that will last long enough for at least 2 kids to wear.
Another reason we love OshKosh is because I can find clothes for my kids that coordinate well together for special events such as family photos. It can be a difficult task when you are shopping for a baby, a toddler and a big kid. I don’t know what I’ll do when my oldest son outgrows the OshKosh size range (Newborn to Toddler to Boys Size 12)…guess I’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
It can be so easy for me to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I like that OshKosh wants to remind everyone that even a small act of kindness can brighten someone’s day. I will be trying hard to look for ways I can #GiveHappy to others. One way OshKosh is helping to #GIVEHAPPY is with a special coupon offer for 25% off a $30+ purchase. This coupon is valid in stores and online. I am always up for saving money, especially this time of year!
The $100 gift card I used to shop at OshKosh went a long way. I bought 2 pairs of jeans, 3 long-sleeved graphic tees, sherpa vest, long-sleeved poplin shirt, long-sleeved pocket tee and 2 Trapper Hats. Most of my items were under $10 each. Now is a great time to shop holiday styles and clearance. They are having some excellent sales plus you can now use this 25% off coupon to help you save even more.
Kids can join in the #GIVEHAPPY effort, too. To help us out, I made a list of 16 random acts of kindness we can use to inspire us every day.
How will you #GIVEHAPPY this holiday season? What is your favorite holiday outfit at OshKosh B’Gosh?
