GIVEAWAY: Mitetees Personalized Gifts

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

In preparation for a baby shower that I attended recently, I looked over the pages of the registry for the parents-to-be multiple times. I wanted to purchase items that they wanted, of course, but as a seasoned mom, I also wanted to get things that were somewhat practical and useful.

Then there's the wow factor. A box of diapers? Yes to useful, but no to wow. Those really fancy and expensive baby blankets? Yes to exciting, no to practical. One spit up on them and they're done. Plus, they'll get lots of those. I wanted something that was unique, functional, cute, fun, unforgettable and affordable. Is that too much to ask?

Had I known about Mitetees earlier, I definitely would have brought their signature piece:

I would have sat and privately gloated about bringing the coolest gift, too.

Apparently, Cindy Hoeppner knew that there are people like me out there when she created Mitetees and changed traditional gift-giving into a way to give something unforgettable. Based on the idea of celebrating parenthood with cute, smart designs and practical garments, Mitetees offers clothing for new babies, birthdays, siblings or just anytime that you want your child to break the mold and look especially stylish.

The only difficult part about ordering an item from Mitetees is deciding between all of the amazing designs. Available in onesies in sizes 3-6 months, 6-12 months and 12-18 months and tees in 2T, 4T and 6T there is a style for any age of childhood. Not only is your order customized exactly to fit your needs, you also have four font color options and can select between short or long sleeves.

Giving a new baby gift for twins and you're not sure how the Production onesie (shown above) would work for two? Mitetees has you covered with their set of two Twins design (shown at right). You can even have the wording written in different colors to help tell an identical set apart!

Looking for a birthday shirt that will get more use out of it than just the one day? Order your child (or grandchild or niece or nephew...) Mitetees' Another Year Older tee (shown at left) and they will be able to enjoy having their name and age displayed for the entire year... and outgrow it just in time to order one for next year!

I had such a great time looking at all of the designs that Mitetees offers, that it was extremely difficult to choose ones for Big Sister E and Little Sister B. I wished I had ordered the Big shirt (shown at right) for Big Sister E before Little Sister B was born instead of getting her one of those boring traditional Big Sister shirts that we found. But I wanted styles that would fit their individual personalities as well as really wow everyone who saw them.

I think I chose well.


Little Sister B's Protect Your Production shirt is perfect. It is thick and soft and the lettering is printed on without showing any possibility of coming off (even when I picked at it to check). I love the simple, understated way the copyright symbol and the year she was born stand out against the white shirt and the way that it takes people a second or two to look at it, comprehend and go, "Oh, hey! That's really cool..." My second choice for her was the Patent design (shown below), as she is definitely my exclusive, one-of-a-kind little one.


When Big Sister E wears her Made shirt, we turns heads wherever we go. The colors are vivid and bright and everyone loves that it says "made in wisconsin." This would also be a really fun shirt to give a child before or after moving to commemorate where they're from (the shirt can be customized for a state, city, town, you name it)! Or it's just plain fun to wear around and give a thrill to everyone you see.

My girls look unique, stylish and cute in their Mitetees shirts and, since they go with absolutely everything, they're wearing them all the time. After having been washed multiple times, the designs still look as good as new and the fabric doesn't show any wear at all. I'm already thinking ahead to the next occasion that would be a good excuse reason to order from Mitetees. Thanks to the generosity of Cindy at Mitetees, one of you will be the hit at your next gift-giving event, because...

One person will win a onesie/tee from Mitetees of their own! Winner chooses the design!
