Lovable Labels Review & Giveaway (US&CAN 11/29)

As I mentioned before, I'm on the hunt to find great products for my son's upcoming Daycare and school. When I say great products, I mean - quality, value, eco-friendly and actually useful! It's also a plus when the company is Canadian as I love supporting local businesses (and need I say that the shipping rates are way lower!).

Review
I had the pleasure to review Holly Jolly Gift Pack - Santa's Pick from Lovable Labels. It came in a cute red envelope which contained a booklet with pages of different labels. I love the fact that it came in a booklet as it's easier to hold on to than separate sheets of paper. The booklet included 15 blue sticker labels, 40 red slimline labels, 12 shoe labels, 24 clothing dots (in 3 sizes) and 2 mini metal tags. That's 93 different labels! You can also personalize the labels with your choice if an icon. I chose a dinosaur icon for Michael, because I found it to be the cutest.

I immediately went to test out the labels. The first ones I used were the shoe stickers. I often take my son to a baby playground where he has to take his shoes off. I'm always worried that because there are tons of baby shoes lying around, someone will take ours accidentally. Now I don't have to worry as much anymore! The labels fit size 6 shoes perfectly. These labels do peel off, but I think it's because the insoles of the shoes I applied them to were cloth-like. The next labels I tried out were the clothing dots. I love that they come in 3 different sizes to accommodate different sizes of clothing tags. Michael's hoody had a very small clothing tag and the smallest label fit it well. My favourite items from the package were the mini metal tags. I think they look very adorable! It's easy to unhook the metal chain, but not easy enough for a kid to do it. These can be attached to a diaper bag or a school backpack.

When the time comes, I'll be labeling all of Michael's stationery. I know from personal school experience that your supplies always get mixed up with other people's and then you end up having to buy another set of crayons, etc. I would absolutely recommend Lovable Labels.

I like the press and stick clothing labels, I went to click further and see the designs but the site seems to have stopped working for me. I would love to win labels, my oldest is starting school in 2011 and I have a feeling they might come in very handy!
