Bea and I have spent the last few months putting together this year’s Two Tots Christmas Catalogue! I’m so glad it’s ready, and we’re excited to share it with you. The first thing I will say is if you’re not on the Two Tots mailing list yet, please do get on it pronto! Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so you can receive all the exciting news that we send (Don’t worry, we don’t flood emails so it’s one comprehensive newsletter at a time). 🙂
The thought process behind the items was that it had to be something practical, useful, fun, timeless and thoughtful — or a combination of any and all of the above.
First up: we kept the widely popular personalized line of Christmas stockings, Santa Sacks, Aprons and Drawstring Bags (to name a few). As a customer of Two Tots not long ago, I purchased Santa sacks for my girls. They’d be used as the sacks Santa would leave his presents in. There was no need for Santa to gift wrap, and no need to write a note (which is what gave away Santa for me in my younger days!). After that, the sacks were easy to tote around our three other Christmases to put all their loot in.
A lot of people have asked me about the Large sack and the XL sack and why it’s the same price. Basically it’s just the orientation of the bag that’s different, but the amount of cloth used is the same. 🙂
The drawstring bags are great for kids to put extra clothes in and take to school, or put some toys in to take to a friend’s house. It’s all washable (please iron on the reverse side always!), so it’s easy to keep clean and store. And they’re a gift that’s under P300! This year we added another design for the boys: soccer balls! And the best part about it being personalized is that it won’t get lost.
Some notes: For the personalized items, we’re doing them in batches this year due to the high volume of orders. Our next batch of production will run for orders placed by October 30. This will ensure you get your personalized items on or before November 30. To secure your order, don’t forget to make the 50% deposit and send us a scanned copy of the deposit slip!
Then there are the regular items of Two Tots that are also great gift items A lot of them can be found in Babyland and the ID Ideas for Living branches, but we’re happy to accept orders directly as well. There are the usual clip hangers, different shaped chalk boards (with chalk!), and the magnetic boards; all useful, handy and very practical.
There are a lot more, including some items from our new collection of Crib Sets, Bean Bags and Hampers, but I will leave all of that to the imagination for now (and also so that you can join our mailing list to see!).
And of course — what is Christmas without food!
Because of last year’s successful partnership with Maga’s Kitchen, we decided to go on ahead and do it again! This time, Maga herself collaborated with us for some of her new items that are perfect gifts for families, co-workers, aunts, uncles and friends.
We have designed personal trays and packaged them along with Maga’s Lemon Squares (box of 15) and Maga’s Kitchen Mango Walnut Loaf — a new creation. It’s absolutely delectable, I kid you not. My husband can finish a whole loaf in one sitting (and he’s the pickiest eater in our household). If you ask me, it’s a wonderful alternative to the usual fruit cake.
The trays come in a black and white Damask or a distressed green finish with gold trim. They’re also sold separately at P295 each, but are given at a discount when purchased with some Maga’s Kitchen items. I don’t want to spoil the surprise here, but all the details will be in our newsletter soon, so be sure to open it up!
The best part is, you just have to give us your order. Maga’s requires orders a week in advance (also of course with the 50% deposit), and then we take care of packaging it all for you and letting you know when it’s ready to pick up. It’s giving yummy food the Two Tots way! 😉
We have so so so much more in store for you all this coming season, Bea and I are bursting at the seams (not to mention all the taste testing we’ve done! Yum!). So start your Christmas list, and check it twice! We hope to make this Christmas shopping a little less hectic and a little bit more fun for you!
Two Tots will also be at the Mommy Mundo Bazaar at the Rockwell Tent on November 10 and December 8. We will have all our Christmas items and food there for actual shopping and order-taking. Be sure to drop by and stay tuned for what you can possibly win from Mommy Mundo! 🙂
