Thirty-One Review and Giveaway


About Thirty-One
Thirty-One is a faith based company. The name Thirty-One is derived from Proverbs 31. It describes a virtuous woman who exhibits hard work, wisdom, encouragement and care for others. Because of these qualities she is worthy of reward, honor and praise. The products that Thirty-One offers are unique, stylish, functional and affordable. To add to the uniqueness of Thirty-One, many products can be personalized through embroidery. You can add your name, monogram or even a favorite word to your bag. Between the different font choices and thread colors, the options available to you are almost limitless.

A Year Full of Uses
A Thirty-One Tote has a year full of uses....Here are some great ideas from Shantel.

January - Pack with hot chocolate, a mug, and marshmallows and give it to a neighbor or friend to enjoy a cold winter day.
February - Fill with chocolates and Valentines treats for your favorite Valentine.
March - On St. Patty's Day, pack a special lunch and a note to your loved one telling them how lucky you are to have them! Don't forget to include a gold coin.
April - Use as an Easter basket. Your kids will love seeing their names and finding their treats inside. What a durable egg sack too!
May - A gift for a mother. Embroider mom's name and include a small potted plant, gift card, CD/DVD, coffee mug, and other favorite treats as a fun surprise.
June - Personalize and give to a teacher as an end of the year thank you! Or give to dad for his golfing or camping snacks for a unique Father's Day gift.
July - Pack snacks for the 4th fireworks show or a trip to the beach.
August - Back to school. Get the kids a new lunch box to start the year off right.
September - Have a nice pic-nic at the part and bring your snacks along.
October - Give it to your little gobblin to get their Halloween treats!
November - Bring is to Thanksgiving dinner to pack up your left-overs or fill it with your favorite snacks for Black Friday shopping!
December - Personalize as a stocking stuffer or wrap it up as a gift!

My Take on Thirty-One
I received a thermal lunch tote from Thirty-One consultant, Shantel Ruebling, in the Floral Fanfare pattern. I had it embroidered with the word "Faith", not as in Faith the name but as in to have faith, which I felt was appropriate since Thirty-One is of course a faith-based company. First off, I was amazed at the size of this tote. I thought it would be a small tote, enough for maybe a sandwich, a drink, and another snack item but I was wrong. This tote could actually probably pack a decent sized lunch for two, which would be great for a long day away from home no matter where you were going. This will be perfect to take to the ball fields this summer during my son and step daughter's games to hold extra drinks that will be nice and cold whenever they are ready for them. This tote would be easy to wipe off if it ever got dirty. There is also a small outside opening which would be perfect for something small such as a tablet of paper and a pen or car keys or even a few bucks, whatever your situation calls for. This is my first Thirty-One item and I have to say that I am impressed with the quality, design, colors etc. and I will be shopping with Thirty-One in the future for not only myself but as gifts as well.
