Need Teacher Gifts? Check out Carolina Pad! {Review and Giveaway}

Around this time of year, I start to make out my Christmas gift list (I think it gets longer every year!).  One of the things that is the hardest for me to buy is teacher gifts.  I tend to go with the old standby….homemade cookies or coffee gifts cards.  But, I am looking for something different this year!

Fortunately, Carolina Pad read my mind!  I was asked to check out their new gift packs that would be perfect for teachers.  The gift packs offer many of their most popular products from the Hot Chocolate line, the Simply Chic line and more!

We received the Carolina Pad Gift Bundle No. 1 for review.  The set includes a Note Cube (with adhesive backs) in Royal Twist, Note Pad (with adhesive back) in Hot Chocolate, Paper Clips in Hot Chocolate and Hot Chocolate Ballpoint Pen.  The entire set is sold for only $5!!  This gift is not only affordable, but practical, too.

There are five gift packs available (so each teacher can have a different set!) and range from $5 to $15.  Stop the endless search for the perfect teacher gift and fill your sleigh with gifts from Carolina Pad! Make sure you “like” Carolina Pad on Facebook to get up to date on the latest holiday promotions (can you say FREE shipping??).

*winner cannot have won another Carolina Pad giveaway within the last 90 days.
