Whether you need a crib or not, a little Tax Day gift for you


When I first found out I was pregnant, I went into information-gathering mode, reading everything I could about birth plans and baby care, products and gear. But I still remember my first trip to the big-box baby store: where was brand XYZ that was so highly recommended in my baby books? What do you mean they only have 12 brands? I wanted to compare 15!

Do you know how happy my research-y heart would’ve been to find CSN Store’s Baby Cribs Plus with 600 cribs and 800 strollers and 40 billion other baby doodads? OK, maybe that last number is inflated slightly, but only slightly, because Baby Cribs Plus is part of the entire CSN empire. This is the kind of empire I want to enter if I ever need to furnish my entire home top to bottom.

Now you may be thinking, Christina! Your kids didn’t even sleep in a crib!, and you are right. But, I still bought a crib naively thinking my kids would use it, and I would’ve loved to have drooled over this beauty from Stokke (above) or this more budget-friendly modern crib from Argington. And my sister would’ve been even more thrilled to get my barely-used hand-me-down.

It’s been a while since I had an infant, evidenced by the fact that I can’t believe how much the Arm’s Reach Co-Sleeper has evolved since the light-blue eyesore I had in my bedroom holding books and a water bottle for years (check it out above).

And I would’ve gone bananas looking at all the baby room decor they have. How long until I have grandchildren? (ha, just kidding! stop looking at me like that!)

————————————————

Now, here comes the fun part: I get to give one of you a little gift. Just take a look at CSN Stores’ Baby Cribs Plus, or peruse any of the 200+ CSN stores, like cookware.com, toysandgamesonline.com or allmodern.com (my fave), and pick out something you like in the $100 range (including shipping).

Leave a comment below with a link to that item, and make sure you leave an email address where I can reach you (that’s very important, Anonymous).

I’ll select one winner at random on Monday, April 19th at 8am to receive the item listed in your comment. This contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada only. (North American FTW!)

And, dear FTC: I have not been compensated for this review in any way. I just like giving stuff away from sites I actually shop.

We have a winner! Congratulations to Erin who has won the dollhouse of her (daughter’s) dreams! Thanks everyone for commenting!

    I want a hammock.

    I'd pitch in the last $25 myself, just because I haven't been in a hammock in, like, 20 years.

    I like CSN, too. Even did a giveaway with them for the cutest little kids' dish set.

    I've been switching over to stainless steel and getting rid of my Teflon over the last couple of years and I still need frying pans! Like this one: http://www.cookware.com/Calphalon-1757698-CPH1751.html or this one: http://www.cookware.com/Calphalon-1757699-CPH1752.html

    Loving the prices on this site! Thanks for the tip. :)

    I would love to have this for my son! It would be easy to take with us on trips, and it will be great inside during the long Maine winter!

    I would go for this bakeware set: http://www.cookware.com/Rachael-Ray-54070-54072-54073-54074-RRY1157.html

    Because then I could bake cakes and cupcakes. And everyone would be happy.

    DUDE. You rock! Are you sure about this? If so, we could REALLY use new bookshelves like the ones right here:

    http://www.csnstores.com/ORE-Furniture-JW-189-ORE1055.html

    FREE shipping! Our books are overwhelming us and I need to reorganize our homeschooling stuff from our regular reading stuff AGAIN. This is going to be a yearly issue, isn't it?

    Wow. I would have loved a brand new, stylish crib. We had hand-me-downs though. and they were just fine.

    I've never heard of CSN but, man! Awesome links. Thanks.

    I am coveting this awesome lobster pot. I've been searching for just the right one…

    Well now wasn't that fun…and a tough decision. So many fun things! I chose this crepe pan because we all love crepes and need a decent pan and this is not something I would buy on my own so it would be a nice gift to myself (and K.C. since he is the one who really loves crepes)!
