Get Back to School Ready with Name My Stuff: Review and Giveaway

Name My Stuff Review

One thing that I have learned since my boys started school, is that no matter what it is, be it their school jumper, their bag, lunchbox, drink bottle, whatever, if you ever want to see it again, you have to put a name on it!

Things at school have an uncanny knack of disappearing into thin air, never to be seen again otherwise! (And of course, children think we have a never ending supply of cash to replace them!)

Last year my children were sent some products from the lovely Tea at Name My Stuff to try – after she was quietly horrified at how much cling wrap I was using on my children’s lunches! Sistema lunch boxes – where have you been all my life? I love the different compartments, and my kids love actually being able to open and eat their lunch – without having to waste valuable play time unwrapping their sandwiches! Not only did everything come with the children’s names on them, we also received the Fridge-to-Go lunch bag.

The Fridge-to-Go lunch bag contains a removable freezer panel that you pop into the freezer the night before, and then slip it back into the panel in the lunchbox in the morning. Load up the Sistema lunchbox with healthy snacks, and pop it inside the Fridge-to-Go bag, and the food stays fresh and cool, even during the hot Summer months.

Over the years I have lost count of how many different drink bottles we have used, but the Contigo Swish bottle is by far my favourite. There is nothing more annoying than a leaky water bottle (especially for school kids who are prone to just throwing things into their school bag). I know because last year my eldest son managed to destroy his school reader during the first week of school by drowning it in his school bag with the aid of a leaky drink bottle! Hence why I absolutely rave about the Contigo drink bottles to any fellow school mums who will listen.

You can image it, can’t you? The other Mums huddled around the school picnic table at pick up time whispering to one another “Don’t make eye contact! Here comes the crazy drink bottle lady!”

Anyway, what makes the Contigo Swish bottles a stand out for me, is the unique AUTOSEAL. It has a little button that you press when you want to sip – (easy enough for kids 3 years and over to do one handed) and release to automatically seal.

They are also BPA-free, and when ordered from Name My Stuff, comes with your child’s name permanently marked into the lid.

I have just ordered 3 new ones ready to start the new school year – no more soggy wet books in the bottom of anyone’s school bag this year! Ha!

True, they are more expensive than other bottles that are available, but when you consider that I was buying cheap bottles (that leaked) and was replacing them 4 or 5 times during the school year, it is actually a lot cheaper just to buy a really good quality one from the outset.

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.

  1. I would love to win as my kids are stuck with their luncboxes from when they first started school as we ran out of money when it came to this as it all went on uniforms, books and stationary

  2. As it would be perfect for our son Marcus and he’d use it every weekday and probably on the weekends too.

  3. We have trouble getting Cooper to eat his school meals but with personalized items such as these I think the battle may actually be half fought

  4. We are about to start the journey of packing lunches each day & would love to start with prod like these. And of course miss the hassle & inconvenience of loosing containers & having soggy bags.

  5. Throwing out and wasting products that dont last and a waste of money. Would love Name My Stuff to make everything stress free and enjoyable for a change!

  6. These make mornings so much easier, I find the less stress getting out the door the better and it sets you up for a nice day, it all comes down to organisation and these products make it simple.

  7. I’m sick of other kids nicking my children’s things then feigning it was theirs in the first place. Enough is enough.

  8. Perfect for lunch for my little one
    Compact, lightweight and easily undone
    Great labels make them easy to find
    Kid friendly pack that’s smartly designed!

  9. I need to label everything so no one steals my daughter’s precious dummy at day care. It’s the best dummy in the world..according to her.

  10. I have tried some many different brands, stickers that don’t stick, bottles that leak, clips that get broke and fabric that rips. Really need to find the best and stick (no pun intended) with it.

  11. Hubby loses sooo much of his stuff that I now refuse to replace it. His current lunch box is pink and has owls (he has to use our daughters)

  12. My disabled son has to take so much extra stuff to school that it’s hard for him to keep track of the basics (like lunch boxes). This would help so much!

  13. I myself have one of these Contigo bottles. They are perfect and allow just the right amount of water into your mouth. No spillage and super funky. I have the fuchsia and blue one.

  14. Cause food containers are expensive. So school lunch boxes are even more expensive. It would be a big saving with 2 kids.
