Gubby Gear |Christmas Gift Guide| {review+giveaway}


 Welcome to Gubby Gear, home of the most luxurious cuddle bathrobes for those special kiddos in your life!



 Marcia, the brilliant creator of Gubby Gear, sews these handmade robes with gorgeous designer fabrics and the finest minky, chenille, and terry cloth you can find!



 It's not just these fabulous robes, either!!  Check out these hooded towels!  What a wonderful gift for boys or girls, {maybe even adults :)} -- personalized to make it extra special!


I'm sorry, but I'm a sucker for anything personalized!  At Gubby Gear, you can have personalized blankets, personalized towels, personalized bathrobes... you get the idea, right?  And no machines here!  This is hand appliqued!  Ooh!


 Ahh!  the most perfect blanket combination:  cute cotton print, minky backing, and a satin binding! 

Marcia's quality is far superior to what you'd find in any store.  These Gubby Gear robes and blankets will make the perfect gift, and really be something that will last for years and years!


My little one modeling her cuddle robe :)  Seriously adorable!  I just can't say enough about working with Gubby Gear!  Fantastic and professional, and she truly wants to create what you have in mind!  And if you don't see a combination you like, just ask!  She's happy to take custom orders!


I'm sure you'll be emailing Marcia to see if she makes adult sizes! :)  Gubby Gear also has an etsy shop where Marcia sells her sample sizes, so the stock is always changing, and you get a discounted price!  {I know someone NEEDS this giraffe cuddle robe!}

  8. My girlfriend just started a new job after being a "stay at home mom" for the past 18 years. She was scared. Last week, I spent all week talking to her, telling her how she is going to feel once that first pay check arrives, how she can dress up and look forward to being around other people instead of by herself at home. After reading this challege, I have decided that a plant sent to her new job just might brighten her day. Thanks for the idea, I'm using one of my strengths, kindness.
