Charlene DeLoach’s Twenty Gift List

One of the biggest stresses for us during the holidays is travel. Car rides, airplane flights: it makes you want to wish it was 2013 already. This holiday season, however, I’m looking forward to trying out the Trunki Suitcase by Melissa and Doug. My full review of it can be found here. I’ve been coveting it for awhile and now that my son is old enough, it seems to be the perfect accompaniment to our upcoming travels. It will be fun to weave our through the airport with him riding on it, use it as a play toy at grandma’s house, and a wonderful place to stash toys for travel. Then when we get home, we could put it away for our next trip, or it may stay out and be a daily play item, with a great way to store his various knick-knacks. I think the biggest dilemma would be what to store inside!

In fact, if you are looking for a fun holiday gift, take a Trunki, fill it with a variety of toys and then wrap it up with a bow. What a fun gift to open on Christmas morning! A gift within a gift. So the question is, what would you fill with it? How about one of Melissa and Doug Terrific Twenty Gift List of products perfectly picked for the holidays? With everything under $30, it will be hard to pick!


But on Melissa and Doug’s Facebook page, you can enter to win a gift every day from the Terrific Twenty List. Then whatever you purchase, put it in the Melissa and Doug Trunki that you could win here! Yup. Leave a comment below about what toy from the Melissa and Doug Terrific Twenty Gift List you would put in your Trunki, and one of you will win a Trunki so you can go and do just that!
