Stuck on You Back to School Review and Giveaway

My boys like things in double; if one has it the other is pretty much guaranteed to want the same!  They have matching trainers, youngest has ones slightly smaller than his brother, but so slight is the difference it’s a struggle every morning trying to figure out the owner of each pair!  The sizes had all but worn off, so luckily I received my shoe labels in the nick of time.  It’s a breeze now as they easily spot their own shoes.  At the school disco more of their style of shoe were popping up all over the place, as it seems such a popular choice of trainer (flashing lights can do that!), so shoe dots are pretty essential…


My boys also have matching raincoats; youngest is almost as big as his brother despite the gap of 21 months.  He is a strapping four year old bless him so again clothing labels are handy so we can make sure they each have the right coats too!

For school name labels are even more important, the amount of items that end up in the lost property is unreal.  The school have actually started a stall to sell them off cheaply to help raise funds as so many are unclaimed they do not have space for them.  But constantly replacing lost uniform can be pricey so spending out on labels is worthwhile and very sensible.

I have a generous competition for two winners to pick any Stuck on You label value pack from the selection available on the website.  


If you would like a chance of winning one then please fill out the rafflecopter below by the 23rd of August.  We are almost half way through the holidays, so time to either start ordering labels (or ideally winning them here!).  Now is a good time mind with the free shipping on value packs until the 11th of August.

  2. School still seems to be a long time away but from past experience I know that all of a sudden it will be panic stations when we realise time has flown. It would be a good idea to organise earlier this year. Starting to label things would be very sensible. The Stuck on You labels look super.

    I usually wait until a week or so before as my daughter is prone to growth spurts so I will buy uniform and shoes just before, sometimes means a trail round a few extra shops for her sizing but I think its worth it.
