#GiveHappy & #HappyHolidayPledge (#MC #Sponsored)

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central (#MC) for OshKosh B’gosh. I received an OshKosh B’gosh gift card to purchase product and to thank me for my participation.”

It's that time of year again-- as soon as Christmas Carols start playing in the stores, we start feeling the pressure to crank out a bunch of handmade gifts. Starting two years ago, I've taken the Happy Holiday pledge. Yes, that's right. I'm not making any gifts for anyone. *gasp*

It's made such a huge difference for the past couple of holiday seasons to not be knitting on a deadline or be up at 2am rethreading my sewing machine. And I can spend the crafting time I do have working on things that I love (like expanding my embroidered ornament collection!)

That's why I was so excited when I saw the new Osh Kosh B'gosh #GiveHappy campaign.

I'll definitely be shopping for kids gifts and holiday clothes this season instead of making my own. Osh Kosh has adorable holiday clothes for parties, dress up, and even christmas pj's. Osh Kosh's quality is amazing; and I've always been able to hand down our Osh Kosh clothes even though our normal outfits are reduced to rags.

We are lucky enough that we have an Osh Kosh outlet nearby by (check for yours using the store locator!) ... so I decided to pop in and get my #Give Happy on.

 The first thing I noticed is that they have a lot of in season basics on sale-- Jeans, long sleeved tees and jackets at reasonable prices from sizes newborn - 12. These are perfect for gifts.
 They also have some adorable accessories that would look great in holiday pictures paired with more formal clothes (handmade or not).
 I grabbed a ton of pink long sleeved tees for for Amaani, and then my husband distracted the kids while I got a few small items to put away for Christmas gifts. Here's a hint:
Shhh... don't tell what they are! I'm crossing my fingers that we'll get snow this Christmas too!

Want your own? Osh Kosh B'gosh is subsidizing your holiday shopping with this awesome 25% off $30 or more coupon. (Most coupon's make you spend 50 dollars at least, so this is an awesome deal!) Don't have an OshKosh nearby? You can always check them out online. You can also connect with Osh Kosh on Facebook and Twitter to OshKosh B’gosh and keep an eye out for more deals.
