Gift Guide Age Recommendation: 18+
I love a reusable bag or tote. I wish I could say that this is because of my concern for the environment and my own ecological footprint. In truth, I just like keeping all my stuff together without fear that it will get to heavy and break a handle. I’m also a fan of walking out of a store with a bag, or two, which is pretty and durable instead of a handful of plastic sacks.
Now, I have to admit that I am always looking for a good buy on sacks and bags. I have a small collection and they all have different purposes. Some are festive and go with my family to the beach, some are mesh and go with me to the local farmers market, some are durable and go to the library (I love reading good books for free), etc. I don’t like buying them from grocery stores for one reason — they always have the grocery store logo on them. I really do not like store logos on bags I carry around a lot and use at multiple stores and for multiple purposes. Maybe it is a quirk of mine, but I also like any reusable bag or sack that does not take up a lot of space in my trunk. If it doesn’t fold easily and stay in place, then it gets tangled up in the baby gear.
The SnapSac reusable bag products went above and beyond my expectations. I LOVE that they fold into a tiny, compact pouch and snap closed for storage. They don’t take over my trunk and they fit in my purse until I need them. They are also quite stylish and EXTREMELMY durable. I took two sacks with me to the grocery store and I got a lot of heavy groceries in them. They are fully lined and the material is very comfortable in your hand.
Here is a picture of some of my groceries in my SnapSac.
This little tote fit a box of cereal, a box of oatmeal, 6 apples, a jar of organic raspberry preserves, a bag of wild rice, a bag of bulgur wheat, a bag of 13 bean soup mix, a large tub of Greek yogurt and a box of almond milk. And, I still had room for a few more items!
Here is a picture of the SnapSac assisting me in toy transport. It took 18 little toys to travel 2 hours via car the other day. Thankfully, I packed 22 toys.
These sacks are ideal for shopping, traveling, running errands and the SnapSacs are so pretty you could even use them to wrap a present. I think that these lovely SnapSac products would be a great gift for a hostess, co-worker, or teacher as a Christmas time thank you gift. Having lived in New York for a bit, I think that these would also be ideal gifts to any friend or family member who uses public transit. Oh, and you may want to gift a few to anyone on your list who runs a lot of errands. It is very nice to put everything in one or two SnapSacs instead of having several plastic bags cut into your hands.
