GIFT NAME: ChariTotes

We’re posting about the most unique, exciting and sure-to-be-popular gift ideas that we’re seeing while walking the New York International Gift Fair.  It is one of the biggest events of its kind in the world and it’s right here in our own back yard.  It’s also only open to media and buyers so read-on for our exclusive inside scoop.  Check back daily to see all of our fab finds.


What is it?

DIY kits for kids where they design their own baseball hat, tote bag, or hand puppet AND 10% of the proceeds go to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

Why do I love it?

I love that these kits get kids’ creativity flowing, but also raises their awareness about a very special cause that they can connect with…other children. The Party Pack of 12 totes  is a great purchase for your child’s next birthday party to get all of the kids involved and having fun.

Who would you give it to?

I would give these to all of my nieces and nephews. Any age and gender will have fun creating their own tote, hat, or puppet. It can be a great moment to teach children about helping others.

When can we buy it?

These are available now.

What’s the retail price?

They sell for only $10 each!
