Giveaway: $100 Gift Certificate from Sarah’s Silks

This giveaway has ended and I’ll announce the winner shortly!

I‘m back for our final Home for the Holidays giveaway! We’ve enjoyed 15 giveaways across the entire network this week—all great gift ideas, just in time for the holidays.

I’m excited about my last giveaway today because of all the imaginative play it’s going to inspire in my little people and in the home of one lucky winner.

It’s a $100 gift certificate to Sarah’s Silks–a store full of dress up inspiration for kids.

Whether you have toddlers, preschoolers, or elementary-aged children, you’ll find something in this shop to add to your Christmas list.

Find out how you can win!

I first discovered Sarah’s Silks a few years ago, and last Christmas I asked a family member to buy Trishna, Jonathan, and Elijah these sweet crowns.

So I was thrilled to welcome this shop as a vendor for our holiday week. For my review items, I chose a knight’s costume and two of the dress up capes Sarah carries in her store.

The capes come in a wide variety of colors and feel soft and smooth against your skin. I love that the colors are reversible, giving more choices to the child as they play. These capes have an elastic neck band with satin ties and should easily fit ages 3-8.

With all the pretend sword playing between two boys in my home I’m pretty sure this knight’s costume is going to see a lot of action after being opened on Christmas Day!

It’s a one-piece slip-on tunic, with a belt and cape attached. These costumes also match the crowns and play swords in the store and make the perfect outfit for pretending to be kings, princes, knights, and more.

Owner Sarah Lee discovered the power of silk in make-believe after becoming a mother herself. One day she tossed her young son an old silk scarf to use for dressing up–that was over 17 years ago and the rest is history!

The dyes used on the fabrics are non-toxic and the silks themselves can easily be hand-washed. As someone passionate about ethical spending, I appreciate this “family-made” policy from the company:

“Sarah’s Silks hires Chinese seamstresses who work in their homes, often sitting in doorways, as their children play nearby. Sarah’s Silks offers the seamstresses incentives beyond prevailing wages as well as access to supplemental health insurance as part of their efforts to support the healthy families of their partners across the world.”

On top of their popular dress-up collection, other items the store carries include hand-dyed playsilks, bed canopies, and a range of toys. Look no further to find a great gift for the creative child in your life.

One Simple Homeschool reader will win a $100 gift certificate to Sarah’s Silks!

  1. For dress up, my daughter’s most favorite toy is a black eyeliner pencil she uses to draw moustaches, scars, wizarding scars and pirate patches.

  2. My 2 year old is just entering in the princess stage and loving it!

  3. liked both on facebook

  4. My oldest daughter just turned 2 and is only now becoming interested in dress-up. She likes to walk around the house in a plastic fireman hat and a doll diaper bag she calls her purse.

  5. My son hasn’t moved into dress up just yet, but these would be an excellent way to get his imagination going!

  6. Dress up is the favorite activity in this house from my 8 year old to my 1 year old. They request costumes for gifts at Christmas and birthdays. Their favorites are actually the costumes that they just make up by mixing different costumes.

  7. not much…just his spider man Halloween costume. So this would be great for my little 3 year old superhero!

  8. Princess dresses and ballet shoes get the most use here!
