PackIt Love {giveaway}

I discovered PackIt through a friend a little of a year ago. I won a blog giveaway for their original Personal Cooler. When they heard I was expecting two babies, they graciously also included two of their smaller sized mini coolers too.

I use the Personal Cooler as a lunch bag for myself or as the bag to take Zach & Lucy’s 6 daycare bottles & food in. At 8″ x 10″ x 5″, it’s big enough while still fitting in our {giant} diaper bag along with their cloth diaper wet bags.

The Mini Cooler has become my go to so much that I asked for {& received!} a third as a Christmas gift. I take one every day to bring home my pumped bottles. Three 9oz tall Gerber bottles fit perfectly in the 8″ x 8″ x 3″ bag. I store the bag & bottles in my work mini fridge door through out the day then know my milk will stay cold while running errands & on the drive home in my PackIt. The mini will also hold three daycare bottles & a couple small baby food containers, so when we don’t use another PackIt cooler for daycare, we use two minis. I pack the Packits the night before so I rotate between the different sized bags.

I chatted again recently with PackIt as they just launched a couple new bags. My babies big bottles & ever increasing solids containers for daycare means we’ve started almost outgrowing our smaller PackIts. Just in time, PackIt sent me the Social Cooler. This bag is like my others that its gel lined so the bag itself goes right in the freezer then keeps bottles {or whatever you want} cool for up to 10 hours. But the social cooler is big! It’s a roomie 12″ x 13″ x 5″. Perfect for six bottles, four containers of baby food & room to spare. It’d also be great for a day at the beach or a family picnic lunch.

I won three PackIts in a long ago giveaway. I was sent the social cooler for purpose of this review but I was not compensated in any other way. Nor did their generosity sway my honest opinion on their awesome product.

    I love love love our personal coolers. We use them all the time!

    I would LOVE a social cooler because we go to the pool 5-7 times a week in summer. It’s within walking distance so we pack up dinner, snacks, drinks, etc almost every day! And with the heat in NC, you absolutely have to have cool drinks on hand.

    I absolutely need to get these ASAP! I’ve been using my trusty 31 tote and ice packs, but I need something that will stay cooler longer. I feel like a pack horse with all the food, milk and sundries I must take along to feed my 2.

    I need the social cooler for our pool trips and the personal cooler for going to church & being on the run. Choosing the pattern would be the hard part!

    I’d choose the Baby Bottle Cooler since I know I’ll need it in a few months, although I love the Shop Cooler for right now.

  4. I would pick the Floral Double Baby Bottle Bag because I love the floral print. So pretty!

    The mini cooler would be great for my soon-to-be kindergertners lunches next year! I love the designs!! Or the shop cooler would be nice too since we have a bit of a drive to/from the grocery store and our city just banned plastic grocery bags.

    Love my personal cooler bags. I have two already….but I think I need the social bag for picnics this summer! Such an ingenious idea!!!!!

  7. Sarah B says:

    I LOVE the idea of a gel lined bag that you can stick in the fridge/freezer…and then it’ll stay cool for 10 hours. Once Baby Ben arrives in August, the double baby bottle cooler (love the gender-neutral geometric shape print!) would come in super handy when I go back to work…toting bottles to/from my office/daycare, and keeping pumped breastmilk cold!

    These are awesome! I would love a personal cooler to bring my lunch to work in or carry snacks for the kids!

  9. Debbie Weishaar says:

    I would choose the Shop Cooler (grocery bag). I like that it can keep foods cold and I would be able to run a few other errands on the way home from the grocery store anytime without rushing home first to put the cold items in the fridge/freezer. Thanks for the chance to win.

  10. Denise Konkel says:

    The double baby bottle bag is more my style right now 😉 Love that it keeps milk refrigerated for up to 12 hours–how awesome!

    Thank you!

    I love the Viceroy black/white personal cooler. This would be perfect for summer and also for day trips! In the summer we go to the ocean (a few hours away) quite a bit so this would come in very handy!

  13. Dianne Hall says:

    These are pretty awesome! I love the wine cooler. I can think of a hundred places and occasions I could use it for haha.

  14. Nicki Joseph says:

    I love the baby bottle bag. Practical and with a cute design!

    I always notice these in Bed Bath & Beyond with their fun patterns! I’d love to win one. I think I’d go for the personal cooler.
