If you hadn’t picked up on this from my recent blog posts, I just returned from Florida. It’s a family tradition for the girls (my mom, sister, sister-in-law and me) to go down to Florida for the weekend prior to Thanksgiving to do a little Christmas shopping. There is a big outlet mall nearby in Bradenton and fun boutique shopping in St. Armands Circle.

Unfortunately this year two big outlet malls opened up in St. Louis which has our husbands asking – “do you really need to go to Florida to go outlet shopping?” The answer is still Y-E-S. We have a great time.

Anyway – while browsing the typical outlet mall shops I was looking for items that were great deals that could be embroidered, and came up with five gift ideas to share with you all. I am sure that many of you have an outlet mall nearby and know some of these stores I am referring to.

1) Oshkosh fleeces – You may recall a while back I embroidered a name onto a fleece as a little birthday gift for my son’s girlfriend.  The fleeces at Oshkosh are simple and cute – and at $9/each – you can stock up for birthday party gifts all winter

2) Oshkosh knit dresses – Oshkosh also has drop waist knit dresses for little girls in solid colors.  There were a bunch on the clearance rack that they were practically GIVING away.   These easy-to-wear dresses would look great with a personalized retro flower appliquéd on them.

3) Columbia fleece sweatshirts – Columbia had great, zip-up, hoodie, inexpensive fleeces for ladies  that were gathered around an empire waist.  They would look great with a single initial monogram. And the best feature – they were less than $20.

4) Carters baby stuff – lots of baby stuff.  Cheap.  Monogram a blanket, or make some year of the horse baby onesies for 2014 babes.

5) Vera Bradley totes – I, personally, am not a huge Vera Bradley, but I know A LOT of people are.  My sister picked up a few totes to embroider for the little girls she is gifting.   And I am seeing a lot of Vera Bradley monogrammed bags on my embroider Facebook boards.  This could be a great gift for ladies of all ages.

Well good luck with your holiday outlet shopping.  I’d love to see what you all are making!
