Spruce Up Your Kids’ Room With This VTech Gift Basket (US & CAN)

VTech Gift Basket Giveaway

Can I just tell you that I am having so much fun being able to offer you all so many fabulous prizes during my 2012 Holiday Gift Guide?! Today’s feature is one that you can use to organize your office space, or even better; Gift this basket to one of your kids to spruce up their room from drab to fab with these fun tools. With school in full swing, I have come face-to-face with the battle of homework and organization. I find myself battling organization every school year, but this year I am determined to stay on top of it.

VTech has thought of some great items to make your kids’ room fabulous for those study times. This super fun VTech Gift Basket comes with the following items:

  • Storage bin
  • Blue lap desk work station
  • Blue dry erase picture frame
  • Blue headphones
  • Alarm clock and music player
  • Desktop magnetic board
  • Colorful wall shelf
  • VTech design phone in blue

The older my kids get, the more time they spend in their bedrooms. As a teenager and even pre-teen, I remember doing most of my homework in my bedroom. Why not give your teens and pre-teens a few tools to help them succeed, and perhaps enjoy their time doing it? The alarm clock/music player can serve multiple purposes – the alarm to teach one to be punctual, and the music to help loosen up study time a bit! I don’t think my kids are quite old enough for a telephone in their bedroom, but we’ll be there before we know it! I remember anxiously waiting for the day I could have my own phone! What do you think – are your kids old enough to have their own phone? I think it can be a wonderful thing when boundaries and rules are set.

One Clever Housewife reader will win the pictured VTech Gift Basket. This giveaway will end at 12:01am ET on 11/13. To enter, fill out the rafflecopter below. All entries will be verified. Giveaway open to US & Canada.

    I do not like to talk on the phone, the same as I dont like to answer the door. There’s no way to prepare for how much or what kind of energy you will need to deal with whoever it is. If I know who it is and I feel like I have the energy I’ll answer, but usually call back on my own time, when I know I wont be drained “)

  55. Courtney says

    The kids love the phone as much as I did when I was young; it’s surprising, with all the other tools they have at their disposal. I think I would have been nuts for Skype and texting in my teens.

  58. krista grandstaff says

    I talk on the phone when someone calls me…lol..other than that, it really never occurs to me to pick it up and call anyone. My kids, however, are on the phone non stop… the older ones have cell phones ( I don’t! ) but the 12 yr old doesn’t have one yet, so she lives on the phone from the moment she gets home from school… :)

  59. Angie B says

    The best part for me is connecting with friends and family on the phone. I have family spread out in several states, and dear friends all over the map, and speaking to them via the phone is more of a personal touch. Texting helps me when I want to share a brief tidbit here & there too! :)

  60. Dawn Sterner says

    I don’t really like to talk on the phone for a long time at once, but I talk to my daughter who lives in another state all the time. :)

  64. Mary Somerville says

    I don’t like to talk for very long, but I am on the phone often. I like keeping in the loop with friends and family!

  71. Heather A says

    I have two or three people I spend hours on the phone with when we do talk, but I find I prefer to e-mail these days.
