Carolina Pad Holiday Gift Sets Review and Giveaway

I have seen Carolina Pad on some of my favorite blogs, so when they asked me to host a product review and giveaway, I was thisclose to saying, "No, thank you." It's not that I'm not a fan, I just have a lot of reviews going on right now, and sometimes you have to be a little more selective than at other times.The only thing that stopped me was that I am a paper supply nut. Really, I always loved going back-to-school shopping. I must be a huge nerd, because there's not much better to me than a new, fresh notebook and a brand new pen. And let's not even talk about office supplies. Someone help me if I wander into an Office Depot!
Carolina Pad was generous enough to let me review a whole bunch of products from their Holiday Gift Sets. I received two notebooks, a 7-pocket hanging file, Stick-on notes/flags, and a flip notepad from the different collections. I was in a little bit of heaven when I opened the box. All of the products came in fun patterns and colors. It's so much more fun than your basic supplies. These are exactly the types of notebooks I would have used while I was in school.
The Carolina Pad Gift Sets are perfect gifts for teachers, coaches, babysitters, office colleagues, or yourself! :o) And what a great way to start the new semester of classes! I almost wish I was back in school.

Buy It:
You can find these Carolina Pad Gift Sets at Carolina Pad.
