Comfort and Style in the Kitchen Giveaway


Can you believe it’s been two weeks since I started my Holiday Gift Guide? Two full weeks of totally awesome gift ideas and killer giveaways!

Today is the last day, and I am so excited to share two great gift ideas for those who love comfort and style in the kitchen.

Being that I work in the kitchen, I am constantly on my feet. My kitchen is all tile and it can put a lot of pressure on my lower back when I am spending time cooking for my family. You know what I’m talking about… that instant relief once you sit down from making dinner, only to have to get up again because your son is asking for more milk. {think: mom in ‘The Christmas Story’}

It’s tiring.

Well, it was… not anymore thanks to my Gel Pro Mat!

It’s like standing on a sweet, fluffy pillow.

It’s so soft and comfortable that even my kids will sit next to me while I am in the kitchen. My husband and I agree that we need to get enough Gel Pro Mats to cover our entire kitchen!

They have all sorts of adorable patterns available. Even ones called Ergo Comfort Rugs that have removable cloth covers that can be machine washed. The one I have is their Gel Pro Mat in Crocodile Truffle. There are so many patterns and styles that you’re sure to find the right one for your kitchen.

Here is the BONUS…

I am here to give you an insider secret… Gel Pro Mats is have a site-wide sale on Cyber Monday (November 26th), for 25% off everything!!! WHOA!!! 

So now that you have your comfort… let’s talk about style…

Have you ever heard of Jessie Steele Aprons? They are undoubtedly the most adorable aprons that you could possibly buy.

I can’t tell you how much I love this apron!

The material is perfect for cooking in the kitchen, nice and sturdy. You can be sure that messes wont bleed through. Not to mention how completely adorable and flattering it is to my figure. I love how it is high waist-ed, with a cute little ruffle at the bottom.

The pocket is very handy for putting your hand in… and also maybe a dish towel or an iPhone… It has so many cute details that you’ll feel so pretty while you’re in the kitchen, and that is very important! I know exactly who is getting one of these cute aprons for Christmas, and I know she will love it.

Would you like one too?

Jessie Steele is generously giving away this cute Bib Courtney Quilted Floral Apron {$34 value} to one lucky I Wash…You Dry Reader!

So now you can cook in comfort AND style!

  1. as always another great idea on both the mat and apron. the floral apron looks stunning on you

  2. We have 1 gel pro mat and I end up moving it all over the kitchen so I can stand on it while I cook. :) These aprons are gorgeous!! I would love the “Bib Audrey Deco Dot Apron.” Thanks for the great giveaway! :)

  3. Wow, what great aprons! Almost too hard to pick just one favorite. Maybe the brown and pink polka dots or the Cafe Toile…or the cowgirl Annie! Thanks for offering the chance to win.

  4. Michelle Wright says:

  5. French Toile Gigi Apron. :-)

  6. I like the Cherry Cupcakes apron

  7. I love the aprons! I have two Flirty Aprons, but I still drool over the Jessie Steele aprons.

    I have the same problem in my tiled kitchen, but I have at least 4 places I frequently stand, and the placement of the mats would look awkward. I bought a pair of Dansko shoes instead and always wear them while I’m working in the kitchen. I’m a shoes person and don’t like going barefoot anyway. :) My husband has a standing desk he works at, though, and I’ve been thinking about getting him one of these mats.

  8. I love the hostess apron! Don’t have an apron and always make a big mess of my clothes while cooking. My husband always says I need an apron, but never have found a cute one! These are very cute and look like they would stand up to all my cooking! Want to get one of those Gel Pro mats for sure! My feet really start hurting while cooking and that makes my back start hurting!! Need more comfort in the kitchen!!

  9. I am partial to the brown and pink polka dot hostess apron.

  10. I love the Bib Courtney that you have on!!

  11. If I won, I would pick the Cottage Kitchen Rose Josephine for my wife.
