Got a Great Grommet Idea? Enter Our Summer Solutions Contest

It's almost Memorial Day, the traditional kickoff of summer.   And in honor of the arrival of all things warm and wonderful, we're excited to announce our first-ever "Got a Great Grommet Idea?" contest.

We're always (and we mean always) looking for new Grommet ideas to share with our community.  As you know, our story is really simple...because it’s not about us. It’s about finding really fresh products and telling their stories. Those products, their creators, and the people who love them (the products, that is) are the real heroes at Daily Grommet.  This is your chance to be one of our heroes!

Just tell us about a summer product you love -- or a product that solves a summertime problem -- and we'll pick our favorite idea. The winner will receive two of our most popular Grommets:  an MnM Jada Millefiorie Belt (ARV $45) and a Luxe Link Purse Hook (ARV $35) for a Grommet prize package worth $80.  We'll announce the winner right here (we'll email you, too) -- and if we decide to feature it, you'll be part of the story we tell right here on our blog.

    I love the scents from Theme Fragrance. On Etsy, she has two shops:

    and

    Great scents for the whole year, at tremendous prices, and some scents that are very summery. I'm addicted.

    Ok, tooting my own horn here...

    During the summer, I go to lots of parties, BBQs, and pot lucks and never have to worry about getting my plates back. This is because I put the food on a Pass It On Plate, which is meant to travel from person to person. http://www.passitonplates.com/index.htm

    It's a great hostess gift that always gets a lot of attention. Each plate has a unique tracking number on the back, which is for that plate's online diary. People at the party love checking out the plate diary. This plate isn't one of mine, but I see by the message in its diary that it is going to a party today: http://passitonplates.blogspot.com/2007/07/200706150005.html

    When I give away a plate, I usually "gift wrap" them with a PlateWrap. Here's an example of a PlateWrap: http://passitonplatesblog.blogspot.com/2009/03/meeeowww-platewrap.html PlateWraps dress up the plate so the food gifts look more "gifty."

    Pass It On Plates would make a great Grommet because it's a fun new gift idea that connects people as it tells the story of its journey. It's also easy to demonstrate. Every time I bring these to a craft show, I do a brief demo and people understand the concept right away and get really excited about Pass It On Plates.

    I love the custom laptop sleeves from Byrd and Belle via their Etsy shop. They're unique and functional, and can be custom-made to support any laptop size. Perfect for long summer days when you want to do your work, your writing, and your internet surfing outside of the house!

    As a bonus, this one is made of recycled wool! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25994818

  • Kerri Anne Says:

    Oh, and I also love this cute organizer/file calender, that could totally double as a recipe box: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23066316

    It comes with 120 colorful, hand-made inserts to help keep you organized this summer, and the seller will stain the box a lighter color if you'd prefer. (Each box is hand-made from Poplar wood!)

    I love these because they make me think of summer bbq's and watching the sun go down with a nice glass of wine.
