Gift Ideas for Mom From Cariloha Bamboo Clothes & Del Sol Color Change Review
If you’re looking for a gift for mom, your sister, daughter or any gal you know we’re happy to share some of our favorite gift ideas from Cariloha Bamboo and Del Sol Color Change! Mother’s Day came a few days early for me this year and of course I couldn’t be happier about it as I’ve had the chance to wear some soft and comfortable Carlioha bamboo clothes and when the sun came out I got to have fun with my Del Sol color changing t-shirts. Their products are great not only for Mother’s Day but any time of the year. They have more than just clothes too, you’ll definitely want to check it all out!
I received a wonderful selection of Cariloha bamboo clothes and Del Sol Color Change t-shirts and I have to say I love them all. There was a method to my madness of what I selected and why which I will share soon. Let’s start with the fabulous bamboo clothes. If you don’t know already bamboo clothing (and sheets, towels and more) are so softy and silky that it’s just wonderful to touch and feel. Not only that material made of bamboo has antimicrobial qualities! So you can give the gift of bamboo to your loved ones or yourself and know that it’s a sustainable product that feels so soft, keeps you cool and just looks good!
I have to say bamboo clothes can not be beat when it comes to softness and keeping you cool. One of my new favorite items is the Genesis Bamboo dress. It’s soft like all the bamboo clothing, is a nice style and it’s very forgiving by hiding things we don’t want to show. Here’s me wearing my new dress a cardigan (first picture above is the dress without a cardigan). I got the dress in a large, as I don’t like dresses tight, it is stretchy and I have lots of room but I think it fits just right. I normally wear about a size 10 at the largest.
I wanted a dress I could wear during the day and evening, was comfortable but could be dressed up if need be and this Cariloha Genesis bamboo dress met all that criteria. I wanted some bamboo clothes for this summer with the warmer weather as material made of bamboo is known for it’s cooling effects. This dress along with the t-shirts and Celeste tank that I got from Cariloha will not only be worn over the summer, they will be staples in my suitcase when I go to a conference in San Jose and then off to Disneyland to meet up with my family for our vacation.
Here’s some of the other awesome Cariloha bamboo clothes that I’ve added to my wardrobe. I figured you didn’t want to see me modelling everything LOL.
You can’t have bamboo clothes without having socks in your collection and the softy socks are wonderful for wearing at home, they keep my feet cozy without overheating them. They’ll be in my suitcase too even for the summer as they’ll be my slippers when I’m away 🙂 The Celeste tank top is a little dressier than regular tank tops and it’s a nice flowing tank, not tight, however I wish it had a padded bust then we wouldn’t want to worry about what to wear underneath. So yes you do need a strapless bra or clear or white straps whatever you prefer either way it’s worth it. Every suitcase and wardrobe for that matter needs a soft and comfy t-shirt so Aloha to my bamboo t-shirt. I got this t-shirt in a size X-large as they are quite fitted and I prefer mine t-shirts to be a bit loose. I’m happy I got X-Large as Large would have been too fitted for me. They do have some stretch however so you have some room to play with.
Now let’s talk about the fun Del Sol Color Change t-shirts I selected. Remember I said there was a method to my madness. So that vacation to Disneyland I mentioned, well we’re also hitting universal studios. You know what it’s like while on vacation especially theme parks the kids and yes even the adults always want souvenirs. Well I’ve trumped those souvenirs and got these t-shirts in advance so that 1) souvenirs done and no having to waste time in theme park stores, 2) these are way cooler, hello they change color!
Here’s me in my Tinkerbell t-shirt because who doesn’t love Tinkerbell she’s always been a favorite with myself and my daughter.
Here’s what my Tinkerbell shirt looks like before it’s been out in the sun
Now I do have to mention that the shirts are a bit more on the fitted side and I prefer to have a little extra room. The shirts do have a lot of stretch to them and they are a soft cotton. I normally take anywhere from a size 8-10 or medium to large at most but this one I got in X-Large so something to think about when selecting your size.
I also decided to get not only myself some t-shirts but my daughter too because let’s face it we moms are always thinking of our kids and again now she doesn’t have to get a t-shirt in Disneyland this one is so cool. I got her the women’s x-small t-shirts as she’s 12 and not big on the princesses which is what was mostly available in Del Sol kids’ Disney shirts. My daughter is quite petite she still wears a kids size 10 clothing so that gives you a bit of an idea but the x-small t-shirts are perfect for her. They are long enough she can wear leggings with them if she wants but not so long it looks like a night gown. I got her the Mickey and Minnie one pictured above which she hasn’t seen yet, it’s a surprise it will be her souvenir when we get to Disneyland.
However she did get the Marvel t-shirt in advance which is for when we go visit Universal Studios during our family vacation. I think all of these t-shirts are way cooler than any you’d buy at the theme parks and we save time, maybe even a bit of money. Hard to compare since the ones there don’t change color. Here’s my cutie in her Captain America t-shirt 🙂 It was later in the evening so it was not dark out but no sun so it hasn’t changed color yet although I can see the blue starting to come in.
Here’s what this t-shirt looks like in full color, it usually only takes 15-20 minutes maximum in the sun before the patterns colors have fully changed.
I think we’re set for our wardrobe and even some pretty nice souvenirs for our family vacation and we’re definitely going to be dressed comfortably and keep cool with our Del Sol Color Change and Cariloha bamboo clothes!
So as I said if you’re ever looking for some gift ideas Cariloha Bamboo and Del Sol are the places to go for some fabulous gifts! My whole family loves them so they get our stamp of approval!
