The VTech Ultimate Holiday Gift Basket #Giveaway



It's Veterans Day but the day wouldn't be complete without something special from us. In collaboration with VTech we want to present to you with the Ultimate Holiday Gift Basket! Sometimes it's not all baby on Growing Up Madison. Mommies and daddies need to treat themselves as well too! 
Being from military family as most of my readers know there are days when my mom is away for a very long time. This is also the case for most military families. It can be tough not just for her but also for us as well. Deployments can be anywhere from 9 - 18 months. So how do we keep in touch with her? How do you keep in touch with your deployed family member? Letters and phone calls! Phone calls can be far apart and few but the VTech CS6829 makes talking to your military family member possible. 

With a caller ID function, speakerphone (so the entire family can speak to her) and answering machine (in case we miss her calls) it's the only phone we need.  The VTech CS6829 is the perfect phone for keeping in touch with your military family member. Lets not forget about those relatives and friends living in those far away states and countries as well. I spend a lot of time speaking to my grandma in the Caribbean and I know she would enjoy having this as well. 

The VTech CS6829 can be purchased exclusively at Walmart

Now VTech Phones has decided to offer one of my lucky reader everything will need to enjoy and prepare for the holiday season: RV $300



·         VTech Cordless Answering System with Caller ID/Call Waiting (CS6829)
·         $50 Walmart Gift Card
