Going back to school with Gap, and a nice shiny Gap gift card from us to you.

We like back to school shopping for kids, obviously. And we like giving things away. So we’re super excited that our sponsor Gap is hosting an amazing event in more than a dozen of their stores–and letting us give one of our readers a $200 to spend with them. Whoo!

As part of the Gap Back to Cool Event, you buy one pair of Gap Kids 1969 Premium Jeans, and get a second pair at 50% off. Smart, because as we parents know, when you find something that fits your kids perfectly, you get more than one. 

What’s more, they’ll customize the new jeans for free with designs from Cat Seto of Ferme a Papier and the co-author of Mom, Inc. so your kid has something super special for that first day.
