Keep Things Cool This Summer with the IcyBag Surprise Giveaway

It's official, I am melting in this sweltering heat! But I haven't lost all hope. I found something that can at least keep important items from melting...the IcyBag.

The IcyBag is a perfect bag to can keep makeup, medicine, sunscreen or snacks (just to name a few things) cool. The IcyBag is fully insulated and comes with a freezer gel pack so that its contents won't melt. And it's small enough to fit inside your baby or beach bag. It is perfect for beach days, golfing and family day trips. It comes in three different color options, including all black (shown below), which would be a great gift even for the macho-est man in your life.

And have no fear, the freezer gel pack is only 3 ounces so it is approved to carry on to an airplane. (How do I know this? I contacted the maker of the IcyBag and they responded within minutes to let me know it was safe to carry on. Now that is customer service!)

And lucky, lucky you! Thanks to the maker of the IcyBag, (2) lucky Houses, Couches and Babies readers will win an IcyBag.

Here's how to enter:
  • Check out the IcyBag website and post a comment right here telling us what feature you like best about the IcyBag.
  • In your comment, please be sure to include your name (or blogger name) as well as your city/state/country (anonymous comments will not be accepted; obviously because we won't know who you are!)
  • Post your comment by midnight PST on Monday, June 23rd.

The winner will be announced sometime shortly after June 23rd, so please keep checking back to see if you are a winner!

Good Luck!

During Summer break my 7 year old and I spend most days at the park so the feature I like the best is that it will keep my makeup nice and cool all day long.

I love the style, the gel packs that help keep everything cool and the sturdiness of the bags.

Great giveaway!!!!

I am sorry, I forgot to add where I live...got excited about writing in the post that I forgot one important piece of information. This is not a push for an extra entry by any means.

It's more convenient than traditional separate freezer packs.

Erica G said...

I like that you can take it ona plane!

cathy said...

wow this would sure help keep cold things cold. The temperatures were in the 90s today and it would help keep juice, milk, and snacks cold.

Missy said...

This would be perfect for keeping juice boxes and sippy cups cool in my diaper bag this summer. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

ezmerelda said...

This would be great for keeping insulin chilled on hot Texas summer days.

I have to use medicated eye drops that require medication, and I can't tell you how much of a pain they can be to haul around without taking up a bigger cooler - one with massive amounts of extra room... so this bag is absolutely PERFECT!

fangirl said...

The size for this little bag is perfect. I spend a lot of time outdoors or with my gear in my car. This will protect makeup, lotions, and medicines.

Annie said...

#1 Its brilliant

#2 Sammiches & drinks stay cool

#3 I could wear it upside down on my head if I were desperately hot and in no need of following fashion trends.

nancyrobster@gmail.com

K. Cleaver said...

This would be great to carry my son's medicine with me. His shots have to stay chilled and this would work. Right now I use a lunch bag with a hard ice pack in it. It's bulky (and ugly).

Anonymous said...

This is definitely a GREAT idea! I never thought of it before - but this would be great for my little one's medicine.

Molly C. said...

I love the fact that they can go anywhere- on an airplane, to the store as a diaper bag, to the zoo for snacks, etc.

Tricia Moreno said...

It's really important too keep your sunscreen from getting too hot, so this would work great in the summer to use in the car!

Amy W. said...

As a mom of two young children, I am constantly carrying around juice, snacks, etc. However, the complaint is always that their juice, cheese stick, whatever the snack may be is "not cold enough..." The icybag would be the perfect solution -- as it keeps things cooler. Plus, it comes in cute colors!!

Abigail said...

This bag is an act of genius. Even if I don't win, I think it just solved my sister's birthday present problem. She's diabetic and has to fly. This is a brilliant solution.

carolsue said...

I'd use it for snacks on car rides.
Great idea!

3boyzmom said...

the feature I like the best is that the gel pack is approved for airline use! Very convenient and useful for the hot CA sun here!!

judybrittle said...

what a great product. i bet it would work to stop a lighter from exploding in the heat. plus nothing worse than having a candy bar melt away.

This would be great to keep my daughter's insulin cool in the summer when we're out and about! I love it!

camper223 said...

I like the fact that it can go on airplanes,no excuse for son and daughter in law not to make the 1200 mile trip to Florida. Also another great feature is that it keeps items colder longer. My daughter in law is expecting their first child. and going to be breast feeding, with this she can pump, use the quick seal bags with a food bag sealer, then put in the icybag. Icybag will hold enough bags of milk to feed the baby for a few meals. Will make traveling and feeding baby more easier and comfortable for my son and daughter in law.
Thank you for a chance to win thia much needed item.

Now that my son is old enough,
(10), his new job is mowing the lawn. He also started mowing Nana's lawn, a real paying job! He is so proud of himself and when my husband takes him over there to "work", I send him off with a cold drink and a cool snack, so this thing would be perfect!!!

This is great! Why didn't anyone think about this before?! Where I grew up everything melts all year round whether its in your car, lying around the house or when your're on the go. Simple but good stuff!

Oh this is so perfect! Hubby *forces* me to ride with him on his Harley and then he says" No, we cannot stop for a drink, we must go on". HA! I would love it to keep cold, cold drinks in (and my lipstick that wouldn't melt!!!) and I would even share the drink, I guess.
