Greetings everyone!

 

We are excited to roll out a new feature on our website!

 

Have you ever wanted to send your family The Story of the World, but don't want to buy it and ship it there yourself? Have you ever wanted to surprise a homeschooling friend with a new textbook they didn't even know was out yet?

 

With the new gifting feature on welltrainedmind.com, you can do just that!

 

But, of course, the real question when asking about gifts is: what kinds of gifts would you like to get?

 

A coffee mug? A hat? A widget? A lump of coal? A fancy kilt? Tell us what kind of gift you would most like to receive from the Well-Trained Mind store! Vote below in the pool and be entered to win a brand-new gift from us: the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Companion Reader bundle!

 

Vote for as many products as you like and comment to let us know you voted!

Hi Kevin!

I didn't vote because I don't need any of that, but I'd love to be able to give curriculum, so thanks for the ability to do so!

I voted for three. Lacking more specifics on the individual gifts, I would put them in the following order of desirability:

1) power bank 1

2) backpack (preferably with a laptop compartment that would hold a standard 15.6" laptop, since many don't)

3) tote bag with white logo

These are awesome! I'd love to have something with your logo on it! I voted for the water bottle/coffee cup, water bottle, tote bag (white logo), and the backpack.

I'm going for the coffee cup (because kids..hello), water bottle (live in a desert), and power bank (I like the tree better). In that order. Priorities.

 

I might have voted for the totes if I could tell what they were made of. If it's that flimsy recycled plastic stuff most of them are made of I'll pass. They can't stand the weight of the books I haul around.

I voted for the stress ball & water bottle. I have way more tote bags than I can use on a daily basis & ditto what SilverMoon said about the flimsy material being not worth it. I use the ones that are made from sturdy stuff and let my kids use the others to tote things to and from the playground & library.

 

I had no idea what a power bank was until I saw the picture & have no use for one, so I didn't vote for either. That might reinforce the idea that I'm counter-cultural & strange, but I'm okay with that.

I didn't see the kilt in the voting list.  You need to add kilts.  Because kilts.

 

 

Has TWTM gotten it's own tartan?

Power bank here. If it could also dispense caffeine pills then it could charge me and my devices at the same time. That would be handy for the days I spend two hours at the library waiting for kid-class to end.

I voted for the water bottle/coffee cup and the power bank.  I would LOVE a WTM coffee mug....and a bumper sticker! Wouldn't that be fun, to see one of those going down the highway?

I didn't vote some looked fun......

 

I have most of WTM recommend books, but I have never bought directly from Peace Hill because of the exchange of currency and international shipping.

While the inside joke versions are cute, I'd prefer if the items had "Well-Trained Mind" on them. When I bring my Peace Hill Press tote bag to the library, I hope someone will do a Google search out of curiosity and that it will give them confidence that hey, that family homeschools and they seem OK, maybe we could look into that as a valid option. Or, if they recognize the name that they'll feel welcome to come talk to us.
Also, I second the suggestion that the tote bags be made of sturdy enough material to hold a decent number of books :)

I voted for the tote bag with white logo, but I think books and audios make much better gifts 😀

I'd put a bumper sticker on my deck fence with the other stickers and signs. For my car, it would need to be a window decal, which I would LOVE.

I voted for the coffee mug and back pack. I can't live without coffee and I always have a bag on hand for library books or kids' stuff, so both would be loved!
