Win an Unboring Nintendo DS Case by BagEnvy

It's just a matter of time before Nick and Henry start asking for a Nintendo DS, and when we do eventually cave in and buy one (no use kidding ourselves), I will definitely pick up an adorable DS case by BagEnvy to keep everything organized.

BagEnvy carries awesome DS/DS Lite cases in boy-friendly styles like the BOYS ROCK electric guitar print ($15.00), left, that has cool black and white contrasting fabric inside. BagEnvy's cases are great quality, fasten with Velcro, and are the perfect "fashion" accessory for any gamer. They keep everything neat with straps inside to hold the DS system securely, 8 slots for game cartridges and loops for the stylus. And they can be customized to hold more games and even a charger. They fit the DS original, Lite and DSi.

We have a blue BOYS ROCK electric guitar Nintendo DS/DS Lite case from BagEnvy up for grabs! Entering is easy! Just browse BagEnvy's collection of Nintendo DS cases, and e-mail with BAGENVY in the subject line and tell us your favorite style. We'll pick one lucky Unboring Boys reader at random March 25th. U.S. residents only, please. Good luck! Psst! BagEnvy carries some chic pieces for moms like iPod and cell phone cases in gorgeous prints so check those out too.

Fun for Earthlings: Alien Mittens from Saint Reagan's Hollow

Snowmageddon, snowpocalypse, snowtorious, in Northern Virginia we've had almost 50 inches of snow so far this winter. And after power outages, endless snow shoveling, school cancellations, and being stuck inside with two cranky 6-year-old boys, I'll scream if one more snowflake falls from the sky.

But these awesome hand-knitted wool alien mittens from Saint Reagan's Hollow ($24.99) give me the strength to make it through the rest of the winter because they are just SO unique and fun. Boys of any age--Dads too--will love them! If your unboring boy isn't into aliens, check out the brown T-Rex mittens, complete with felt claws. Winter's not over yet (sigh). So now's the perfect time to replace those mismatched and worn-out mittens with some cool ones that your boy will love to wear and that will bring a smile to your face even when school's out again and the neighborhood is impassable with no snow plow in sight.
