So, what does a Cuddledown mom send with her kiddo to college for his bed? OK, I admit it, maybe I went a little overboard; a featherbed (‘cause college mattresses are flat and gross) with a nice waterproof mattress pad over that – just in case… and it will protect him from dorm room “ickys” (like dust mites-and with recent outbreaks of bed bugs – a little extra protection doesn’t hurt), a nice set of sheets (not only because the aquamarine was on sale…a good boy color…but also because, with deep 18” pockets, they’ll fit over all the other stuff and will wash easily…if he washes them! I hope he washes them), a down comforter in “blanket warmth” (he’s a heater so a down blanket, being lighter, is perfect, and aren’t dorm rooms usually warm?) etc…etc…etc… Yes, there’s more but I’m already embarrassing myself! Or am I? He, too, thought I was nuts until all the kids on his floor wanted to test out his bed and (if I may just brag) who’s the most envied on his floor? My guy! So, I ask you…what can Mom do to help her college kid get off to a good start? And make sure they sleep well…if they sleep? Maybe I didn’t go overboard after all! I’m going to be proud of myself until the first girlfriend comes around, right? What kind of bedding did you send your kids/grandkids off to school with?
Matti has been a devoted bedding snob since 1988. In addition to reading in bed and sleeping, she tunes & repairs pianos, has climbed in the alps & himalaya, and competed in a triathlon. Everything is done with completion in mind and no records being set (which means slowly-but-surely). She is proud mom of 2 and devoted wife, of 25 years, to another bedding snob.
Wow! I can't believe the Monet fabric is still around! I remember when that 1991 cover came out - I was working for the company at the time and remember the first time I saw it. I think I might be IN that catalog, actually ... :) 20 years goes by so quickly.Liana on: Monet bedding – customer fave for 20+ years!
Hi I think this add shows a lot of humor and presents the products in a new brave way! Congrats to Cuddledown for that!! Why all the negative response on this? Why does Americans feel threatened by this quit so innocent picture? Why hesitate to have more humor in the bedroom??Bente on: Cuddledown’s “Naked Pillow” catalog caption contest
Great advice! The only way to really fail is to not try.Adjustabeds on: DIY Fail – when not to throw in the towel
