$50 Boden Gift Card Giveaway and Boden Discount Code

Right after my first son was born, four years ago, I realized very quickly how difficult it could be to shop for quality boy's clothing. After all, it's no secret that in most stores the girl's section outnumbers the boy's section in both quantity and options nearly 10 to 1. 

After much, shall we call it "market research," I manged to find a handful of go-to retailers that I could count on to make not only quality pieces of clothing for boys but also pieces that were durable, fun and fit well. 

I first introduced you to mini Boden, one of my absolute favorite places to shop for little boys, back when I wrote a post titled Where To Shop For Boy's Clothing. I started shopping here, as I mentioned earlier, back when my first son was born four years ago and year after year, season after season, there is no shortage of pieces that I find and immediately fall in love with.


A couple of tips when shopping Boden (Men, Women and Maternity), mini Boden (Kid's clothing) or Johnnie Boden (Teen clothing): 

1. Never shop without a discount code. Speaking of discount codes, with the keycode N6W5, ILYMTC readers can take 25% off everything plus free shipping from now through June 28th. Additionally, for this week only, Boden is offering 30% off women’s & girls’ dresses and 30% off men’s & boys’ pants and shorts. 

2. Check a garment's measurements before deciding on a size, as items tend to run a touch on the bigger side.

3. Although Boden is a U.K. based retailer, many mini Boden pieces are available in the USA at Nordstrom. What's more is that they will even price match during a promotion period.  

Now that I have 3 boys to dress these days, my love for Boden has naturally grown three-fold. Of all the places I shop for little boy's clothing, I will continue to shop Boden because of three reasons: the quality and construction of the fabrics, the bright bold colors and patterns, not to mention how easy it is to shop and maneuver the website. 


The quality of the clothing at Boden is undeniable. Proof of this lies in the fact that there are pieces worn by my first son that have been handed down to my middle child and will soon be worn by our newest addition. The colors never bleed and the pieces wash and wear well, better than many other brands of clothing on the market. 

For this reason alone I never mind investing in a purchase from Boden, whether it be for the boys or myself. 

Last month, the kind folks at Boden indulged my love of their brand by sending a few of my favorite pieces our way. They arrived just in time for temps to warm up and for us to throw the pieces in our suitcase and head out for our first trip to the family beach house.


When shopping Boden, I try to stock up on basic pieces that will not only pair well with what they already have in their closet but also pieces that will transition with them as the Summer season fades to Fall. That being said, one of the best go-to pieces from their collection is always the Jersey Baggies shorts. 




Paired with their Colourblock T-shirt, it's a match made in primary color and stripes heaven.



Since I am in that awkward soft and squishy place after having a baby, I couldn't help but pick out a tunic for myself, one of the Boden women's fashion staples. The cut, fit and fabric of their tunics is flattering on all body types (trust me, I've been many of them over the years) and whether I'm at my pre-pregnancy weight or just five weeks out from having a baby, their Printed Beach Thrown On is a must-have.




Want to what else I'm currently lusting over from the Boden Summer line? Check out my Boden Loves board on Pinterest.

  4. Oh my. My babes have several pieces from Boden as well, I guess I never really knew that they sold adult clothing LOL as I always shopped mini Boden. I love the Daisy dress for my little girl and the flutter dress for my littlest girl:) Course I am sure there are a ton of adult pieces I could wear too - as my closet def needs some updating.
