Gingerbread lattes and pumpkin spiced candles…
Wintery dark nights and brisk, bright mornings…
Bing Crosby singing in the background while the smell of Christmas Pine delights my senses as I shop for friends and family…
The holiday season is upon us, and in fact we are just 35 days from Christmas. While I find it relatively easy to shop for my children, finding the perfect gift for friends and family can be challenging.
Collective Bias, Getting Gorgeous, and Party Bluprints Inc. just launched their fabulous Holiday Celebrations 2012 eguide, to help you find the perfect gift this season. Inside the guide, you’ll find some of the most popular items of the season from brands you know and love including Cookie’s Kids, Starbucks, searsStyle, Rio Soul, OtterBox, and more.
I recently shopped at Cookie’s Kids for some much needed outerwear for my daughter and found some adorable items at rock bottom prices. The site offers thousands of products from over 40 well-known brands including North Face, Carter’s, Guess, Levi’s and more. Check out the EGuide for a special discount code.
Are you hosting guests? Attending a holiday party? Check out searsStyle.com for affordable, on-trend fashions. Very soon, I’ll be sharing my own personal gift recommendations from Sears, but for now, “like” them on Facebook for an exclusive discount coupon.
My favorite way to accessorize an outfit is with shoes, and my husband can attest to my mild obsession with them. Comfort is as important as style, and even if I’m out with the kids or at the gym, I want shoes that will make me look and feel good. Rio Soul, featured in the guide, offers flexible, soft-sole, good-for-your-feet shoes in vibrant colors. I’ve only recently been introduced to the brand and a great way to check them out is with the exclusive 30% off + Free Shipping discount found in the guide.
I can’t tell you how many times my OtterBox has saved my iPhone, and when I get my upgraded version, I’ll be keeping it safe and secure with a new one. When I first purchased my OtterBox, it was only available in select colors. The brand has extended their options and now includes funky, fashionable prints. Check out the guide for more information about the styles offered and where to purchase OtterBox.
In any given week, you’ll find me at my local Starbucks at least 2-3 times, getting my java fix. The popular coffee shop has introduced a brand new Holiday Blend that I’ll be sampling and sharing with you soon! This sweet and spicy blend is a festive way to compliment your favorite dessert and is now available for a limited time at Sam’s Club.
What is unique about this guide is the fact that it includes Holiday recipes, entertaining tips, and the inside scoop on the hottest holiday decorating trends from Dawn and Elizabeth of Party Bluprints. This Candied Snickerdoodles recipe looks easy and delicious and would compliment a holiday party nicely.
As much as I enjoy family get-togethers, entertaining can be a bit stressful. Party Bluprints shares some practical tips for entertaining with ease!
And because you’ll likely be entertaining, hosting, or attending holiday gatherings, Audrey and Vera from Getting Gorgeous share their Top 5 Holiday Fashion Trends, Beauty Tips to help you shine, and their best tips on smart ways to shop and save.
This guide is fabulous and all-encompassing. Traditional holiday gift guides simply include a selection of product recommendations. I love the integration of recipes, entertaining tips, and fashion trends as well as the product suggestions and exclusive discounts. You can check out the entire guide here by clicking and flipping the pages. You can share it with family and friends via Twitter, Facebook, and email by clicking the envelope icon at the base of the guide.
