We are now accepting submissions for the 2016 Holiday Gift Guide!
It’s that time of the year again and I can’t believe the holidays are right around the corner! I for one love to start my shopping list early. I like helping my readers get ready to shop with my Holiday Gift Guide.
I am compiling a 2016 Holiday Gift Guide perfect for everyone’s shopping list. I like to include items for Kids, Tweens, Moms, Dads and more! The holidays are the busiest times for us as bloggers as we seeking out the newest products on the market to share with our readers, so that they can start crossing off those names on their Wish Lists. I would love to feature your company and products in my 2016 Holiday Gift Guide.

If you want your product included, please email email@example.com! Please use the subject line “Holiday Gift Guide Submission” and include your company name, product, and any photos you want featured in your pitch! Due to the number of inquiries typically received for a holiday gift guide, please allow 72 hours for an answer to your pitch. Media Kit available here.
I am accepting sponsors for reviews and/or giveaways from now until December 1st.
