We are excited to announce that we are now accepting submissions for our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide! We will be offering a series of guides this year, tailored to provide readers with the best ideas for those hard-to-shop-for gift recipients. We will also be offering feature opportunities for brands looking to stand out.
Our guides will each provide our top items for a recipient type (such as foodies, gardeners, etc.). We will determine the specific lists and curate accordingly based on our research and participating brands. We will also have a special feature series for kids’ products appropriate for grades K-5. As parents of elementary-aged kids, we know those gifts are commonly the biggest challenge for friends and family, as it can be difficult to find the perfect gift that will not be deemed “too babyish” or “too complicated/mature” by the kids!
We will be posting our gift guides here on StealsNDealsWithTSK as well as on our social media channels to our thousands of readers and followers between October 1 and December 20, 2015.
Participating brands will provide one unit of each product they wish to have included in the gift guide.
Featured brands will provide provide one unit of each product, as well as one unit for a reader giveaway.
