2016 Holiday Gift Guide - Submissions

2016 Holiday Gift Guide – Accepting Submissions


The 2016 holidays may seem like their light years away but the truth is they’ll be here before you or I even know it. Do you know how your brand will be reaching consumers this year? The Mommy Mix is pleased to announce we are now accepting submissions for our third annual Holiday Gift Guide in the following categories:

  • For Her
  • For Him
  • For Kids
  • For The Home

What Kind Of Exposure Will Your Brand Receive

  • A full post featuring your product plus social media exposure
  • Inclusion on The 2016 Holiday Gift Guide Round-up Page
  • Inclusion on The 2016 Holiday Gift Guide Pinterest Board
  • Inclusion in a special ‘The Mommy Mix 2016 Holiday Gift Guide’ newsletter
  • Social Media exposure including 1 tweet and 1 Facebook post with a link directed to where to buy your product

Please note: Custom packages are also available upon request. For example: You can choose just one or a few of the options above, however the package above is the best deal. Please inquire for fees.

The gift guide will start on November 1st and will be promoted until December 20th.  Features will be written on a first come first serve basis and all products must be received by December 1st.

All features will be written with 100% honesty, either with my opinion, my husbands or with help from my little assistants – Lucas 8-years-old and Colton 4-years-old.  Features can be written with or without product.  A review will be FREE of charge with full-sized, non-returnable product(s) with a minimum retail value.  If the product you wish to be featured does not meet the minimum requirement the remainder could be made with a payment or multiple products equaling the remainder amount.  If you wish to have your products featured without sending any items for review a sponsored post fee is required.

You will have to provide at least one hi-res image of each product you would like featured to include in the round-up. All features will have 1 to 2 no-follow links of your choosing and will include photos taken by myself and any photos you wish to add.

Include A Giveaway For More Brand Exposure

I highly recommend including a giveaway with your feature in order to gain more exposure, not just for the product being featured but to your brand as a whole.  All giveaways will include 2 links to follow and/or subscribe to your email lists as well as social media accounts of your choosing (not mandatory), giving my readers additional entries when they do so.  For further publicity I will be adding giveaways to any forums or giveaway websites that I am a member of. Giveaways are always FREE of charge with any feature but can also be done without for a small fee.

Please note:  All reviews/giveaways will be done on a first come basis, the sooner your product is received the more exposure it will get.  The giveaway can be open to US or Worldwide but this is not a requirement, however it MUST be open to Canada.  You will be responsible for the shipping, this includes any shipping and/or duty fees of all items from the review and the prizes. 

All submissions will be taken into careful consideration. If you have any questions or you would like to submit a product, please do so using the form below or contact me at themommymix@gmail.com and write “Holiday Gift Guide Submission” in the subject line. Media kit and rates available upon request.
