The "Holiday Celebrations 2012 eGuide" on How to Make the Holidays Special (#HolidayGuide #CBias)

We see Holiday gift guides everywhere we turn this time of year, but what we really need is a Holiday e-guide that covers everything from Holiday entertaining to Holiday fashions to Holiday shopping.  The Holiday Celebrations 2012 eGuide does exactly just that.  What I like most about this guide is that it is designed with the average household in mind.  It includes tips, special offers, free shipping offers, and exclusive coupons from brands we all know and trust, such as searsStyle™, Cookie’s® Kids, Tyson®, Pepperidge Farm®, Colgate®, Starbucks®, and Nivea®, as well as from new ones such as Rio Soul and OtterBox®.  Let's face it . . . it is enjoyable to read magazines about how celebrities decorate their homes, how they dress, and what they gift for the Holidays, but in the end it really is not helpful to the average family.

Take a few minutes to look through the Holiday Celebrations 2012 eGuide below.  All you need to do is click on it.  If you find the guide to be helpful, you can share it with your friends and family via email, Facebook, and Twitter by using the quick share button located at the bottom of the guide.

A few of my favorite things . . . 

Two items featured in the Holiday guide that would make a perfect pair is the Starbucks Holiday Blend coffee (suggested by Elizabeth of Party Blu Prints and available at Sam's Club while supplies last) and the Pepperidge Farm Milano Mini Candy Cane cookies (suggested by Audrey of Getting Gorgeous and exclusively available in Target stores for a limited time).  Not only would this pair be perfect to serve to your own guests, but they would make wonderful additions to any gift basket you may be putting together for your neighbors or for a hostess gift.

Vera of Getting Gorgeous suggests these Tyson Any'tizers Bruschetta in Chicken & Bacon.  I have to say that she had me at "bacon."  These look so good and would be perfect to serve to your own guest or to bring with you to any Holiday events you may be attending.  These appetizers will be available at all Walmart stores from the end of November through Christmas Eve.

We all know it is a challenge to dress the whole family up for the Holidays without overspending, so the holiday style specials offered in this guide will truly come in handy.  Take a closer look to find out how you can receive 20% off at and snag Free Shipping plus a free North Face backpack from Cookie's Kids.

The last thing I want to share can be found at the very end of the Holiday guide.  With all the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy this fall, that is just one more important reason to want to give to those who are less fortunate during the Holidays.  I think the idea about holding a Holiday Art Auction during your Holiday party is a fun and innovative way to raise money for the worthy cause of your choice.  It is also a way for the children in your life to show off their artwork and to feel proud when their artwork has been sold to one of the party guests.
