Welcome to the home of the Holiday Gift Guide here on Six Time Mommy. 2016 will be the second year and I look forward to sharing all the amazing products I’ve tried over the past year that I think will be an amazing addition to your Holiday shopping list!
NOT YOUR AVERAGE GIFT GUIDE:
This Holiday Gift Guide won’t be like the others. This gift guide will only contain products I’ve used personally here on Six Time Mommy, and think would make an AMAZING gift this Holiday season. I’ve reviewed many products on Six Time Mommy, all of which I love for very different reasons – but this guide is going to focus on strictly the Holidays and which products I think would make the absolute BEST gifts.
This year the categories are: Kids & Baby, Tweens & Teens, For Him, For Her, and Home.
If I haven’t reviewed your products yet and you’d like your product to be considered for Six Time Mommy’s 1st Holiday Must Have Guide please contact me asap! email@example.com (please note: I am in Canada)
