Submit Your Request to Join Our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide!

My co-host, Life in the Lost World and I know that the holidays can be an endless source of frustration and anxiety for a lot of folks, especially the closer we get to said holidays. This year we would like to get a bit of a much needed head-start when it comes to what we like to refer to as the feeding frenzy, otherwise known as Christmas shopping. 

Are you interested in getting your brand, product or shop in front of a thousands of blog readers and social media followers? This years Holiday Gift Guide is the best opportunity you'll see all year to get your name out and promoted by potentially thousands of moms & wives who are passionate about bringing their families the best gifts they can during the holiday season.

The Holiday Gift Guide, which is co-hosted (as I mentioned before) by Life in the Lost world, is a super affordable and creative way to get your products seen by people who are buying the majority of gifts this holiday season-women! Women are the big gift givers, the ones who are scouring every retailer, strip mall and super store chain they can find and they make up the majority of gift buyers who will be out looking for the perfect gifts for their loved ones from the start of the season until the last checkout lane closes on Christmas Eve. 

Let the Milkwasted family take some of the stress out of your holiday marketing efforts by allowing us to increase your products visibility on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Google+. Partnering with Milkwasted and Life in the Lost World might just be the easier decision you make this gift buying season. 

If you would like to see your products featured in this years Gift Guide, please send your inquiries to and include the headline as "Holiday Gift Guide Submission". 

Please note: The Gift Guide will be launched November 1, 2015 and will run through December. The earlier your participation is confirmed and the products for review are received, the more promotion you can expect to receive. Additionally, reviews will be published on a first come first serve basis. All products must be received by December 1, 2015 to finalize placement in our Gift Guide. We will continue to promote our Gift Guide until January 5, 2015.
