Norwalk, CT (Vocus) November 25, 2008
Girlawhirl.com, an online magazine for busy women, has always been the place to turn for great gift ideas. But this year, Girlawhirl Gift Guides are even better, because in addition to budget friendly suggestions, special deals and discounts will be incorporated into them.
Since its launch in September 2005, Gift Guides have been an integral part of the girlawhirl.com editorial offering. Whether it’s just a little something to bring to a dinner party or a gift to thank a teacher at the end of the school year, girlawhirl.com editors work year round to make sure that readers never find themselves in a bind when it comes to gift giving.
And when the holidays arrive, Gift Guides take center stage on girlawhirl.com. This year, Gift Guides will be published daily – including Saturdays and Sundays – from Friday, November 28 through December 24, 2008. A different kind of gift giving situation – from the office grab bag to the best food gifts and even good mood gifts – or type of recipient is featured on each, making girlawhirl.com's gift guide offering one of the most diverse on the Web.
"Readers love the holiday gift guides," says girlawhirl.com co-founder Linda LaSala. "We get the best feedback about how we helped readers find just the right gift for someone who’s usually difficult to buy for – like their boss, their biggest client and even their babysitter. Every year we try to make the Gift Guides better, and this year we're incorporating special discounts wherever possible."
Some of the exclusive discounts Girlawhirl’s got lined up for her readers include:
10% off online orders at VosgesChocolates.com
15% off jewelry from MelissaJoyManning.com
50% off handbags and accessories at Flote.net
15% off at PatriciaField.com
30% off super soft leather purses from HelenadeNatalio.com
10% discount on gourmet jams and granola at Spoonnyc.com
15% discount on hand made sweaters at Souchi.com
15% discount from Recchiuti Confections at Recchiuti.com
10% off stationary, gift tags and invitations at SarahDrakeDesign.com
"Once the Gift Guides start appearing on the site, we'll pull together all the exclusive discounts with others that we've culled from the web and list them in one place to make it easy for our readers to find," adds LaSala. "There's also a Don't Blow the Budget item - which is typically priced under $25 - on every gift guide, because there's no need to spend a lot to find a great gift."
In addition to plenty of quick click-throughs, so readers can shop online from each gift guide, this is the first year that advertising space has been incorporated into girlawhirl.com Gift Guides. Ads from merchants, including featured sponsor Jockey International, Inc. and others such as Barrons Catalog, Numi Organic Tea and Gaiam will appear across the bottom of each Girlawhirl Gift Guide.
A lifestyle e-zine for busy women ages 24-45, Girlawhirl.com was founded in 2005 by fashion industry executives, Marlen Horn and Linda LaSala. As LaSala's alter ego, Girlawhirl's become an internet friend women can count on to share her fabulous finds with readers. Girlawhirl.com offers fresh, upbeat editorial content to a global network of hundreds of thousands of hungry fashionistas whose interests naturally migrate from fashion into all kinds of lifestyle trends. Girlawhirl.com covers a wide range of topics, from fun and functional - but never outrageously priced – fashion trends and beauty products to friendship tips, eco friendly ideas and work-life balance, to fitness and healthy eating, home design and, of course, travel. There's even an online shopping mall and computer based to do lists, grocery lists, shopping lists, outfit planning lists and itinerary tracking lists at girlawhirl.com to keep readers organized and to make online shopping fast and easy. And, each year, she prides herself on having the very best giveaways and charity promotions, including this year's Girlawhirl charity: water challenge. For more: go to http://www.girlawhirl.com.
