T. Hee Greetings and Gifts: A Shoppers Paradise

There are only 73 days left until Christmas. There. I said it.

Oh, it may still be 90 degrees outside, but trust me, your kids already have visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads.  Walk into any department store or  a Target and they are already playing a Muzak-version of "White Christmas".

To help get shoppers into holiday shopping mode, my marketing firm worked with T. Hee Greetings and Gifts to host a blogger party on October 2 to help kick off the holiday season and create some buzz for this brand.  Because who knows better how to create a blogger event... than a blogger?!

We invited Mommy blogger extraordinaire Holly Homer from She Is Dallas to be our hostess-with-the-mostess. Holly did an amazing job, greeting everyone with a glass of wine and a Vanna-like wave as guests entered a vast wonderland of gifts.  Guests like Ron Corning from WFAA's Daybreak, Jamie Roubinek, Becky Branch, Shannon Byrann and Kindra Meyers had a great time munching and sipping vino as they wandered the store getting great ideas for their holiday shopping. Invited bloggers were encouraged to find their 5 favorite things to incorporate into a blog post for a chance to win some fabulous prizes.  The best part of the night was that every guest left with a sweet swag bag full of goodies.  Here are a few things my friends might see in their stockings this year:

Top: Insulated personalized coffee mugs ($19.95), Cookie or Candy Tins with Personalized Labels ($3 to $36 depending on size and qty.) Bottom: College Christmas Tree Ornaments ($14.99) Insulated plastic Wine Glass or what I call a Sippy Cup for Mommy Juice ($14.95)
