It’s that time of year again. The holiday season is upon us and with it comes the plethora of media attacks on our unfortunate need to buy gifts for the Heroes and SheHeroes in our lives. If you’re anything like me you may be feeling slightly overwhelmed at the commercialism of it all and the serious lack of good empowering gifts out there in the big box stores we all usually end up shopping in.
It was that overwhelming feeling that made me think about all the great merchandise available through many of our favorite websites that not only offer strong empowering gifts for SheHeroes and Heroes, but are mainly women owned small businesses who could benefit and use your business a lot more than any of the big box stores in your neighborhood.
So what better way to do your Christmas shopping than buy purchasing gifts that will not only empower your SheHeroes but also empower some strong women owned small businesses?
Well here it is, the first annual SheHeroes Holiday Gift Guide!
We took a handful of our favorite websites and products to create the ultimate empowering gift guide just for our SheHeroes readers.
Our fabulous list of places to shop include,
- Pigtail Pals – Use the Special Discount Code gifts15 for 15% off of the entire shop through Dec 31, 2011!
