Van Heusen #GiveAShirt

Van Heusen is asking consumers a question this holiday season — who do they #GiveAShirt about? Van Heusen has partnered with the non-profit philanthropic organization Career Gear, which provides professional clothing, mentoring and life-skills to help economically disadvantaged men, challenging consumers to (quite literally) #GiveAShirt. Beginning on November 3, 2014 and ending on January 4, 2015, every time a consumer uses the hashtag #GiveAShirt on any of their social channels – Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, Van Heusen will donate a dress shirt to Career Gear, up to 10,000 shirts.

Van Heusen calls themselves the Institute of Style, and they are opening the doors of their Institute of Style because they #GiveAShirt this holiday season. Van Heusen prepares their customers for game changing moments in their lives — interviews, first dates, meeting the parents, holidays, etc. — they want to pass on this look good and feel more confident to people everywhere.

There is a daily prizing of a free Van Heusen shirt for every person that uses the hashtag and tags a friend on social media. All of those entrants are entered in the grand prize, a “New York Football Experience,” including:

  • Round trip airfare for two to New York, NY
    Two nights hotel stay
    Invitation to attend a football game
    Autographed football memorabilia
    $500 Van Heusen gift card

Tweet or Instagram who you #GiveAShirt about and tag your friend to ‘pass it forward’ and continue the social nomination. You can even make a video, too! All rules and regulations are at vanheusen.com/giveashirt

For more than 60 years Hickory Farms gifts have been a classic holiday tradition that brings family and friends together. Many of us have distinct memories of Hickory Farms at our holiday gatherings; Hickory Farms is very proud to be a part of those nostalgic moments and continues to focus on and celebrate its long heritage of tradition and authentic holiday memories. They not only embrace passing down traditions through generations of families, but also creating new traditions and sharing them with loved ones. While you’re looking for that “perfect” gift for the special people on your list this season, turn to Hickory Farms. They offer a variety of specialty foods and holiday food gifts that are perfect for any budget and for everyone on your list this year – neighbors, friends, teachers, coaches, babysitters, family, etc. The gift options are not only beautifully presented, but also taste delicious. This year Hickory Farms is proud to introduce its first ever Signature Chocolate Collection. The 1lb chocolate assortment offers the true taste of American confectionary craftsmanship. Each piece is cooked in small batches using the finest ingredients and paired with premium milk or dark chocolate. YUM!!

An additional and special reason to gift from Hickory Farms this season is that they support the Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. Share Our Strength is the leading non-profit organization working to end childhood hunger in America by 2015. To date, the combined support of Hickory Farms and their valuable customers have raised more than $3.3 million. These contributions help provide funding for summer meal programs, emergency food assistance, nutrition education, holiday charitable giving and long-term solutions for families in need. For each Party Planner gift box sold this holiday season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign.

Also, something that we love is that Hickory Farms has 5 products that they offer free shipping to military APO and FPO addresses, including the “Festive Cheese Sampler” gift basket and “Beef Hearty Hickory” basket.

Sleep Safe With The Epic Crib From Delta Children (PLUS GIVEAWAY)

delta crib

I am so excited to talk about the Delta Children crib line — specifically for two reasons. ONE because I believe in the brand. My goddaughter has this fabulous set in her room and I know firsthand that this company takes pride in the build out of its products. Not only are these pieces unbelievable chic and great to look at, but they go through stringent testing that goes above and beyond all government requirements. And TWO… I’m giving an Epic Crib from Delta Children AWAY at the end of this post! Oh my goodness! Can you stand it? Are you looking for a new crib? Well, you’ve come to the right place. More on that in a bit.

Delta Children is a 45+ year old family business based in New York. It was founded by Louis Shamie and today is run by his sons Joseph and Sam Shamie. It is the leading crib, toddler and nursery manufacturer in the world—selling in over 20 countries. Before I get into the DESIGN of their cribs, I do want to talk about how much parents rely on “safe sleep”. We bring our babies home and we place them in their cribs and want what is absolutely best for them during those hours of separation. Delta Children has 8 safety test labs worldwide, including one based in NJ. These locations are where the crib safety tests take place.  The brand worked closely with the CPSC to develop the newest crib legislations, holds 3 ASTM committee chairs and are board members of the JPMA. In other words, they take safety very seriously.

But Delta Children also thinks design is equally as important and their styles are not only on trend and chic as can be, but they will stand the test of time. Their color shades are modern, their lines are sleek and your child’s bedroom will look magazine ready with this piece as the centerpiece.

Don’t you just love convertible pieces? I know with my three children, I made sure to purchase pieces that would grow with them as they aged. It made it so easy for me to just adjust my crib whenever my kids were ready to step up to the next level of sleep and security. This investment will stay with you as long as you want it to!

Details:

  • Converts from a crib to a toddler bed, to a daybed and to a full size bed with headboard (Toddler Guardrail and Crib Conversion Rails sold separately)
  • 3 Position mattress height adjustment
