For The Baby:
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

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.

Can you believe that we’re already running smack into prime gift-giving season again? Time really does fly. It seems like only yesterday I was setting up the Christmas tree and putting out the kids’ presents. While I truly love this time of year (even the Northeast cold and snow), I have to say I am not a huge fan of the gift-giving part of it all. If you’re at all like me, it always seems that there are just too many people to gift yet too little insight into what they really want or need. It can really be nerve-racking trying to figure out the perfect gift.
Well, SheKnows Gift Picks is coming to the rescue!
Do you have hard-to-buy-for friends, or feel like you’ve just been rehashing the same old gifts time and time again? Do you want to make sure you get that perfect gift for the truly special people in your life? Well, here’s something I think you should try…it’s very easy. You simply connect to SheKnows Gift Picks using your Facebook account, select the friends you wish to see gift recommendations for, then BOO YEAH…instantly view personalized gift suggestions for them based on their interests!! How does it work so well? Simple…the recs are based on each person’s interests and likes on Facebook.
I used it for my wife and family..and it really worked well. As you can see below, if you know my wife, the categories and the goods are SPOT ON…from her loving Top Shop, to the cool boots, to even throwing a little tech in there. It really seems to know what works and and what each person would like. It even has a store map!
How great is that? It seems too good to be true…but it’s very true!! I have to say, it’s spot-on for my friends. I really hope you give this a shot. It can’t hurt, but I can most certainly help. I really think this could save you time and worry this holiday season. Let me know what you think!!
