For #SmallBusinessSaturday: Shop Our Blog’s Affiliates

For Small Business Saturday, I am encouraging all of the readers, followers and fans of this blog to patronize my affiliate partners because they help me deliver quality content, news and information every day.

Your patronage of these brands will support a small business which just doesn’t include mom and pop brick and mortar stores but the thousands of people who have products, services and platforms, like this one, online.

Check them out and if you’re in the need of any product, your purchase today will keep this blog running. I thank you in advance!

Isabella Oliver

Isabella Oliver is a celebrity fave maternity designer. When I was expecting, I wore some of these designs and found the signature ruching on the size forgiving and breathable. The aesthetic is simple and they stick to clean lines. I love this brand because you can wear the pieces under a denim or casual jacket or pair them with pearls and heels and the clothes work either way. IO also sells shoes, belts and other accessories.

Gymboree

I know from first hand experience that the quality of the clothing is superior. They last in the wash and the colors do not fade. The brand is known for selling very well coordinated pieces with whimsical characters or in solids, neutrals and other long-lasting hues. The clothing is made of natural materials mostly, and they look really cute. I’ve blogged about this brand often before because I am a believer in it. It’s the brand all the affluent suburban moms outfit their kids in so you know it’s top stuff. (smile).  Gymboree sells from baby to tween.

Shop Global.Gymboree.com

Umi Shoes

Umi makes shoes with technology and comfort in mind.  Each shoe is lightweight and ergonomically fit for your child’s growing feet. They come in packaging made of 100% recycleable materials. The price point is reasonable and these shoes are durable and can stand the test of playground time and rough and tumble.

UMI Children's Shoes

Naturpedic

Since your baby will be spending most of her time (up to 18 hours a day) in her crib, it is important to get the right mattress and not go cheap. Get the best you can.  An eco-friendly foam and innerspring mattresses like the ones sold by Naturpedic tend to be made with fewer chemicals, plastics, and PVC (vinyl), and a greater percentage of renewable and sustainable materials, such as cotton, fast-growing bamboo, coir, plant-based foam, and natural latex (rubber from tree sap that’s been injected with air). Also, the manufacturing process for some eco-friendly crib mattresses tends to produce fewer carbon emissions. The Naturepedic No-Compromise Organic Cotton Classic 150 crib mattress shown here has a “U.S.-grown organic cotton filling” and a polyethylene plastic waterproof surface that, the manufacturer says, is free of vinyl/ PVC, phthalates, lead, or antimicrobial biocides. It sells for $260. The outer cover of this mattress might limit the exposure to toxins.

ABC Mouse

I’ve boasted plenty about this online learning platform for kids. I purchased a subscription for my daughter when she was 4 and she followed the curriculum through the end. Today, she is a top reader, tests in the 99% for reading and gets all As in school. I credit her early start from this program which is having a sale through Cyber Monday of 63% off its annual fee. This is perfect equalizer for those who cannot afford to pay a tutor for their child like some of the most affluent amnong us. ABC Mouse is used in schools and many early learning centers around the nation and globe!

Pittman and Davis

This Holiday season, consider giving a gift of food! Fruit baskets, cakes, candy and other assorted food items are great for giving employees, teachers, vendors, a boss, colleagues, clients and the like. Also, order a few small gift baskets to give as host gifts when you go over people’s homes for parties, gatherings, dinners and other social gatherings this holiday season. Pittman and Davis have been shipping orchard  orchard fresh fruit, smoked meats, cheeses, pastries, candies and other scrumptious gift food items for over 80 yeas. The family owned company is based in Texas. All items are shipped and delivered fresh with a money-back guarantee for deliveries that do not meet up to company standards. Shipping food items can be a very quick and relatively inexpensive way to knock out your holiday gifting for distant and extended family and business relationships in one fell swoop.

Fresh Ruby Red Grapefruit, Orange, Pear and Apple Gifts

Bajuken

Baukjen is the sister brand to Isabella Oliver. Because it is by the same designer, you can expect to find similar clean simple styling and lines. Quality constructed soft, stretchable and breathable all natural materials.

B2C Jewels

In the market for an anniversary or renewal band? Want to get a pair of diamond studs to add to your classic collection of jewelry. You can get top quality jewelry and diamonds at a reasonable price compared to going to a jewelry store by shopping B2C Jewels.

Janie and Jack

This is the slightly more upscale sister brand to Gymboree. The clothing looks for posh to me. The price point is higher.

Crazy 8

And Crazy 8 is the less upscale sister brand to Gymboree. Clothing is still top quality but you can get insane deals starting at $4 for tops. They have a large variety of options and are great for stacking on on play clothes.



Crazy 8 Sale On Now!

Le Tote

Le Tote is the best subscription box for preginistas who are new moms-to-be and don’t have time any longer to figure out their clothes. Members get sjo[[ed unlimited number of apparel and accessories each month. It just recently entered the maternity wear business and it just recently started offering maternity wear. We love it so much, we’ve partnered with Le Tote as affiliates. It is having a Cyber Week Sale! Take 85% off First Month of Le Tote Rental! Ends 12/1

Wild Dill

I love Wild Dill because it combines commerce with conscious shopping. They source their goods direct from the creators in Africa, South America, Israel and all over the world and sell them online for a fair share of the profit which is different from what a lot of companies do: they steal the concept, create duplicates in China made of sub par material and market them as authentic.

Nested Bean

The latest on our radar is a swaddle blanket that takes the guess work out of swaddling a new born and adds technology of “touch” so baby can feel even more secure when sleep. It’s called The Zen Swaddle and it was created by a desperate mom who came up with an ingenious solution for some long sleepless nights.

Urth Box

Urthbox specializes in sending healthy, delicious and tasty new snacks from local stores and vendors.  Delivered each month, the curated collection is designed to serve as an alternative to unhealthy snacking in the face of stress, busy schedules, and other life struggles and to complement a healthy, fit lifestyle.

Creation Crate

STEM (Science, Techonology, Engineering and Math) is a big deal these days and getting kids interested in this discipline of topics can be tough. With a subscription box from Creation Crate, your kid gets a project to make each time. It’s more than software though, the projects include a building component to it.

#GivingTuesday: How Your Kids Can Participate

maxresdefault-9

As Cyber Monday sunsets and people are wrapping up or enjoying their Black Friday deals or the great things they got from local merchants on Small Business Saturday, non profits nationwide now prepare for Giving Tuesday.

The global event is in its fifth year and is celebrated each year the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It is the brainchild of 92nd Street Y, a cultural center in New York City and the United Nations Foundation.

Giving Tuesday is intended to be the launch pad for the charitable giving season. While the time period around the holidays is often about celebrating Christmas, Ramadan, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and other holidays that involve gettting gifts, it is also a season for sharing and giving.

Thus the name #GivingTuesday is  appropriate and is observed each year by giving to nonprofits, charities and other organizations that are raising funds, including schools, churches and other charitable groups.

Beyond just collecting monetary donations, a lot of local orgs organize food and coat drives and many individuals celebrate it by committing random acts of kindness such as paying for the drink of the person behind them in the coffee line at work.

In 2015, 700,000 people from 71 countries came together to donate $116.7 USD million in cash. An additional $1.08 million USD was spent on gifts.

Children can give by  volunteering at their local shelter or food bank or doing something nice for elderly neighbors like mowing their lawn, shoveling snow from their driveway or helping them with groceries.

At home, younger kids can acknowledge the day by helping out with a chore like folding laundry, helping to cook dinner, or even reading to a younger sibling.

To help spread the message, snap a photo of your kids doing something good and use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to spread awareness and encourage others to get into the spirit as well!

Parents can use the day to donate to their area school, youth camp or other organization that works with families.

This round, we have no sponsor but in honor of Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday coming up, we’re gifting one of our newest items, the imported gold plated love pendant to th

Small Business Saturday: Search your local small biz HERE

Today is Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to promoting small businesses, mom and pop stores and other small entrepreneurs.
Small business fuel the economy as there are more of them than larger businesses.
For example, in Maryland, independent grocers generate $2.27B in annual sales and are responsible for over 20,000 jobs and wages $872.75 million.  That fuels $218M in state and local budget, and almost $200M in federal resources.

Given all the contentious dialogue going on these days around immigrants, it’s also a great time to highlight all the ways immigrants in America, including small business owners, also contribute to the economy.  One out of every 10 American workers is employed by an immigrant-owned business, and these firms contribute over $775 billion to the American economy, each year.

Today, make sure you support a local small business.
