Call for Holiday Gift Ideas, Offers, and Discounts

Even after all the years working in magazines, I’ve never quite adjusted to thinking about holidays 6 months or more before they happen. That’s why I’m just NOW putting out a call for friends and vendors to think about gift ideas for the Champion of My Heart community.

best dog blog, champion of my heart, gift-wrapped presentWe’d like to promote small businesses (in the dog world and otherwise) with special Champion of My Heart offers or discounts or gift ideas this holiday season:

  • Maybe it’s a collection of our fav items (dog treats, dog toys, other dog gifts).
  • Maybe it’s a little extra discount for Champion of My Heart readers.
  • Maybe it’s as simple as offering free shipping.

It’s only a kernel of an idea, but we’d love to help you and give special attention to small businesses, who could surely use the boost.

So, if you or anyone you know might be willing to play along, please let us know … either in the comments or privately.

Thanks so much!

I would like to offer a 10% discount to the Champion of My Heart community for K9 Bytes. I handmake fabric dog collars, leashes and treats. Fabric choices include many holiday patterns and much more. The website URL is: Please use discount code: COMH115 to receive your 10% discount. Happy shopping, Shannon.

What a lovely idea.

My town supports local businesses at Christmas by organizing a card system. When you visit a locally-owned shop, you get a stamp. After your card is full of stamps, you enter it in a random drawing to win a prize.

Sounds like you’re putting your own spin on a virtual community of small businesses. Very cool. I’ll spread the word.
