HGG:: Calzico

We are ecstatic to have Calzico as a part of our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide!

I truly love the concept behind their clothing. As a tween mom myself, I know first hand how difficult it can be to find clothes that are stylish, age apprpriate and fit well for girls during those in-between years. And, my daughter loves to be comfortable so it can be quite a challenge to find clothes that make the both of us happy.

Designed by a mom and her tween, CALZICO brand for tween girls includes versatile pieces with convertible or reversible features in sizes 6-8 through 12-14. With just-right stretch, serious comfort, and clever styles, girls will feel confident to choose well and wear often. Visit the full collection of globally inspired artwork tees, layered skirts, and reversible dresses and jackets online, and be the hero of your tween and her wardrobe this holiday.

I love Calzico because it meets all of our requirements, fit, comfort, style. My daughter loves her gray/coral reversible dress. She usually wears it with the pop of color, but can also wear it all gray. It's comfortable, looks good and is easy to care for.

I highly recommend Calzico for all of your tween girl clothing needs. You won't be disappointed! In addition to their website, you can look them up on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and Twitter.

HGG:: Christmas Pajamas!

Each and every year I purchase coordinating Christmas pajamas for our children. It's been a fun tradition since they were all babies. Typically, we wrap them up and that is the one present they are allowed to open on Christmas Eve.

Every year it gets a little harder to find coordinating jammies that are approved by my 12-year-old boy and still look cute on the 6-year-old. This year, i was so thrilled when Butterfly Designs by Kristi came to the rescue. Butterfly Designs was featured in our Holiday Gift Guide last year and I absolutely LOVED the Santa bags I bought there. This year, when Kristi agreed to sponsor our gift guide with personalized Christmas pajamas, I was so excited.

The pajamas themselves come in a variety of sizes all the way up to adult, so there were no issues getting the sizes that I needed. Also, they were a cute, classic color combination that all three kids were happy with.

The best part? They are completely unique. Kristi personally created several design choices for me to pick from. They were all cute and we were able to customize my daughter's a little more and give her some glitter to stand apart from the boys :)

They are great quality pieces and have washed up nicely. I would definitely recommend Butterfly Designs by Kristi. She can personalize almost anything!

Holiday Rush: Tricks To Help Your Small Business Ship More Efficiently

The holiday season is approaching, and this presents a lucrative opportunity for your small business. As you market your products to potential buyers and plan out your holiday deals, you should also take a second look at your shipping methods. All too often, small business owners make small mistakes that inhibit efficiency.

"Of course, there are many responsibilities that require the attention of new entrepreneurs while launching a business, and any number of ways to reduce costs in other aspects of the business," Peter Gasca writes in Entrepreneur. "Shipping, however, can account for as much as 25 percent of your overall costs, so why don’t more entrepreneurs dedicate resources to managing it?"

By analyzing your current shipping practices, you will likely find places for improvement. This guide will help you spot where these gaps are hiding.

 

Minimizing Shipping Cost

How financially efficient are your shipping methods? There are ways to make transporting goods more cost effective for you and your customers.

  • Take advantage of flat rate shipping. Ignoring flat rate options could have you paying more than you need to for shipping. You could streamline shipping costs and make your inventory tracking easier.
  • Make your packaging more effective. Do you have your goods in the smallest possible packaging? You may be using a box to send your custom made scarves when you could be shipping them in a mailbag.
  • Work with a shipping consultant. A shipping consultant can advise which methods of shipping make the most sense for your business model. This way, you can pair cost-effectiveness with efficiency.

Shipping More Quickly

It's also important to consider the speed at which you are able to ship your goods. This is especially important during the holidays since people expect their packages by a certain time. One of the best ways you can assess your current shipping model is to use modern tracking software. You might also consider using a similar software to cross-check customer addresses. This will help you spot shipping inaccuracies, reducing the probability of the package getting lost. A shipping consultant can also help you analyze the speed of your shipping.

Lowering Your Environmental Impact

In today's world, eco-friendly shipping is key. This involves the type of shipping you use, as well as the materials in your packaging. You can select recycled boxes and bags for more eco-friendly transportation. By making your shipping practices as green as possible, you may also appeal to a conscious audience.

Efficient shipping practices are key to customer satisfaction. When you ship in a quick, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly manner, you can make your business stand out among your competition. And these customers will hopefully return next season.

HGG 2017:: Beleave Teas

Market Mommy is thrilled to have Beleave Teas included in our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide! Read on to learn more about the great herbal tea options they have to offer for kids!

Their Children's Herbal Teas are naturally tasty for your little ones yet gentle on their developing digestive systems. Only the very best ingredients are blended together to make these herbals yummy and tummy friendly.

Steeping Instructions: When making Herbal Teas for children, we suggest bringing the water to a full boil and then steeping for 2-3 minutes. You can steep for less time if it seems too strong to your child. We also recommend letting the Herbal Teas cool down to room temperature before serving or add ice. Children's mouths are not as accustomed to hot drinks.

Here are 3 reasons why you can feel good about giving Herbal Teas to your children. 

1.They are naturally caffeine free: The great majority of Herbal Teas in the world are naturally caffeine free. There are a few like Yerba Mate that do contain caffeine, but they are in the minority.

2.They are naturally sugar free: Many Herbal Teas such as Rooibos have a natural sweetness that kids will love. Some are blended with fruits that contain fructose but the amounts are dramatically less than other children's beverages. The best part is that you are in control.

3.They can be served warm or cold: Herbal Teas make a delicious warm drink for your little ones but they are also wonderful iced. Can you say that about any of the other beverages marketed to kids?

Visit the Beleave Teas website for more information, or find them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Pinterest!
