The Christmas Gift Guide 2018 is Coming!

Due to the popularity of our festive articles and last year’s Christmas Gift Guide Magazine, this year I’ll be putting together a bigger and better… 2018 Christmas Gift Guide Magazine.

Normally we reach an average of  60,587 unique visitors per month. This usually doubles in November and December but this year I want to do even better!

The magazine will be published and promoted online on the 12th November. Giving 6 weeks of promotion at the busiest time on the shopping calendar.

Full information is shown below on how to take part…

The Gift Guide Magazine will feature themed gift guides, alongside free and paid promotional spots.
