Great Gift Ideas: World Wildlife Fund

A creative gift idea for kids and adults is to "adopt" their favorite animal from the World Wildlife Fund. While other organizations do this as well, the WWF seems to have the biggest selection of animals. There are different levels of price-points so for as little as $25 you can pick out a really creative and meaningful gift. So far, I have only done the panda and it was a big hit!

House Party: Freebies and Time for Moms

Host a House Party and receive freebies and coupons and exclusive new products to try. Just apply for the party you are interested in having and once selected you will receive a party pack with the sponsoring companies' products. Invite your friends and family to come try it out and provide feedback based on the response to the product.
I have been to several parties, one for pizza and the other for Pull-Ups. A fun and easy way to get freebies and provide feedback on the products before they are fully marketed.
