2013 Gift Spotlight

2013 Gift Spotlight

For Gifts, Think Out of the Box

As retailers, it’s time to think out of the box for children’s gifts. While the biggest gift-giving and exchanging season is over, the wholesalers’ season of gift shows has just begun. For children, everything and anything can be thought of as a gift. It’s your merchandising and imagination that matter most in showcasing an array of celebratory gift options to your customers — for every price point, through every season and milestone of a child’s life.

As The Giggle Guide™ ushers in a promising new year, we continue to present products, news and tips to help increase your business. While you prepare to shop for gifts at regional and national showplaces, check out the brands below for a review of some interesting gift suggestions. And as always, visit thegiggleguide.com daily for valuable information and inspiration.

Spring into a Sun-Safe Summer with SnoozeShade

Britain’s best-selling sun and sleep shade SnoozeShade is delighted to announce the new Deluxe Edition will launch this April. The new line has been developed after two years research into what the US mom wants.

Sun protection is top of the agenda and the new sleek, upmarket fabric protects from 97.5% of ultra-violet (UV) rays in sleep mode. The chic contrasting lookout window filters 80% of UV enabling little ones to enjoy the sights comfortably on the sunniest of days.

Ease of use has been built in with simple design that works. Most importantly, safety is at the heart of SnoozeShade design. Although not required by law, products are tested to the same safety standards as a toy – so risk of strangulation from long straps or choking on buttons will never be an issue.

Whether awake or asleep, parents will have complete peace of mind that their baby is safe from the sun, wind, chill, bugs and light rain.

Great for running errands, dining out or a simple stroll and perfect for summer vacations, SnoozeShade means safe, happy summer fun for the whole family while maintaining baby’s routine.

We’re expecting high demand so pre-order SnoozeShade now for availability April 2013. Great gift idea all year round, too!
