Vancouver Holiday 2014 Gift Bag Preview

Just over a year ago, I created Parent Perks on a random Sunday. Here we are over a year later, getting ready to release our third round of bags.  I've loved every bag we have released so far pretty equally, but I feel like I've really wanted something special out of these Vancouver Holiday 2014 Gift Bags.  The holiday season is my favourite season of them all, and my vision for these gift bags was to create something that makes parents feel as though they are truly receiving a gift!

I know how the holidays are, as I am a parent myself.  When you are a kid it's all fun and relaxation, but when you are a parent, it is possibly chaos.  The holiday season can be extremely tiring for parents!

Maybe you are worrying about what you will do for the holidays.

Maybe you are behind on your shopping, with a huge list of gift recipients that are difficult to shop for.

Maybe you are planning on hosting a huge holiday meal.

Maybe you are juggling 6 weeks of holiday parties, events, and activities.

Whatever your holiday season looks like, if you are a parent, I have no doubt there is a bit of stress and anxiety mixed in with all the fun and excitement.

I'm always very particular about who I allow to be a sponsor, because I want to make sure the sponsors are businesses you will love, and most of all, businesses you will return to again and again. I think I really nailed it this time. You'll notice some exciting new sponsors, as well as some old favourites.

Please enjoy a preview of some of your Vancouver Holiday 2014 Gift Bag Sponsors.
