GIFT – A Holiday Shopping Event

One thing I love about working with the Shops at Prudential Center on the PR for their holiday events is that each event links back to the community in some way. This November, they are giving shoppers in the Boston area an opportunity to get that holiday shopping done before Thanksgiving while receiving exclusive discounts and helping eight charities. Shoppers will quickly make up the $5 registration fee in discounts. I’ll be there on November 17, and I think the Ann Taylor and LOFT discounts I find will be a lot more than $5. I might be shopping a bit for myself. . . shh.

It’s a win-win for everyone! If you have a blog and would like to share GIFT with your readers or Twitter followers, it would be greatly appreciated!

What kind of holiday shopper are you? Were you done in July, do you buy as you go, or do you wait until the very last minute?

    For $5 this is totally worth it – thanks for sharing! I’m usually a bit of a last minute (or online) shopper but this could help me get my butt in gear early this year!
