Natural Holiday Guide 2015


Advertise in HK’s only holiday guide for parties and presents with presence.

Every year, we share tips, tricks and suggestions for a conscious holiday with our growing network of shoppers seeking eco, organic and fair when making preparations. You can make life easy by helping people find your natural gifts, event ideas and party fashions that don’t cost the earth.

Tips, gifts and party ideas … naturally

Our members make conscious choices in all their purchase decisions and every year they ask our advice on clean, green, healthy gifts. We provide the answers they are looking for in our annual feature and a selection of seasonal offers and holiday celebration ideas.

Our readers rely on HK heartbeat to identify authentic businesses and advertising is subject to approval —  we do the homework so our readers save time. We are in our 15th year of sharing fresh content and local connections for conscious everyday choices. I suggest including a promotional offer we can use to track your response.

Here’s what is included:

  • Email listing in the Conscious Holiday Guide (eDM and/or website)
