What I can do for you

  • Get more eyes on your product

  • Promote your product and website as a go-to company
  • Expose your product to a demographic looking to make their child’s college experience unforgettable.

How the Gift Guide Works

Back to School Gift Guide runs from July 15 through September 15th of each year. There are NO payments or fees involved with participating in our gift guide. We ask sponsors to perform an exchange with us instead. The sponsor mails us product(s) and in return, we promote the sponsor on our blog and social media channels. Instead of a payment, keep the products that we receive as a form of compensation.

For the 2018 Back to School Gift Guide, we have 4 levels of product promotion you can choose from based on the retail value of the products you send to us for review.
