November 2013 E-Blast

Holiday Gift & Activity GuideHoliday Gift and Activity Guide

It is the Holiday Gift and Activity Guide (HGAG) time of year again. So, for December we will have this special section in each of the 90,000 or so publications. In that we typically do not have lots of retail advertisers in the KD, we look to encourage those who promote enrichment programs, afterschool activities, and fun destination points for kids and their families to push their products just like a retail store might. A dance store (like our advertiser Dance Trends) should promote their dancing gear for Christmas but the folks offering dance classes (like our advertiser West University Dance) might give a thought to promoting dance classes as a stocking stuffer. You get the idea.

And to help promote the marketability of our advertisers as Christmas present notions, the KD has created the Elf's Short List as a web only promotional piece. Any advertiser who wants in on selling their product through a gift certificate as stocking stuffers or those who we think should consider the notion will be promoted as a separate destination on our web site. It's an easy thing to do and well worth the effort! Call us and we will give you the details. Our deadline for December is accelerated due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Call by November 14 and we'll get you in!

Holiday Party at our New Home

We've moved our office and now want to show it off. We've had time to settle in and enjoy having lots of natural light, a larger more open paint, new floors, new phones and some new furniture. Be on the lookout for an email invitation to help celebrate the season, you, our loyal customers and our new space on December 4. We know there will be lots going on in December so mark your calendars knowing an invitation is forthcoming. 

Also, please update you files (and GPS for the day of the party) with our new address:
5320 Gulfton, Ste. 22 (same building, new suite)
Houston TX  77081

Our Gift to You

As an added bonus to our advertisers and soon to be advertisers we would like to "Gift" you with a family 4 pack of tickets to events and venues for the holiday season.

The Renaissance Festival: October 12 - Dec 1.  Y'all know about this don't you? A grand and ambitious family event  that's been around forever. Tickets are for Sundays only. For more information visit
Dickens on the Strand: December 6 - 8.  This is one of my most favorite ways to spend a holiday weekend with the kiddos.  It's a Victorian Holiday Festival replete with jugglers, sword swallowers, bagpipes, wandering minstrels, great food and crafts. All the participants will be in period costumes so it's sort of like a fun trip in a time machine. And then there is the city of Galveston and the beach if you tire of all the festivities.
The Improv Theatre. Fun family comedy and magic shows. They have alternate Saturday shows.
Schlitterbahn's indoor season: October 12 - April 14.  Galveston's heated indoor water park.

Give us a call and we’ll drop the tickets in the mail. Please limit your request to one venue and 4 tickets per advertiser.
