Southern Holiday Life is a great regional magazine to advertise your business this upcoming holiday season. Inside the pages will be all things holiday with a Southern flair of course. We have writers from the region sharing their expertise in crafts, recipes, home décor, holiday trends, and much more. Last year we expanded our efforts in promoting small businesses and our magazine doubled in size. The Southern Holiday Gift Guide was created to showcase our advertisers products online and it was met with overwhelming success. Small businesses are the heart of our nation and we are taking that to heart with our ‘Shop Small Shop Southern’ campaign. Not only do we encourage you to shop small businesses, but also support Southern brands and Southern made products. All of our holiday gift guide branding will incorporate the ‘Shop Small Shop Southern’ campaign which includes a new website. The Gift Guide will be available at our ShopSouthern.mobi mobile website. This Smartphone & tablet friendly site keeps our advertisers in the palm of our readers’ hand. It’s also available for view from a computer desktop. We offer the complete marketing package for our advertisers; print, online, social and mobile. Our goal for Southern Holiday Life is to help bring more exposure to Southern businesses and products while offering consumers a unique holiday magazine!
