If you have a product that would be a perfect gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or graduation day, now is the time to start thinking about pitching ideas to national magazines.
You might even get in under the wire for Valentine’s Day. Here are some leads to get you started:
—Vegetarian Times magazine is considering a feature that ties in with Father’s Day, focusing on healthy living items for men. It would include food and nutrition products for vegetarian dads.
—Selecta, a magazine that targets upscale Hispanics in the U.S. and Latin America, wants to know about high-end, luxury products, accessories and gadgets for Valentine’s Day and Father’s Day.
—Business Week magazine wants to know about products that will make good Father’s Day gifts such as high-tech gadgets, apparel, food and travel items, etc. Their deadline is February 15.
—Florida International Magazine, which targets residents and lovers of Florida, wants high-end luxury lifestyle products for special features for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gift guides.
I found those leads and dozens of others when I got a day pass at The Gift List, a website that features tons of leads for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation Day and lots of other special features planned for the first six months of next year. You can get the same pass that’s good for 24 hours so you can check out all the leads. But you must send an email to Amy and tell her you want to do a test-drive. You’ll be amazed at what you find.
