Special Holiday Offers from Some Awesome Companies
Written by Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool and Steady Mom

Gift-giving this time of year can feel complicated, but it doesn’t have to. We want to fill our homes in the same way we fill our lives: with what matters to us, with what’s really important.

For homeschooling families, this means that we want the presents we give–to our kids and others–to contribute to an atmosphere of learning.

With this goal in mind, I wanted to highlight the sponsors who have been a part of Simple Homeschool this year. Many of them have come up with special offers for you this holiday season, too. Enjoy!
