“Since I discovered your gift guides a few years ago, I have referenced them year-round. I thought they were a great resource for birthday gifts, as well as Christmas.” – Lennie
Our readers know we are highly selective about what we put on our guides.
This and the 11 years of trust we have built up with our audience are just a few of the reasons our Gift Guides are a massive success.
About Thriving Home
We, Polly Conner and Rachel Tiemeyer, are moms of three kids each and have lived with our families in Columbia, Missouri for most of our lives now. We launched Thriving Home in January 2012 as an online resource to encourage and equip moms to thrive in the day-to-day challenges of raising a family and managing a home. Our site gets over 8 million pageviews a year and is continually growing.
Brands We’ve Worked With
Women direct over 83% of purchases. Women not only have the buying power, they have the influence. Their endorsements can be like rocket fuel for sales.
Our followers are navigating the busy years of raising children, trying to put healthy meals on the table, and balancing work and managing a home.
Value Home & Health
These women place a high value on family and home life and desire realistic solutions to help their homes thrive.
