The holidays are upon us and MilitaryBridge is sharing our holiday gift guides with military discounts & savings!

4 December 2020 by

The holidays are upon us, yay!  I love this time of year.  Even though this year will have it's challenges with the pandemic.  It is still a time to celebrate.  We have so much to be thankful for.  

As a company that is constantly sharing our favorite military discount programs and brands, we thought it would only be fitting to put together a curated list of our favorites for the holiday season. 

This year, I have created a his and hers list of top gifts to consider when shopping for that special someone.  Of course, I have picked out some of our favs with military discounts in mind but had to include a couple other ideas as well.  

You can grab the links to each product below the graphic.  Please remember that we do earn a small commission when you make purchases from our affiliate links which helps us continue to bring you awesome military deals :)

MILITARYBRIDGE'S HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR HER

I will admit, I had a tough time putting this list together and not hitting "Add to Cart" for myself....haha.  Maybe I better just pass this list along to my hubby.  If you are interested in any of these gift ideas below you will find the links to each product.  Happy shopping and happy holidays. 

YOU ARE NOT ALONE: Encouragement for the Heart of a Military Spouse by military spouse Jen McDonald. 

In You Are Not Alone: Encouragement for the Heart of a Military Spouse, Jen offers a helping hand and a whisper of "You've got this!" as you make your own way. She celebrates the great moments with you, commiserates when it's not so easy, and points you to hard-won wisdom and helpful resources. Most of all, she reminds you that you're not alone on this military spouse journey.

Each daily reading is written from the perspective of faith. In her warm, authentic style, Jen offers practical tips, related Scripture, and journal prompts for further reflection. Whether it's a deployment, move, or raising military kids, find real-life inspiration and hope from someone who's been there.  GRAB IT HERE

After a lot of research, I chose the SPINNING brand (also used on base).  I also purchased an annual membership to a streaming workout program called Studio Sweat onDemand, another great decision!  When I purchased the SPINNING bike, it did come with a free one year subscription but I have enjoyed the SSoD more!  Great news, I have partnered with SSoD to offer 50% off memberships.  You can grab an annual membership for only $99.  SSoD includes more than just spin.
