Denver Deal: Soybu Activewear, Zoo Free Day, Chocolates and More
posted by: Gretchen
Last year I didn’t really buy a bunch of presents for family (or friends) and I instead called it the “time spent with Christmas.” I made a point to do something with my loved ones individually. That is why I love FoxMind.com‘s new game Time In A Box. When you give Time in a Box, (MSRP $17.95 for 2 players ages 6 and up) you are offering a child you care about the gift no one else in the world can give them: your time. Inside the box you’ll find 96 activity cards that allow a child to momentarily shift your priorities and focus on doing a special activity together, such as playing a board game; solving a puzzle; starting a family tree; making a blanket fort; or carrying out an act of kindness that will bring a smile to a stranger’s face.
Time in a Box includes a simple written agreement between you and the child that sets the ground rules by which you’ll both abide. Adults (and teens) should switch off their smart phones and get ready for some quality time!
FREE DAYS. The Denver Zoo is free for Colorado residents Nov. 20.
Soybu Discount. Last spring, Mile High Mamas was thrilled to partner with Soybu women’s activewear to collaborate the grand opening of their flagship store in Greenwood Village next to Trader Joe’s. Their “Life is a Workout” messaging particularly resonates with moms; their feminine, stylish and comfortable clothes are perfect, whether you’re chasing a toddler around the house or fitting in a hardcore workout.

Mile High Cleaning. I am normally a girl who loves deals and I even do the cleaning myself (to save a buck – it always seemed like something only the rich could do). But then I found a deal from Mile High Cleaning Company. It is family-owned and operated in Denver. They offer many different cleaning services for both the residential and commercial customer. No job is too big or too small. Get 2 hours of cleaning for $44.95 or 3 hours of cleaning for $59.95 from Mile High Cleaning Company.
Cavanaugh’s Chocolate. I love to have a few extra gifts around the house – something I can give a neighbor, friend or even a teacher. I love chocolates (so do most of my friends – so it makes for a convenient gift to have around). Mrs. Cavanaugh’s candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence….Ask chocolate aficionados.
