When to expect GHNS' holiday offerings:
-- We kick off the season with something new this year: A 16-page tab for Small Business Saturday. American Express two years ago started this push for consumers to shop their local retailers the Saturday after Black Friday -- this year's SBS is Nov. 24.
This is mostly an advertising initiative, so coordinate with your ad departments to find out their plans. This section will be available on GHNS and in Saxotech by end of day Friday.
-- Our Holiday Cookbook returns Oct. 12, with recipes for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners, cookies and desserts, and food gifts.
-- Our Holiday Gift Guide will be released Oct. 24, with ideas for teens and tweens, reviews of hot new toys and tech, and more.
-- Our Holiday Songbook returns Nov. 9.
-- Look for our last-minute gifts page by Nov. 16.
