It was snowing earlier today and as I raced around to find some mittens I thought of these amazing mittens. Astis Mittens are super warm and hand made based on a pair that came originally from a Native American Indian. These mittens will last for years and we just love their story!
Don’t know how many guys will see this — so feel free to share and forward this along for some hints. And take note, guys: all the women I spoke to don’t want chocolates. Take a peak here for some thoughtful, sweet ideas.
My son gave me a weighted blanket for the holidays. Turns out it was the best thing I never knew I really needed. . . .
Welcome to Secret Gift Closet
In our home I have a special closet with secret gifts inside. Some are ‘tried and true’ that I have on hand for hostess gifts, sudden birthday parties and thank you gifts. Others are hand-picked for a friend or relative waiting for an upcoming event or holiday.
The idea for this site came to me because every year before the holidays a few of my close friends would reach out and ask for gift ideas for their Dad, their teenage cousin or even a business colleague. Every time I would get a request like this, I dropped everything and started searching for ideas. Doing that kind of deep-dive research is what I live for.
Secret Gift Closet is about sharing my favorite gift ideas from one girlfriend to another. Over the years I consider it an honor to share my discoveries with my best friends. . . and now you!
And, of course, if you have your own go-to favorites, I hope you will share them here, too.
I truly believe the best gifts are the gifts of time and memories we make together. I just don’t like to show up empty handed.
