Our Previous Gift Guides

Meet Our Family

We are the people that will be reviewing your products!

2015 Meet The Family

Kim (Mom) – 48-year-old woman who loves gift baskets, cheeses, wine, books, housewares, home décor, blogging, wine, and checking out the latest technology and gadgets to make life easier around the house and while playing taxi driver to the boys! (Did I mention the wine?)

John (Dad) – 56-year-old man who loves anything related to fishing, hunting, drag racing, and checking out the latest power tools at the neighborhood Home Depot!

Tre (Tween) – Our (almost) 13-year-old son who is infatuated with the latest hip-hop and rap music, a lover of any products made by Apple (he’s been asking for an iPhone for the past 4 years) and a budding videographer who shares his dance videos and mash-ups on YouTube and Instagram. When he’s not recording his latest video, he is reviewing the latest fashions and accessories and skateboarding around the community.

Jon (Teen) – 16-year-old son who is an avid Xbox 360 gamer, electric guitarist and backup vocals for a local band who loves anything from Hot Topic, his beautiful girlfriend, Hannah, and spending time skateboarding around town with his friends.

Molly (Pooch) – our Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix who will be turning 8 years old on November 3! She loves barking at anyone who walks past our window, and you cannot enter the house without acknowledging her presence and giving her a good rub and snuggle!

April, Chris and Roxy – April is my 27-year-old daughter who lives with her husband, Chris, here in Virginia as well with my fur grand baby, Roxy, a lovable Lab who thinks she’s a small lap dog like Mollyanna.
