2014 Holiday Gift Guide for PANKs!

There are 23 million American women known as PANKs, professional aunt with no kids. One in five women is a PANK, and I am one of them. I love being a pank, and a lot of our PinKixxes are proud panks too, and we rock! You’re a cool aunt (or called “savvy auntie”) who looove your nieces and nephews, and they love you back. Around the holidays, it’s not just moms who are busy to plan for their children. PANKs spend $9 billion on toys and gifts for children annually. Wow, right?

NOW, with all the things we got for others this holiday, let’s think about ourselves. Well, someone has to get us a gift too, don’t you agree (even if that someone ends up being yourself)??? So here’s the list of Gifts for Panks. The price goes from $5 to $2000, so just pick the one (or two) that strikes you, and enjoy.

1. Bath bombs

For relaxing time and rejuvenating yourself. Like this one:

5. Sweater/scarf

I love sweaters, and with getting old, I buy even more sweaters. Hate to be cold! I started to coordinate with scarfs recently. With scarfs, it’s so easy to accent your fashion and to make the completely different look of your favorite outfit you wear often. Click the link below and Scroll to the 4th picture. That’s the one I wanted to show you.

I personally love bags. Only a handful of them I actually use on daily basis, but still I have a ton of them. If you’re like me, you’ll love to get another bag this holiday. Try this one:

Simple Trick for Better Life

A few important things I newly learned when I reached 40 are not the ones I never heard of, but knew them all along but never felt in my heart. One of them is gratitude.

The most fundamental practice to quickly transform your life into positive and more meaningful is gratitude. Believe me, it’s true, and it works. A deep and genuine sense of appreciation for what you have in your life – for the air you breathe, for the warm room you live in, for blessing of people who care about you, for all and more – can turn your life around.

In the business, when I get Facebook Likes, when I see comments in the blog posts, when I get reviews on my products, when members ask me for fashion help…all these make me feel like I have some meaning in their lives. Each time I am thankful, and every time it makes me think ‘How can I thank them?’ ‘what can i do for them?’ It charges me up to think, plan, and execute something new everyday and makes me go out there and meet more new people and learn more about them.

I loved watching Marie Forleo’s video about gratitude, so I started my Gratitude Journal. Find 1 thing I thank for and write 5 things about it, and this is the first thing in my journal:

I’m thankful for my best friend, Bill.

1. He listens to my complaints at 1 in the morning
2. He brings cold medicine when I’m sick
3. We talk everyday about nothing
4. He treats me to dinner when I’m down
5. He delivers my order packages to the post office when I’m lazy

Ahhhh, it looks like I gotta be more nice to him from now on. The arguments and disagreements we have often don’t seem much now. Ha! By the time I’ll share more gratitude with us, Wham-Bahm, I seeĀ Gratitude Jewelry in production too. Who knows, right?

Please watch Marie’s video, and share with us what you’re thankful for in the comment below. We appreciate it! :-)
