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.

7. Bag/tote

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:

So how are you celebrating your St. Patrick’s Day? Please try to take a break from work and have some fun-fun. Good idea, right? Drinking might not be avoidable to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (it’s a part of the irish deal n’ all), but remember to be safe and reasonable and no driving after drinking, please. 😉 Remember Saint Patrick and to share love with others too!
