One of the Most Perfect Gifts for a Child, A Loving Auntie

As every women knows, you don’t have to be a mother to love children.   The New York Times ran an article recently called, “Holiday Bonus: A Beloved Aunt With Cash”. It profiled Melanie Notkin who created Savvy Auntie ( ). It’s a site that establishes a community for women without children.   They can network with other aunties , find events and get help finding perfect gifts for the nieces, nephews and god children in their lives.   I think that Ms. Notkin is a genius! In this age of hustle and bustle what auntie couldn’t use a little extra help???   Aunts are very special people. When I was growing up, I especially loved hanging out with my mother’s friends who didn’t have children. I thought they were so glamorous!
