HO HO HOping to find that perfect gift for your girlfriend, hubby, mom, coworker, niece, nephew or your kid’s teacher this holiday? Look no further because I did the pre-shopping research for you. A few months ago one of my besties gave me the most darling monogrammed toiletry bag. Heidi is known for her thoughtful gifts and I was thrilled to find out that the company she ordered it from –Perfectly Gifted Frisco– was started by our girlfriends, Amy & Ewa.
They are both very busy moms who work full time and I admire them for taking the leap of faith and starting this small business. Many women dream of starting a side biz or passion project so I asked them to share a bit about their journey. Be inspired:
1) You’re both working moms with active young kids. What was the catalyst to starting PGF?
We love gifts simply put. Ewa and I alway scheme about what is fun at the time and what would be good to put together as gifts for friends and family. Our kids have multiple birthday parties on the weekend and we were always trying to find something other than a target toy or gift card to give. We talked about doing this at length and then finally decided to take the plunge and here we are.
2)So many people wish they could start their own biz, but never do..what word of advice can you give a busy mom with a dream?
DO IT!! I think you have to jump in and believe you will be successful. The other key piece is to be flexible and open to learning and taking advice.
3) Why PFG? Was is it about personalized items that people love so much?
I think a gift becomes more treasured with personalization, it says someone put thought into this for me. In this world of go, go, go someone thought about me and that this gift would be loved by the individual.
4) Many friends would love to start a business together, but it can be difficult with friends. How do you ladies keep it professional when you’re so close?
We have respect for one another and understand that we each have strengths and we must trust in them.
5) What inspires each of you?
I think for both us it’s our families and trying to set an example of going after your dreams but also that they understand handwork is a must for success.

I put in my own holiday order for a group of my girlfriends who are beauty junkies. The clear multipurpose bag is the perfect size and super durable. I can’t believe how much makeup it can fit and the key feature is that it’s clear so you can see what’s inside. No more fumbling with frustration to the point you get fed up and pour everything out in a pile. Been there, done that! These are also a great idea for a group like a book club, Bible study, sports team or for a girls trip.
This time of year, I always love giving some of my favorite things away. Kind of like Oprah, but don’t hold your breath on the car! Amy & Ewa would love to personalize one of these clear toiletry bags for you or your beauty junkie friend.
