When you gotta go, you just gotta go, despite the condition of the restroom that may be closest at hand.

The Pee Pocket (  is an ingenious little device for women that allows you to remain standing while urinating so you never have to come into contact with questionable toilet seats. It’s also a handy little device to keep in your backpack while hiking or to keep in the car while traveling and the sanitation of roadside rest stops proves less than desireable. After use, there’s a hygienic tissue included in each packet and a bag for disposing of the used pocket and wipe. Makes a great stocking stuffer for any woman who enjoys camping, the great outdoors or who travels extensively.

One of the most important gifts you can give any young girl on your gift list this holiday season is the ability to develop a solid sense of self-esteem.

Elements for Girls: A Fun & Engaging Self-Discovery Project by Mary Ellen Young & Sandra McDonnell is a wonderful book with an attrached crafting kit that guides the reader in making a bracelet. Every bead added to the bracelet represents an essential element in every girl’s development of character, with each section of the book inspiring the reader with empowering knowledge on a variety of topics. We think this amazing book would work equally well with women of all ages who may not have received the support and guidance they needed when growing up and could use a refresher course in learning how to manage stress, really like themselves and make the best choices to enjoy self-fulfilled lives.
