A Group Gift Giving Blog, FrumUs To You!


Ever since I was a little girl growing up in suburban Philadelphia in the '70s, I have relished the challenge of finding creative, thoughtful gifts at a reasonable price.  Adding a homemade card, complete with a rhyming poem, rounded out the perfect gift.  Decades later I am inspired by the prospect of sharing ideas to make group gift giving exciting and meaningful.  Cheers -- Karen
