San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 4, 2007
A new breed of online gift store specializing in breakup gifts was launched today by Angela Schmidt, owner of Smashing Katie.
Finding the right words to say when someone is hurt is a challenge. And sometimes saying nothing is better than saying the wrong thing. Let Smashing Katie say it for you with a very funny collection of gifts that make finding the right words quite easy. Smashing Katie's gift are designed to empathize, add comic relief and encourage healing all at the same time. The new challenge will be narrowing your selection to just a few.
Schmidt states, "We understand what it means to get your heart ripped out and feel as if no one gets what you are going through. Yes everyone needs to move on, but there is nothing worse than someone telling you to buck up and in turn minimize what you are going through. It is very important to feel raw emotion and pain in order to come out ahead in the end."
Friends no longer need to search the web for that one perfect gift to give or thought to share with a friend in need. Schmidt continues, "Smashing Katie is the new source for cheeky, quirky and clever gifts that will help solidify friendships and un-break hearts."
Tired of traditional hallmark-inspired gifts, Smashing Katie created a unique collection that caters to modern single gals. From the "I wasn't calling her a slut, okay maybe I was!" coffee mug and the "Gardening, yoga, bubble baths, medication and I still want to smack somebody!" flask to "The Ex" knife block in the shape of a man with knives stored in his body and the "High maintenance doesn't even begin to cover it!" messenger bag, Smashing Katie's gifts are current, unique and will put a smile on any broken hearted gal's face.
The website is cute, clever and very relatable. With search categories including Diva Department; Eat, Drink and Be Unmarried; Breakup Care Packages and more, SmashingKatie.com has created a unique space for single gals everywhere. There is even a newsletter you can subscribe to that will cover dating tips, clever pickup lines, not so great pickup lines, and the ever so popular breakup story where gals can write in and share their own experiences.
And the story behind the company is relatable to single gals as well. Schmidt states, "We understand the roller coaster of emotions one goes through during a breakup. Smashing Katie spawned from such a breakup where a real Katie was the inspiration. But we all have our own Katie whom we want to scold for playing an unnecessary part. Whether a cheating lover, a lying friend, a betraying neighbor or an unsupportive confidant, all 'Katie's' should motivate and inspire gals to transform into better people."
