Harriet Carter Gifts began its empire as a mail-order catalogue in 1958 selling a decorative wood switch plate that sold like hotcakes. Through the years, this business has remained in the Carter family and they have joined the 21st century by making it a significant presence on the internet and late-night TV commercials. They have gifts that people had no idea that they needed. Some highlights are a chinstrap that prevents thoughtless husbands from snoring all night and a trusty cane with headlights so the user doesn't take a tumble if the electricity goes out. Not only are these gifts fun, they are immensely practical. Enjoy shopping at Harriet Carter Gifts -- a fun place to shop.
