📍 Larchmont, NY | Founder of To&From, a gifting intelligence company
Bridget’s Self Description
I'm a mom, wife, entrepreneur, traveler, connector and friend. I love all of my roles but don't necessarily want to be defined by one over another. My wanderlust runs deep.
I have a huge challenge finding good gifts for my wife. In my haste to find her gifts, I stumbled upon Bridget’s website To&From. I’m really impressed by the business she is building to solve a challenge I think we all face: finding good gifts!

*Written in their Own Words*
I obsess over a lot of brands - but a few favorites are Definite Articles Socks (weird, I know, but I love the innovation), Tata Harper (worth every penny), Parker Clay (beautiful products on a mission), and Bite Society (the Macha Salsa is totally addictive)
📺 Movie: I don't watch a lot of TV but I am really excited for The Crown, Season 5.
Currently obsessing over Immaculate: How the Steelers Saved Pittsburgh. Also love following content related to building my business, "momming", home decor and entertaining, cooking and more!
💪 Well-Being Routine:
On a perfect day I get up at 5:30 a.m. to workout and then have a cup of coffee and organize my day before my family wakes up and the calls start. I am so much more productive when I take this time for myself.
🍴Food and Drink: See recommendations on the Rambull Google Maps List
We relocated to Larchmont, NY during the pandemic and are really loving getting reconnected to NYC restaurants and the terrific food scene around us. A couple of NYC standouts have been Abita - a Kosher Italian in Manhattan (we happened to go with friends who are Kosher, but it's also good for vegetarian friends); Hawksmoor if you're on an expense account and want steak; and I always love the Campbell Apartment in Grand Central (esp. if you want to impress out of town guests).
💼 Professional Advice:
I always give the same advice to young people starting in their career - solve the problems you see, not just the ones related to your specific role and take the face time with your boss or your team when it's offered (or seek it out when it's not). Early in my career I never thought a task was too small and was always bringing ideas to the table. In turn, when exciting projects came along I was always top of mind for my bosses.
I hope all of the gifts I give are a big hit, but a question I get asked a lot is "What do I get the Tweens/Teens?". A gift that always works is the Piñatagram. This age group is so hard to please and this is just a great surprise for a kid who is working hard at something, has a tough time or an injury/sickness, or just needs a pick me up!
🎵 Music: Appalachian Gothic
A lifelong friend just released his first solo album, Appalachian Gothic, which he calls a love letter to Appalachia. It's worth a listen.
✈ Travel: Visit Copenhagen & Timber Cove in California
We visited Copenhagen this summer and it was incredible. The perfect location for a quick getaway...
For something closer to home, if you are planning a California Wine Country trip, I highly recommend Timber Cove in Sonoma. We planned to get married there (but then Covid), and it's the most beautiful, special place. Incredible scenery, very cool rooms and common areas, and incredibly relaxing.
🔌 Personal Plug: To&From for all of your gifting needs.
Thank you Bridget!
