Although there is a great emphasis on gifting at this time of year, gifting is an age-old practice that represents two characteristics that serve as the inspiration behind the shop: human kindness and thoughtfulness. Half Hitch Goods believes that the pursuit of a gift should be based on knowledge of a person and what might delight them. Each item in the shop has a story behind it, which makes a gift purchased from Half Hitch Goods all the more special. For the stories behind the products, the Half Hitch Journal is a must read.
