Happy Thanksgiving!


The holidays are upon us and it’s my favorite time of year. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we have lots to be thankful for here at MyNiceTie.com. As you may have read in previous newsletters, we donate 20% of every sale to Kiva, a nonprofit that provides entrepreneurs in developing countries with little to zero interest loans to help make dreams come true.

To date, we have funded almost $19,000 in loans. These businesses have ranged from water sanitation services, construction, and small businesses that provide goods in rural villages.

None of this would have been possible without you and your support, so we give you a heartfelt thank you! We also would like to give a discount code for the rest of the year for 15% off your entire purchase! Just use the code THANKFUL18 and feel free to share with friends and family.

Speaking of friends and family, I am getting pretty pumped for Thanksgiving dinner. Nothing says Thanksgiving like one of my most cherished childhood memories - my mom’s fruit salad. Mmmm. I’ve included a recipe below for your own indulgence. I know it isn’t fancy or gourmet, but it is definitely love on a plate at my house.

Mom’s Fruit Salad


  • Two cans of fruit salad. You can be fancy and cut up your own fruit concoction, but it’s just not the same.
  • A container of whipped cream, the tub works better than the can. Again, you can channel your inner pastry chef and whip up your own, but that’s not how mom made it!
  • A bag of mini marshmallows.


  • Drain your fruit salad. Or chop it up and make it yourself if you’re trying to show off.
  • Mix in your whipped topping
  • Add surviving mini marshmallows and gently fold in
  • Instant Thanksgiving!

Here’s another Thanksgiving tip for you, if you tuck a collared shirt into sweatpants, no one can tell when you’re seated and you can eat twice as much fruit salad. Don’t forget the tie!

We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving full of love and food and surrounded by the people who make you feel the most genuine gratitude.
