This website is owned by A Matter Of Taste LLC, and we do try to make a trickle of money from the site. We accept site sponsors, paid advertisements and run affiliate links. If you click a link away from the site, work on the assumption we are paid a residual from any purchase you make.

Also please be aware that companies do send us free items to sample and review, so also operate under the knowledge that we haven’t paid directly for the products featured. We’re merely trying to highlight great gift ideas.


The web server that runs this web site keeps log files for web analytic purposes. We also use externally hosted tracking tools like Google Analytics and WordPress Jetpack. We use this analytic data to see where our visitors are coming from and what type of information catches their interest – but we don’t try to link it to specific users.

Registration to the site is not necessary. If you do signup to our email list, we will keep that information as safe and secure as we possibly can. We don’t share that with any advertisers – period.

Please note that from time to time we may deploy tools to the site to identify user demographics and segmentation, such as Facebook Pixel.

Advertisements and third party websites

Advertisements may appear on our site, these are generally delivered by third parties such as Amazon or Google. These third party sites may deliver a cookie to your computer, log your request activity in their server log files or track you using some other web technology. This website also links to hundreds if not thousands of other external websites such as other local blogs – be sure to review the privacy policy of those third party sites directly. In choosing advertising and affiliate partners we aim to use only well respected, trusted companies.
