About Us

Owned and operated by Barbara Weiler Litwin in Newton, MA, Sense and Humor was conceived in the 1970's when Barbara would spend countless hours scouring New York Magazine's "Best Bets" section, where she would find fun, one-of-a kind gifts. After years of being the "go-to" person for gift-giving and general event  favor ideas, Barbara decided to channel her creative energy into a store of her own. Barbara hopes you will use this site to choose a gift, chuckle, or just procrastinate in doing whatever you really need to be doing.
