Every mom needs a friend who tells it like it is. And that’s the basis for Naughty Betty, a cheeky Glencoe-based gift and greeting card company targeted toward moms who can laugh at the often unglamorous truths of parenthood.
Naughty Betty is the brainchild of moms Christine Montaquila and Courtney Weinberg, who have both worked as advertising creative directors for Chicago’s big agencies. Six years ago, they started the company on the side as a sassy greeting card line.
“We both had kids and started seeing the humor in life and how challenging and yet funny things were,” Montaquila says. “We liked the point of view and honesty and thought it would resonate with women.”
What began with 12 cards now includes more than 200, as well as gift and party items such as cocktail napkins, cups, candles, note pads, luggage tags, and more.
“We call ourselves the brutal truth prettied up,” Montaquila says. “We’re humor therapy. Every woman needs a laugh in her day.”
