Can Magento sort by hidden (non-public) Attributes?

Hello All,
I would like to be assign various attributes to my products in my catalog and then be able to set up links that display all products with that attribute, but not have it show up in my general shopping filters. For example, I could set up an attribute called Fathers Day Gift and set it to a Yes/No non-required option. I could make all items that I think are great Father’s Day gifts set to Yes, then set up a link on my front end that says Click Here for our Recommended Father’s Day Gifts. Then clicking on it will show all products that are set to yes. Does anyone know how to do this? Or if there is an easier way to accomplish what I’m talking about, please advise. Thanks!
