GIFTING

20130920-115000.jpg Did I ever tell you about the time I got my brother a Build Your Own Canoe kit for his birthday? The good people at Reform School in LA put this one together and I was super-pleased (and oh, so relieved) to find such a thing existed. I feel like it made the perfect gift, considering the year before had landed him with a framed cross-stitch of Bill Murray's head - you know, that kind of thing sets a certain tone, a high standard in your gift giving that is hard to beat.

I'm spending my lunch hour today on the prowl for gifts for my niece Daisy and my friend Melody. Both dreamy ladies, so something I'm very much looking forward to. I like gifts to be something special, something you wouldn't necessarily buy for yourself. And I LOVE the giftwrapping...
