I believe the trick to giving a great gift is to give something that you’d also enjoy while considering their style and known needs. This way it ends up being thoughtful and personal, and even if they don’t love it – the simple act of giving it will be a joyous occasion because you’ll be excited about it. My rule of thumb, when in doubt… go functional. Here are some life-simplifying, thoughtful, beautiful gifts you can get your gifting going on the right foot. No sole searching required. Happy happy! Joy joy!
