Whether I’m shopping for my mother, my significant other, or my best friend, sometimes I like to be extra nice and buy them a real special gift. One that hurts my wallet a little bit but who cares because I know they’ll really love it. Like a new sound system that I overheard them talking about. Or a colorful pillow that matches their personality exactly. Or a beautiful, hand-knit scarf that supports the economy of Ethiopian weavers. Or even a Wacom writing tablet to make blogging a little more fun. Oh, and that knot ring? That’s what I want…just in case any boyfriends of 6+ years are wondering what to get me. Just kidding! No but seriously. Anyway, these big ticket items are special in their own way and would be the perfect gifts for all of my favorite people.
