Situation: you’re on the hunt for a gift for someone, be it for a birthday, an anniversary, or some other special occasion. Problem: you’ve searched the mall, you’ve raided their favorite store, and you’ve even secretly called their friends for ideas. Nothing’s working. You’ve just about resigned yourself to giving them the dreaded gift card (you shudder at the backlash you’ll receive from such an impersonal gift!).
