Link love (Powered by summer sandals and stupid tax)

I’ve come to realise that I am quite rubbish at coming up with suggestions for ideas for presents. What makes a good gift for a significant other? Perfume? Chocolate? Jewellery?

Personally, if I can’t be whisked away on a trip, I like to be wined and dined. Or rather, just dined, as I don’t like wine.

    I have a hard time with gift ideas too. Hubby and I usually just go out on a nice date (to somewhere that we normally wouldn’t spend the money on). I have a hard time telling my family ideas too…we don’t really NEED anything, and I don’t want to haul anything back with us. This year I’m thinking I’ll ask for a gift card to somewhere that I can work on updating my “adult” wardrobe. I know that’s boring for them, but…too bad. haha8

    I’m really good at getting thoughtful, sentimental, awesome presents for people that are personally picked out for whoever it is… but I reaaaaally suck at coming up with present suggestions when I don’t really care, or i’m not the one doing the giving. I also suck at answering “what do you want for your birthday/xmas” because I will most certainly have a handful of things that I really want in the back of my mind… but i always feel that it sucks and is insincere if you TELL them what you want, specifically. Unless it’s like, something practical and totally not sentiment/awesomeness-based where it’s something more you NEED.
