I almost always leave shopping until the last minute – and it’s not because I’m disorganized… ok sometimes I’m disorganized. I just can’t walk into a store and pick something out for someone, I have to imagine myself as them and think “Now, what would I want? What would I appreciate?” I research online, I touch fabrics in stores, I read opening chapters of books, I find out if the concert is coming to town. And if all else fails – I think “What would I never buy myself?” I’ve been told I’m a good gift-giver – like I should do it for a living. And honestly, it’s a trait I’m proud of and yes, I think I’m good at it too. Here are some last minute picks for ye olde V day, hope they spark your gift-giving ideas:

Seriously, Wantful is like the funnest gift to give and receive – and there’s no shipping time involved unless you want them to receive the beautiful printed catalog. I mean, why not let her choose what she wants to give herself? Plus it’s SO great to see what she picks!
