I love to give gifts, and finding the perfect treasure for someone I care about in a sea of thrift store junk or between Etsy-algorithm mistakes brings me unparalleled joy.The thrill I get out of gift-giving isn’t even conditional based on what I get in return — I just really like making the people I love happy, and letting them...
