It’s ironic how it’s sometimes harder to get gifts for those closest to you. An example would be the friends, the family you choose to be with. How do you say thank you to the people who take your early morning rants, tolerate your silly quirks, and give your the right slap on the wrist when you’ve got troubles with your significant other?
We don’t blame you if you’re in a rut about what to get them. Before signing over an “I owe you” note yet again or promising to treat them to lunch next time you see them, here are a couple of items we feel will fit the people who just get you at your highs and lows.
