There is no greater gift than your company; however, if you're the type who enjoys spoiling a charming lady, I graciously accept thoughtfully chosen gifts of the more tangible variety. I've listed a number of suggestions below, but I also appreciate objects of your choosing as well. If you're not sure about size (indeed, women's clothing is notoriously difficult to fit without the recipient trying it on herself), a gift card is quite versatile and always appreciated! If we've met before and you'd like to mail me a gift of your own selection, simply reach out and ask for my shipping address. A few of my preferred shops are listed below. Whenever possible, I love to support local, independently-owned and/or ethical & sustainable businesses.
