Now that Christmas is a distant memory, this may seem late to mention. But my friend Lucy is a really gifted gifter. Here's what she gave me for Christmas this year, in a sugar skull/pop art bag, on New Year's Eve, over sushi:
A hand-drawn and lettered Dune-themed card that she made.
A message in a bottle necklace in which she hand-lettered an Edna St. Vincent Millay quote.
She customized the wrapping paper with Julian Koster of Neutral Milk Hotel and glitter.
A box containing:
an out of print Lemony Snicket book
Every single detail of this was thoughtful, personal and special. Gifting is a talent and she's got it!
