It's officially cuffing season and if you're like me, you had to google what that meant. Apparently, this is the time of year where everyone is in agreement that getting in a relationship seems like a great idea. I mean, what sounds better than hot chocolate dates, ordering in Pad Thai while binging Westworld, or holding each in love (and fear) Tuesday night as the election results roll in? Whether you're in a relationship or really leaning in to that Tinder hustle, we've got some gift tips for the lover in your life. Check out our One Who Swiped Right collection and feel the like.
Kristen Liu Wong is a multi-disciplinary LA based artist who explores bold topics, including love and sex, through fantastic imagery. We asked for her opinion on how to shop for friends and loves this season!
Who is your hardest person to shop for and why?
The hardest person to shop for is definitely my friend Emily. She has very specific and unique tastes that tend to rule out a lot of easy gift ideas. Half the time when I do find something that I know she would love, it's expensive! I would love to be able to get her a taxidermy fox eventually, but quality ones can cost upwards of $1000, which I definitely don't have.
What's your best tip for finding a gift for hard people to shop for?
Prepare in advance! When I see something that is perfect for someone and completely unique I buy it ahead of time so that I have it for later, especially when it comes to people that are difficult to shop for. I'm always keeping an eye out!
Give us an example of the perfect gift.
I feel like the Angela Dalinger t-shirt "The Man Who Uses His Tongue As A Weapon" would be the perfect gift for my boyfriend! We both are actually fans of her work so he'd really appreciate her illustration on the tee.
