Check out our stylish picks for sticky gift-giving situations
We all have that friend: the one who’s nice, but just a little bit intimidating because she has tasted the finer things in life. Or your boss, who’s the CEO of a big company, and he just invited you to his important birthday bash tonight. Or the hostess with the mostest, who has welcomed you to her home, which is already filled with beautiful and fancy things. What sort of gifts do you give them?
