Do you feel uncomfortable receiving gifts? Me too. I think it's because I only receive them on days when the gift giver feels pressured to buy a gift and therefore it's not really a gift but an obligation.
Why not boycott buying gifts on the 'traditional' gift giving days and buy someone a gift when you see something special you know they'll love - no matter what day it is. The inquisitive look on their face when they receive it is priceless.
Here are 6 ideas of where to find unique gifts:
1. Estate Sales
2. Antique Shops
3. Online Museum or Gallery Shops
You can also order prints from your local library's archives
5. From the artist directly
