“If you don’t want to spend money on a gift and you’re not artistic enough to make something handmade that will be very personal and full of thought, then just buy something edible like biscuits, chocolate or ice-cream. Everyone loves to eat
“Someone said even chocolates have grade. This is true but I bet a woman would appreciate even if it’s some bars of mars she can munch on than 500 earrings she’ll never wear. Same price.” She added.
