Ben is hands-down the hardest person to shop for. Well, he and my dad actually. So I get reeeeaaally excited when I think of something good for him. And a few years ago I found IT. You know, that thing you know they'll love yet never knew they needed?
I came across silver cufflinks in the shape of Africa. I know, perfect. So I had them sent from Paris. Yes...PARIS. And they took a month to get here, just barely making it in time for his big day.
...then he lost them. Well, I won't put the blame on him. Who knows where they are, but at any rate the dry cleaners doesn't have them...and sadly neither do we.
So time went by and he kept saying how much he missed them and how they were the perfect gift. So I went on Etsy. And found some that in my opinion, are even more fun than the silver ones (and ever more affordable!).
