And I have to confess to not knowing what to buy for certain Lolita acquaintances. Now, I'm not asking for help in picking gifts for friends - I know my friends and I know what they'd like to get.
But I'm going to a Christmas meet, and we'll be having a Secret Santa exchange and I have no idea what to buy! For the past two years my gifts were rather pitiful - I just bought random plushies I'd liked. I really want to pick something Lolita-friendly and... er... neutral? For instance, I recently got into soap-making, and I thought - hey, making a cupcake-shaped soap is such a great idea! Hand-made and useful! Then I got hit with doubt. What if my recipient hates the aroma I scent the soap with? Or they're allergic to whatever vitamins I put in?
So, um. Any advice? I'm not asking you to reveal whatever you're picking for this year's gift exchanges - but what did you buy previous years? What did you get and liked?
