n cette période de confinement, on doit être créatif pour s’occuper et socialiser! C’est aussi une période idéale pour prendre soins de soi.

“Buying gifts for your friends has its pros and cons: You may know them like the back of your hand (their unique tastes and quirks, what TV show they’re currently bingeing, and what they already own and need), but it’s still tough narrowing down the best gift option in a long mental laundry list of things you know they would like. We believe in getting the right balance of the unexpected and tasteful, so ahead we’ve compiled a list of very specific options for every type of person, from the friend who’s your ride-or-die work wife, to the friend who’s in your book club, to the person who regularly tags you in Co-Star memes. Bonus: You won’t find anything on this list that exceeds $100.”
