Dear Advice for the Gift-Lorn,
OkayвЂ¦ hereвЂ™s a puzzler for you. IвЂ™m a freshman in college and my dorm hallway is doing a Secret Snowman. The girl IвЂ™m supposed to buy a gift for lives on the opposite end of the hallway and I donвЂ™t know her very well (which is to say, not at all). Do you have any ideas for mass-appeal gifts at college-friendly prices? HELP!
Dear Searching Snowman,
Oh, the fun вЂ“ and the agony вЂ“ of the secret santa (although we love the Secret Snowman twist!). You donвЂ™t REALLY know the personвЂ¦you want to be generous (if only cheaply so), you donвЂ™t want to presume or вЂ“ heaven forbid вЂ“ offend. OK, weвЂ™ve got just the thing: a Skeem candle вЂ“ soy-based, and hand-poured in a beautiful painted glass jar! Add matches from several of your favorite local spots (in case sheвЂ™s newer to the area than you?), and a bottle of juice in a flavor that coordinates with the scent you choose (like blood orange, jasmine tea or pomegranate). Tie a note onto the bow explaining that the jar becomes a drinking glass once the candleвЂ™s done.
Hope your Secret Snowman has something great up his sleeve for you!
