The art of gift-giving: a bff gift guide

Until a few weeks back one of my best friends lived next door, now she has moved to California for a year and it still feels weird. I won’t get to see her on Christmas, or NYE, not even on my birthday and she won’t even be back by the time it’s her birthday. That […]
