Unique Gift Ideas For Men Who Are Hard To Shop For

We all know a man who is hard to shop for. Perhaps because he just buys whatever he wants and doesn't need anything or maybe because we don't have enough in common with him to understand his wants. Whatever the reason, hopefully these gift ideas will give you a place to start when shopping for this particular person.

Stockist Spotlight: Kae Apothecary

This is the fifth in a series of posts that talk about the stores that carry my products. I had been fan-girling over Kae Apothecary well before I ever went into the shop. I was following along on Facebook and Instagram and wishing it was my store.

I might not notice it until I lay down, but as soon as I bend an elbow under the pillow or curl my legs...there it is, tormenting me.

Stockist Spotlight: White Rabbit

This is the fourth in a series of posts that talk about the stores that carry my products. I had known about a cool little shop in Iowa City through a fellow crafter who works there part-time. I chatted her up about it one day and she thought I should definitely reach out to the manager, Molly. I did so and Thumbprint Soap products have been available at White Rabbit since the end of summer 2018. First, as a small collection; and now as a pretty large collection!
