Juvenile Gifts

A stuffed animal may seem like a cute idea when there’s one shopping day (or less!) left and you’re desperate or confused, but follow this rule of thumb: if your five-year-old niece will like it, scratch if off your list. Though women appreciate sweet and thoughtful gifts, anything in line with furry toys, IOU coupon books or pink heart-shaped picture frames just won’t cut it as the main gift attraction. Grown-ups give spa treatment certificates and shiny trinkets in jewelry boxes.
