“Quick! Dig out the fluorescent platypus serving dish from the back of the closet! Your mother is on her way over!”
We’ve all heard those jokes right? And if we’re honest we’ve probably given a gift or two that maybe didn’t hit the mark but our friends and family love us so they continue to find a way to use that majestic platypus serving dish each time we drop by.
We like to recommend seasonal or disposable decor items instead. These types of home decor gifts give your gift recipient permission to not be obligated to love the item forever. While we may be positive that our friend is just going to love that vase or botanical print, that isn’t always the case. They may love us dearly, just not our taste in home furnishings.
