10 Things to Buy Now and Gift Later

I’m a really, really good shopper.  I know that’s a silly thing to be good at, but it’s true.  I love to shop.  Actually, I love to look and find new things.  Explore, if you will.  But in a store.  Or online.  I don’t really discriminate.  As I’ve gotten older (and a bit wiser) I find I like buying for other people even more than I like buying for me.  The thought of giving someone the perfect thoughtful gift makes me happy.  And getting to buy something I really love, but don’t have to find a spot for it in my trying-to-be-minimalist-but-really-i-am-not home, makes me even happier.

So today, I’m using my really, really good shopping skills to help you find 10 timeless gifts to stock in your gift closet – all on summer sale so you can stock up while saving dough.
