Gifts for Your "Friend"

We get it, you’d feel awkward buying a gift for yourself no matter how awesome that gift is or how much you deserve it. BUT, it would be a fine act, noble even, to buy one of these unforgettable gifts for your “friend.” What “friend” wouldn’t love to pry open a wooden crate and sample pounds of exotic animal meats? Or spend hours carving a trusty pipe or knife that will become an instant favorite…for your “friend,” of course. You should probably just ship it to yourself so you can give it to your “friend” in person.
