FRUGALISTA GIFT IDEAS: PRESENTING LOVE, MAYBE?

LOVE THEM, MAYBE? TOKEN LIKE/LOVE

You really, really like them. Just not to the point where you want a grandiose gift to give them the wrong idea—yet. Or, the gift recipient’s simply a really good friend.  Either way, you can wow them with a little something memorable.

Jewelry, again. is one of the easiest routes for this task.
