Men delaying a trip to the department store to buy gifts for a special someone is a tale as old as time. The number of times I received frantic calls for the perfect last-minute birthday gift are frankly innumerable. A few weeks back, I found the perfect solution in Lionel Geneste, who founded the ultimate guide to gifting, bSophisticated. It offers a concierge-esque experience, curating the perfect gift or date.
The site recommends the options based on a questionnaire and archetypes best representative of the style and personality of the lady the gentleman is looking to woo. My personal favorite is Lionel’s newsletter, which references upcoming holidays and offers fabulous date ideas to really impress. He once pulled together a date idea for a Pisces (comme moi) that made me swoon at my desk – a gold Valentino Pisces ring tucked into a Charlotte Olympia fish-out-of-water bag with a handwritten note to be delivered to the lady’s office. The note reads, “La Grenouille tonight at 8pm…”
And who doesn't love a little surprise? Trust me, she'll thank you.
