My quiz experience went like this: Occasion? Just because. Gender? Female. (They also have a non-conforming option.👍) Age range? 25-34. How do you know your giftee? Friend. (Being your own friend is important, right?) What do they do in their free time? Travel, explore the outdoors, host at their home. Pick their poison (drink of choice)? Coffee. What moves them? Animals, fair trade, education, sustainability. Describe their look? Casual. Presto! I checked out, and a few days later, I received (drumroll please)… a *gorgeous* orange leather clutch from Haiti Design Co. that I honestly would have bought on my own.
