Gifted Asked: What is the best gift you’ve ever been given?
You Responded: “My husband bought me a diamond and ruby ring for our 5 year anniversary from Birks. When we were poor and dating, he bought me one just like it, but it was $12 from a street vendor in the Beaches. I cherished it and wore it for years. For our 5 year anniversary, he bought me the real thing, which I thought was very romantic.” – Ali, Toronto
Diamond and ruby ring, $810.
Psst…Ali, the founder of ChickAdvisor.com, a popular Canadian reviews website for women to share advice on their favourite products and local places, knows a thing or two about style.
I also got her to share her favourite gift shops:
“I usually don’t shop in ‘gift stores’ but I have come across some really cool ones in Toronto. I really like Ziggy’s at Home on Queen West. They have such a great assortment of gifts for the home. Unfortunately when I shop there I tend to be like “one for them, one for me, one for them one for me…” Teatro Verde is gorgeous too.”
And her favourte gifts to give:
I’m an experience gifter. I bought my husband a weekend in New York for his birthday a couple of years ago. I sometimes prefer giving experiences over things because the memories last longer.
