Gifts for the Ladies handmade and vintage goods

Amber works in the fashion industry in Durban, South Africa. She has a large — alarmingly large — fashion magazine obsession, married the man of her dreams, thinks flat-faced dogs are the only kind to have, spends perhaps a little too much time with her friend Tumblr, has painted her whole house mint green, and runs the blog Thunder in Our Hearts. When it comes to friends, she’s got all kinds: the stationery-obsessed; neon lovers; and those with feminine taste. Here’s what she’d give ’em.
