The best presents show the giver was willing to spend a little time and energy picking something out. But finding the right thing shouldn't be so hard that the present ends up wrapped in resentment and tied with an angry bow. So start at Dragonfly. The Boise shop has bags for your bestie, lotions and soaps for grandma, Archie McPhee action figures for your clever 'tween, soft organic clothing, jewelry, cards, incense, notions boxes, scarves, gloves, hats and more. Even the most beautiful wrapping paper can't hide a ran-out-to-buy-something-five-minutes-ago present, but at Dragonfly, you can get your gift shopping done in a hurry and still give a present that shows you give a damn.
