Gifts for your friend who’s always happy about something

On the flip side of the Pessimistic Friend, there are also those sunshine-y people who are never down for long. You know, the sun will come out tomorrow type deals. We need them as much as we need anyone, and we want to shower them with happy, optimistic gifts!

If they're into journaling, may we suggest the Affirmation Ball, Evidence the World is Basically Good: A Logbook for Optimists Journal, Hector and the Search of Happiness, Why You're Really, Really Awesome Pad, High Five Nifty Notes, Smiley Face soap and You are a Good Person soap.


Do they have a lot of energy? Get them a Rainbow Stunt Streamer. They're so magical. Don't Forget a mini Pusheen, and a Glitter Wand!


What about a GIANT PUSHEEN? Qwilly shown for size comparison.


How about some positive Blue Q socks.

We have no problem with stupid questions. They make life just a little more interesting.

Here are just a few ways you can ask stupid questions today! To stupidity and beyond!
