It’s not chocolate cake, it’s raw vegan cacao cake. And it’s not a coffee cup, it’s a BPA-free Keep Cup. Oh, and it’s not a bag of Haribo, it’s a bag of Prosecco-infused glitter jellies.

We all have one friend (or maybe we ARE that one friend) who is just a bit too notion-y for their own good. Luckily, that means they’re pretty easy to buy for.
