Giving Better Gifts
February, the Month of Awakening... as in awakening late on the 15th with a lump on your head after having given your dearest neofriend a Packet of Gravel for Valentine's Day? Don't ask me how I know. I just know. *shifty eyes* You are not alone. Each year, thousands of Neopians hit the shops in hopes of finding the "perfect" gift...
Guide to Gooey Goodies
