Deposits and cash gifts
These are my favorite methods for accepting deposits and cash gifts:
Venmo: Info available upon request
Prepaid gift cards (such as Vanilla Visa): These can be purchased with cash! Buy these at any store such as CVS, Target, etc. Send me a photo of the receipt, and break the card out of the package and also photograph the front and back.
CashApp: Info available upon request
Tokens of your esteem
Here are a few of my favorite things. Maybe you love them too? Gifts are never expected, but always appreciated.
Books: see my Goodreads wishlist for ideas. Or, bring your favorite book to our date — it’s the ultimate ice breaker.
A lovey bottle of crisp white wine, brut champagne (such as Moet), gin or silver tequila
Flowers from the market or from Flowerbx, which offers same-day and next-day delivery in NYC
Vintage/antique jewelry from Lang Antiques (SF), Doyle & Doyle (NYC), London Heritage Antiques (UK), or AntiqueAnimalJewelry (UK) (my favorites: diamonds, pearls and sapphires from the Art Deco, Victorian, and Georgian eras)
Handbags or leather goods from Celine
Lingerie from Freolic, ELF Zhou, Fleur of England, Bordelle, Fleur du Mal, Marjolaine and Loveday London. If you enjoy browsing, Pleasurements and Xenses are wonderful websites with a wide variety of brands and fast and reliable shipping. For lingerie, I wear a 34A or 32B bra (or Small) and a size Medium garter and bottom.
