And whether that ranges from playfulness to even something that is really, really intimate, just like these pop-tarts disclose maybe what type of product it is.
Now, I wouldn't recommend putting felt inside of a toaster, but the human quality behind this is really, really lovely. Keep this in mind, tip number 10, keep it human.
