Go Ahead, Make Someone Cry...

Some of the best gifts I've been given, have had meaning or been tailored to my interests. My boyfriend is afraid to shop for me, which is fine because I don't feel like returning things, ha! No, seriously, he assumes that being in love with clothes and accessories, I would want more. But what touched me the most, was when he sent me in the mail, a mix CD with a photo of our favorite place as the cover. Done, he had me at "I Am The Luckiest" by Ben Folds Five.

And when I was moving out of NY, a friend of mine handed me a little pot, which in turn would grow into a 4 leaf clover for good luck. It nearly had me in tears, because I needed some luck and also, someone actually had faith in me that I could take care of a plant.

So, when Kirsten Goede of Objets d'Envy came out with her very sweet and delicate Initial Birthstone Necklaces for $44 ( !!!) I listed five people I wanted to buy this for. With the initial of your choice hand-stamped on the disc and paired with the birthstone of choice, its an everlasting gift. Its not a big necklace, and it can be layered with others, or simply worn as is.

Sure, there are a few companies that offer initial necklaces, but really now, who has $150 + to spend on that? Not me, and not many people I know. So, as holidays are creeping up, or if you feel like someone special in your life deserves something special, look no further than this collection. Maybe you will make someone cry, tears of joy, obviously. Don't be mean.

Very cool. Just ordered one for my soul sister with her initials/birthstone and mine. Will make a great (and tearful) birthday present to give her when she visits me next month. Thanks for the tip KickinKate.
