My favorite gift
One of the things I love to do most in this world is to give presents! My favorite gift to give is something personalized, usually a necklace (like this one or this one), a bracelet (like this monogrammed beauty which I wore on my wedding day and also gave to my mom), or a ring. With my dear friend Brittany's birthday coming up, I turned to Bestyle on Etsy to get her this delicate heart ring (another favorite seller of a similar style is Dreaming Tree Creations). Especially for a recently-married friend with new initials, a personalized piece of jewelry is the perfect way to honor her new monogram!
It is also a gift that friends will treasure and hold on to for a long time. Nothing has made me smile more than hearing the story of how my bridesmaids got together to prepare for my bachelorette party one night, only to realize that, without planning it, they were all wearing the rings I had given them for Christmas years before!
