Gift Guide: Kids

This is the earliest the gift-giving holidays have ever been in my memory & it is a little. bit. crazy. I love giving gifts because it’s just another way I can find creative ways to express myself, so I’m always trying to find or think of really unique gifts my friends and family won’t expect. That being said, this time crunch is seriously making it hard to do that, but not impossible. In honor of all of you who refuse to resort to giving socks, scarves or iTunes cards… I will be posting a new gift-list and some fun DIYs to inspire you!

To kick off, here are my picks for cute and out-of-the-box gifts for the tiny tots in your life:

Current Obsession

On my recent vacation to Kennebunkport, I did some shopping :), which you know already from my last few posts. One of the things I found on my trip, however, was special enough to merit its very own post!

On one of our last days, we had some time before dinner to kill so we walked around cute Dock Square and wandered into a tiny little shop. The inside was very crowded with kitschy little things everywhere, and we were on our way out… BUT THEN… I saw this ring!

I’m obsessed! The green is so vibrant and looks good with my skin tone – really, I just never want to take it off.

I felt a bit like I was cheating on my new favorite jewelry brand, Chloe & Isabel, but this ring was too special not to get. Plus its always exciting when you think there’s nothing in a store for you, but then you find a hidden gem (literally!) that is perfect. Everyone should get themselves a nice gift every once in a while, you deserve it! PLUS, I love wearing this even more because it matches my boyfriend’s birth stone, which makes it all that much more special. My favorite jewelry are the pieces that have meaning behind them, because they will never go out of style. Needless to say, this ring will now be a permanent fixture on my hand.

I may have cheated a little bit on my go-to jewelry, but I haven’t forgotten & neither should you because…. until June 24th you can get 15% OFF ALL ORDERS $125+. Just check out my boutique!
