Hello beautiful people,
Because Christmass is near I have something beautiful for 2 of you at the end of this post.
But first, let’s talk about presents.
Presents became lately something superficial, more like “a must” than something that comes from the heart.
I experienced a few things in my life that taught me the importance of giving, one of them is the following:
We had this talk many times before. We come from a, to say the list, very traditional family where one of the many rules was: no jewellery. “A.” was kinda ok with it. Me tho’… Me, on the other hand… I’ve just got my ears pierced those days. Let me tell you this: He was not impressed.
“Why did you need to do it?!” He was asking, “Why do you have to be different by the rest of the fam?”and he continued with a bunch of other questions like this and explanations on “why not”. So I told him my side of the story, and he told me his opinion on it. What we concluded on that day on this topic is that we have different opinions; period!
No long after “A” asked me to come meet him. He hands me two boxes the side of my palm. The upper side had glass, you could see inside. They was black, wooden but classy. In the first one was a stunning pendant on a silver necklace, and in the next one was a beautiful set of earrings. I was so surprised, and didn’t even try to hide it.
“I thought you don’t like me wearing earrings!” I finally found myself saying.
“I don’t necessary, but you do! Plus that, it’s a very beautiful set, and it would look very good on you.”
This gesture of “A.”- one of my favorite humans and best-friends (who I miss alot)- the way his gift made me fell, actually saying that what I wanted was more important than his opinion on the matter, made me change the way I see gifts.
It made me realize how much value it can add to a relationship and how much it can actually say, without words.
I do intend to give you a few hints on how to make present that really matter. This will be in the same POST where we announce theeee WINNERs for the GIVEAWAY presents.
Since we are talking about perfect presents I would like to introduce you to somebody who you may already know: @Miriam
My sister is the one with the gifted hands. She can make anything look pretty, and she always had a passion for creating stuff. When she opened her jewellery business, I was already sure that it will be a success. Why? Because she is very talented and always searching for beauty.
This is one early tip I have for you: – handmade, unique presents. Even if the person you give the gift to is yourself, always look for things that have value, things that say something about who you are, that could mark a memory in your life; something different and personal.
One of the best places to find this kind on present is: @Miriam Jewelry.
Check her online stores and social media; press on:
