Pressies...!

GIFTS & PRESENTS

BIRTHDAY?  MOTHER'S DAY?  ANNIVERSARY?  CHRISTENING PRESENT?  CHRISTMAS? (ouch...)

I like to think about giving people "presents" rather than "gifts" - it's a word thing!  - but whatever you call them, and I know not everyone possesses this gene, I have always really enjoyed finding presents for people.

Of course I think all my jewellery and vintage items would make really lovely presents!  But here is an idea for a pretty special gift - perhaps for those who struggle even to see the point of them!  It is a little hallmarked, silver-topped antique, faceted glass pot - which would be enough of a sweet thing all on its own:

But, hey! What's that inside?  

How about making it even more gorgeous by wrapping up and popping in a little piece of jewellery as a further surprise?  

Here is how it might be as the lucky person opens their dream gift! - see below:

The little jar would be perfect for keeping your earrings in by your bed at night - or you ear plugs during the day, in my case (oops...sorry...tmi!).  Little glass jar available to buy under Antiques and Vintage.  And I am always up for a chat about any possible presents or commissions.
