Great Gifts

I came across the funnest [wait, is that a word?] gift items in this catalog that arrived the other day. I found myself dog-earing the pages so that I could go back and take a second look at my favorites. Here's a few of them:



I loved these 'plates with purpose'. They are platters made from recycled glass that artistically reflect the mission of a non-profit organization. And in each case, a part of the proceeds goes to support local community organizations.
Check out this 'sisters' necklace. So beautiful, and a great gift idea.
Love the locket. Open it, and there's room for a picture, but the word 'loved' is on the top half. Very sweet.
I think the license plate necklaces are very cute. They are actually made from recycled license plates by the same artist who made this.
Oh, and love this origami necklace too. There's several to choose from but I liked this pinwheel design a lot. What great gift ideas! Check them [and much more!] out.
