Gift Tip #9: Earrings

Check out these cute earrings! The perfect "I'm just thinking about you gift"
Oh, I don't know...maybe placed on the nightstand in a cute jewelry box or placed on the cutting board before dinner time to be "found" by the chef of the evening. Just creating a gift scene for all of you!

I came across the rosebud earrings via the Serendipity blog. Sarah featured the gold rosebud earrings and I decided to feature the silver ones and a few others from Etsy shop, hotpins. To see blog author Sarah's original post about the gold rosebud earrings go here: One of her friends even purchased a pair and she said the craftmanship is awesome. Thanks for the first hand review, Sarah!
Gifts that have orginality like these earrings can't be beat. Be sure to pair these earrings up with a sweet note and beautiful presentation and you'll be set!

Fun Facts:

  • Pierced earrings first made their debut in the Middle East as early as 3,000 B.C. and were intended to provide strangers with a quick and easy clue as to the wearer's religious, political or tribal identity.
  • In some parts of Africa, heavier ear weights are applied to young girls' ears in order to elongate their ear lobes over a period of time to achieve feminine beauty.
  • Originally crafted of metals that could be bent, flattened and twisted into unique designs and hoops, earrings became more elaborate in the second century A.D. when assorted gems were introduced.
