Green Gift Guide 2012 | Gracie & Me GIVEAWAY!


I told you about how much I love Gracie & Me the other day and how it's a great place to shop for beautiful custom necklaces and jewelry.  Well, upon seeing the review Barbara, the owner of Gracie & Me and creator of all of those beautiful pieces offered up a giveaway as part of the Green Gift Guide 2012!  But before we get to that, I want to take this opportunity to tell you about more of my favorite necklaces!

This is the first Christmas my family will spend without my Grandma, who passed away in April.  This has been a very tough year for my Mom as my Grandma was her best friend and rock.  The holiday this year will be especially hard for her as she always spent Thanksgiving and Christmas with my Grandma doing something special.  For the first time in 55 years, she doesn't get to have this special moment with her.  If you know someone who lost a loved one this year, check out the In Memory section.  While it's hard for me to read some of these and think of the people they make me think of that I've lost, including my Grandma, it's a great way to hold their memory, literally, close to the heart.   The simple but meaningful Miss You necklace is a perfect gift at $37.  Customize with the colored birth stone and chain of your choice for a special gift to someone who has lost someone dear this year.

How about we switch over now to a more happy note!  So many of these necklaces would be perfect gifts for my own Mom.  She's a teacher and Barbara offers a great variety of necklaces meant specifically for teachers.  Teachers like my Mom have been great influences on my life.  Now that I'm back in school I recall how a good teacher can make the difference between enjoying school and dreading it, so good teachers SHOULD be recognized.  So if your spouse, parent, cousin, friend, etc. is a teacher, show them how much their hard work means to you, even if you've never taken a class with them.  I especially love the Teach. Inspire. Love Red Apple necklace.  At $43 it is customizable with the chain of your choice and would make a great gift for that teacher in your life.  It perfectly captures how a good teacher views their job and the work they do!

And last but not least, the necklace I would want should my husband actually read this blog and take a hint.  Haha!  C and I were married earlier this year, as you all know, so this is our first Christmas as husband and wife.   When I go to Gracie & Me I am always drawn first to the Weddings & Anniversary section.  There are so, so many beautiful necklaces to choose from that can be customized with names, dates, colors, and meaningful symbols.  Like any good Irish newlywed would be, I am immediately attracted to the Claddagh Necklace.  This necklace can be customized with the name and birthstone color of your choice.  February's birth stone is Amethyst which just happens to be my favorite birthstone, too.  *nudge, nudge* dear Husband!  At $46 its a great and relatively inexpensive Christmas gift for the one you.  Like me. 

WIN IT!

I do know why you are really here.  You want to win a gift certificate to Gracie & Me, don't you?  Well, you're in luck as I have one $35 gift certificate to giveaway to one luck Eco-Friendly and Frugal reader!  Just use the Rafflecopter Widget below to enter!  This giveaway will end on November 30th at 11:59 Rafflecopter Time.  Good luck!
