Jewelry With a Purpose
Know someone who loves earrings and also loves to give back?
Then, a pair of NYC-based fine jewelry brands, Gabriel & Co.’s ‘Stronger Together’ Huggie Earrings, are the perfect gift.
This campaign was created especially for Jewelers for Children (JFC) and its charity partner, the Organization of Autism Research (OAR), with all proceeds donated to the cause.
Pricing for the earrings are $70
For Your Teenager
I’m always looking for creative gifts for my teens that will engage them without involving a screen. I love The Woobles for so many reasons: they’re cute, they involve learning, and it’s something anyone can do; they have so many options. My oldest loves Pac-Man, and The Woobles sent us a Pac-Man kit. I was concerned it would sit on her desk and would require some encouragement for her to open it. I was so wrong. She opened it within minutes and spent the next few hours learning to crochet.
From The Woobles website, I love what their creator wrote: “But The Woobles is actually about more than just crochet. It’s about proving to yourself that you can always learn something new. Changing how you see yourself and your potential to grow. And building the confidence that you can take on whatever comes your way.” These will be my go-to for gifting in the future.
