Based out of Los Angeles, The Giving Keys employs only those who are looking to transition out of homelessness.  So, in a sense, when you buy one of these “Classic Pendants“, (or other products from their website), your actually helping to provide someone with the key to a new life.  Moreover, each re-purposed key is meant to be paid forward based on the sentiment hand-stamped on it: “hope”, “let go”, “strength”, and etcetera.  When you encounter someone who could use the message on the key, pass it on to them, and then share your story on The Giving Keys website.  The Classic Pendants shown above retails for $35.00 US and comes on a 27″ chain (there a variety of chains to choose from).  There are also a number of words to choose from, or you can customize your own, (9 character limit), for an additional $5.00.  You can purchase these keys online, or search the website to find a local retailer.

Let’s admit it: a cute name doesn’t hurt when trying to pick out a shade of nail polish.  Pretty Please Nail Polish allows you to personalize your shade by giving it a fun, customized name.  Simply choose one of the 25 colours on their website, come up with a name (up to 2 lines of 14 characters each, which gets put onto the front of the bottle), and purchase. One bottle of polish costs $12.00 US, and the price decreases with the more bottles you purchase (of the same name and colour).  The polish is cruelty free, vegan friendly, and made in the USA.  These would make great holiday party favours, placeholders at the dinner table, stocking stuffers, or a fun gift to exchange with friends (why not make a full “line” of nail polish inspired by inside jokes, experiences, or vacations?).

What’s in a name? Affordable Personalized Name Nacklaces

Name Necklace

A few years back, after seeing Carrie’s customized name necklace (and my other  celebrities alike), I was determined to get one for myself.  However, after researching and seeing that most were between $200.00-$300.00, I was thrilled to find www.mynamenecklace.com (there’s now even a www.mynamenecklacecanada.com website too).  This company offers great quality, beautiful pieces for a fraction of the cost of other vendors.  Better yet? They even have free shipping, and often have promo codes to save 10% to 20% off!Carrie

I purchased the “Carrie Style Name Necklace” in sterling silver for less than $40.00.  I loved it so much that I went back and purchased another in rose gold.  My only piece of advice would be that you should be sure to take it off when showering/bathing and avoid spraying it with perfume, as it can weaken the metal between the letters, causing it to slightly bend or break.  A solution to this, if you prefer leaving your jewelry on 24-7, is that they offer “double strength” versions of their necklaces (slightly more expensive).  If you treat these necklaces well, they’ll last forever (I’m proof!).

I’ve also purchased the “Sterling Silver Monogramed Necklace” (under $50.00).  A tip when ordering a 3 letter monogramed item: your last initial always goes in the middle, followed by your first initial on the left, and your middle initial on the right.  (Example: if your name was Sarah Margaret Jones, your monogram would be sJm.)

Be sure to check out their website as they offer gorgeous rings, key chains, earrings, and more in a variety of colours, materials, and styles! (How awesome are these Acrylic Monogram Earrings, and Leather Wrap Bracelet?!)
