Gift Guide-Your Coworker or Secret Santa

Love it or hate it, buying gifts for coworker or the office secret santa is a necessary evil. I personally love it! Are you stuck? Allow me to make some suggestions from the wonderful selection of handmade jewelry i have at If your looking to spend about $25 the Swarovski pearl and Earrings set is a good way to go. I personally love the look of pearls and chain combined. This necklace is gorgeous. Just click on the photo to go directly to the listing.

The "earthy" co worker. The leafy brass branch earrings would be great for her. They are made from brass leaf stampings and embellished with vintage beads, green flowers and other earthy toned beads.

Your bestest girlfriend co worker- you whine over how so and so is a jerk and how your boss doesn't know how to tuck in his shirt or tie his tie because his wife left him. She would probably love the sterling silver tear necklace with a blue chalcedony accent bead. Or a pair of sterling silver circle earrings.

Your lady boss- If your boss is a lady no doubt that she LOVES earrings. You want to get on her good side. These earrings are my one of my personal favorites. The filigree drop earrings, with a swarovski crystal accent bead. They are only $15 at but she will think you spent way more. These are sure to get you in her good graces for at least another year.

So whichever you choose, im sure you have made an awesome decision. and I make it super easy too. Everything from comes in a gift box with a signature burgundy red ribbon. All ready to give!

Gifts for your childs KEEP teacher, YMCA counselor or other daycare.

For the people who have the job of taking care of your children all year round. The YMCA counselors, KEEP teachers and other daytime caregivers/ babysitters. There are a ton of items that they would love from but you can understand most of these items may not be child friendly.

These are people you may not chat with alot but want to get them something nice. Do they wear earrings? If so I would like to suggest the leafy bits earrings. They dangle a modest 1 inch, and are very petite otherwise. These are probably best for caregivers of school age children.

For caregivers of younger children a bracelet may be a better idea for worktime. This gorgeous bracelet made with round faceted brown and red glass beads is gorgeous and doesnt have alot of charms or any things that could risk hurting baby.

Of course you don't need to buy her something she can wear to work. Caregivers have lives outside of caring for our children. Im sure you could find many other things from that would be sure to please! And when in doubt has Gift certificates! Just shoot me an email at if you would like a denomination that is not listed. Useable on any items in my shop and NO expiration date.
