Sentimental Gifts For Your Best Friend

  • Sentimental Sand Custom Karma Bracelet
  • A day at the beach provides time to think, pumps you up with positive energy, and can even work as reset button. Holly Daniels Christensen's beachy bracelet lets its wearer carry the good vibes of sun and surf everywhere so you can send that light and love back into the universe. Holly puts a pinch of sand gathered from your choice of one of thousands of picturesque world beaches into a silver-plated bezel and seals it with jewelry-grade resin. Then, she places the lovely bit of beach in a band of ocean-colored beads. An elegant symbol of where you've been and where you're going, it's a wearable reminder to keep cultivating good karma.


  • Personalized Family Recipe Board
  • Nonna's pie crust gives you instant potluck cred and keeps a family tradition going strong. Preserve those special recipes on something sturdier and more beautiful than a paper card. This unique maple or cherry wood cutting board showcases the ingredients and instructions for one meaningful dish. Submit a scanned image of your recipe card, and the exact directions are etched in your loved one's handwriting. (If you don't have the card, you can enter a typed recipe and it'll be etched in a lovely script that feels handwritten.) It's a sentimental gift for your favorite cook, a child moving out for the first time, or a foodie friend.


  • Glass Birth Month Flower
  • These meticulously handblown glass flowers, one in honor of each birth month, will keep blooming long after the birthday cake is a sweet, candlelit memory. Talented artisans in Mexico imbue every flower with its own unique personality - from the sprightly daisy to the proud sunflower to the friendly daffodil and the bashful lily of the valley, conveyed with intricate details and lifelike postures" that blend art with whimsy. Each of the twelve sculptures in translucent borosilicate glass embodies the symbolic and sentimental meanings associated with its month. Delicate and exquisite, they stand on unobtrusive clear bases so you can put them where you'll see them and smile, many times a day.


  • Personalized Photo Stamp Ornament
  • Elvis has his own stamp. So do Rachel Carson, James Baldwin, and Desi Arnaz. You deserve one, too. But not to stick on an envelope and send away. Any photo you feel all glowy about (or makes you lol) can be printed onto Baltic birch plywood, personalized, and turned into a one-of-a-kind keepsake ornament with forever sentimental power. Whether you choose a pro wedding shot or a fun family vacation snap, just nestle it on a tinselly branch. Then neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night will move that precious moment from its appointed tree.
