Santa was very kind to me this year and by Santa I mean my husband, parents, and in-laws. You will notice I didn’t receive any actual jewelry from Tiffany & Co. this Christmas but there were too many items from their new home accessories that I decided to ask for.
I did ask for two items that were jewelry from my husband but he completely surprised me with my actual gifts. So what had I asked for? The first was the Elsa Peretti Bone Cuff in Ruthenthium. Now I know this item is controversial because many people have shared it scratches very easily and I would be better off asking for the sterling silver one but since the moment I tried this on in NYC I was hooked. I love the charcoal color, I think it’s different so I am up for the test. The only other item I asked for was the Tiffany 1837 Hoop Earrings. Some of you may not know this but I just started regularly wearing earrings about 4 years ago and I don’t own a pair of hoop earrings so I thought this would be the perfect pair to start with.
But now on to the more fun items, the ones that were actually under the Christmas Tree. The first Tiffany gift I opened this year were the bone china paper cups that I received from my in-laws. I tried sharing a link but couldn’t find them on the website at the moment. Who doesn’t love being served a drink in their beautifully branded paper cups while shopping? Well now you can drink up in your own home with the bone china version.
My parents were kind enough to gift me two things from Tiffany this year. First the 2018 Day Planner. This is my bible. For the last 4 years I have depended on this planner to get me to my meetings and appointments on time and on the right day. Now that I have a baby, it’s even more imperative that I stay organized. I like the 5X7 version as it fits perfectly in my purse and is easy to carry! Speaking of being organized, I am always trying to find ways to make sure our house is as de-cluttered as possible. So when I saw the Color Block Vide Poche Set I knew I had to have them. I’ve put them on the counter near our refrigerator which is where a bunch of “junk” usually piles up. So far it seems to help, fingers crossed it lasts.
Last but not least, the gifts from my husband who COMPLETELY SHOCKED AND SURPRISED ME this holiday season. There was a large gift wrapped with my name on it and I made the joke I hope that isn’t a vacuum cleaner. Boy was I wrong, inside that BIG box was what dreams are made of for someone like me. It was the the Tiffany X Globetrotter. Photos do not do this piece of luggage justice. It is absolutely stunning. It’s no surprise that every little detail was well thought and had a great amount of craftsmanship put into it. I haven’t used this yet and I think I will reserve it for trips that don’t involve an airplane because I am too worried it will be destroyed if checked for a flight.
Lastly, my husband bought me the large size of the new Tiffany perfume. I really like the scent of this perfume and have been wearing it on a daily basis.
So there you have it, all the Tiffany blue boxes I opened this Christmas. I feel very thankful and by know means think Christmas is only about gifts but thought I would share these special ones with you.
While I enjoy receiving those beautifully wrapped gifts, I also LOVE being able to gift them to others.
I gifted two of my colleagues one of the newly released ornaments. They saw them in person in Boston and mentioned how much they loved the Return to Tiffany heart shaped ones so I couldn’t resist but order them.
Miss Madison of course had to receive at least one Tiffany box for her first Christmas. We gifted her with the teddy bear which you can see she is quite delighted with. We also splurged and bought the baby blanket which is so soft. I wish the adult version wasn’t as expensive because I would TOTALLY buy it for myself.
My husband already had playing cards from Tiffany & Co. but they were starting to be quite bent and not ideal to use so I bought a new set and once again had his initials monogrammed on them.
Lastly, I couldn’t leave out our black lab Bailey so I bought her one of the new dog bowls.
Many of you have shared on Instagram what you received for Christmas, but if you haven’t let me know be sure to share in the comments section.
Now onto Valentine’s Day which happens to be my birthday!
