    @MrsPocahontas:  I’m kind of ‘meh’ about those, probably because I’ve bought and been disappointed by cheap jewelry on Ebay before.

     

    For my shower the prizes were gift sets (it was around the holidays) there was a coffee one, a makeup one, etc.

    I have to put together prizes for my SIL’s shower soon, NO IDEA what I’m going to do for that!

    I’m a pretty huge fan of winning wine at bridal showers, or artisan jewlery (you know the people who sell at street fairs? Or Etsy?).

    I would have a hard time getting excited over those, I think.

    Sorry, but they are totally not my aesthetic.  I am not into pandora at all. 

    Is the charm in the pic the charm you got?  I think I would think it a little weird to get two people kissing, if I wouldn’t kiss that person on the mouth.

    But you know your crowd.  If they would like it then go to town.

    I personally like things that are very generic, like wine, body shop gift sets etc.

    @MrsPocahontas:  Yeah I know.  I just think it’s a charm that is best suited to be given by someone you would kiss on the mouth.

    I guess as a guest I don’t think I would put on my charm bracelet something that didn’t relate to me.  A charm bracelet is meant to be a collection of charms about you.  I don’t see how “this is my friend/cousin/neighbour kissing her FI” is something I would put on a bracelet.

    @MrsPocahontas:  Ehh I don’t like it but that is a personal preferance type thing. I wouldn’t wear it, so I’d probably donate it or something. The charm, even though its supposed to be you and your FI, wouldn’t really mean anything to me personally. I’d prefer like a heart charm or something like that.
