Christmas List 2009 ~ 13-20 year olds

I just couldn’t not choose this one as the winner. If I didn’t already own what I consider to be one of the most beautiful necklaces on the planet, I’d want this one. And it’s significantly less moolah, which makes it perfect for anyone, especially kids in this age range.

It comes with two charms included, personalized with any names you choose. You can also choose the type of lantern on each charms as well.

I love total customization. It rocks my world.

Another idea I really dig is TOMS.

If you haven’t heard of this company, you need to hear about it.

Allow me to share.

From the TOMS website:

“TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we’re all about.”

And for gift giving, they make it ridiculously easy. Even if you don’t know the right size or style, you can email or send a gift card to that special someone.

They also have teeny tiny TOMS with uber cool names like “Remarque”. I think Vivi would look darling in a shoe called “Remarque”.

Actually, I think might instead be a “Silver Mary Jane” girl. But I’m just guessin’.

Great idea Sarah, I’d heard of TOMS before but hadn’t actually checked out their website. It was fun. And inspiring.

So there you have it, the winner and the runner up for the 13-20 year old crowd. Thanks Cat for submitting the winning idea! Email me at to collect your loot :)
