The Gift I Keep Giving

gifts that keep on givingEarler this year, back in January, I joined the La Bella Gifts and More family and became a gift consultant. I fell in love with their amazing variety of products, as well as their mission, and since I could sign up for only $1 AND make commission on every gift I bought myself, it was a no-brainer. It’s a decision that’s kept on giving joy to me and others ever since I made it.

One of the things I love about La Bella is that they keep expanding their product base – almost daily. There’s truly something for everyone. One of their newest products is scented wax roses with surprise jewelry (you can choose a ring, earrings, necklace, or bracelet). The roses come in several different colors, and you can even pick your scent (from unscented, fresh cut roses, chocolate-dipped, lilac, and think pink love spell).

Mother’s Day was coming up, so I just had to order some of my own. In this post, I want to share some pictures and the story of my roses, the necklace, and the creative way I ended up making several gifts out of one.

I got the peach and black ones. scented waxI could’ve sworn I ordered the peach and blue ones, but that could’ve totally been my mistake (I might’ve selected the wrong thing). The order form very clearly said “peach and black.” I was a little disappointed at first, but that disappointment faded once the roses actually got here. They’re pretty awesome!

I was so excited about getting the roses out of the box! I ordered the fresh roses scent, which is really, really nice. In fact, I was so excited, I forgot all about the jewelry at first. black cat namesThen, I opened the bag and found the lovely necklace.

My black cat, by the way, loved the box they came in, so I took a picture of him too.

peach rosesI gave the peach roses to my mom for Mother’s Day, because I wasn’t sure she’d care for the black ones. She put them in a vase with some marbles and pebbles. I was a little worried half a dozen roses wouldn’t be enough, but I was pleasantly surprise. They look fantastic!

black rosesAfter Mother’s Day was over, I got the bright idea to decorate the black roses with glitter glue, and I liked the way they turned out so much I sent one to my five-year-old’s teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week. She loved it!

And I sent the necklace (which isn’t really my style, although it’s absolutely beautiful) in to her today. I thought it would be a nice surprise for her. I can’t wait to hear what she thinks about it!

I spent a little over $40 (with shipping costs), and I ended up with four pretty amazing gifts (including one for myself). That’s what I call a gift that keeps giving – and I love the options it provides to be as creative in your gift giving as you want to be. Pretty much all of La Bella’s gifts offer that, and it’s one of the things I love most about the company.

Next down the product pipeline is going to be jewelry in candles, and I can’t wait!
