Holiday Gift Guide Day 1 - Charm Factory Review and Giveaway

As I was looking over my Christmas list last month, I realized there was a large # of people that I have absolutely no gift ideas for. What do you get for the person that seems to already have everything? Whether it's my kids, parents, neighbors, or coworkers there always seems to be those that are impossible to shop for.

So this November - all month long - I am having a a MISSION POSSIBLE blog event featuring gift ideas AND GIVEAWAYS for those that are impossible to shop for.

As it is November 1st, and the official start of my blog event, I want to introduce you to a Company whose product is completely customizable for any girl on your shopping list - Charm Factory.

The Charm Factory produces sterling silver charms and charm bracelets.  They have a great selection of pre-made bracelets.  Or if you don't find one you love, they make it easy to design your own.

All you have to do is pick out your favorite bracelet design.  Then choose the charms to fit the girl. 



My daughter would absolutely love these.

I was really excited when I found out that I got to do a review and giveaway of one of the Charm Factory premade bracelets.  I loved the summer fun and wild animals design, but in the end I had to get the bright Joyful Colors Swarovski bracelet.


And I love it!  I was a little bit worried that the bracelet would only be for young girls, but that's not the case at all.  As great as it looked online it is even more beautiful in real life.  The silver bracelet is a great size and the crystal hearts are bright and catch the light.

And best of all, it could be yours!  To give you a start on your Holiday shopping, the Charm Factory is giving away a premade bracelet to one of you!

To Buy It - Since you design the bracelet, you pick the price!  Their premade bracelets retail at 24.99 and charms start around $3.00

To Win It -
You could win a premade bracelet of your choice!

I like the cuff bracelet, http://www.charmfactory.com/25-to-3mm-flex-cuff-bracelet---6mm-ball.htm, and the fleur de lis charm, http://www.charmfactory.com/crystal-fleur-de-lis-charm.htm, since I'm from Louisiana. Geaux Saints! Lol. Thanks for this chance to win.

    51. I was entering more than one of your giveaways at one time and put these comments under the wrong giveaway like a dingbat. Lol. SO sorry to make a mess of your pretty page. All fixed now though. Again, wanted to tell you why so many comments were deleted and tell you also that I'm sorry. I'm trying to multi task here and failing.
