cuff links for JR

We swap names in my family for Christmas, and this year my little sister April had my husband JR. John is a bit hard to shop for but April found these vintage US Forest Service cuff links which were the perfect gift. First off, John really likes cuff links. And secondly, in college John wanted to be a forest ranger and had his own dreams of joining the Forest Service. My favorite part is how she packaged them, on their own cuffs made of folded paper.. she even drew little stitches around the cuffs. (I think attention to detail might run in our family.)

Gifts that have that much meaning to your life are the best! And I agree with what everyone else has posted, the paper cuffs are too cute;)

Cute! A while back I found some cuff links that were made out of NY subway tokens. He loved them.

Wow, she really took time and care to choose this gift for her brother in law. That's lovely. And the presentation just makes it even more perfect.
