I love to shop. My hubby is not so much a fan of it, but I make sure not to go overboard or shop outside of our budget.
I’m not one to follow trends or someone who tries to “keep up with the Joneses,” so to speak. I tend to like things that are unique, whimsical and someone you won’t find in everyone’s home.
One of the many wonderful reasons why I enjoy being a blogger is because it affords me the opportunity to learn about new products, brands, services and websites. If I wasn’t a blogger I might miss out on some hidden gems. Such is the case with the company, Giving Tree Gallery.
The Giving Tree Gallery is a family-owned contemporary gift shop gallery with an extensive jewelry collection from award-winning designers and a wide range of home decor items. The Giving Tree Gallery has store locations in Sarasota, FL on St. Armands Circle and the French Quarter in New Orleans, LA. They also sells their products on their website.
I was contacted by the Giving Tree Gallery and asked if there was an item on their site I would be interested in reviewing. Ha! That is like setting a child lose in a candy store and tell them they can only pick out one piece of candy. Easier said than done!
First I went through their marvelous home decor section. They have wall art, sculptures, figurines, and the most beautiful snow globes I have ever seen, just to name a few.
The Giving Tree Gallery carries one of THE COOLEST clocks I have ever seen. It’s called QLOCKTWO. This very unique and innovative clock tells time using words, not numbers.
The Giving Tree Gallery sells these clocks in different sizes and colors (face plates).
The time displays in words vertically and horizontally.
I have never seen these before. I would love to have one in my home.
I had mentioned that the Giving Tree Gallery carries beautiful snow globes. In fact, they have several designs to choose from, including snow globe sets.
Here are a few examples from their website.
Stunning. Simply stunning.
We have a collection of Christmas snow globes. I wouldn’t mind collecting ones for other seasons. The autumn one with the dog’s is my favorite.
Here are just a few more examples of the unique and beautiful home decor items you can find at The Giving Tree Gallery.
Fabulous home decor is not the only thing you will find at the Giving Tree Gallery. The brand also sells jewelry including rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and more. These are artisan jewelry, which means you most likely won’t find them in stores like Walmart or Target.
Here are a few examples.
I finally selected one of the Giving Tree Gallery’s meditation rings.
I don’t necessarily meditate, but it’s something I am working on this year. I’m hoping that it helps me to de-stress and unwind each day. I tend to be stressed out and exhausted all the time. I’m always too tense. For that reason, learning to meditate and to utilize it daily in some manner is a goal of mine for the year.
I also liked the meditation rings because they have a piece on them that rotates. Think of it as an adult version of a “fidget spinner.” Whenever I am feeling stressed out, or I think I need something to do with my hands, I find myself spinning the ring I was sent to review.
The ring arrived beautifully packaged in a nice tin that I can reuse to house the ring in, or I can find another purpose for it. Currently I keep the ring I was sent to review in it as well as two other rings for safe keeping.
The ring I received to review is their Devotion Meditation Spinner Ring. It’s available in sizes 5 – 10. I have a chubby finger, so I got the size 10. It’s actually a wee bit lose on me, so I put a ringer sizer thing on it.
Beautiful intricate oval and marquise spinning channel set band with clear Cubic Zirconium. Stack them any way you like, these versatile fun Meditation Rings can be worn in many different ways.
The above photo is a close up view of the ring (more detailed). Here is how the ring really looks.
Please disregard my wrinkly old lady hands.
This ring is a lot nicer in person than it appears on the website. As you can see, there is a lot of sparkle to this ring. It’s also a nice size (I placed it next to a regular pair of scissors to give you an idea of the size).
This quickly became my favorite ring because not only does it give me some sparkle for my hand (my wedding ring is white gold and bland looking), but it also gives me something to play with when I’m at work or out and about.
The center part of the ring spins around. As per the booklet inside the tin the ring came in, spinning the ring can help give you a sense of calmness. As odd as it sounds, it does! I may not be totally blissful, but it does help me to de-stress a bit. I guess it’s because when you focus on spinning the ring and the sensation of spinning it, it refocuses your attention and takes you away from things that might be stressing you out.
The Giving Tree Gallery has many meditation rings to choose from in a variety of shapes, sizes and color combinations.
