Hi Everyone! We were supposed to have dinner with my oldest son, daughter-in-law, and a “precious to our family” couple last night. One got sick, so we bagged dinner, and I got a night in! I caught up on some gift wrapping and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and I ate so much chocolate that I made myself sick. One of our friends sent us a box of chocolates, and dark chocolate is my downfall. Speaking of candy, I am talking about “arm (well, neck and finger too) candy” today. I am so “BEARY” happy to be working with TOUS, the iconic bear jewelry brand!
How The Iconic Teddy Bear Came To Be
TOUS Jewelry was started in 1920 as a small watch repair workshop by the Tous family. In 1965 Salvador Tous and Rosa Oriol married and took over the family business. In 1970, Rosa opened a jewelry atelier behind the family business. The iconic BEAR came to be in 1985 when Rosa was inspired by a teddy bear in a shop window that brought back her childhood memories. She decided to make it in gold. The Bear is the representation of TOUS and represents a fundamental value for the brand, which is tenderness. It is to remind us of sweet memories of childhood. Isn’t that a cool story? I always wondered why and where the bear originated.
Gifting With Tous
As famous as TOUS is for it’s Bear, they have so much more in jewelry and accessories that offer unique gifts to give at every price point. I loved looking at all of the beautiful pieces on the website. I think the Hold Collection is so special because it comes in earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. You can wear these pieces as they are or add charms to them. I like the Horoscope charm collection. My favorite earring in this collection is this mixed metal pair. They will go with everything! I think it’s cool how innovative TOUS is with a Titanium Collection. My favorite piece in the collection is this delicate earring. I love the mix of the gemstones. Another favorite of the brand is the Iconic Mesh Collection. These are lightweight pieces that are so easy to wear and to gift. My favorite is this effortless steel and rose vermeil sliver icon bracelet. It is great for anyone!
So Much More Than Jewelry Too
Now, let’s talk about what I am wearing and gifting. I love delicate jewelry (this necklace is my favorite) because it goes with everything and doesn’t have to be changed out. I just like simple pieces and love this ring (similar to mine)! I got these silver earrings (shown and a special price) for my sister-in-law (hope she doesn’t read this post!) because she can add or subtract the bear and they can be worn day or night. This sweet bracelet is perfect for my little Evie, and I know she will love it! I wish I needed to get a baby gift, because how precious is this pacifier holder? I had no idea that TOUS had handbags and luggage, and I think this bag is going under the tree for my mom. TOUS has so many great gifting ideas for women, men, and children.
I still have not addressed a single Christmas card! Either I will get them done this week or they will be very late. I have talked to so many people that are feeling stressed and not ready for Christmas. Someone said to me yesterday, that if it’s not all done, Christmas will be here again next year. I thought that was good and I am going with it! I hope you all have a wonderful day and be blessed! xx
