fair ivy: The Gift That Keeps On Giving {Handmade Strawberry Earrings Giveaway}

fair ivy{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, jayedee!}

Back in January I had the pleasure of being introduced to fair ivy surprise package subscriptions, one of the most fun and innovative websites that I've had the chance to review in quite a while. I mean, who wouldn't be excited about having a beautifully-wrapped package filled with an array of adorable and unique goodies inside arrive right at their front door?

gift wrappingI love the concept of fair ivy as a whole and the way that they make it so incredibly easy, not to mention fun, to give someone a gift that keeps on giving. Simply choose your category (fair ivy for women, fun ivy for girls and teens, fur ivy for pets and the people who love them, and the new fred ivy for men) and your subscription length and you're set to sit back and wait to hear how excited your lucky recipient is when they receive their first package.

With everything from jewelry to apparel to beauty products and more waiting inside each individually wrapped box, I loved the thrill I received from opening up each one and finding something that made me smile waiting inside. I could definitely get used to doing that each month!

gift ideasHowever, if you're not sure about the idea or wondering if fair ivy would be the right choice for your next gift, I think it's great that they now offer a one-month subscription (of either the regular or mini size packages) so that you can essentially test the notion out before committing to a longer time period (although take it from me: you'll want to).

As well as the addition of the single package purchase, how cool is it that there is now a surprise package subscription for men with the new fred ivy?

gifts for menI never know what to get my husband for his birthday or Father's Day, so this would be a load off of my mind! Designed for "men who like silly, awesome, manly gifts. They are appropriate for anyone who doesn't take life too seriously," these are a great way to incorporate some fun and lighthearted gift-giving for the man in your life... and give him a fun laugh!

Are you ready for a taste of the adorable and unique things that can be found at fair ivy? One of the especially cute items that I received for review was a pair of handmade stud earrings that have been the perfect way to add just a touch of pizazz to any outfit...

earring giveaway...and now, thanks to the generosity of fair ivy, someone else will get to see just how sweet and fun these are as well, because...

One lucky person will win a pair of Handmade Stud Strawberry Earrings from fair ivy!
