Powered by Mom shares her Calendar Key Necklace with Swarovski Crystal from Any Old Day Jewelry Review
I must admit that I have a preference for giving and receiving gifts that are personalized. Whether it’s been a handmade card, a macaroni necklace from my daughter or something with my name on it I just love it. I feel it goes to show that the the person who gave it put some thought behind the gift and/or made it with love. Now don’t get me wrong I don’t think that means that other gifts aren’t special as I know all my family and friends give with love and they’re all special but I do have a weakness if you will for those personalized gifts.
So it’s no surprise when I heard about the Calendar Key Necklace from Not Just Any Old Day that I was immediately smitten! I received the brass plated Calendar Key Necklace and had a clear Swarovski Crystal on it to reprsent my birthstone. Yep that’s right I decided that mom (me) would get this one as I’m usually always getting stuff for the family and I actually did not own anything that commemorated my own birthday.
There’s actually a bit of a story behind my birthday as I actually have two birthdays! One is a day in June which all off my official documents has and one is my real birthday. Huh? No I’m not running from law or living in witness protection but I was born in Vietnam when the war was ending.
Long story short my original birth certificate was riddled with mistakes that my parents (mom was Vietnamese, dad was Canadian) were worried it would be problematic when it came time to leave the country. So my mom was advised to get a new birth certificate with a new date as it would be quicker, this resulted in the June birth date. Which by the way is the date I’ve celebrated my birthday since ever and my parents didn’t even tell me that I was actually born in April until I was an adult with a child of my own, just before my mom passed away of cancer. Quite a story isn’t it?
So I thought to myself it’s time I celebrate my “real” birthday since my family hasn’t taken the hint to celebrate both days. What’s wrong with cake and presents twice a year I ask you? LOL. Now I have something with my April birthday and it’s unique with it’s own story to tell. I can think of so many special moments I’d love to get the Calendar Key Necklaces or the “Your Special Day Crown Calendar” or maybe I should get the Two Calendar Keys on one chain and have both birthdays on there! hmmm so many choices, they have bracelets, rings, charms and so much more to make your gift truly unique and personalized.
No matter what you select it will be a wonderful gift to celebrate that special moment! Thank you Not Any Old Day Jewelry for this lovely piece to review, I love it 🙂
