It's All In the Wrist

I have some excellent news! After 2.5 years of being unemployed and then underemployed, my darling Mr. finally has a full time job! I'm so proud to see this finally happen for him - he's been on countless interviews and worked hard to stay as positive as possible. 

Ever since there was a possibility of this job becoming reality, I've been dreaming of ways to celebrate this momentous occasion. While shopping at Nordstrom a few months ago, we found some beautiful cuff links from David Donahue, and I knew these would be the perfect gift when the Mr. finally got that job.

So now the possibility is reality, and with this new position, the Mr. will be more client facing and therefore needs to dress more professionally. So, this gift will be extra special, not to mention practical. I've narrowed it down to a few pairs - tell me, what do you think?

I already know I'm going to have a hard time deciding which pair to purchase, but I'm leaning toward the mother of pearl or the red paisley pair. For me, there is nothing sexier than a well dressed man sporting an equally beautiful pair of cuff links, so regardless of which ones I ultimately pick, I can't wait to surprise him with this gift and especially can't wait to see him wearing them! Cheers friends! 


  1. YAY!! congratulations to him!!! must celebrate! :)

  2. Congrats to him! Personally I like the blue ones the best.

  3. I gave the hubs a pair for his wedding gift. It makes me smile every time he wears them!

  4. Oh, congratulations to him! It is so hard going on interviews and putting yourself out there over and over and over. I am so happy he finally found something great!

  5. Congrats to him!
    I like the blue ones, too, but I'm sure he'll be happy with whichever pair you select. I'm a sucker for cuff links, too :)

    It was nice meeting you last night at the Boston Blogger event. I want that pink skirt you were wearing!

  6. Hearty congrats! Nothing screams big time like cuff links (and nice shoes in my opinion, make sure he gets a polish!). I am leaning towards the middle pair.....
