Melinda Maria grew up loving to create jewelry and in her 20′s, she turned it into her full-time job by launching her eponymous line of jewelry. Made with semi-precious stones and gold-plated metals, her pieces are worn over and over again by celebrities like Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Emily Blunt, Jessica Alba, Isla Fischer, Zoe Saldana, and more. Find out what Melinda’s obsessing over this month below!
ONE. Delucious Chocolate Chip Cookies — They are the most delicious cookies you will ever taste….sorry Mom! They are such a great gift. Each cookie comes individually wrapped and the packaging makes for an impressive gift.
TWO. Hermes Floral Teapot — This is a decadant piece to impress your guests to high noon tea! Or just to make you smile looking at it while curled up with a good book and serves yourself hot cocoa or tea from this exquisite piece of art. I have mine displayed in my kitchen when I am not using it.
THREE. Melinda Maria Python Pave Cuffs – I love these stacked together – one, two or three!! You can stack them with any other of my bangles for a very rich look; nobody will ever know they you didn’t spend a bazillion on them.
FOUR. Cire Troudon Candles — They are Parisian candlemakers that have been turning out the most delicious and decadant candles for centuries. And I love when the candle is done the jar is so beautiful, that I clean the wax out and use them as tiny jars for short little bouquets of flowers. Put a cluster of them on your table for a centerpiece and it is fabulous.
FIVE. Garrett CheeseCorn & CarmelCrisp Popcorn — Yes I know, it is Oprah’s favorite popcorn shop in the world (located in Chicago)…but it is mine too! This is not your average tin of popcorn you get as a company gift, it is ALWAYS soo fresh and literally melts in your mouth. They have been popping corn since 1949 and believe me, they know what they are doing!
