It had a birthstone for each of the kids on it, with charms hanging off of them for each grandkid.
I did the same thing for my mother except it was a necklace. It had the birthstone for each of us and my father. She loved it, probably the most sentimental item she's ever recieved (besides her wedding ring of course).

The best present I ever given my dad was a day that was just for us. We went out that morning and had breakfast at IHOP then played 18 holes of golf at an exclusive golf course. We had supper at a fabulous, new steakhouse. He absolutely loved it and I wouldn't have traded that day for the world.

I think the glass would spill sometime in the shipping process of getting it to you.. I could be wrong though.

MoMark.... I agree with you about gift cards. We do a pollyanna in our family, and we are not allowed to ask for a gift cards.
goingreene.....I got my mother-in-law a facial for her birthday and she loved it.

I just bought some Grey Goose the Friday before last to make some Martinis. No ice? I should try that. Love my stuffed pimento olives. I could use a martini maybe I'll make one now

Hey...not a bad idea! I may mix one up myself now that we're on topic! I keep my Grey Goose in the freezer, so it's already ice cold
