What do you get the woman who has a closet full of everything?  I’m sure that’s what my husband is asking himself.  And it’s true, I have a lot of stuff.  So it took me a minute to think of something I actually need. Okay, need might be stretching it. But I did figure out what I want.  A pair of pretty stud earrings.

When I eagerly told my Santa’s helper what’s atop my Christmas list, he exclaimed, “That sounds expensive!” Not necessarily. After all, I didn’t say they had to be from Tiffany’s (we’ll work on that for next year).  In the meantime, check out my budget stud earring picks (I hope someone is taking notes):
