We get it. And we’ve got the gift for you.
While I’ve never been one to carry crystals or magical stones (hey, unless they look pretty), these Emily McDowell fantasy stone pins targeting everyday adult problems have managed to totally charm my inner skeptic.
Like the Comparison Stone “which neutralizes inner critics” and “heals the toxic impulse to compare oneself to internet strangers.” Or Persistethyst, which “absorbs exhaustion from maintaining a smile despite simmering rage.”
Not that any woman living in 2018 America has any familiarity with that.
There really is one for everyone, from Parentite (hey, anything to help me “pay a sixth game of Go Fish” to Romancerine for a girlfriend who finally decided to try Bumble. Yeah, she’ll need some extra good juju with that one.
Whether or not the stones have otherworldly powers, these gifts might be able to brighten someone’s dreary day or give them a good belly laugh. Which may be all the magic they need.
Mine for your favorite gem from the full collection of Emily McDowell fantasy stones on her website.
