Received from Ivy Robinson: Custom-designed earrings made from vintage Chanel beads by Kristin Morris. "I rarely buy jewelry for myself, but when I do, I try to make sure that it is something very unique while being timeless. This jewelry fits that description perfectly." ($100, kristinmorris.com)
Really wants: A FatMax Mobile Work Station and a Black & Decker mouse sander. "I am currently without a workshop/studio, and all my tools are in a box while a miter saw and a table saw sit in my living room." (Work station, $79.99; sander, $39.97, The Home Depot, homedepot.com)
Gave to: Mark Hibbs "From personal experience, I know good BBQ sauce is hard to find. So I figured I would give him some of the best sauce I have had. And it's produced locally."
