A Boyfriend’s (Husband’s) Guide To Twilight Presents
Alright you significant others! Listen up! Thanksgiving is almost here which mean Black friday and Christmas are just around the corner! I’m one of those people who thinks it is blasphemy to show any type of Christmas pride before thanksgiving – but in this case, i will let it slide – you guys need all of the help and pre-planning you can get – am I right? 😀
SO! Welcome to Project Twilight Christmas Present Boot Camp!
For the next few pages and a half i will beat into your heads some great Twilight christmas gift ideas!
(Disclaimer : If your significant other hates the present you gave them IBC is not held responsible – you should make sure you know what type of taste they have! :p PAY ATTENTION! )
The disclaimer brings us to some simple pointers and tips 🙂
- As far as not knowing what they like, a great thing to do is bring them to the mall to walk around – maybe grab dinner or something – as you walk through the shops, see what catches their eye! – They may even drop some hints!
- For the people who never drop hints, pay attention to what they are wearing as far as jewelry and clothes.
- I know this MAY sound painful, but watch the Twilight movies with them – yes, that’s right, WATCH THEM. DO NOT bring your kindle or e reader and read a star-wars book while the movie is going, DO NOT text your buddies from college, and DO NOT take an Eclipse long bathroom break!
- While watching the movies, see if the point certain things out like “I LOVE her bracelet” or “I want that top!” – If the conversation only results in “SSSHHHH” or “I want her boyfriend” …… RETREAT! RETREAT! – Just kidding – sit it out and you probably get good brownie points 🙂 – but if it is necessary, you should bring up certain things like ” her Birthday dress is really pretty, don’t you think so”
ON TO THE CHRISTMAS LIST!
Gentlemen! Etsy will be your best friend! -Etsy is a website where artisans go and sell things that they had handcrafted themselves!
just about any jewelry your other half wants could be found there 🙂 – but make sure to check the list before going to etsy – you may want to get the real deal and the list MAY have the info on where to get it!
- Bella’s Turquoise Bracelet
There is no report (to my knowledge) of the designer who made the original bracelet – the truth is, this specific design has been around for such a long time and is actually a very common design shared between jewelers.
If you want to go as authentic as possible with sterling silver and real turquoise, i suggest Rhett Lewis – of course you can find him on etsy – he usually puts these bracelets out – if he does not have any on etsy when you check, create an account and message him, he may make you one to order – The bracelet is usually sold for $74.00 and is made to fit so make sure to get the exact measurement of the wrist it will be worn on – Rhett Lewis also resizes for free, so if you find a cuff and it is not the correct size, you can still purchase the bracelet and in area where it says message to seller, make sure you type that you would like it resized and give the size. The price is worth it – the quality is amazing. I own a Rhett Lewis Bella Cuff, and it is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. Here is the picture of it, with the link to Rhett Lewis’s Shop. Remember, if you don’t see the cuff, you can always send a message!!!!
if you are planning on going a little more costume jewelry, you can alway buy the Costume replica put out by NECA
Please note that this cuff is cheaper in price – and for good reason – it is very clunky, not the correct size, and everything is obviously not real. Although this is true, it is still a good second 🙂
- Bella’s Moonstone Ring
Like the Cuff, there is no known jeweler who made the original.
There are also many other designs for the moonstone ring on etsy – this link was the closet to the design I could find – it is also the one that i have – it is beautiful.
Again, if you want something a little cheaper, you can go for the costume jewelry
if there are non left in this link, good luck! you may be better off buying the real thing – the prop replica ring sells for pretty much the same amount now – it used to be $20. – again, it is large and clunky – it also only comes in a size 8. It has a pink hue when Bella’s is white.
- Bella’s St Jude and Prayer Bracelet
It is an unsaid Twilight rule – these two must go together! – its like PB&J, Butter on toast, Master Chief and Cortana……………
I prefer the NECA St Jude Bracelet for one
You can visit etsy to find the prayer bracelet, or kill two birds with one stone and buy this
The reason why I give you this one is because it was featured by the Twilight Costume Collections – Which will be on the list a little further down 🙂
They also have the best looking prayer bracelet I have seen. The only thing i do not care for is the St Jude Bracelet – it is hard to tell whether or not it is actually black, or brown because of the color change in the movie – i prefer black because that’s what it looks like in the movie, and their bracelet is a brown color. Either way, they both serve the purpose, and very well
If you plan on buying all three – Cuff, Ring and St Jude Bracelet, the costume jewelry NECA puts out has a joint collection set
just don’t forget that the prayer bracelet is not included!
- Bella’s Graduation Bracelet
Surprisingly enough, the NECA Replica of this one it spot on and worth it 🙂
IMPORTANT TIP TO MAKE MASSIVE AMOUNT OF BROWNIE POINTS!!!!!
If you buy the NECA bracelet, take the heart off of the bracelet – you heard me – it is secure with a clasp so it will be easy to take off. present the bracelet (without the heart) have them put the bracelet on, and then pull the heart out of your pocket like a surprise. Clip the heart onto the bracelet. (If you want to know why, watch Eclipse) I’m serious….it will blow them away.
If you would like to go a little bit more fancy with Swarovsky crystal and sterling silver, you can – very beautiful (the chain is a little bit thicker than the one in the movie – but don’t let that stop you if you want to do fancy – they will love it either way!)
- Bella’s Engagement Ring
Ok don’t freak out – just because you get them this ring doesn’t mean they think you are asking them to mary you.
NECA again puts out a great replica – again – you cannot customize the ring – i believe this one to be a size 8 as well
These are Stephenie Meyer designed and approved! – there are a couple of different qualities you can choose from including real diamonds – it is a little bit different from the one in the movie – but if the Author of the books approved it, why not!? – they also have gold as well ( I have the gold one – beautiful!)
Now Onto some outfits!
Like I had mentioned before, The Twilight costume collection is an awesome place to start. The owner of this “collection” is a designer who replicate the clothes. He started his own website selling them.
Cosplaysky is amazing because they make the clothes to fit the specific person – custom designing 🙂 – you gotta get the correct measurements – here is the chart – make sure to get all the measurememnts because you MUST fill them out in the empty box on the website when you go to purchase
you will see some of the cosplayky stufft pop up with some of the clothes I will feature on this list
First off, most important clothing item if you will :
- Bella’s Headband
- Bella’s Birthday Dress
The Hot Topic one is the best one you will find. Unfortunately hot topic does not sell them any more. you can find them on ebay
- Bella’s Green hooded jacket (New Moon)
Again, Best is the hot topic jacket!
- BB Dakota Jacket
As long as you type in “Bella’s BB Dakota jacket, these are very easy to find
- Bella’s Rubbish Jacket
