3. Cullen’s Sterling Silver Collection
The Love Knot
A simple, elegant way of wearing your love close to her heart. Three hammered sterling silver circles are intertwined to create Cullen’s Original “Love Knot,” a perfect reminder of how important your loved one is to you.
The Cairn Necklace
“Cairns – Of Celtic origin. A manmade pile of stones, often in a conical form. Indicates a path, milestone or directional marker. Carry or wear this cairn as a symbol of the path you are meant to follow. It is yours.”

4. Sarah’s REAL Sand Dollar Necklaces
What began as an accidental wine spill, led to one of our most popular jewelry collections – Sarah’s Sand Dollars. Each sand dollar is hand-dyed and dipped in layers of protective resin, resulting in unique color combinations and beautiful natural patterns. Show her she’s “one in a million” with one of these one-of-a-kind necklaces.
And if jewelry isn’t her thing? Maybe a bottle of wine, a pair of new, etched wine glasses, and a box of delicious chocolates will be right up her alley.
5. Mary’s Etched Stemless Wine Glasses
A clean and classy stemless look. Choose two of the same or mix & match between the 3 styles: lighthouse, lobster, or “Maine.”
* Pairs well with a local bottle of wine 😉🍷
6. Haven’s Chocolates
Instead of that hidden chocolate stash that’s made up of a half eaten bag of M&M’s and Hershey Kiss wrappers – step it up to a GOURMET level: Haven’s Chocolates. Whether she likes Salted Dark Chocolate Caramels, decadent Assorted Truffles, or maybe the whole Maine Selection, this is a box of chocolates that she might not want to share!
