Small, thoughtful gifts

My parents shipped a few small gifts that didn’t arrive in time for Christmas. Today was our first opportunity to pick up the package from the post office. When we opened it, I found two small gifts for me:

I squealed at the TARDIS notebook, and teared up a bit when I learned that the earrings were made in the same part of Guatemala where I volunteered a couple times in college. Both gifts are meaningful to me and support the artisans who made them — along with being a nice surprise that made me think of my parents today.
