If you're looking for a last minute gift idea, or maybe something to spend some hard-earned pennies on, I think you're pretty much onto a winner with jewellery brand Tales From The Earth.
They say a picture says a thousand words, but I reckon jewellery says a few more. Ahem. Well, these secret message bangles certainly do as hidden beneath their shiny exterior, you'll find a message inscribed that only a select few will ever get to see.
They remind me a little of those kind of positive affirmations that you see mentioned in motivational ideas posts - you can keep one of your secret desires close to you at all times with a lovely reminder every time you look at your wrist.
Tales Of The Earth kindly let me choose a bangle with a message that spoke most to me - I went for 'an abundance of happiness' as it's something I wish for not only myself, but for everyone around me (cheesy, but true!). It's nice to have a bit of positivity attached to your wrist at all times - it serves as a good reminder in those grumpy b**ch moments!
There are also options for travel enthusiasts or dreamers and I think these would make a beautiful gift for a special someone that you want to send a message to.
The bangles themselves are rhodium plated and feel like excellent quality - it's thicker than I thought it would be and I'm loving stacking mine up with a selection of silver bracelets for a chunky look.
Secret Message bangles cost £45 each and can be found on the Tales From The Earth website.
What sort of message would you like to see inside your bangle?
