What the heck do I do with those?!?!

Posted by   + Show Post

 My brother and SIL gave me earrings for Christmas, the problem is I don't even have pierced ears so I couldn't wear these earrings if I wanted to. They did not give me a gift receipt so I can't return them, so what do I do with them? I would like to try and sell them but I don't want to offend them, although it is a little offensive that they couldn't put more thought into my gift and its not like they didn't know, we are around them all the time. So would it be okay to sell them or what do ya'll think?

Ahh, well in that case I would just drop them in the jewelry box and forget about them.

Pierce your ears?

 Even if I did pierce my ears I couldn't wear these earrings because I am allergic to most metals, I can only wear gold or platinum.

 why not get your ears pierced?

 I have had my ears pierced once, in high school and I couldn't keep them open, and I couldn't wear cheap jewelry because I am allergic to most metals, anything that has any amount of nickel will give me a rash or if put in my ears (which I tried in high school) make my ears turn red and swell...no thanks.

You wont. Knowbody has to know you sold them. If anybody asks say "oh i just LOVE those earrings but my ears reacted when i wore em so i am keeping them for my funerial ensemble, when i'm dead my ears wont react and i will look so gorgeous laid out in my coffin"
They probably wont ask again

Its obvious they put just about zero thought into this gift. Sell em. And don't feel guilty.

 That is what DH said. I just don't want to come off as rude.

My Mom gave my girls ear rings and they do not have pierced ears. So I turned one into a necklace pendant and the other into a zipper on her favorite jacket. Looks cute when they wear them together.

You could also turn them into an awesome hair barrett. I had a small broach break in back..I used an alligator clip and some hot glue for a fancy hair clip.
