Lisa Leonard Online Logo

If you’ve been around leShrimp for awhile, then you may remember the Lisa Leonard feature from way back when. When Lisa approached me about doing another giveaway, I was just thrilled – especially right in time for the holiday season! This shop is going to keep you browsing for ages…


Lisa Leonard Designs is a shop chock full of hand-stamped jewelry with a fresh, unique vibe. It’s not the same stuff that you see all over Etsy (and all over my tutorials!), and it would make a perfect, lasting memory as a gift this holiday season. 


Lisa is a wonderful lady with a ton of talent and a huge heart for others, and she’s also completely beautiful!!!



Don’t put all your eggs in one basket! While it’d be fabulous if you could all win this giveaway, only one of you will. That said, you should probably all go ahead and plan out what you’re going to buy with or without the certificate (but fingers crossed, of course!). Be sure to get your orders in by December 16 to ensure arrival by Christmas!

  1. The most meaningful gift that I have received was a quilt that my Aunt made for my husband and I for a wedding present. There is a special note sewn to the underside commemorating our special day!

  2. The most meaningful gift I have ever received was the gift of having children. So many people cannot, and I truly do appreciate the blessing.

  3. ms(dot)verymarried(at)gmail(dot)com

    i think my most meaningful gift was the year that my mom saved up and bought us the “expensive” cereals – we had just moved after her divorce and this was a really big deal!

  4. The most meaningful gift I’ve ever received is probably a drawing my friend did of a picture of the two of us and our two roommates

  5. The most meaningful gift I ever got was a ring my mom and grandmother had made for me when I turned 16. Unfortunately, it was lost in a move years ago and my Meme is gone so it can’t be replaced by her. It breaks my heart.

  6. Sorry about removing the above post. I made a booboo I needed to fix. Lol.

  7. LOVE the sweetheart tree necklace and can’t take my eyes off of the little bird earrings too!

    Most meaningful gift? Truthfully, and totally corny (but true) my hubby’s non stop support of all MY creative endeavors (and then maybe my wedding ring, ha!)

  8. My most meaningful gift was a Lady and the Tramp watch my husband got for me. I have special memories of that movie and was surprised when he found a limited edition watch that came in a wooden box.

  9. Gosh, lot of things i adore, but this one is the faviest Heart Necklace

    Much Thankies for the chance dear
    Good luck for me and everyone :)

  10. The most meaningful gift I have ever received was the very last quilt that my great-grandmother handpieced. She made dozens (probably 50-60?) quilts, all by hand. I was her second-to-youngest great-grandchild, and I got my quilt the Christmas before she passed away. Even more meaningful, though, is the love of quilting that she has passed on to me. I wish she was still here to see one of her own carrying on the tradition!

    design for the future: I am interested in flowers, especially roses. Maybe a bracelet with little roses.

    Most meaningful gift: yellow Schwinn bike when I was 9 years old

  12. A very meaningful gift was a restored Barrister bookcase. It meant so much to me because of the time the giver put into it JUST. FOR. ME. …. and because he KNEW I woudl love it…..which I did. ;-) joleehamlin [at] comcast [dot] net

  15. The most meaningful gift given to me was a beautiful hand made baby afghan from my Grandma – given to me to hold on to until I had a little girl. She wasn’t around anymore when my baby girl arrived, so it was very special to have from her.

  16. Last, but certainly not least: perhaps the most meaningful gift I ever received (with the exception of blood transfusions from several dear friends when I had to have open heart surgery) was a first edition copy of Alan Paton’s Cry the Beloved Country from 1948. My husband, boyfriend at the time, remembered that it was my favorite book, and he stalked every used bookstore (this was pre-ebay and amazon) for months until he found me a copy. I have no idea what he paid for it, but he was so proud and happy, and I was so touched at his thoughtfulness. It still has a place of honor in our home. Okay, yes, I’m clearly a dork, but still, it was really sweet of him!

  17. I feel like I would change my mind every time I looked at her shop because they are all so fabulous! But I love the Dream a Little Bigger Bracelet. And the Who Do you Love Necklace-I think I love them equally. [email protected]

  18. The most meaningful gift I have ever received is a beautiful set of scriptures. Through the years they remain the one gift I use everyday.

  19. The most meaningful gift I’ve ever received was the birth of my daughter, one day before Valentine’s Day <3 <3

  23. the most meaninful gift I ever got was when my husband was in the hospital dying (he made it through by the grace of God) & sent his sister out to buy me a bottle of perfume because he didn’t want me to be without a Christmas gift. sammiejanL40 at aol dot com

  24. oh my gosh, you’re right – how to pick just one? I narrowed it down to 3 – the friendship necklace, the from up here necklace and the kisses and hugs necklace sammiejanL40 at aol dot com

  25. So one year my boyfriend asked me what I wanted for christmas, so being funny I said a baby. (Cause secretly I did want one) He laughed it off and then for christmas I opened a box and it was a baby doll. It made me laugh so hard! ambrerose at(aol) dot(com)

  26. I love photography so I would choose the through my lens necklace. That is so amazingly beautiful! ambrerose at(aol) dot(com)

  27. before my best friend passed away in 2007, she made me an etched glass photo frame for my birthday with our favorite picture inside of it. It is by far one of the most meaningful gifts I’ve gotten.

  34. The most meaningful gift I ever received was from my son when he was in 1st or 2nd grade.He gave me a little pair of post earrings with a green stone in them that he bought from the school store. He was so excited and said that they were gold and diamonds! So sweet, I still wear them quite often, he’s almost 18 years old now!!

  37. the most meaningful gift i ever received was just a few days ago…i just opened a new etsy shop and have been beyond overwhelmed with orders on top of trying to keep a neat and organized house and spend quality time with my young girls and get food on the table etc etc etc! my husband must have sensed i was at the breaking point because he came home on wednesday with a dozen roses and told me he’d put the kids to bed so i could unwind a little before sewing all night!! he knew just what would be meaningful to me at that moment and i was (still am!) so grateful!

  38. The most meaningful gift I have ever received was a handmade agate ring from a hospice patient of mine. He died shortly after Christmas.

  47. The most meaningful gift that I received was for my birthday…an engagement ring! After about 8 hours of a “scavenger hunt” and about 3 counties across Texas, he got down on one knee. We’ve now been married 13 years and I couldn’t be happier!

  50. I love the bracelets and the ring. Everything is lovely but I’d probably wear those more than a necklace.

  56. ALSO…

    My most meaningful gift probably would have been my last birthday when my boyfriend arranged a surprise trip for me, and got me the time off work and everything. He made such an effort and it was an amazing weekend where I got absolutely spoiled.

    I guess when I lump the whole experience into one thing, that was such a nice gift!

  57. These are so pretty. I like a bunch, but I’m gonna go with the Vintage Frames Necklace.

    I think a cute idea might be to do little bitty stamped charms of things people might be interested in. Mine would be a bike, typewriter, a cat, a book, etc.

  58. So many great things to choose from! Love the grow roots, sprout wings, you’re the cream in my coffee and the you are loved necklaces.

  59. AMY C. ♥ The most meaningful gift I ever received was after my first son was stillborn… it was a personalized necklace with his name, birthdate, and birthstone. It was really comforting to have in the time after losing him.
