The older my children get the harder it is to find age appropriate holiday gifts for them.  Between the outrageously expensive requests I receive from my oldest daughter (yea right, like an iPad for my 11 year old is ever gonna happen) and the knowledge that I must step up my game and cough up a lot more money with 3 tweens to buy for this Christmas I don’t have a prayer.  Since I can’t really afford to go buy iPads for 3 kids the sensible mom in me takes over and I go on the hunt for awesome, unique, and most importantly “Tween Trio Approved” gifts for Christmas.
  
One of the very first companies I came across in my quest for tween/teen appropriate gifts was Road Rage Jewelry.  Now just hearing the name invokes images of crazy drivers and major traffic headaches, but this kind of Road Rage is a good kind and something you definitely want to know about…especially if you have tweens or teens.  Road Rage Jewelry was born out of creator and designer Jeanne Koesters’ early morning road rage experience, as Jeanne drove along she noticed different road signs and the colors and shapes and decided that Road Rage didn’t have to be a bad thing!  

Here’s a little more about Road Rage Jewelry from their website:

“She (Jeanne) began by locating a manufacturer (ISO certified) and commenced production of actual street signs. She truly believed in pursuing the "green aspect" of production, and when studying her particular target market and their concerns, she was determined to "keep it real."  Road Rage Jewelry® is manufactured with recycled lightweight aluminum; the graphics are all ROHS (non-lead paint) compliant; and is proudly “made in the U.S.A.”

Next came the design idea of using a simple ball chain necklace with a street name attached ("Malfunction Junction" "University Drive" etc.)  The ball and chain gave it a rugged but simple look that played into the feel of an actual roadway.  Wanting people to be able to express their individuality, she made the signs versatile so that other funny signs in varying shape, sizes and colors, could be attached to the bottom of the street sign.  That's when Road Rage Jewelry® "took off."  What you see are actual street and road signs that can be found throughout the United States that have been scaled down to various sizes from ½” to 3.”
"Malfunction Junction" with a "Dead End" and "Do Not Enter" sign, could sum up anyone's day.
Road Rage Jewelry® starting with its initial series, will be adding hundreds of various street names and individual signs to appeal to people from all backgrounds, and from over the world. Come watch us grow!
Additionally, Road Rage Jewelry®, has designated its “Drive Safely” and “Baghdad” series to “Pay it Forward.”  A portion of the proceeds from the sales of these signs will be divided among charities identified through CharityNavigator.com and other worthy fundraisers.”

We received a necklace (from the aptly titled Street Series) as well as 3 different charms (LOL, stop sign, and SUP).  As soon as I opened the package and saw the necklace and charms I knew that Road Rage Jewelry was going to be a huge hit with the tween/teen crowd.  My kids are obsessed with jewelry and my oldest daughter couldn’t wait to show it off to all of her friends.  Knowing that I found a company that she likes takes some of the pressure to find “cool gifts mom…gah” (kid you not those are here words) off of this mommy. 
I love that Road Rage Jewelry is made in the USA, that it is very affordable, so much fun for tweens and teens, and that they give back…it makes you feel great to buy from a company who does their part to help others!  So if you have a persnickety tween or teen or your holiday gift list this year make sure you check out Road Rage Jewelry!

***Clarification!!!  It was brought to my attention that this part of the Extra Entry options is a bit confusing so I want to clear up any doubt.  For Tweeting (which you can do daily, up to 3 times) you get 3 extra entries each time you Tweet.  So if you Tweet tomorrow only once that is 3 extra entries…or if you Tweet tomorrow all three times that is 9 extra entries.  

For Facebook you can only share once daily, but that one time is worth 3 extra entries as well.  I hope I made it a little easier to understand…if you still have questions please feel free to email me @ a_proffitt79(at)yahoo(dot)com!***
