The best tumblers featuring Disney characters to get this summer

Tumblers with a straw are a good investment because they can be used over and over again during the summer to have iced drinks in. And the latest tumblers from Disney look very beautiful and are elaborate in design too, so now there is more than one reason to get one.

Finding somewhere to keep your jewelry looks like a tedious experience because there is always this concern at the back of your head that your precious jewels must never lose their shine and sparkle. That is where a good jewelry box comes to your aid and having one around is quite a different kind of fashionable experience in itself.

The handmade jewelry box boasts of interiors composed of faux suede and exteriors of cotton + grosgrain; it’s minimalist and really practical in nature.

There are three options here: one for rings, another for bracelets and another one for necklaces; also, the glass cloche comes in two colors – the brass finish can really spectacularly add some glamour to your home.

Antique Gold Jewelry Boxes at Pottery Barn
This jewelry box makes your jewelry look like it belongs in a really old museum or in a jewelry shop because it is see-through and has a liner covered in ivory linen; also, there is an ornate filigree design on the trims of the box – it’s great for proudly displaying your jewelry.
