GIANTmicrobes Red Light District

Great Gift Idea for the Tweeps

So what do you get for that uber-cool, social media whiz who has everything?

How about their twitter name or favorite hashtag in a wearable format? Necklace, pin, keychain, or tie clip- all are available in silver or other finishes at Survival of the Hippest. Creation and shipping of your custom piece takes about 2 weeks. You can even bling them up with various gem stones.

What more could a girl want? My silver @PHLane pin shipped yesterday!
