When you have clinical depression, like I have and still do at times, you have problems with the chemical signalling pathways in the brain. You aren't producing enough of those 'feel-good' neurotransmitters, which leaves you feeling inexplicably down. So, imagine my delight when my boyfriend surprised me with a necklace featuring the chemical structure of Dopamine, one of those feel-good neurotransmitters.

I now always have that little bit of extra feel good when I need it - I seriously almost cried when I opened it, and I am not usually the mushy type. I love the simple silver design and I am going to wear it everyday - so expect to see it a lot. I think he bought it from the I Love Science Store, but they seem to be out of stock, but they do have super adorable Dopamine Earrings, which are on my wishlist for sure.

I think it may be the nicest gift I have ever received, it is both super personal and appeals to my mega nerdy, science-loving side. Go on admit it, I know you're jealous - your envy sustains me :)

Dopamine Necklace - I Love Science Store.

What has been the best gift you have ever received?
