Let me be frank, I’m not a materialistic person. I’m far from high maintenance and I hate holidays because I dislike receiving gifts. However, I’m all for sentiment and if a product makes me cry (in a good way), then I’m all about that. So let me tell you a story and why jewelry can make a great gift for mom!
Once upon a time (IE: a little over 2 years ago), I was almost 7 months pregnant and went in for a scheduled check-up. Before I even set foot in the room I was rushed to the hospital because I was having a stroke (WHAT?!). I had extreme pre-eclampsia, and a dozen doctors and nurses raced around my room injecting things as I came in and out of consciousness. Within hours I had lost part of my eyesight and the resident on duty was sitting by my bed, unwilling to leave the room. Fast forward a few hours my kidneys were shutting down and was forced to have an emergency C-section. My journey into motherhood was a rocky one.
For almost three months we sat in the NICU day-in and day-out as a tiny 2-pound baby strapped to the nines in cords and monitors thicker than her leg and watched her get poked and prodded with needles and tests. At home, we sat in her empty space-themed nursery and just cried. Our nurses kept telling us “you can do this, you’re stronger than you know”. It’s not something you forget.
Thankfully this story ends well. After almost three months we took our little preemie home at a whopping 5 pounds and placed her in her crib beneath a beautiful piece of art that read “we love you to the moon and back”.
At this point, you’re probably wondering why this matters and what it has to do with giving jewelry as a gift.
Why Jewelry as a gift for mom?
Recently I came across the brand Bijou Mommy, and their gorgeous matching mommy and daughter matching jewelry.
More importantly, their amazing matching bracelets. They come in 24k gold or rose gold coated (give me all the rose gold!) and have 4 inscription options to choose from.
But what really caught my attention was the inscription: “I Love You to The Moon and Back | You Are Stronger Than You Think”
Could it be any more perfect for me and my daughter?
They also have:
- A Million Kisses | One Day At a Time
- Oh The Places You’ll Go | The Best is Yet to Come
- Spread Your Wings | Be Strong and Courageous
Needless to say, I’m obsessed! The bracelets are gorgeous! Clean, simple, elegant. If the quotes “I Love You to The Moon and Back” and “You Are Stronger Than You Think” hadn’t been so perfectly chosen to match me and my daughter’s history, the inscription choice would have been so difficult!
4 Reasons Why Bijou Mommy-and-Me Matching Bracelets are the Best Gift for Mom
If you’re on the lookout for the perfect gift, let me give you 4 reasons why these bracelets from Bijou Mommy are the perfect choice as a gift for mom for any holiday (hello Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day, or birthdays!), or a gift to yourself (I actually did buy it for myself)!
1 | These bracelets are heirloom. They aren’t styled to be trendy or short term – they are styled for timeless elegance. They may only fit your daughter up to age 4, but your daughter can (and will!) pass it on to her own daughter someday!
2 | Elegance. As I already mentioned, these bracelets are styled for timeless elegance, which means not only do they stay beautiful far beyond current trends, they go with everything. Choose from gold or rose gold, and they will match all of your jewelry!
3 | It’s sentimental. Sure the quotes touch my heart for some unique reasons. But even if they didn’t, beautiful jewelry that matches with my daughter and come with lovely empowering inscriptions? I would cry if I received such a meaningful gift!
4 | These bracelets are memorable. You will never forget receiving these bracelets I promise you that. Even long after they don’t fit your child, it will certainly be one of the items you will pack away as a memory keepsake!
