Confession time. I am a tad, okay very, sentimental when it comes to giving and receiving gifts.
The more personal, the better in my opinion. Yes it’s lovely to get useful little bits and bobs, but it’s the items that you will treasure forever that are the best presents you can receive.
Among the items that I have enjoyed and appreciated the most over the years are the precious, shiny items in my jewellery box. There’s earrings and a matching necklace I received for my 18th birthday, and earrings my mum gave to me from her own collection to wear on my wedding day, to name just a few items.
So now that I have children of my own and we are creating our own memories, one of the most important things to me about celebrating their birthdays and other special occasions is to give them something they can keep forever. Something that they can hold and look at and remember it’s a sign that their mummy and daddy wanted them to know they are so loved.
What better gift then than a beautiful piece of jewellery? That’s why I was so pleased to be sent this gorgeous bracelet from Molly Brown London.
This brand makes beautiful children’s jewellery for a whole range of occasions. There’s something to suit everyone, with lots of different designs and types of jewellery.
Then you can add a personal element to some of the items, put your stamp on your chosen gift, to make it a gift to be treasured forever.
My girls are still quite little, only one and three, but they already have pretty little jewellery boxes in their room for them to fill with shiny, pretty things.
We were sent the personalised ID bracelet with birthstone (£47). It’s inscribed beautifully with my eldest daughter’s name and has her birth stone, an amethyst, on the identity bar next to her name. It is made from sterling silver with an easy-to-use lobster claw clasp.
What makes these perfect for growing kids is the adjustable chain, with three different length options meaning it fits my daughter’s wrist perfectly now at age three and will continue to do so as she grows.
Because the design is simple and timelessly classic, I know that she will continue to love wearing it as she grows older. The double chain just looks so pretty and means this shiny bracelet really catches the light as my daughter admires it on her wrist.
The bracelet came in a beautiful pink gift bag with brown ribbon. Inside the same pretty pink and brown colour theme continued – my daughter was so excited to unwrap it and see what was inside!
Molly Brown London has a fabulous range of jewellery to choose from. There are bangles, absolutely stunning charm bracelets with lovely, bright charms to delight children, earrings and necklaces featuring personalisation options as well.
There are also various options that could be worn by an adult as well, so if you wanted to buy a mother and daughter pair of bracelets for example to mark a christening, birthday or celebrate the birth of a baby then this would be the perfect present.
The prices are reasonable as well, with a range of different options to suit any budget.
This is a gift for a child to treasure throughout their childhood and beyond.
