A gift that will touch any mom..

Baby Emi's jewelry for moms and babies is exactly the sort of thing I have in mind when it comes to gifts from the heart. When I was younger I used to wonder why mom's got all teary eyed over badly done artwork or that awful birthstone jewelry they sell at the mall, which for the record I still think is awful but I at least understand now the purpose.

I think every mom wants to hang on to the good moments and have something even if its small to remind them of what it really means to be a mom. For those of you that thought mom jewelry had to be frumpy (or encrusted with thousands of little birthstones) are totally off. Baby Emi's jewelry collection for moms, babies, little girls, and even grandmothers are stunningly gorgeous and the hand stamped jewelry especially has that sort of a modern flair that I really appreciate.

I really wanted something that would stand out.. and scream to the world that that gorgeous little creature running around at my feet screaming like a banshee was indeed mine. Something that would be beautiful now, but something I would want to wear twenty years from now. So I gave my brilliant idea for a necklace to Debbie, the owner and designer over at Baby Emi, and she thought it was a good idea as well. I decided to ask for the demi circle necklace, but instead of just having Connor's name or birth date on the necklace I really wanted to mark my claim as a mom. I ended up requesting a custom sterling silver Demi Circle Infinity Necklace with the most important phrase thus far in my life : Mom * To * Connor. Why? Well because that is the defining moment of my life thus far, being a mom, his mom. I also couldn't resist and ended up adding some amethyst demi stones to it as that's my favorite color and stone. Its really pretty and I feel so proud to wear it. If anyone asks who Connor is I gleefully point at the raging screaming lunatic running manically through whatever place we are at and beam with pride.

Speaking of children running around in public. Have you ever wanted a really stylish way to keep track of your toddler in a crowed store or a public event. I'm not sure about you guys but I haven't quite gotten to the point yet that I'm willing to put a leash or a tracking device on Connor though that day may come, but I've joked on several occasions about putting a bell around his neck so I can find him in the chance that he runs off in that half second that I blink. Well now you can literally put that bell around your toddler's leg (or arm) and keep track of them as well as add a really beautiful accessory to your child's wardrobe. For generations Cambodian mothers have been using jingle ankles on their children, as a way to ward of evil spirits and a really gorgeous way to keep track of that running toddler as they go running down the isles at your local toy store too. I have yet to loose Connor in a store, but there has been many a family event where I've had to track him down between our huge family and my cousin's large house sometimes he ends up in places he shouldn't be and I'm stuck trying to find him in a sea of kids. We did test out the anklet and I could indeed track him all over the house and he had the best time stomping around making it jingle.

I've got a coupon code for 10% off any purchase at Baby Emi. Use the code SDB10 and while your at it tell Debbie I said Hi! We just love her.

I absolutely adore my necklace from Baby Emi and I really want to share this anklet with one of my readers. It comes in a cute little gift bag and is ready to make a little person's day. It is adjustable so it will fit babies to a very large toddler and it also fits my wrist with no problem as well so you could use it as a bracelet even after they outgrow it as an anklet. Sterling Silver and adorned with eleven beautiful little bells which jingle as you walk or move.

Hands down the Sterling Silver Jingle Bells Anklet is my favorite. I've had my eye on it for so long! Love it just as it is, wouldn't want to personalize it -- other than I loved noticing that it comes in sizes from babies on up -- which would let me get one for each one of my daughters at some point -- youngest to oldest!

I love the affirmation bracelet and would use the word "dance" on mine.

I love the idea of jingle anklets on my daughters. I've used squeaky shoes before and they were fantastic but I think the soft tinkling would sound a little less "dog toyish".

Mason and Terri's Mom said...

Easy...well maybe not, I really like the Hand Stamped necklaces! I would have it stamped "blessed with 2"

:-)

(MooreMommy[at]gmail[dot]com)just in case~!

sabb266 said...

I love the Mommy and me sets especially the Sterling Silver Jingle Bell Set and the Bella Bella Bracelet Set adorned with Heart Locket for Mom and the Stamped Heart for baby!

lace said...

I have seen these all over the web and love them. I think it would make my nieces dance a little jig so they can hear the bells jingle. Either that or it will make them run like crazy.

The copper demi rectangle neclaces are my favorite. I'd get my nieces names engraved on them. Or some cute two word saying like Dream, Wish

Uniquely Yours said...

camper223 said...

I would choose for my new grandson due in sept the Pirate's Booty Bracelet. When my son and grandson were little, they are 31 days apart. I watched my grandson when daughter worked I purchased for both boys these belt monitors, that could be worn on child as a belt or sat on a stand. When child got more then a few feet away from parent a alarm sounded also if child fell into water a alarm sounded. I really liked these as the boys got older and wanted to go into the public bathrooms by themselves, as you could hear the whole conversation. I finally stopped using them when they were old enough. I used them daily and they went every where with them on.

Oh I LOVE the Dara Mommy and ME set!

I couldn't get to the page each link to the page - including the one on your site that I clicked on wouldn't go there. But I saw descriptions in the google line list and I think I'd like the silver teardrop necklace and if I customized it it would have my toddler Robert's name on it.
