5 gift ideas for daughters of all ages

Daughters have a tendency to grow into young women all too soon. While they will always be your little girl, dolls and cuddly toys quickly come off the gift wish list to be replaced by clothes, shoes, jewellery and cosmetics.

Is your little girl starting to grow up? If she is and you are stuck for ideas about what to buy her for Christmas this year then you might like to consider these ideas:

  1. Charm bracelet – a great choice for of all ages. For younger girls the sterling silver charm bracelet from the Little Wishes collection will make the perfect gift. The beautiful bracelet will hold any of the lovely charms like the Silver Ballet Shoes, Silver Ice Cream, Silver Bumblebee and Silver Rabbit.

The Lovelinks range is diverse and offers something special for everyone and Biba’s sophisticated range are perfect for a more mature recipient. Charm bracelets also give you the opportunity to continue buying charms as gifts on special occasions in the future.

  1. An experience – sometimes the best thing you could buy your daughter is a memory. Taking her to a West End show or a concert is a fun and thoughtful way to celebrate over the holidays. Other experiences that make the perfect girl include spa breaks, beauty parlour vouchers or a fine dining meal with the family. A day or night on the town is an especially great choice for larger families where one-on-one time can be hard to come by.
  1. Pendant necklace – Pendants look gorgeous on girls of all ages and often come in sets with matching earrings. These sets are perfect for Christmas and can be worn both separately and as a pair. The Heart Locket pendant from Little Wishes is perfect for younger girls while your adolescent daughter will be thrilled to receive simple yet elegant necklaces from Swarovski or Michael Kors. As your daughter ages, pear pendants or diamonds will be welcomed additions to their jewellery boxes.
  1. Art – canvasses, photographs or paintings are a special way to say happy holidays this season. This is true for girls of all ages because the range of artwork available is extensive. For a younger girl, consider creating canvass out of their favourite photograph or a snap of the family. As daughters enter their early twenties and begin to venture out on their own, there is not always a budget for decorating. Many brands currently sell affordable prints or graphic art that can lighten up their flat.
  1. Watch. A watch is a wonderful gift for any daughter and there are so many to choose from that you are sure to find one to suit at a price you can afford. The Baby-G ladies watch is a chunky watch that the active girl will love and Ice-Watch has a collection of fun, colourful and inexpensive watches. There are also sophisticated, elegant watches at modest prices from manufacturers like Citizen, Michael Kors, Vivian Westwood and Chanel.

Jewellery, experiences and artwork are perfect Christmas gifts for your daughter or daughters irrespective of their ages. Little Wishes has a great collection that is just right for younger girls, while for older girls there are a range of brands and styles available that will be sure to make your special little girl happy.

Jewelry to Represent Ancient Traditions

I am a sucker for astrology, my sign Scorpio fits me near perfectly so being that is the case I always look for various ways to wear my sign. I plan to get a tattoo in all honesty some day with my astrological sign but that’s a bit more time consuming than getting jewelry that displays my sign proudly!  Astrology Jewelry is a great way for me to show off my sign and my daughter loves jewelry like this as well so it makes the perfect gift for holidays and birthdays!

Whether you are into astrological signs or other areas in science, there is a jewelry store that mixes fashionable jewelry with science and makes beautiful selections for every woman’s fashion desires. The Sacred Geometry Jewelry  for example has the flower of life pendants which are just gorgeous. The flower of life is great for healing and connecting one with their higher self. I would love a friendly reminder to be healthier and be more in tune with my higher self. The flower pendant is gorgeous too.  I am still personally stuck on Scorpio jewelery no matter what other gorgeous selections I find.

So when I was looking for jewelry as a gift idea and happened upon David Weitzman – Jewelry artist work I was amazed! He is a cosmic jewelry artist and the work he does is simply amazing. I love for starters that there are gold and silver options to just about every option of his sacred artistic  jewelry collection. The next best thing about David Weitzman’s jewelry is that he covers a wide range of sacred beliefs and tradition in art form, jewelry.  If you are looking for jewelry that has meaning behind it then I would certainly say to check out David Weitzman’s work!

Smart Mom Jewelry- Why Didn’t I Think of That

teetherbling Smart Mom Jewelry is just that – SMART, every person I  showed my pendant to said, “Why didn’t I think of that” and I have to agree!

I recently received the Smart Mom donut shaped pendant for my teething Baby K, and have worn it over a week now. Baby K goes crazy when he sees it and enjoys chewing on it during library story time and pediatrician visits.  Baby K can be found swinging the pendant around on his own while playing on the floor too, because he seems to think it’s his jewelry, not Mama’s.

This pendant is great because it doesn’t look like a “teether” at all. When I went to my WIC certification appointment last Friday all the women there thought the pendant was a glass necklace and I could tell they were giving me funny looks across the way as I allowed Baby K to chew on my necklace. I let them look at me oddly for a while before I finally pulled it off my neck and said, “Now isn’t this adorable? It’s SmartMomJewelry.com and they have created a teether that is a necklace. Not only do they have these pendants but they have keychains and bangles too.

The women were amazed, they had to have a closer look and could not believe how stylish and practical this pendant was. They of course responded with, “Now that’s a product I should have thought of.” This pendant has been a mind saver. Baby K is teething every other week, it seems his teeth are all coming in at once. He gets two at a time, first his bottom two front, next his top two fangs and now his two middle front top teeth are coming in. He just loves chewing on this pendant and I love that he has this pendant to chew on because it has saved my fingers and chin from bite marks ;-)

Smart Mom Jewelry creates Mom and baby friendly products that will keep you looking stylish but also allow you to remain practical. I highly recommend their products and I am sure Baby K would say the same to your children – if he could speak ;-)
