The Perfect Gift for a New Mom

Can you recall a time when you received the perfect gift?

A mother always remembers the day their child was born. The special feeling a mother has bringing a new life into this world is priceless.

Special days like this are shared between family and friends. I, for one, have many best friends that have given birth to their first bundle of joy within the last year. When I go to visit them at the hospital and meet that new precious baby, I am blown away by all the gifts that a new mother receives. Many of these gifts are so special, beautiful and unique that it made me feel like my bouquet of sunflowers (my typical go-to gift for new mothers) was overshadowed and maybe even a little ignored.

Then one day it hit me – *poof!* The perfect gift for any new mom should be personal and sentimental. For the next hospital visit, I tried to be a little more prepared: I ditched the sunflowers, called my friend’s mom to find out her newborn’s name, and ordered a custom bracelet for the new mother. When I delivered the custom bangle, it had the newborn’s name stamped right on it. I didn’t wrap it, I just greeted my friend at the hospital and chatted for a bit, then slipped the hand-stamped bracelet on her wrist. Her reaction was more than I could have ever expected. Her eyes got wide and she started to tear up. It was so sweet and I’m glad that my personalized bracelet was one that would mean so much to her.

Personalized Bracelets and Bangles for Her

From that moment forward, I realized I had cracked the code for the perfect gift for new mothers. Now for every baby shower, every push present and visit to a hospital, I bring along with me a customized piece of jewelry with the newborn child’s name on it – and they all LOVE IT! These ladies never take this jewelry off. Every time I see them, they smile and show me that they are still wearing that bangle, necklace, or ring with their little baby’s name stamped onto it.

Plus, don’t forget the new moms who have brought a child into their family’s home by adoption! Oftentimes, these moms can get overlooked but never should be! Having a child, whether by birth or adoption, is still a life changing milestone in any woman’s life. I have a friend who just did adopt; they had a very fun adoption party and that sweet Mom loved every minute that people took the time to share in their new bundle of joy! A hand stamped personalized double ring would have truly been the most perfect gift for her!

Picking a Unique Gift for a New Mom

I have talked about this a few times with some of my girlfriends, and many of them have difficulty with trying to find the perfect gift for a new mother. It can be such a grueling process and at some point, we have all been in a position where we are searching for that treasured gift for a new mom. When in this situation, people tend to think about gifts they have gotten themselves, or those we have seen others receive. And most gifts are typically items that we still cherish today. Yes, beautiful and fragrant flowers are much appreciated, but they have become the standard present for most any occasion. Celebrating someone you care about as she enters into a new stage of her life, deserves something special. The perfect gift for a new mom is one that forever links the mother to the new baby for all of time! What better way to do that than with a personalized item that can become a family heirloom in the future!

So with that in mind, I have put together a few ideas to help all those out there who are searching for that perfect present for any new mother. Hopefully some of these ideas will help you give the gift that is forever cherished to that new mother in your life.

Perfect Gifts for New Mothers

The easiest and most elegant gifts to give that new mother in your life is a personalized Mother’s Stamped Tag Charm Necklace. Typically, I tend to get the newborn’s name stamped into the charm, but lately I have been adding a birthstone to the charm for a little extra sparkle. For my really close friends I might even add a second charm to the necklace with the birth year on it, like you can see in the Established Family Charm Necklaces.

My next go-to gift for new moms is a personalized bangle bracelet with the newborn’s name stamped on it. Some of my favorites are from the Family Bracelet Collection because I am able to not only get the newborn’s name stamped on the bracelet, but I can also add the mother’s name and even the birth year stamped on the inside of the bracelet. I find that this bracelet costs about just as much as a bouquet of nice flowers – except the bracelet lasts forever!

Finally, for those very special friends, I tend to splurge a little more and get them a double ring with their name and their baby’s name stamped. It’s called the Mother Daughter Ring and it is always a big hit. The hardest part about giving this gift is having to find out my friends ring size without spoiling the surprise. To pull this off, I typically pull in the help of the baby’s father. Most husbands know their wife’s ring size, and if they are not married yet, it is always a secret nudge to get the boyfriend to find out the ring size just in case he might want to make it official – *wink wink*

What better way to commemorate the special time of becoming a new mom than to be given an exquisite bracelet, ring or charm that is personalized with their precious baby’s name? Especially with more and more unique names being given every year, a personalized present may be hard to find but with the Nelle and Lizzy, you’ll be able to give an item that is perfectly tailor-made!

Why Mother’s Stackable Rings Make the Perfect Gift

Amazing. Loving. Strong. Happy. Selfless. Graceful.

These are some of the words that describe mothers around the world. Mothers can often be underappreciated because all the focus is on the children most of the time, which is just how life works. Make sure that your mother or wife never forgets how appreciative and thankful you are for her selfless heart and caregiving attitude.

There are a few days of the year that give mothers a chance to be pampered and have a day entirely focused on them, but I think most of us can agree that they should have more than that. A little surprise every once in awhile would make her heart skip a beat! Imagine that you (as the husband) walk into your house after a long day and give your wife a present while she is hard at work cooking dinner for your family. I can almost assure you that it would completely make her day, and maybe even her week! Most women love unplanned surprises. Whether it’s a cute handwritten note that she finds in her purse during the day, or a gorgeous bracelet that you come home with one day for no reason at all. “No reason” gifts are some of the best kind and will give all the husbands out there some major brownie points!

Personalized Jewelry for Her

Of course jewelry is always a wonderful gift for any woman, but you know what would make that gift even sweeter? Adding some personalization to it. Most women lead with their emotions and make stronger connections with physical items when there is a sentimental value.

For me personally, infinity signs have sort of become “thing” between my sisters and I. We all wanted to get matching tattoos and after months of brainstorming, we finally decided to get an infinity symbol that say ‘sisters’ intertwined into it and since then, those symbols have become our signature symbol. Last Christmas, our mother got us all matching infinity necklaces and they honestly aren’t anything special but the meaning behind it means so much to all of us. I don’t live in the same state as my family (actually about 18 hours away) so whenever I wear my infinity necklace, it’s like I am reminded more of my connection with my sisters. Sentimental pieces like this with a special meaning behind them are the pieces that are cherished forever. With Nelle and Lizzy, you have the opportunity to design the perfect piece of jewelry for your mother or wife. Some of our most popular pieces are from our Mother’s Stackable Rings collection.

Mother’s Stackable Rings in Gold or Silver

All of our mother’s stackable rings are available in gold or silver and there are a ton of design options! Our gold rings are made of 14K gold vermeil, the silver ones are sterling silver and both can include Swarovski crystals.

As a starting point to pick out jewelry for yourself or a spouse, it’s important to think about the metal color. Gold typically looks better on warm or tan skin tones and silver usually flatters cool skin tones with pink undertones. If you can’t figure out which metal “fits” you, you can find a more thorough explanation here. These rules definitely don’t have to be followed, it’s just an interesting take on how the colors look on different skin tones. For example, I am considered to have a cool skin tone, which means silver should look best on me but I wear a mix of both metals – gold and silver – and I love how both look on me. It’s just a matter of opinion and what you think looks best on you and your skin tone!

Mother’s Stackable Rings are Customizable

After you’ve picked gold or silver for your mother’s stackable rings, get your creative juices flowing and design a personalized stackable ring set! You can make your stack as little or tall as you would like.

As an example, for a mother with one child, instead of getting a single ring with her child’s initial, try adding another one with their birthstone gem, along with a symbol like a heart or cross. And voila, you have an adorable and meaningful collection of mother’s stackable rings!

For a mother with more than one kiddo in her life, their stack may be a bit bigger! The mother’s stackable rings below would be perfect for a mom of four. This showcases the initials and birthstones of each one of her babies.

Mother's Stackable Rings

To the ladies out there, you don’t have to wait for your man to buy you a mother’s stackable ring set either. You are a strong mom who deserves to pamper herself from time to time, so go ahead and personalize and order one for yourself! Why not, right? And If you’re the kind of woman who doesn’t like buying gifts for yourself, you can always throw hints to your hubby – tag him in one of our Instagram pictures that you love or mention him on Facebook to point him to the direction of our Nelle and Lizzy page. Add a little wink emoji with your message and we think he will get the hint.

You also aren’t limited in only getting a mother’s stackable ring set to represent your kids; you can get one for your mother with you and your siblings initials and birthstones, or add a few symbols onto the stack as well! A few other great ideas are for:

  • The loss of a loved one. You can get one for yourself if your mother passes and build your stack around what reminds you of her. Maybe her initial, birthstone and a cross.
  • For your mother. The same idea goes for mom’s around the world as it does for wives. Surprises, small gifts, and “no reason” presents are perfect year-round.
  • A push present. Is a friend or sister of yours having a baby soon? A mother’s stackable ring set would be the perfect push present for a new mom!
  • A Mother/Daughter stack. Get a matching stack for you and your daughter, or build two different stacks to symbolize the love you have for each other.

Let your mother or wife know how appreciative of her you are with a unique and perfectly tailored-for-her piece of jewelry. Nelle and Lizzy is passionate about creating personalized, hand-stamped jewelry and would love to make something special for you or a family member. We hope and wish that a piece from us will be passed down for generations and become an heirloom piece for you and your family! Our Mother’s Stackable Ring Collection is the perfect place to look if you’d like to add a special piece to your family history and show that special woman in your life how much they mean to you.

Finding the Perfect Gift for Your Wife

This one is a post for the husband’s out there. Buying your wife the perfect gift is sometimes challenging but we’ve come up with a few points to help you get started on the venture!

Being a wife myself, I think it’s safe to say I have a pretty good sense of what wives want when it comes to receiving presents. All we want is to be pampered and loved and gifted with sentimental items every once in a while. What we don’t want is a pair of socks with chihuahuas on them for our anniversary (my husband and I have two chihuahuas so it isn’t as random as it sounds), but nonetheless. No offense guys, but sometimes you need a little help in the gifting department. Buying us a sports t-shirt for our birthday isn’t going to get you brownie points, but you know what is? Jewelry. Jewelry is the perfect gift for your wife.

The Perfect Gifts Of Love

In all the hustle and bustle of our lives, sometimes we begin to feel overwhelmed, as though the world may swallow us. Whether it’s the frantic search of back to school season, the anxious excitement of beginning a new job, or maybe even buying our first house, it is hard to see all the things that make life so wonderful. The love notes left on the breakfast table, or that new pair of earrings that we absolutely adore, this can all be lost if we don’t hold onto them. Even little things showcase how much we are loved, like asking if our seat belt is buckled, or making sure we made it home safely. These things, though small, are expressions of how deeply we care for one another. They help us remember that these are the happiest days of our lives, and that not only should we appreciate what we have, but that we all deserve to be happy.

What Is The Perfect Gift For Your Wife?

Anyone can buy a ring from a department store, and anyone can pick up a bouquet from the grocer. When deciding on the perfect, unique gift for a wife, you want something personal. Something that that tells her that she means the world to you, and that she is your everything. That special someone deserves a special gift after all. Personalized name rings are very popular items, as they are literally a one-of-a-kind item that would be a unique gift for your wife.

There are obvious occasions set aside for gift giving and those are for anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, birthdays and maybe even Mother’s Day! Let’s be honest, women almost expect jewelry on these occasions but do you know what’s one of the best gifts to give your wife? A “just because I love you” gift! A gift that you can surprise her with on a random day of the week, for absolutely no reason, will speak volumes to her! Imagine her waking up on a normal Tuesday morning, only expecting another average day, but on her nightstand is a little brown box and a note from her husband! She will be belated at how thoughtful you are and how absolutely amazing her husband is.

The Perfect Gift For Your Wife?

Loving Our Moms

It’s the hardest job in the world to raise a family, and always has been. The late nights spent cooing to our loved ones softly, and the hectic search for the perfect outfit for class, sometimes it also feels like the most thankless job in the world. But then there are those moments, when we look into their eyes after a fit of laughter, and it is as if the whole world is lit up. We realize then, that it is all worth it. We all deserve to be happy, and that also means that we all deserve to be spoiled now and again.

Should I Get Her Gold Or Silver Jewelry?

You might be a little unsure of what to buy. While one could outright ask plainly, where is the romance in that? What you need to do is ask yourself a few questions: Gold does not tarnish, but silver does, will they want to follow with the upkeep of their jewelry? What kind of colors do they have in their wardrobe. Silver goes well with dark colors like navy and black, but if they prefer bright, vibrant colors that pop, then gold might be more her style. At the very least, you can try to observe what jewelry she normally wears, and you might find your answer. If they are looking to try something different, then the opposite is your best bet. If they prefer classy and original, then go with their usual taste. Whatever you do, don’t panic! No matter what you buy, she will love the fact that it came from the heart, regardless of what you choose.

What’s Her Ring Size?

Do you have any idea what her ring size is? Don’t worry, as there are numerous resources available to you, such as this handy video below.

Nelle and Lizzy is passionate about making unique gifts for wives and spouses. Whether you want to surprise her with a “just because” present on any give day or if you want to gift her with a personalized ring for her birthday, we would be happy to create the perfect gift for your wife. If you’re having some trouble coming up with ideas, please take a look at our Mother’s Jewelry and Anniversary Jewelry collections.


Your Life

Whether a quiet night in, or a lovely dinner for two at your favorite restaurant, it is precious moments and experiences that make the sweetness of our lives compound. Life is beautiful, terrible, calm, frightening, and amazing all at the same time. And it is also precious. So never waste it on the false promise of tomorrow, spend time with the ones you love today to appreciate all the goodness of our collective pasts.

After that we tried for #2 and finally got pregnant in 2010. Sadly we lost the baby shortly thereafter. We struggled through the loss and went for baby #3. We found out we were pregnant with a baby boy in Spring of 2011! It broke our hearts when our son was delivered 2 months early as a still born. Jesus was with us through it all, and we were blessed with another baby boy in Nov. 2013. Now we are expecting a son in April and have faith that we will welcome him right on time.” #faith #hope #loss #blessings #family #prayersanswered
