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!
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.
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!
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Fourteen years ago a friend of mine and I started a fundraiser here in Fort Worth which has grown to one of the highlights of our family’s year every holiday season ~ Cookies and Castles. During the first weekend in November, hundreds of people purchase tickets to attend gingerbread decorating events. Kids young and old use over 75 types of candy to create one of a kind pieces to display at their home during the holiday. Last year I made this house ~ who knew it would be a prop for this year’s photoshoot! Cookies & Castles is sponsored by the Fort Worth Alumnae Chapter of Delta Delta Delta and supports Cook Children’s Hematology Oncology Center. If you are in our area and want to come ~ we would love to have you and your family attend. You can click here to make reservations!
