I love the mama necklace shown here for $59...it says "hand holder. dream soother. love giver. mama." And you can change it out to say something other than "mama" as long as it's six characters or less.

The dewdrops necklace $77 is shown with two names -- which could be the names of your kids -- or you can have her engrave your favorite words or a saying instead. The base design is there, you make it your own. How cute would it be to get your child's name and also the first word she spoke?

Her designs would make a great push present (hint, hint to my hubs) or gift for any occasion.
