Gifts for Mom – use Birthstone colors

Are you going to make a gift for your mom this year? Or maybe your customer is asking for birthstone colors for the earrings she wants for her mother 🙂

And it’s simple to select the birthstone colors you need to use for your “gift for mom”. Here’s an example of earring drops (or a delicate pendant) made with three stones – sapphire blue for September birthdays, amethyst purple for February, and aqua blue for March. If those are your kids’ birth months, you’re good to go!

In this triple-jewel setting it’s easy to customize the colors for your earrings. These are delicate little drops, about 1″ long – which makes them super comfy for earrings. There are two-jewel settings too of course, and I’ll be featuring those soon. And if you have more kids? There are designs we can work on, easy peasy 🙂

As always, if you don’t see the exact “triple” settings, or rhinestones in the birthstone colors you need, just ask. If I haven’t got them already I’ll get them, or help you find them. It’ll be fun and easy to make your mom a customized birthstone gift!

Amethyst glass jewel set – DIY jewelry

I love this amethyst glass jewel set. It’s a pretty color (amethyst purple, the color of love, but you knew that). It’s feminine and classy and delicate without being so dainty it disappears. And it’s easy to use!

Add a jump ring and chain and your necklace is ready. Add earwires and you’re good to go. If, just as an example, you needed a jewelry set for your Mom? You order this, I send it out next day, you get it in 3 days (okay, knock wood) and you add the findings. Voila: a great gift for Mom.

But also for you, of course. And did I mention it’s an affordable glass jewel set? Yes. Easy, pretty, affordable.

This is a good trend 🙂

Mommy and Me activewear – a GREAT gift for Mom

I ran across this shop totally by accident – and I LOVE it. Think about it – not only is activeweare useful, but your daughter will love wearing her Mommy-and-me clothes.

This just strikes me as a terrific idea on so many levels. It’s a great gift for Mom – from her daughter (okay, an older daughter) – or from grandma – or from her Significant Other. (It doesn’t cost a lot, it’s going to fit – leggings are pretty forgiving if they’re anywhere near the right size…) – and it’s something she can share with Her Kid. These are all important concepts!

I found them at Malin Boutique on Etsy. It’s a new(ish) shop that definitely needs to be explored and encouraged.

Cute activewear – and stuff you can share with your daughter. This is a win!

P.S. Plus – ACTIVEwear. Which encourages Mom and Daughter to get active, to move, to share. To do physically active stuff. Double win!

P.P.S Okay, this is even better! The lovely ladies in the pic above have a Mommy and Daughter workout video over on YouTube – check it out, it is inspiring!

Vintage beach house basket – a gift for Mom

Wouldn’t this be a perfect gift for your mom? It’s vintage, it’s got great style, and it would actually do something, as in providing storage.

Or it could be, you know, a gift for your living room, where you could use it to keep the kids’ toys, or the dog’s stuff – or yours – in some kind of accessible order. While looking good.

It doesn’t actually have to be a “beach house” basket, it just looks to me like it could be casually sitting on the porch at Martha’s Vineyard, or even better, on Little Deer Key.

I found this treasure at Amid The Ruins, a quite wonderful vintage boutique at Etsy. TW, the shop owner/curator, has some fabulous finds there – and beautifully clear, informative pics, providing the visual information you need when you’re going to buy something online.

Go there. You’ll thank me.

PS And hey, a gift for Mom. Easy. Done 🙂
