Hey sassy mama!
Having a babe in arms doesn’t mean you have to stop wearing jewelry. Whether you want to show the world that you are a proud parent or look stylish with baby-safe accessories, we have the bling for you. Read on for eight unique, personal gifts for the parent-to-be in your life (or to give to yourself).
Give a gift that is truly unique by ordering a custom jewelry piece from ClaireTopalDesigns on Etsy. This Seattle artist will take a photograph of your child or a picture of the child’s work of art and seal the masterpiece into a metal pendant with clear resin. Show off two kid creations with a pair of earrings, or choose a pendant or cuff links.
Babies love to grab and chew on anything they can reach — including jewelry. Smart Mom Jewelry has the solution to grabby little hands and drooly gums with its Teething Bling line. These pendants and beads are made of safe silicone with no BPA, phthalates, PVCs, lead or latex. The necklaces are strung on a cord with a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature, so mom can look stylish while keeping baby happy.
Once a guy becomes a dad, he’s a different kind of babe magnet. Let Dad rock the family runway with a Babe Magnet tie from Smart Mom Jewelry! These “ties that surprise” look like regular business wear, but tucked inside is a squeaker and a rattle. Rock on, dads!
Check out the Etsy store FamilyTreeGlass’ birth art and mama jewelry line. The perfect gift for a baby-wearing mama, doula or midwife, this handblown glass pendant symbolizes the art of carrying and wearing a baby. Pendants can be made in a variety of colors, and this shop also offers other jewelry for mamas, such as sculpted pendants to symbolize family, baby feet, water birth and birth belly to name a few.
For parents, life is often divided into before and after — kids, that is! The copperplate on this boho wrap bracelet by the Etsy shop SailorStudio honors this important transition with the inscription “Mama est. [insert the year you became a parent].” It’s a perfect gift for the hip mom or grandmom in your life. The copperplate is hand-shaped, stamped and then strung onto hand-dyed silk ribbons and accented with beads.
These colorful, chunky teething bracelets from the Etsy shop KattyMarket are just plain fun! Crafted from natural wood balls covered in cool crochet, these will delight any baby. This accessory isn’t only for teething; little ones will want to explore the texture of the crochet, and the colors will catch everyone’s eye. Since these are created from renewable resources of wood and cotton, they are both safe and eco-friendly.
LaLabel Creations, on Etsy, makes these beautiful bracelet watches for moms and grandmas. The watch face is linked to four silver discs that are hand-stamped with your children’s names. You can choose from a variety of symbols and quotes as well (and at least you’ll be out the door on time, even if your kiddos are still moving like sweet little snails).
Feather mom’s nest with this symbolic bird’s nest pendant from SleekStyles on Etsy. The nest is constructed of sterling silver wire, and you choose either birthstones or real freshwater pearls to represent your chicks. Nests can be made of gold-plated wire as well and are crafted to display an asymmetrical, slightly messy look — cool but crazy, just like motherhood!
