OK, I know I’m a bit biased on this one, but is this not the cutest piece of jewelry for a mom? It’s a picture of my son, Matt and our dog, Charlie. For me, it’s a precious moment in time, caught forever in a form that I can wear (and show off!). I can’t think of a better Valentine’s gift from Dad or the kids.
And it’s easy. The folks over at Charmings Charms make it so simple to upload a photo and create a one-of-a-kind gift. My now-15-year-old son had one made for me for Christmas, and I just had to spread the word in time for Valentine’s Day. (And Mother’s Day is right around the corner…)
And get this: Sara Gold and Mike Mador, the creators of Charmings Charms, are offering a special $50-off giveaway for the first two Parent Talk Today readers who visit Charmings Charms, create an order and use the code “PTT” at checkout. It’s that easy! Just use the code and $50 will be taken off your order. Hurry: Just the first two people to use the code will get this deal.
Of course, not everyone will get to be the first two people to put in their order. But if you follow Charmings Charms on Facebook, you’ll be the first to hear about all their upcoming discounts and special offers — and you’ll also get to see samples of all their cool new items. I love going there and looking at the photos of the charms that happy customers (like me) have allowed to be shared on the page. So adorable!
Did I mention what an affordable gift this is? You can buy a single charm on a suede necklace for as little as $30. A single charm on a sterling silver necklace is $40. A charm on a sterling silver key chain is $50 (stainless steel is $30) and a sterling silver bracelet with three charms is $85. (Those key chains are great Valentine’s Day or Fathers Day gifts for the guys, too.)
Happy Valentine’s Day shopping!
