I love Origami Owl, especially as a gift for loved ones because it can be so personalized.
I got my living locket and created it to revolve around my family. I did a girl birthstone for my daughter; a boy birthstone for my son; the “I love you” hand (which my family uses all the time); a coffee cup for hubby and my first date; and an “I love my dog” charm because I’m pretty smitten with my dog. And now that my family is growing, I will be able to add a charm for #3 when they come along.
The perfect personalized gift (for yourself or anyone!)
My mother in law is an emotional, sentimental being like me so I knew the perfect gift for her. She loves being a grandma. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), my kids are her only grandkids thus far so when we have thought about other grandmother items for her, we’ve needed something that can grow as the grandchildren do.
What better than Origami Owl?
I got her a large gold locket because I knew she wore gold and because I wanted it to be large enough to fit all her charms.
The “I love you” charm (I’m telling you – this symbol is huge in my family. My kids could sign ‘I love you’ well before they could speak it).
When #3 is born, I will get their heart birthstone to add in and when my sister in law has children, there will be plenty of room for her children too!
I couldn’t be happier with the final gift! And because my family sometimes reads my blog, I had to give it to my mother in law early. She loves it. She wears it everywhere and just tonight she mentioned how many comments she gets in a day for it!
This a completely successful holiday gift!
