It's baby shower time. You could give a "same-old, same-old" gift like onesies and matching socks. Or you could give something unique, one-of-a-kind, memorable, and sweet - like a necklace from Julian & Co.
Julian & Co. ("never too little for style") is a jewelry company that was "created by a fashion forward mom who couldn't find a baby bracelet small enough to fit her premature son." Tania, the fashion-forward mom behind the company, handcrafts every personalized piece.
There are plenty of stylish options to choose from for mom, dad, and baby, but my absolute favorite is the Julian & Co. birth necklace.
This necklace is unbelievably simple and sweet. It's delicate and unobtrusive - a shiny silver square on a delicate sterling chain. On one side of the square is my daughter's name and a pair of itty bitty footprints. On the other side is my daughter's birth date, weight, and height. I often receive comments from other moms about how lovely it is.
This necklace would be an especially powerful gift for a mom who plans to go back to work (either out of necessity or desire) because it will undoubtedly serve as a reminder of the little beloved bundle back home. That said, any mom would treasure this precious gift.
