Gift for new mothers

Now and again, I’ll get a sweet email from a dad asking for gift ideas for his pregnant wife. I can't imagine a new mama who wouldn't adore this beautiful ring. It brings tears to my eyes!

P.S. 8 best gifts for new parents.

I blogged about this ring too and hinted to the husband it'd make an excellent push present when the time comes in a few weeks. It's just gorgeous!

Aww..that is such a sweet ring. Love! Happy Monday, Joanna

Although I'm not a mom, one of my most prized possessions is a ring my dad gave to my mom when they first found out they were expecting me. I could imagine a ring like this one pictured being passed throughout the family as a new daughter or daughter in law is expecting.

The father of my child is English. When I was pregnant my sister-in-law would constantly talk about the fact that I will be getting an eternity ring (something that women generally get from their spouses when they are pregnant with the first child, at least in the UK). I got something similar to this gem and when I did, I exclaimed, "Oh, thank you! I was so hoping I would get a maternity ring." Those English are sometimes hard to understand. The whole time I thought she was saying maternity, not eternity - it just made sense.

abigail said...

this is lovely! The diamonds on the top are a nice touch too ; ) I love how the inscription is hidden and how delicate the ring is.

I would love to see a new-mom gift guide cup of jo version, like you do at christmas etc. I bet it would be stunning and very sweet.

thanks for sharing this!

Jennifer_NJ said...

Love the gift guide idea! Joanna should totally do that!

Such a gorgeous, thoughtful gift. Props to any dad who takes the hint. My aunt actually gave me a similar gift at my shower. A ring from Nelle and Lizzy (http://www.nelleandlizzy.com/) that has my daughter's name engraved in it.

Very sweet gift idea for dads to be to get moms to be! My sisters both have children now and I bought them necklaces with angel birthstone pendants so you can add more with new arrivals.

Jennifer King said...

I think that ring from St. Kilda is a perfect gift. I love all their jewelry. I thought about getting a ring similar to this for my wedding band - the inscription would have said "loved." Such a sweet present for a new mom, too!

Any ideas for new dads? I've been trying to think of something special to give my baby's daddy but I'm coming up empty (and the internet only gives super cheesy ideas).

every friend of mine's and my hubby's, every one i meet in the last couple months are having kids, have kids or wanna get pregnant. Maybe it's a sign for me?

I would like it even more if it was available in white gold. My wedding ring and engagement ring are of that kind and my watch is "cool" metal too.

rebecca said...

Oh my heart is melting. That is simply beautiful.

Very sweet idea. xo

I love this! Being a soon-to-be mom (eeps!), this is definitely something I'd love to have :-)

ginger said...

After seeing the "loved" version of this ring on your blog I made it my wedding band. I would love to have this to accompany it when I become a mama.

Karelys (Beltran) Davis said...

I think it's fantastic. Especially when you can't wear your own wedding ring because hands swell. I am recently pregnant and even at two months for some reason my hands swell too much. I am looking for a ring to wear during pregnancy because my wedding set will be too tight!

Sarah said...

Super cute idea!!!

Hi Jo,

Love the blog. I literally just got off the phone with my best friend who will be soon delivering her very first bundle of joy, and she asked me for ideas for gifts for her husband - as a new time father... I love this ring idea for her, but I couldn't think of what to get him... I figured you would be the perfect person. If you have time I would love some ideas!

Ooh, I love this!

hermes bag outlet said...

Designer catier watches look sophisticated and stylish. Designer handbags are always light in weight as well as spacious. Now-a-days winter jackets serves not only its practical function, but also is used as a status symbol for emphasizing the user's identity. The miu miu hobo variety that you can get in handbags is tremendous. if you look at the various brands of cheap chanel shopping and you will find that qualities and brands never go parallel to each other. There cheap hermes handbags will be something different with the different products.
