But of course, he and the kids always plan something special and its always nice being celebrated. Its absolutely the small things that get me - its the crayon colored pictures that are lined up on the kitchen table before breakfast with stick figures of our little family. Its the big kit kat bar that the kids picked out for me because they know how much i love chocolate. It's the Blue Mountain cards that my husband knows I love because they always have the perfect sentiment on the cards.
But this year he and the kids really caught me by surprise. They took me to Hamilton Jewelers in Princeton, NJ because I raved so much about it a few weeks ago and helped me pick out the most beautiful mother's day present.
I can't even explain how special it was watching the kids pick out pieces that they thought I would love. Jewelry really does have a way of making you feel good. They definitely are an investment piece but they have such a high emotional value to them that makes them worth getting.
It was cute seeing the kids talk with each other and explain why they thought I would like certain pieces. Gabriel picked out these dainty bracelets that he knew I would love. And he hit it on the nose with the rose gold metal. I love that these pieces were adjustable. I have such tiny wrists so bracelets are always a struggle for me.
Alessandra picked out this beautiful rose gold bangle from their Heritage line that absolutely makes a statement.
They compromised and met in the middle by picking out a pretty stack of thin 18k gold and diamond bangles.
Alessa then decided she wanted me to wear matching earrings to hers so she chose these stunning diamond stud earrings. I was totally in love. If you haven't heard me say this enough, stud earrings are an absolute jewelry box staple. I wear studs everywhere, even to the gym, and you will 100% get your return on investment on them.
But then Gabe convinced Alessa that they needed to pick out a necklace since I never take my current necklace off. (I got the hint.) So they each chose an option. Gabe picked this beautiful rose gold round diamond solitaire necklace and Alessa chose this white gold teardrop shape necklace. Ahh, both were so different yet so beautiful.
My present was so special to me, but what makes it even more special is the memories I have of the kids picking it out. What a treat to be able to experience this with my kids and my hubby.
Make sure you are following both Hamilton Jeweler and I on instagram to find out which piece I ended up going home with. Thank you so much to my hubby for this fun day with the kids and thank you to Hamilton for helping us find the perfect gift.
This Mother's Day present is definitely one for the books. If you are in NJ, you must check out their store in Princeton. It's such a lovely location and their staff is amazing - especially Ayzia who was so patient with the kids and helped them with pieces that caught their eye for me.
If you are not local, check out their online shop here. They have complimentary shipping and their jewelry truly makes the perfect mother's day present.
I want to give a HUGE thank you to my Alex DeDios Photography for capturing these amazing moments with my family. It was such a fun day and I love having these pictures to remember it by.
