Pictures on Gold Photo Charm Expandable Bracelet Giveaway

We love the jewelry from Pictures on Gold. They have so many great options for you to create unique and special gifts for everyone on your holiday gift list.

Their Custom Engraved Photo Jewelry is of the highest quality. Years ago, I created a photo keychain for my husband that he uses every day and it still looks just as good as the day I gave it to him. Last Father’s Day I gave him a photo dog chain necklace that he wears every day including when he swims and showers and it looks perfect.

This holiday season, I created a beautiful photo charm of my 2 youngest children. It hangs off the expandable bracelet and is such a lovely piece.

Great Ideas for Christening Gifts

A new child is an amazing thing. Even though babies are born every day, each one is unique, a new life to nurture and a new opportunity for humanity.

Most cultures around the world celebrate the birth of a baby in some way, whether it’s a big feast, a religious service, or presenting the new child with a special gift.

In the US and Europe, new babies traditionally receive gifts like silver bracelets, metal-bound photo-albums, money boxes and photo frames. If you know that the new baby in your circle will be awash with items like these, then it might be a good idea to think outside the box a little.

Here’s some ideas for unusual – but still very much appreciated – christening gifts.

An investment for the future

Photo albums are great, they’re keepsakes and can be filled with family photos, but many parents are starting their child’s investment funds earlier than ever. How about giving the baby some valuable gold coins to either pass on to their own children or to sell when college tuition time rolls around? A good range of coins, as well as, some valuable advice, is available here, check it out, you really can’t go wrong.

Personalised jewelry

You can buy jewelry – usually a necklace – beautiful pendants with the initials of mother and child, or of the child and the entire family. These are generally not to be worn, but to be cherished as a keepsake. There are more modern, brushed metal options available in addition to, the more traditional highly polished styles. You can choose metals that have significance for the family as well.

Buy a piece of Mars

This is quite good fun, especially if the baby is born under the sign of Aries or Scorpio, which are believed by astrologers to be ruled by the red planet. This is, on the face of it, a delightful bit of whimsy – who doesn’t want to give their children the moon and the stars? However, with astronomers (the real scientists…) predicting we may be terraforming Mars within a generation or so, owning a Martian acre may turn out to be incredibly lucrative!

A Noah’s Ark

If the family is religious, it is likely the baby will probably receive gifts of crosses and christening certificate scrolls.  You can still follow this theme, but approach it from a different angle and make a splash with a fancy Noah’s Ark set.  Some of the best arks are carved from wood in painted or natural finishes. When choosing a set, you should aim for those with chunky, substantial pieces that are easy for babies and young children to hold and play with.

Plant a tree in the child’s name

This is a particularly poignant gesture because as we all know, trees are the lungs of the planet and future generations need them more than ever. The tree can be planted in the family garden, or in a public park, if permissible in your community. The tree can be further enhanced with a plaque engraved with the child’s birth date and name.

Feeling inspired by these ideas? Let us know what you decided upon or give us your own unique christening gift ideas.

If you hurry, you can save 59% and pick up this beauty that can be engraved on the back with a special message for just $49. Sale ends today, so don’t delay!

Shop Personalized Cart For Special & Unique Gifts

Have you ever wracked your brain trying to think of the perfect gift for someone special? If you are like me, you probably have. When I am really stuck, I try to think of something unique. Personalized gifts are a great choice for one-of-a-kind presents.

Recently, I was looking for something special for my husband on Personalized Cart. I found a large watch case that was just perfect. My husband loves cases like this, and I appreciated how large it was with 12 compartments on top, and a drawer on the bottom. The top has a clear glass pane that allows you to see inside, but I thought you could add a special photo or other artwork to change the look.

Each of the compartments has a soft pillow that you can fasten your watch around. You could also remove the pillows to store other items. It is a very versatile box that can be used to store many kinds of items. The drawer on the bottom is perfect for holding my husband’s wallet, pens, passport and more. Best of all, I was able to have it customized with his initials.


The workmanship of the box was very nice with dovetail detail on the drawer and a sort of weathered finish that makes it look like an heirloom. This box would make a great birthday, Father’s Day or Christmas gift for anyone.

Check out the Personalized Cart site for many other items for women, men, babies, weddings and other occasions. Don’t miss the giveaway below for a monogram necklace. For other unique gifts, hover here for more info.
