Butterfly Jewelry: The Perfect Gift for Girls

As parents we’re often amazed at how quickly our kids grow up. Time flies. It seems that they were just born a little while ago, and here we are kissing them good-bye on their first day of school or middle school or … Wait.

They might even be a teenager, sometimes too cool to be kissed in public—by their parents, that is. And all we want to do is tell them that we love them, always and no matter what, that they are beautiful the way they are, that we are proud of them, that we believe in them, that we support the deliberate choices they make for their life, that life is a journey, and so much more.

In many ways, our children are like butterflies. They constantly develop and don’t seize to amaze us. But transformation and change aren’t always easy—not for them and not for us. Change can seem scary. Some kids have to deal with peer pressure and bullying. They need to find their own way. And at some point, we need to set them free.

That’s why anything with butterflies is a perfect gift for kids, especially for daughters. A small piece of butterfly jewelry can express everything that we feel for our little (or not-so-little-anymore) girl. It’s a symbol of transformation, change, or love. My favorites are small charms or earrings.
