Stepkids Wedding Jewelry Question: I have an 8 yr old son and he has 2 daughters (11 and 15). We purchased engravable gifts from Things Remembered but haven’t had them engraved yet. There isn’t a ton of space and I want it to be truly meaningful. What do you think of ‘Dream – Believe – Achieve’

Jewelry is a sentimental gift as it can be worn daily to serve as a reminder of the special occasion. By having your gifts engraved with a personal message, date or phrase you’re really making a effort to show how much you care. As the child grows up you want to make sure the message has staying power and they’ll think fondly of the moment. If the ceremony is religious, maybe a religious message could work.

How sweet! I think each message should be unique since each child and relationship is unique.

Although your words are inspirational, I think something more family related should be written. Maybe a message for your son from his soon to be stepfather and a message from you to each of the girls. Maybe something like “It’s not flesh/blood but the heart which makes us family” or “The love of family is one of life’s greatest blessings”. “Chance makes you daughter; love makes you friend”.

I hope this gets the creative juices flowing.

I agree with the previous post. I’d make each one unique so each child feels special. The gifts are already similar and that’s fine, the engraving is what will make it special.family1249

I also agree that the engraving should be something unique to your relationships with the kids. I know you were just throwing an idea out there, but “Dream, Believe, Achieve” can be for anyone. It’s not special.

You’ve put the time into wanting to give this special gift, so go all the way. If you’re feeling stuck, there are tons of great sites with quotes and sayings. My personal favorite is Quote Garden. Here’s a link for quotes on family: http://www.quotegarden.com/family.html

149 The idea of giving spiritual gifts to your children is wonderful. It will mean a lot. “Dream – Believe – Achieve” is more appropriate for a high school graduation than a wedding gift for your children. If there is room for very few words , simply “Our Family” works. Or more loving, “Our Children, Our Hearts”

Blessings!

Oh, I love that last suggestion, Our Children, Our Hearts! How about even more specialized, our daughter/son, our heart, so that each child is addressed singularly?
