The Perfect Pendant

I absolutely adore wearing pendants. A beautiful pendant can instantly add the wow factor to any type of outfit. My collection includes diamond, sapphire, ruby, purple amethyst, green amethyst, blue topaz, and garnet pendants. I like classically shaped pendants such as heart ones. My favorite pendant is the heart shaped diamond one my husband presented me with on our memorable honeymoon. Whenever I want to add sparkle to an outfit, I wear this stunning piece of jewelry. On this blog, I hope you will discover the amazing benefits of owning a variety of different types and sizes of pendants. Enjoy!

Three Christmas Gift Ideas For Tween Girls

by Natalie Fields

Are you finding it difficult to Christmas shop for your preteen daughter? If you are, don't worry. You aren't alone. Tween girls—girls between the ages of 10 and 12—are often tough critics. In addition, it's also very likely that at this age your daughter is in the stage where she thinks she's too old for toys, but she's not quite old enough for the type of gifts you'd purchase for a teenager. It's okay, though. There are options. Check out these five Christmas gift ideas for preteen girls.

Custom Jewelry

Your daughter is growing up, and growing out of the kiddie jewelry she owns. However, she's not quite ready for her first pair of diamond earrings. Acknowledge the fact that she's getting older buy purchasing her a piece of custom jewelry. Keep it simple, though. You can find great ideas through custom jewelers such as Bender's Jewelers. Ask them about:

  • Silver bracelets that are engraved with inspirational words
  • Lockets that have room for a pictures or charms
  • Charm bracelets that you can customize
  • Necklaces with dog-tagged shaped pendants—either one that is engraved with a reflecting her personality or one that you can have engraved
  • Jewelry with her name on it

Manicure Supplies

She may not be old enough for makeup, but there's a good chance your tween enjoys painting her nails. Fill a box with all of the supplies she needs to have her own in-home spa day. Include products such as:

  • Nail polish in several different colors
  • Nail polish remover
  • A manicure set
  • Cuticle oil
  • Cotton balls
  • Hand lotion
  • Toe dividers

If your daughter is creative consider including some other fun nail accessories that she can experiment with, such as:

  • Nail wraps
  • Press-on nails—choose small nails with fun designs that are made specifically for preteens
  • A nail stamping kit


Skip the boring blank journals, even the ones with cute designs on the covers, and choose books that put a modern spin on traditional journaling. Look for one-line-a-day journals to encourage your daughter to write down something special that happened that day, or a journal that has specific tasks for our daughter to complete and record. Alternatively, you could give your daughter the supplies she needs to start her own scrapbook or art journal.

When it comes to buying Christmas gives for tween girls, you have to think outside the box. Opt for simple gifts that make her feel like the teenager she's so eager to be and you can't go wrong.
