    Default The hardest gift

    I've been living in the US for 2 years now working full time looking after 2 gorgeous little girls. They are now 4 and 6.

    It is soon my time to leave an I am wanting to get them a nice piece of jewelry to remember me by.



    Option 1- thinking a necklace but have no idea where to start, thought a locket but thought it may be too bulky or heavy for a little girl to wear

    Option 2 love heart handstamord engraved maybe? but engraved with what ?

    Option 3 any ideas haha!!! even links to any US sellers/sites
    I have mainly been looking on etsy but not sure where to begin


    --- also not wanting much mote than $20-25 each as I'm including a scrapbook each

    A charm bracelet and you start it off with a charm that relates to you somehow? Something Australian or something symbolising your personality?
    I'm not sure if you can buy them within your prescribed budget though?

    I'm rubbish at those types of gifts but felt a thud of sadness when I was reading your post. Leaving 2 little ones that you have been around for 2 years would be terribly hard.

    I would just find out their favorite animal or whatever and just google that. For example horse necklace. They would probably really like that.

    What about fingerprint jewellery? You can leave "a little piece of you" with them?

    Or something like a little charm bracelet with one or two charms specifically chosen eg maybe a koala for you and a heart for them?

    Or remember those BFF necklaces that were heart shaped and split in two and you wore one and your bestie wore one, maybe see if you can find one split in 3 and you can each have a piece?
