As a mother and also a daughter, I have given and received my fair share of gifts. One of my passions for those of you who do indeed follow me know that I love Pandora and Trollbeads too. For most holidays, I am now given a gift usually from one or the other from my family. I started both my mom and my mother-in-law on Pandora Jewelry and have gotten them charms as gifts for birthdays and holidays now too.

Since I have been writing articles on my love of these charms, one of my loyal supporters, actually mentioned he would like to give these charms as gifts too and got me thinking about what would be appropriate gifts. Thus I decided to narrow the topic here and look at Pandora gifts for mothers in this article. Without further delay, I will name and explain the top 5 choices for Pandora gifts for mothers.

1. The Mom Charm

The mom charm is a beautiful two-tone charm with pink CZ and gold where the "O" for mom is. I actually received this as one of the first charms that my husband and kids bought for me when I first started to collect; because of that this one truly holds a special place in my heart. It really is the perfect charm for mothers everywhere and what better way to say "I am a mom", then a charm that has mom written on it. Also, when Pandora did their Mother's Day promo this past year, this charm was showcased front and center and was even offered in a special package deal for Mother's Day. So it makes sense that this would be my number one choice for a gift for moms everywhere. The mom charm retails in US stores for $75.

2. The Little Girl/The Little Boy

Whether you have girls, boys or both, these two silver charms say it all so simply. The little girl, of course, symbolizes daughters and little girls everywhere. This silver charm has such detail on it, from her pigtails in her hair down to her feet hidden at the bottom under her dress. As for the little boy, who symbolizes sons of course, he too is simply adorable with his curly mop of hair and his striped shirt. I love these two, because even though they contain a simple message, they truly are so intricate and complex in design. Each retail for $35 in US Stores.

3. The Mother/Daughter Dangle

The Mother/Daughter Dangle, a silver and enamel charm, was introduced this past year in Pandora's spring line and was a major hit also for Mother's Day. This can be worn three ways if you look at the pictures I know you see two, but will explain further. The first way to be worn are that the two hearts are closed and you see one silver texturized heart. The second way it can be worn is separated on your bracelet, where you see two red enamel hearts, one says 'mother' on it and the other says 'daughter' on it. The third option is that you keep one and give the other to your own mother and/or daughter. By the way, each piece of the dangle that threads on the bracelet says "You and Me" and "Me and You". This charm is just simply amazing and again Pandora out did themselves on the detail on this one. In the US, it retails for $95 in stores and is absolutely beautiful.

4. The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life is another one of Pandora's two-tone charms, meaning it is both silver and gold. It is a round charm that has what appears to be gold leaves interwoven on it. This charm symbolizes the gift of life, which mothers are truly the provider of. Even though this doesn't say mother or mom written in big letters knowing what this one symbolizes truly speaks volumes for here. Yet again, it a beautiful design and so finely wrought with decoration. If you purchase this one for mom, she surely will not be disappointed. In the US Stores, this retails for $80.

5. Birthday Blooms

Birthday Blooms are birthstone charms that Pandora carries for every month of the year. The picture to the right showcases October, which is a silver charm with a pink opal, but please be aware this is just one of a dozen charms with different birthstones for each month. What made me include this in a gift guide for mom is for two reasons. One this one could be given to symbolize the actual month mom is born in. For example, my mother-in-law is born is August and just mentioned she would like the birthday bloom for August for her own birthday, so she can showcase her own birthstone on her bracelet. The second reason that you may want to give this one to your mom is to symbolize her children's birthstones. If my husband bought me the birthday blooms to symbolize my own girls, he would have to purchase July for my first born and November for my second born. So it can be worn symbolizing either the mom's own birthday or her kids' birthdays. The choice is up to you, the gift giver. Each birthday bloom retails in the US for $65.

Summing up the Gift Guide for Mothers:

So there you have it a nice and compact Pandora Charms gift guide for mothers. I truly do hope this one helped to give the reader some varied and beautiful gift ideas for mom the next time you need to purchase one. I, for one, can tell you that as a mom I own 4 out of 5 of these stunning charms and I absolutely treasure them. The fifth I have seen and am gifting to my own mother-in-law as I stated earlier and can tell you that it is also a beauty and you will not be sorry if you buy any of these for your own mom. With that I leave you with this, "Happy Shopping!"

Which is your favorite Pandora charm for mom?

      Wow! You gave more ideas for mommy's day. Voted for the Pandora Charm for mom. The designs are cool and complement our love. The Earth Charm came in second. We love nature, so that gave us gift ideas for later on or those end of the year holidays. You are getting better by the day Janine. Thanks for sharing.

      ShiningIrishEyes, I too love the Mother/Daughter charms and ended up buying this dangle not just for myself, but for my own mother too. I couldn't bear to separate them for either, so we both have our own set. Thank you for the compliment on the one and hope I helped give so valuable gift options too!!

      Dianna, I love all those as well and own the little girl and tree of life charm too (don't have the little boy myself, because I am the mother of girls) and I am just so happy to give some advice on gifts for this upcoming holiday season. Thanks again for your thoughtful words and for your constant support!

      Honestly it is totally up to you. i actually have both pieces, because I am both a mother and daughter and I gave the full set to my own mom, because she too is a mother and was a daughter. But it really is left up to your own feelings and needs on this one. Hope this helped a bit!!
