Good Gift Ideas For Stepmom - Birthday, Mother's Day, Christmas, Or Just To Say I Love You
The joy of hearing her stepchild call her, “Mom” means more to a stepmom than any card or present ever could. The greatest gift you can give to your stepmother is your love and acceptance. To be welcomed and loved by their step kids as a true mom is something that many step moms never really get to experience, so be sure to share with her what she means to you. Not only will your affection and kindness bless your stepmom, but it will also be a blessing to your dad too.
But despite your kindness towards your stepparent over the years, your stepmom may sometimes still feel like an outsider. Let her know that she is loved with a gift from the heart, something that will completely surprise her.
If in the past you haven't normally given her a gift -- or perhaps have given cards only -- why not catch her off guard this year with a sterling silver ring, or perhaps a white gold pendant or bracelet? Jewelry can certainly be costly, but you don't have to break the bank to find something she'll love.
Custom music boxes and jewelry boxes also make great gifts for moms. Do you remember how much you loved listening to a music box when you were a kid? Moms still love them today.
Is your stepmom a crafter? Does she love walking along the beach and collecting sea glass? Take a look at this incredible 2013 calendar by New England photographer Don Verger. It’s filled with lovely images and sea glass crafting ideas that will inspire your stepmom and bring out her inner artist.
Jeweled lid silver music jewelry box on Amazon
Proverbs 31 Silver Musical Jewelry Box
I found this musical jewelry box on Amazon, and I think it’s pretty cool. It’s a wood box with brushed silver finish and features an assortment of blue, clear and silver gems on the lid. No, they aren’t genuine jewels; perhaps made of glass or plastic. Sorry. But they do look very pretty, and your stepmom will love it.
There are several photos on Amazon showing the details of the jeweled lid, the interior, and the little silver feet, etc.
The lid also features a nice little selection of Bible scripture, taken from Proverbs 31 (NIV), with a pretty blue butterfly design on it. It reads as follows…
“Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”
The verse is printed on a 4” x 6” card that can be removed from behind the little window. This is the standard photo print size, so you can customize the music box and put your own photo of you and your Stepmom on the lid if you prefer. If so, then I recommend converting your photo to black and white or grayscale, as this will blend perfectly with the silver and blue color scheme of the box.
The interior has black velvet, with the musical mechanism encased in glass to protect it from loose earrings or whatever. The bottom also has little silver feet with pads so that it won’t scratch the surface of whatever it is placed on.
It has a very nice, modern look to it. I love it!
The box is 8 inches (width) x 6 inches (depth) by 4 inches (height).
When you open the lid, the music begins to play. It’s just a chime/instrumental version of a song called, “On Eagle’s Wings,” by Michael Joncas, and you can listen to it first here on Youtube if you like. Again, the music box is just a wind-up chime version of the song, just like old-style music boxes (no batteries required)…
