2017 - WHODATHUNKIT?!
Do you sometimes get a little surprise when you see the date? The numbers spin by so quickly but maybe the more things change the more things stay the same. Milestones and rituals may evolve but they still tell the stories of our lives, and your Giddy Aunts are still here to help with traditional treasures and new giddy goodies.
NEW GIDDY GOODIES
Speaking of tradition, look what's new!
Perfect for first little milestones, fantastic money boxes and piggy banks that can be hand-engraved with names, dates or a meaningful message.
BIG TOOTH FAIRY NEWS
The TF (Tooth Fairy) has granted CGA (Chief Giddy Aunt) permission to make Tooth-Fairy Wish-Charm bracelets available to those NOT losing teeth. That's right! Now bracelets can also be ordered with soldered charms which means all wishes are given at once for special occasions that call for a lot of wonderful wishes. More here
If you are expecting a wobbly tooth this year you might also like these ideas.
WHAT'S NEW & BLUE & SAYS I LOVE YOU?
New tiny, tiny BlueBirds set on tiny hearts!
Available as earrings and pendants.
LOCKETS FOR A REASON
Oh My Giddy Aunt's range of lockets are in all shapes and styles. New to the range are the Mum, Nana, Grandma hearts as well as contemporary, plain memorial lockets in oval and heart shapes that combine a photo frame with a container. The oval shape is a simple tag to be worn by men and women.
BACK TO SCHOOL
Hmmm... not really our forte, unless you want to send junior off with a sterling silver bookmark, although we do have some school stationery-inspired paperclip keepsakes for something a little different, PaperClippies or perhaps a big sterling silver paper clips for the folding kind of paper ;) but on a more serious note, if your preschool, school or sports club is fundraising this year and needs raffle or auction prizes please email us and we will do our best to help.
ONE GIDDY GREAT AUNT'S STORY
We know about Mother/Daughter jewellery but what about matching Great Aunt/Great Niece jewellery? When Joan contacted us to say "the ring is just gorgeous. I'm almost tempted to keep it myself. I'm sure my Great Niece will love it when she is a little older. She is currently 15 months old" the thought occurred that she should have one too! We love the idea of two special people, generations apart, connected by the same keepsake... especially when it is a bow ring. Is this what is meant by the ties that bind?
DO YOU KNOW... WHY MONEY BOXES ARE PIGGY BANKS?

Thank you so much again for being a little bit giddy! Wishing you much peace and love in whatever milestones and rituals that tell the story of your life in 2017.
All the best
Chief Giddy Aunt
