Her First Jewelry Box
Most girls fondly remember their first jewelry box
, even if it ended up being less of a place to store jewelry
than a place to hide other treasures. The music it played and the little ballerina that spun in front of the mirror bring back wonderful memories for many women, and they want to pass that on to their daughters.
Today’s children’s jewelry boxes
have come a long way from the days when they just had a single compartment and all had the same ballerina and the same music. There are many choices available today, from musical to non-musical, from ballerinas to animals. You can choose a combination for a girls jewelry box
that reflect her unique taste and personality.
When selecting a jewelry box
for a child, consider age and interests as well how the box may be used. A first jewelry box
doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate, but should be light and sized for smaller hands. A pink box with a twirling ballerina may be perfect for a girly girl, but a cat, horse or other animal may be better for a tomboy. An older child or teen may be ready for a box that they can carry with them for life, so a wooden box would be good choice. Small children with little hands may drop a heavier box and hurt themselves.
Whatever style you choose, a girl’s first jewelry box
is sure to be appreciated and fondly remembered far into the future.
