Heirloom Gifts for Girls


With all the cheap, plastic, technological and trendy items, our young ladies are missing out on special gifts that they can use and hand down as heirlooms to their daughters. Here are some suggestions of some beautiful and timeless treasures for the maidens in your life:



A special Bible with all the family history dates recorded inside... Perhaps you as parents can write something special inside to dedicate the Scriptures to your daughter. You can include verses which have been a blessing to you.

My Personal Favorite

Pasting on a bookplate with a special thought hand written by you will make this extra special. It will also be wonderful to have your own handwriting and words available for the next generation to enjoy and benefit from. I value anything with my grandmother's handwriting since she passed away at a young age. It makes her memory more personal to me. Here is something to inspire you to write from the heart:

"If instead of a gem, or even a flower,
we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend,
that would be giving as the angels give."
~ George MacDonald




But most importantly, we must remember what means the most to any maiden:

"The greatest gift is a portion of thyself."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
