The gifts that bring the tears. In a good way.

Locharm bracelet from The Fine Art of Familyngtime readers of Cool Mom Picks know we’ve been huge fans of photographer-turned-jewelry designer Monica Rich Kosann of MRK Style for years now. She makes the stunning sterling and gold keepsakes that make the recipient go all weepy. Men included. So we were extra excited that they wanted to sponsor our holiday gift guide this year (yay Monica!) – and on top of that, offer up a $200 gift certificate to a Cool Mom Picks reader. (Yay Monica!)

All the details about the giveaway are on our guide, but we thought we’d help you start spending that $200 by pointing out a few of our favorites from her web shop.

I fell in love with the carnelian heart fob pendant when I first saw it earlier in the year, because it’s so versatile -  it would make a very special gift for anyone from a beloved caregiver (from the kids of course) to your always awesome stepmother. Or uh, me. Hint. You can also check out the beautiful chain link bracelets in silver (or gold if you’re fancy) which can turn into a very cool holiday tradition; my girls each received one from their grandparents for their first Christmas, and each year they get a new charm of some sort to add to it.

These are not inexpensive gifts. But they are the gifts that gets handed down to the next generation and the ones after that. Lovely. -Liz
