Fourth Blogiversary Giveaway #2: Paloma’s Nest $100 Gift Certificate

Welcome to Blogiversary Giveaway #2! I’m so excited to introduce you to Paloma’s Nest. How have I not found this incredible shop before? Owner/designer Caroline Colom Vasquez creates handmade modern heirlooms including accessories, holiday decorations, and home furnishings. These sentimental pieces are meant to be cherished for generations, and are perfect for nostalgic, keepsake-loving moms like me (and probably many of you, too). Best of all, each item has simple, understated beauty. These are some of the most elegant keepsakes I have ever seen. I love them and I know you will too.

The winner of this giveaway will receive a $100 gift certificate to spend on any items they choose. Here are some of the items I love the most:

First, from the Little Bird Collection for Baby & Family, these custom maple wood baby clothes hangers ($26) are, I think, my favorite baby gift of 2011. Aren’t they beautiful? The 7.5″ hangers are hand-stamped with baby’s name and/or birthdate, and have notched shoulders. You definitely have to hang these outside of the closet in the nursery- don’t keep them hidden!

Another baby keepsake (or wedding keepsake) is this Custom “where we met”/”where you were born” map ($32). Such a sweet way to commemorate a special place, this geography-inspired fine white clay ornament will mark the approximate location of your choosing with a heart. Bonus: it’s available not just in a US version, but also Australia, Canada, and the UK. Includes a natural cord to hang on a Christmas tree, or on a wall in your home.

Looking for a unique Valentine’s gift? How about Paloma’s Nest’s Custom Heart of Gold ($28)? It’s a delicate 4″ paper-mache sculpture heart stamped with the text of your choice. I love the shimmer of the golf leaf paint.

One of Paloma’s Nest’s best-known items, the original Custom Tiny Text Bowl is an all-around perfect gift to commemorate a new baby, engagement, wedding, anniversary, or just about any other special occasion. These little 3.5″ ceramic dishes are hand-stamped with your choice of text and then can serve so many purposes (I have a similar dish that I use to put my rings at night).

Do you love these custom gifts as much as I do? I thought so. Browse around at PalomasNest to see what else you’d like to buy with a $100 gift certificate.
