Valentine's jewelry giveaway for you

When I was growing up, lots of moms had necklaces with those gold girl and boy doll charms. I always wondered why my mom never got one, which could explain the years of therapy.

Just so you don't give your kids a complex, you could score one of these pretty thangs from AJ's Collection.


The Three Name Charm Necklace (worth $73). If you have four kids, you'll get four charms. Two kids, two charms. One kid, one charm. You get the idea.

The My Family Is The Key To My Heart Necklace (worth $84).

Two readers will each win the necklace of their choice. To enter, leave a comment about the one you'd like.

Warning: Neither of these will work for you if happen to be Michelle Duggar.

Bonus entries:

Tweet about this giveaway (one a day). Here's one for ya: Win a beautiful sterling necklace that celebrates your kids from @LoveThatMax, ends 2/10, http://tinyurl.com/4vnrbw8
Call my mom and ask her why she never got one of those necklaces with the little gold dolls. Kid-ding!

This giveaway is open until 11:59 p.m. EST on 2/10. I will randomly pick two winners and alert you by email, which means that if your email is not visible on your blog, you have to leave it below.

Good luck! Also, now through 3/31, you can get a 10 percent discount at AJ's Collection with the code MAX10.

I love that Max is a discount code. Not sure how he feels about that.

Update: Congrats to Stephanie Pinkster (who scores a My Family is Key To My Heart necklace) and to Heather Garcia (who liked the Three Name one). Enjoy them! Drop by and show my mom!

  1. Beautiful necklaces, Ellen! Kinda makes me wish I had kids so I could try my luck at winning one. Oh, and by the way, the Michelle Duggar joke was funny. ;)

  47. I'm thinking that maybe your mom never got one of those necklaces because no one gave her one for Mothers' Day. :)
    I've always wanted to get one for my mom. But then she went and adopted 6 more kids. I don't think they make necklaces with that many charms (12 total).
