Oh My Giddy Aunt - Engraved Puzzle Link (GIVEAWAY)

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED! THE WINNER IS SHANNONANDANNE. Congratulations! And thanks to those who entered. Please check your email Shannonandanne!

Sometimes you come across a business that you just know is very special. All the products are gorgeous, the items are well priced and the customer service is excellent.

I can honestly tell you that this has been my experience of Oh My Giddy Aunt. I recently wrote a business profile about the lovely lady who started it all, Chief Aunt Nikki here.

When Nikki told me she would like to give away a puzzle piece to a lucky School of Mum reader I thought this was going to fit me PERFECTLY! I've been hinting at my husband for ages that I would love to have a wearable item that represents us, as a family. I was originally thinking a pendant like this...

But when I saw the puzzle piece I thought that was so pretty and I already have a necklace I wear all the time that means a lot to me. Within a couple of emails Nikki had organised to have a bracelet with two puzzle pieces, engraved and attached sent out to me.

The delivery was fast. Express in fact. I had expected to wait a while considering it was being engraved. But within 3 days it was here!

The wrapping and packaging was stunning. It made me all the more excited to see the quality of the product inside.

And it did not disappoint. Beautiful, shiny, sterling silver and perfect engraving. I can't wait to add symbols to it that mean something to myself and my family.

Oh My Giddy Aunt specialises in commemorative pieces. Here's a few of my favourites!

    Great milestones and time well spent!
    My children and hubby celebrated
    Every special event commemorated!

  10. These are so adorable! First i would have 1 for my wonderful husband Franc to celerbrate the day we got married. And 2nd piece would be for my darling little angel Sam, with whom I give all my heart and love him more than anything.


  11. Hi my name is Jenya, I have been staling SoM for ages, and have also liked Oh My Giddy Aunt's page - what beautiful creations!
    I think a piece of puzzle with my daughter's name on it will be a good representation of how her arrival has made our lives more complete. I don't wear necklaces often, and when I do I would like them to have a special meaning (well, if I wil it will be a necklace :) )
    my e-mail address is

  12. A special little treasure,
    To mark my life's pleasure,
    Which is my sweet children three,
    And my best friend - my hubby!
    So on a necklace daintily strung,
    Four puzzle pieces would be hung!
    Each engraved with their names so when we're apart,
    I can still always keep them close to my heart!



    Life is like a puzzle, you can shove two ill-fitting pieces together, but there's nothing like finding those perfect fitting pieces - my husband and daughter
