Dot & Dash's Gift Guide for Daughters (and nieces...)

<DRAFT v.7>

Finding a meaningful gift for your daughter (or a special niece) is about to get a whole lot easier! Our morse code jewelry line is designed to make people feel more connected, encouraged, inspired and loved. But there are a lot of options to choose from -- so we've created this handy guide to help you land on the perfect present for her.


Most of our suggested gifts here are part of a set, so you can give matching necklaces, bracelets & earrings for a really special gift. We also offer extenders for our necklaces, so they can easily be layered with other necklaces she likes to wear.

Now, let's jump in!


Words that connect to her childhood

Some of your happiest memories might recall time spent with a sweet girl and a book on your lap, singing songs on car rides, or exchanging nightly ‘love yous’. If so, she’s sure to feel the same way. That's why we created several designs that lean into the mother-daughter connection by evoking favorite childhood phrases that still ring true today. Messages like -- Moon & Back, Love you More and My Sunshine -- are sure to put a smile on her face each time she puts one on and thinks of you. (Or perhaps you have a saying that’s uniquely your own, that should be brought to life as a custom necklace or bracelet.)


Words that reinforce her place in the world 

There are few desires more important, and beautiful, than to be known and loved. And while she rarely drifts away from your thoughts, the world pushes hard against your baby girl. It’s easy for her to lose sight of the truth about what she means to you and so many others. If this sounds right, then check out these three beautiful designs -- Cherished, Adored, and Loved. We created them to serve as powerful touchstones and daily reminders upon which she can stand strong.


Words that create smiles

This one is such a fun gift to give whether you have one daughter or three! Our Favorite Daughter design is one of our newest creations and is quickly becoming quite popular. Like several of our words, the idea for this came from a customer who asked us to create these to give to each of her daughters – forever setting the record straight about who is Mom’s favorite :-) .

Words that encourage or inspire 

The heart of our whole company is to create jewelry that moves people to feel encouraged and inspired. Here we’re calling out two examples that might be exactly what she needs to hear (and feel) each day.  Be-YOU-tiful is a stunning design that reminds her she is gorgeous, inside and out, because of who she truly is. You can also find tons of encouragement and inspiration among the bible verses in our Faith collection. One we’re calling out here as a great confidence builder for a daughter making her way in the world is our Esther 4:14 design, which puts the message “perhaps you were made for such a time as this” on a beautiful necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings.


By Age or Life Stage

High School Girls

 For the teenager navigating the harrowing world of college prep, a social life and maybe her first love, you’re sure to find something to hold onto in our inspirational or faith collections. We also love making custom spirit wear designs like a bracelet she can wear on Game Day with a message (Go Timberwolves!) in her school colors. For the athletic girl, encoding her uniform number into a necklace design in school colors makes a special gift.

College Girls

If she’s left home for campus life there are so many great options. She’s likely planning for a future where an inspirational word like Dream Big or a bible verse like Jeremiah 29:11 (for I know the plans I have for you…) can brighten her walk. If she’s found sisterhood, then we have matching sets for 16 popular sororities! 

Young Adults

Is she a recent bride or a bride-to-be? Then a custom design with her wedding/anniversary date or a poignant scripture about love is a great gift.

If she’s made you a grandmother, then we have a separate gift guide for her mom side. But this cheat sheet suggests you consider Boy Mama, Girl Mama, Mama Bear, Mother of 1/2/3/4, or even a custom design with her child’s birth date, name or the initials of each child.

Wrapping It Up

Phew! We've covered quite a few ideas for giving a really meaningful gift. By now we're hoping the hardest question is narrowing down which of these great options should go home in your shopping cart. 

No matter what you choose, our jewelry is going to arrive in a beautiful and distinctive turquoise box -- wrapped with a white bow -- that makes it very "giftable". And if you ship it directly to her, you can even include a custom note that we'll add to the package.

She's going to love it --- and you're going to love giving it to her!
