My mom and I will be graduating from nursing school next Friday. We have been through so much together, in life and in school. I want to get her something really special for graduation to let her know how proud I am of what she has accomplished. For some reason, my mind keeps coming up blank. The only thing I can think of is a locket with a picture of her mother, who died in August a and was a nurse, inside of it. But that feels generic. Any ideas?? I'm desperate!!

I think it sounds lovely. Maybe get a double locket with your graduation picture in it too, or even a tri-fold one so you can get all three of you together. Get two, so you'll have one for yourself.

 

Here are a few ideas:

 

Amazon.com: 14k Yellow Gold Filligree Heart Three Picture Locket Necklace, You are More Precious to Me than a Heart of Gold, 18": Jewelry

 

Three Picture Locket Necklace For Three Kids

 

Multi Photo Family Lockets

 

Congratulations to the both of you.

OP, that is a fantastic idea! Your mother must miss her own mother terribly and more so during a special moment like graduating from school. I think it's the perfect idea!

Your original idea is already fantastic! I love GrnTeas addition to it.

Honestly, I think it is a very sweet genuine gesture. (=

Congrats on your hard work.

I think the locket is a wonderful idea. 'elprup' is right, Etsy has FANTASTIC hand made jewelry!

Also, you don't have to literally have a picture of her mother to remind her...it can be a phrase engraved or a simple heart. I only bring this up because I personally do not take my jewelry off to shower/sleep/etc.so I don't like to wear jewelry like a locket that might get ruined in the shower.

Congratulations and good luck on boards!

What about a bracelet engraved with her name on with an rn at the end?

Does your nsg school still have nsg school pins? If so, maybe you could have all your initials engraved on the pin.

Thank you all so much for the ideas. I decided to buy her a locker bracelet and will be putting a picture of her and I on one side and a picture of my Gram on the other side. Again, thanks so much! I appreciate the thoughts :)
