My mom is the most selfless person I know. Despite our near-constant communication, it's not always easy to remind her of that from 3,000 miles away. That's why this year, I was determined to make her birthday special. To accomplish this mission, I checked out our oh-so-helpful Good Housekeeping gift guides and stumbled upon a custom-made bracelet. Long story short, it's the best birthday, Mother's Day, or [insert any holiday] gift ever.

For $45, you can send a note to your mom that arrives in the form of a bracelet. Using some sort of magic, Etsy shop IME JEWELRY copies your handwriting to make this one-of-a-kind, best-selling piece. And don't just take my word for it; nearly 6,000 Etsy shoppers gave it a five-star review.

But wait, there's more: They’re on sale right now. The store slashed prices by 20%, and you can purchase one for just $36.

Here's how the process worked for me: I teamed up with my dad and sister, and we shared these notes with the seller.

And they turned into ... *drum roll, please*

My dad confirmed that my mom cried ... a lot. So much, in fact, she couldn’t get on the phone with me because she was so emotional. I don’t know about you, but that was proof that this is probably the best birthday or Mother’s Day gift you can purchase for your favorite person.

We ordered ours in silver, but they’re also available in gold and rose gold. And with sizes ranging from XS to XXXL, you’re sure to find the perfect fit.

FYI: With Mother's Day only being weeks away (May 12!), you should definitely order now so it comes on time.

I should also mention that I made a mistake, and accidentally requested the wrong shipping address. Panicked, I reached out to Jenny, the shop owner who’s based in Texas. Within hours, she made the adjustment and even sped up the delivery process so it could arrive just in time for my mom’s big day. "Please do not worry," she wrote. I breathed the biggest sigh of relief (it's the little things, you know?).

From order to delivery, I cannot adequately express how smooth this was. So if you have something to say to your mom, or any loved one, you’ve gotta send it on this bracelet.
