My Favourite Family, Things I Love

REVIEW: Butler & Grace Custom ID Bracelets

Sometimes, my girls like to terrify me by running off and hiding – normally when we are in a supermarket or shopping centre. They seem to delight in my panic, and now they are growing up, I can’t just strap them into the buggy!

As we head towards holiday and festival season, we’ll be going out on more day trips to unfamiliar places, so I’ve been thinking about ways to keep them safer. Enter Butler and Grace, who design and make custom ID bracelets for adults and children. They made a pair of custom Pixie ID bracelets for the girls, with our phone numbers engraved on the inside*.

Pink Pixie MyBugle ID Bracelets

Thea and Ava love their bracelets, which secretly have our phone numbers engraved on them.

We chose the pretty pink version but there are loads of other options, including plenty that are suitable for boys. Ava and Thea are obsessed with ‘love hearts’, so I chose that for the outside of the stainless steel plaque. On the inside is ICE (In Case of Emergency) and both of our mobile numbers.

Our mobile numbers are engraved on the other side of the plaque.

We’ve told the girls that if they get lost, they should find another mummy or daddy, and show them the bracelet so they can call us to come and get them. We have also told them that its’s a secret, so they don’t just go and give our numbers to any Tom, Dick, or Harry!

The girls love the bracelets, and as long as they are wearing them, they’ll always have an emergency contact number available – much better than the marker pen we used to use on their arms, when we went to a festival! Because they look so pretty, and are real jewellery, the girls are really keen to wear them. Now that Ava is at an age where she gets invited to birthday parties where the parents don’t stay, it’s a bit of added peace of mind.

What’s really interesting about Butler & Grace bracelets and necklaces is that they can be customised to alert people about any medical needs you have, so you can have your medical alert on you at all times. Instead of the heart, you can have a medical icon, and instead of a phone number, you can have details of a medical condition, allergy… or anything else you want.

Our bracelets are £27.95, and because the cord is adjustable, they will fit them for years – the ends just slide along to make them smaller or larger. It actually fits me (though I do have tiny child’s hands), so it will definitely still fit them up to their teenage years.

Pull the ends of the cords to tighten the bracelet. It fits the girls and me!

Butler & Grace also do rubber wrist bands, which are a more purse-friendly option, especially for kids.

    What a fabulous idea! These would be perfect for my niece, we call her the flight risk. She is so fast and thinks it’s fun to run away all the time. I love that they look like a cute piece of jewellery too not so obvious as to what it is #kcacols

    These are a great idea!!! They don’t look like an id badge & look like a normal bracelet meaning they’re more likely to wear it

      Thank you, yes they love wearing them, so I imagine most kids would too. xx
