The holidays are right around the corner, and you know what that means? Holiday shopping is looming overhead. Finding the perfect gift for your loved ones can be a bit of a hassle and finding the perfect gift for your significant other can be just plain difficult. The one gift that says “I love you” above all others is jewelry, here is your guide for finding the perfect jewelry for your sweetheart this holiday season:
Does your significant other like gold? Or silver? Do they wear lots of bracelets? Are their ears pierced? The worst thing you can do is get a gift that they aren’t going to like or appreciate. You can avoid this by planning ahead and carefully noting what they do and do not like.
Find a Credible Store
The hard part about jewelry is that there is a fine line between beautiful and elegant, and tacky and gaudy. Make sure that you are finding good, credible stores with great reviews, especially when it comes to shopping online. A bracelet may look beautiful in a photo and hideous in person once it arrives. Make sure that you are finding good places to shop that will give you high quality jewelry that your beaux will be head over heels for.
The best part of any gift is the sentimental value that it represents between you and the other person. Is there an inside joke or a special memory that you can incorporate into the piece somehow? Can you engrave the inside with a special saying or a date that means a lot to the two of you? The more personal that you can make this piece, the bigger a hit it will be overall as a gift. It’s time to put your thinking cap on and walk down memory lane to see what kind of personal ties you can throw into this present. The more creative you’ll get, the better off you’ll be and the more success the gift will have.
Local jewelry will have more flare and personality than commercial brands. If you are in the San Diego area, there are many great places to start. Look for mom and pop shops that are more likely to put love and thought into each of their pieces. This customized touch will make the jewelry even more special.
Get Some Inspiration
Going in blind to a jewelry buying session can be daunting, so before you go in guns blazing, make sure to shop around. The more pieces you look at and compare, the better of an idea you will have about what you want to get. Pinterest, Instagram, and fashion blogs are all a great place to start when it comes to gathering ideas and inspiration. You may want to start a Google Doc or folder in your phone of possible ideas on what to get. Follow these tips to find a piece of jewelry that your significant other will fall head over heels for this holiday season!
