With the Christmas season fast approaching, it’s almost time to indulge in those festive traditions. This means trimming the tree, feasting on seasonal favourites and of course, Christmas shopping. But just what should you buy for your loved ones this year?
If you’re looking for something special, jewellery makes a truly sentimental present. In fact, if you choose the right piece, it will be something that your loved one can treasure for years to come, meaning it’s a gift that keeps on giving.
In this blog post, we’ve put together the ultimate Christmas gift guide to help you find the perfect piece of jewellery.
CONSIDER THEIR PERSONALITY
Regardless of your budget or the type of jewellery you’re looking to buy, there’s one crucial thing to consider when you’re buying a piece for someone else: their personality. This is important because everyone has their own unique tastes and this will influence the style of jewellery that you buy.
The easiest way to find out what they like is by thinking about the sort of styles they tend to wear. For example, if you’re looking at ladies’ jewellery, does she tend to select modern statement pieces or prefer a traditional pieces? And when it comes to finding jewellery for men, does he usually choose a subtle luxury or a heavy gold chain?
Clothes and accessories are often an extension of our personalities, allowing us to show the world who we are. So, thinking about their taste and choosing a piece of jewellery that reflects your loved one’s sense of style will help you get it right this Christmas.
SNEAK A PEEK AT THEIR WISH LIST
Buying jewellery that you know someone wants is guaranteed to please. After all, if you’re picking a piece that a loved one has chosen themselves, there’s no need to worry about whether they’ll like it or not! To find out what they want, you could look through their Christmas wish list or sneak a peek at their browser bookmarks. If this is not an option, there are other methods you can use too.
While you could always ask them directly, this isn’t ideal if you’re hoping to surprise them on Christmas morning. Instead, see how they react to certain adverts, listen out for subtle hints, or try speaking with their friends and family to see if they have any insights. Alternatively, you could pretend that you’re buying jewellery for someone else and ask for their opinion.
PICK THE PERFECT METAL
When it comes to metal, most people have a personal preference between yellow and silver tones. As such, some people will always go for gold jewellery, whilst others will opt for silver.
To figure out what style of metal your loved ones like, just think about what metals they normally wear – a quick peak in their jewellery box or rummage through their accessories should give you the answer. It’s also important to consider maintenance when selecting metal. For example, yellow gold needs regular polishing to keep it shiny.
GET IT ENGRAVED
If you really want to get personal this Christmas, then consider an engraved piece of jewellery. Whether a bracelet or a necklace, adding a personal message is a surefire way to make your Christmas present more heartfelt. After all, what could make a piece more unique than having it personalised?
Depending on how much space there is, you could add anything from a date or initials, to a name or a quote, or even constellations and coordinates. If you decide to opt for an engraving, make sure you plan this in advance, especially if you’re buying online because this will add extra time to your order.
GIFT A SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
Alternatively, if you’re worried about getting it wrong or think that your loved one would prefer to pick out a piece themselves, then why not look together? Plan a post-Christmas day out where you browse jewellery stores and enjoy lunch at their favourite restaurant. This would allow you to make Christmas memories while also ensuring they find the jewellery they love.
Luckily Queens and Collections have dealers throughout the country where you can pop in and shop for your favourite pieces.
Alternatively, you could do this before Christmas by browsing together online and ordering in advance, so they’ll have a gorgeous gift waiting for them under the tree.
