We get it – Christmas is probably the last thing you want to hear about before the month of December. However, as the Edmonton jewellery experts at Boulevard Diamonds, we believe that Christmas gifts need to be chosen with care, consideration, and thought. That means starting your shopping a little earlier.
Beat the holiday rush, and check out our Top Jewellery Gift Ideas for both men and women:
Jewellery Gifts For Her
Christmas always begs the question, “What would she just love?” For a lot of women, that means a beautiful diamond ring. Now, before you start shopping for rings, you’ll have to decide what you want the ring to say.
Do you want it to say marry me? If you are already married, do you want a ring that says I will always cherish you? Or maybe you want it to say I love you, Mom. The type of ring you choose will depend on the recipient, as well as what you want the ring to say to that person.
Bracelets make a great all-around gift for women. You can get a bracelet for your mom, your aunt, your sister, or your girlfriend or wife. Simply consider their style and taste beforehand. The best way to do this is to try and sneak a peak at the jewellery they already have.
For instance, if your sister has a nice collection of bangles, you can be fairly certain that she likes bangles. Or, if your mom has a very classic collection of bracelets, you’ll know to find something understated, yet beautiful, rather than something more complex and intricate.
Pendants and Earrings
Pendants are another great go-to gift for Christmas because they are packed with meaning. Again, you can get a pendant and necklace for any special woman in your life. A beautiful heart-shaped pendant, says I love you to a girlfriend or wife. While, a pearl necklace might make more sense for your mother or aunt or even your grandmother.
Again, if you can, take a look at the recipient’s current collection. Maybe she already has a string of pearls to wear, or perhaps she favours small pendants with a delicate chain.
Earrings can be a gift in itself, such as diamond studs, or they can come as a set along with a matching pendant.
Charms are great for personalizing your Christmas gift. Even easier, if you happen to know that they already have a charm bracelet. This is a great gift for a woman who may be starting a new chapter inn her life, as a charm bracelet is a great way to show off who you are.
You can get charms to match virtually any personality, whether you want it to showcase their passion for golf, horses, or just a simple heart to say I love you, you can find a unique charm to match.
This Christmas you can give your special lady the gift of a rare gemstone like Ammolite. We carry sets of earrings as well as pendants that feature this stunning and colourful gem. The fact that it is nature’s rarest gem only makes it more special to the recipient.
Other gemstones make great gifts, especially if they happen to be the recipient’s birth stone. Or maybe it just happens to be their favourite colour. Either way, gemstones can add a little personality to your gift.
Jewellery Gifts For Him
For the man who has everything else, cufflinks make a great Christmas gift. Even more so because they can be customized or engraved. Cufflinks come in a multitude of sizes, styles, and shapes to ensure you match the taste of the special guy in your life.
Does he wear a suit everyday? Cufflinks are a great way to show off his personality while remaining professional.
Men always need more than one watch on hand to make the most of their wardrobe. Find out what style of time piece they might need to fill out their collection. Perhaps, he has many sport watches and no dress watches. Or maybe he’d really like a watch that does it all and that he can wear everyday.
Just like men have to do a little research on your jewellery tastes, so do women when it comes to picking out a man’s watch.
Buying a ring for a man can be almost as complicated as buying a woman’s ring. Just like when buying a man’s watch, you’ll want to consider their lifestyle as well as the style of any jewellery they may already have.
If the only ring your recipient happens to have is one that doubles as a beer opener, he may not be as receptive to a gold or diamond ring as another man might. The Tungsten, Titanium, or Cobalt rings are great alternatives to the traditional gold or silver band and look very modern.
Just like cufflinks, collar stiffeners can be personalized with an engraving, which makes it a great gift for someone who wears a suit frequently, and already has quite the collection of jewellery.
Depending on the special man in your life’s style, a bracelet might make the perfect gift. Bracelets are easily personalized with an engraving as well. You can even get a Tungsten bracelet to match his ring if you like. As with any gift of jewellery, you’ll want to consider his lifestyle and current tastes.
