When it comes to shopping for the perfect Christmas gift for that special someone in your life, it can be tricky to make the right choice.
I’ve always loved the process of finding the perfect gift for someone, and today I’m sharing my top three tips for getting it right…
1: Choose Quality over Quantity
Rather than buying a number of smaller items that you’re unsure about, why not chose one special item that you know the person will love. This could be an experience-based present such as concert tickets or a restaurant voucher, or even an investment watch or a classic piece of jewellery Either way, opting for a singular gift that has more sentimental value its always better than buying lots of things for the sake of it. Thomas Sabo have launched a new collection of fashion-focused diamond jewellery thats extremely affordable, so it’s now easier than ever to chose that special gift that someone will cherish forever.
2: Show them you know their style
Jewellery is always a popular choice when it comes to the loved ones in your life, but being the magpies that we are, we can often end up choosing the colours and finishes that we are drawn to, rather than taking our loved one’s personal style into account. So whether it’s your mother, sister or bestie your buying for, try to think about their personal style. Do they love to wear silver, gold or (my personal favourite) rose gold? Are they that bit more understated with their jewellery choices, or do they love to add a little sparkle? Take some time to think about what they actually wear, and you’re sure to make the right choice.
3: Make it personal
And finally, one of my greatest tips for buying jewellery for someone (or buying gifts in general!) is to personalise it with an engraving. This not only makes it one of a kind, but marks the occasion and creates a little moment that can be treasured forever. Thomas Sabo offer a range of different engraveable jewellery, from rings to bracelets and even pendants, and what’s more is that the service is complimentary with your purchase. Not too sure what to get engraved? Here are some examples of engravings that are sure to impress:
- The persons name or initials
- The date on which you met
- A lyric from their favourite song (extra brownie points if you know this one)
- A traditional saying (I love ones written in Irish or French )
- An inside joke (just keep it PG, as they’ll be wearing it in public!)
- A power word or affirmation such as love, peace, unity, ect.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Thomas Sabo on many of different projects during my blog’s lifetime, and I have amassed my own little collection of engraved bracelets over the years, a few of my favourites I’ve shared in this post today. I have “Live Your Dreams” in French, the phrase “Forever and Always” in Irish, and also my #CODtravels hashtag, which I got engraved when I traveled to Munich with the brand last year for one of their events. So whenever anyone askes me about buying a special gift for someone, I always find myself coming back to Thomas Sabo, as their jewellery is not only extremely fashionable, but you’re giving someone that bit of luxury for a more affordable price, what could be more perfect?!
