Celebrating Christmas this year is different. The pandemic makes it impossible to have big parties with a lot of people come together. It is as it is and we have to deal with it this year. Exchanging gifts on Christmas Eve will be different too, I guess. More private, more intimate, more personal. The more reason to give presents with a personal touch. A personal gift will be remembered and treasured. But how can you choose the best personal gift for Christmas?
Tips to find the best personal gift
In my opinion, there are three ways to get that special personal gift:
- Buy a personalized necklace or bracelet with the name of your best friend/family member
- Buy a piece of jewelry with the birthstone of your best friend/family member
- Make a great piece of jewelry for her yourself
A great personal gift, personalized jewelry
You can buy a necklace or bracelet with the name of your best friend/family member in many shops. Be sure you spell the name the right way since it is awkward when your friend/family member wears a piece of personalized jewelry with the wrong spelling. And she feels obliged to wear it.
Then be sure that your friend likes to walk around with a piece of jewelry with her name on it. To be honest, I don’t. My name (Florence) is a bit long and a necklace with my name will get too wide for my neck. And I like to tell my name to the person myself. But that’s just my opinion. So be sure that your friend appreciates a piece of jewelry like this.
When you really want to give your friend this kind of personal gift, you can give her:
- A ring with her or your and her name inside
- A charm with her or your and her name at the backside
- A kind of locket (as a charm) that you open and engrave names in there. Or put a picture in it.
Jewelry with the birthstone of your best friend
A more subtle but very appreciated style of personalized jewelry and a personal gift is finding out what is the birthstone of your friend or a family member and give her a piece of jewelry with her birthstone. FlorenceJewelshop has written an e-book with all the birthstones, so you can easily find out which birthstone you have to look for. Besides: it is a free e-book, just click on the link (left).
Birthstones are gemstones and every month of the year has another stone (and sometimes more than one). Giving a present with a birthstone show your friend that you take a lot of trouble finding the best personal gift for her, you can find. And you have a lot of options, like your friend’s birthstone set in a ring, a necklace, bracelet, earrings, or even a brooch. You can find a lot of examples in FlorenceJewelshop.
Jewelry specially made for your friend
Your friendship is unique, your friend, your family member is unique, so you give her a unique piece of jewelry. A jewel that is made according to her taste. A jewel that is not duplicated but is one of a kind. You can make it yourself or ask FlorenceJewelshop to make a custom order for you. Or you try to find a shop that does not sell mass-production jewelry (like FlorenceJewelshop) and look around there.
Your friend is special, is unique, is one of a kind. She is important to you and with her your secrets are safe. Together you share a lot of memories and history. Isn’t she worth the trouble finding her a personal gift, that is specially made for her, a piece of jewelry that nobody else in the world wears, except she?
