No matter who you're shopping for, finding the perfect gift can be a challenge. Jewelry can be a good choice for anyone and any gift budget — but jewelry is also easy to go wrong with. Whether you're shopping for a woman's necklace or a men's watch, we'll give you some pointers to help find the perfect jewelry gift without busting your budget.
Step 1: Consider the Jewelry and Accessories They Wear
The first thing to consider on your quest to the perfect gift is the personal style of the person you're giving the gift to. If they wear jewelry, take time to pay attention to what you see them wearing — chances are you'll notice they prefer certain types, styles, or colors. If you see them wearing different pieces every day, a new piece of jewelry might fit perfectly into their wardrobe accessories, but if they favor wearing a particular piece on most days, they may not be interested in swapping it out for something new.
When you're shopping for jewelry, look for styles and colors similar to things you've already seen them wearing — so don't buy something gold if you've only seen them wear silver or pick up a vintage piece if they prefer modern styles.
Step 2: Pick a Jewelry Type
Before you go shopping, you'll probably want to decide just what kind of jewelry to pick up — which is another step where observation comes in handy. While both jewelry and watches can be a worn by both women and men, if you're getting a gift for someone you've never seen wearing a piece of jewelry, it might be time to reconsider your gift choice.
However, if you often see them wearing necklaces or bracelets, picking up a new addition to their accessories collection is sure to be a hit.
Step 3: Set Your Budget
You can spend as much or as little as you want on jewelry, so take time to consider how much you want to spend before you break out your credit card. Even the tiniest budgets can find fun fashion accessories for gifting — just don't expect (or shop for) diamond encrusted.
Some items, like necklaces, are one size fits all — but other items will require a good fit. If you're looking at anything that's fitted — rings are a common culprit, but necklaces, bracelets, and watches can all have a close fit, too — be sure you know the right size. This can be tricky when you don't want your gift recipient catching on, but if you can't be sure on the sizing, you may want to consider a different gift. No one likes jewelry that doesn't fit!
Whatever you’re buying — and whoever you’re buying it for — these simple steps should help you narrow your choices to the right one. Good luck!
