Christmas gift guide for wife or girlfriend

The Wonders of Christmas

With BER months fast-approaching, Christmas is right around the corner.

If you are not Grinch, then you would surely enjoy the food binge passes and spend quality time with friends and relatives.

The chill weather makes Christmas one of the best seasons.

However, Christmas is not all fun and games.  

Best gift for your wife

The Dilemma

Christmas is the time of giving, and as self-proclaimed thoughtful persons, we need to find the right gift for our special someone.

Buying a gift is challenging and daunting as it is.

However, finding the right one for your woman is a next-level kind of puzzle.

Regardless of the event, season, or occasion, from the most awaited wedding or couple anniversary to her birthday, she will remember your gift or the lack thereof.

Random surprises to cheer her up or a special congratulatory gift will tell her how suitable you are for her.

So brace yourself, and make this Christmas gift count.

Lucky for you, we are here to guide you in finding the perfect gift this Christmas season.

The best and a time-withstanding key to her heart is (drum roll, please) jewelry.

Yes, it has not changed.

From time immemorial to modern times, hearts flutter with the sight of jewelry.

Yes, some women prefer other gifts, but each one of them deserves jewelry.

As shoes and cars are for men, jewelry is for women.

They just fit together like Cinderella and her glass shoes, like peanut butter and jelly, or chicken and gravy.  

Hold your Horses

So you thought any jewelry would do?

Oh boy, you are one poor soul.

Jewelry is tricky territory, and we don’t want you running around making a fool of yourself with half-pretty jewelry.

In this guidebook, we will be sharing the comprehensive list of what you should note and understand when looking for the perfect jewelry for your girlfriend or wife before she treats you like Grinch.

I. ESTABLISH A BUDGET

If you are not Bezos, then you need a budget.

A budget prevents you from overspending and helps you focus on a range of choices.

Looking for jewelry with a specific budget in mind makes the quest significantly easier.

Regardless if you prefer online or physical stores, a price range cuts the effort of going through every listed item.

It can also be disappointing to like an item and find out you cannot afford it.

Instead, focus on the condensed roster of the most beautiful jewelry under your favored bracket.

We will not discriminate here.

Regardless of your economic status, we shall help you get the best out of your buying power.

For starters, set the highest price you can spend for your sweetheart.

For your convenience, we categorized the budget allotments into four: on a budget, reserved, all-star, and high roller.

Whatever money you have in your bank, this guidebook will land you a spot in her heart.

Christmas will be warm and cozy.

1.1 ON A BUDGET

If you are looking for jewelry below the one-hundred-fifty dollar range, then you should read the following advice with enthusiasm.

As a man with little experience with jewelry, you might think that any jewelry under 150 USD is trash.

Well, scratch that idea and welcome to the world of affordable yet fancy jewelry.

Companies like Pandora and Evermée produce quality jewelry at affordable prices.

You can see that Pandora’s bracelet and earrings suit contemporary taste while offering hand-finished high quality.

However, if you do not want to be among the millions of guys who defaulted to Pandora, then you can always check Evermée.

It is a promising company that offers digital lockets.

Yes, you heard that right, digital.

They are lockets that show pictures on her smartphone when she scans her locket pendant! Now, that’s a modern secret!

1.2 RESERVED

If you do have a bit more money to spare for your girl, then consider yourself reserved.

Men within this category have about 150 to 300 USD to spend for a piece of jewelry as a Christmas gift.

We have mentioned that Evermée offers a budget-friendly digital locket.

However, they also have a premium jewelry line that guarantees extra drizzles of fanciness.

We recommend being friendly with your dealer.

Through this, you can view the best selections if you are shopping in a physical store.

If you are searching online, you can always conduct more research, but we are pretty sure this guidebook will already give you whatever you need.

1.3 ALL-STAR

If you intend to spend about 300 to 500 USD for your Christmas gift, then you are part of the All-Star division.

Companies like Auvere and Susan Highsmith have offerings that suit people with this budget.

As not all budget-friendly jewelry are trashy, not every pricey jewelry is pretty.

Auvere has bracelets like the Small Cage bracelet that would be perfect for the minimalists.

You can also opt to buy a diamond ring necklace from Susan Highsmith diamond if you wish to maximize your budget.

Then again, you can’t limit yourself to these specific options. You can always check their website for more choices. It is all up to you.  

1.4 HIGH ROLLER

Alright, you have more than five hundred dollars to spend for her.

Well, as we were saying, money cannot buy taste.

As a high-roller, you should be careful of overly priced jewelry that she will not even appreciate.

You can choose from any jewelry shop and buy what you think speaks to you and reflects her personality.

May it be Pandora, Evermée, Bvlgari, or Tiffany and Co., it does not matter. The sky is indeed the limit.  

II. QUALITY

Jewelry is not entirely about silver, gold, or diamond.

They each have their grade.

Have you ever wondered what the number 925 in silvers meant?

You may know that K stands for Karat or Carat, but is higher better?

Well, this guidebook will discuss these so you wouldn't have to worry.  

2.1 SILVER

For silver jewelry, there are usually decimal engravings on the jewelry itself.

When it comes to silver, you want to make sure that you're getting sterling silver.

What is sterling silver, you ask?

Sterling silvers are those with a .925 engraving, which means the jewelry has 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloy or other metal materials.

The higher the grade on your sterling, the higher is the silver ratio.  

2.2 GOLD

If you and your best friend happen to love wearing rings, then I have the perfect friendship jewelry for both of you.

A bold double number ring is a 10k gold ring that allows you to personalize the number on it.

This ring is perfect if you want to put the year when you and your best friend met.

You can also choose each other's birth date.

Moreover, this bold double number ring also features a vintage design, which adds an aesthetic vibe to you and your best friend’s outfit. 

2.3 DIAMOND

When eyeing diamond jewelry, you have to look for four Cs: Carat, Clarity, Color, and Cut.

Perhaps, this is why there are designated diamond experts.  

2.3.a Carat

Do not be confused with a Diamond Carat with gold Karat.

In diamonds, carat is the weight of the diamond stone.

One carat is equal to 200mg.

It is rare to find intact and huge diamonds, so their value is higher.

Well, while some women brag about their diamond carats, some want small and elegant diamonds.

Then again, you still have to keep in mind the other Cs.

2.3.b Color

Jewelers measure diamond colors using the D to Z scale.

D diamonds have no hues or tints, while Z diamonds have yellow or brown shades.

Between the two, D diamonds have a higher value.

To a romantic boy with no idea about diamonds, all diamonds may look the same.

However, to a trained eye, and possibly you after reading this guidebook, some diamonds are more precious than others.

When in doubt, have a professional inspect a diamond.

2.3.c Clarity

We have to keep in mind that diamonds are not the product of factories.

Instead, miners obtain them and polish them to the best of their ability. Hence, no diamond is perfect.

There are flawless diamonds (FL), internally flawless diamonds (IF), very, very slightly included diamonds (VVS), very slightly included diamonds (VS), slightly included diamonds (SI), and included diamonds.

Yes, that is a lot, but we will get through this.

Inclusions are flaws inside a diamond upon inspection.

FL diamonds have no visible inclusions and external blemishes even when one uses a 10X magnification.

On the other hand, IF diamonds have no inclusions under 10X magnification.

VVS has trivial inclusions, while VS have minor inclusions.

SI has noticeable inclusions, while Included diamonds have visible inclusions.

Again, experts can verify the grade and how much a diamond should cost.  

2.3.d Cut

The final C is the cut.

A cut dictates the proportion and brilliance of the final product.

Women also have different preferences when it comes to diamond cuts.  

III. STORE REPUTATION

Can't you buy from a sketchy shop on the corner of nowhere?

Of course, not!

Store reputation matters because this implies the quality you may get.

Jewelry also has dupes and fakes, so be sure to buy from a store with a trusted reputation.

With a single click, you can read consumer reviews and expert ratings about jewelry stores.

Do they ship on time and handle orders with care?

Will they give you a discount on cleaning services?

Are their prices reasonable?

Lastly, do they offer jewelry insurance?

Like luxury bags or cars, jewelry is not cheap.

Every dollar counts, and each dollar is hard-earned.

Do not let impulse decisions influence your finances.  

IV. KNOW YOUR GIRLFRIEND'S TASTE

Before buying your girlfriend a gift, you must make sure to know what she likes.

Do not go buying a bold gold necklace that she will not use anyway.

Whatever her taste is, you must know it!

From what she loves down to what she hates, you need the details.

Unless you want your girlfriend to cringe at the sight of your gift, then get her whatever.

This step will save you both time and effort.

You do not want your girlfriend or wife to ask for the receipt to return the gift.

This step is handy and essential because you get the chance to sprinkle love on top of your present.

For sure, you will make her feel special and loved because you know what her fashion taste is when it comes to jewelry.

Of course, do not ask her straight up what she wants.

Let this be a surprise.

You can, however, consult her friends or family for safe measures.

Remember, tiny details are everything!  

V.  HOW TO ADD A PERSONAL TOUCH TO YOUR CHRISTMAS GIFT

Now that you know how to shop smart for jewelry without compromising being broke, scrutinize jewelry, and choose a reputable shop, you are in the final stages of becoming a certified jewelry connoisseur.

As a special gift, you should know how to add your personal touch to your present.

Engrave Both of Your Initials on the Jewelry’ Pendant.

Remember the good old days when couples tend to go someplace where a big old oak tree stands and engrave their initials to show how much they love each other?

Of course, you remember!

In this age, many frowns upon this old practice.

Environmentally, it is illegal.

Well, lucky for you, you can emulate the same tradition by engraving both of your initials on a jewelry pendant!

Yes, save the trees if you can.

A piece of engraved jewelry is also highly personal.

Your girlfriend or wife cannot re-gift it, nor forget that it came from you.

Cheesy as it may sound, but trust me, it’s a sweet gesture.

Made to Order

In-store jewelry is a no-no?

Well, as a comprehensive guidebook, we will share a little secret.

Many jewelry shops offer made-to-order jewelry.

What better way to add a personal touch to your gift than getting a one of a kind jewelry?

If you want to impress your woman with a gift that screams “made-especially-for-you” and “you’re-one-in-a-million,” then purchasing a made to order jewelry is the best choice.

Exclusivity

Do not listen to people who tell you that giving jewelry is out-dated or a cliché.

Depending on how you execute your gift-giving, jewelry as gifts is timeless.

If you want to stray away from the usual, make sure that the jewelry you purchase has exclusive features.

Let it be a gift that no one else has or a piece of jewelry that levels away from the norm.

Now that you know what to get her, ride your noble steed as a mighty knight in shining armor.

Save Christmas and defeat the Grinch.



So, there you have it!

I hope you had a fun and enlightening experience with this extensive guidebook.

Jewelry as a Christmas gift for your girlfriend is one of the best presents you could ever give her.

As I had mentioned earlier, the hearts of women flutter when they receive jewelry.

Before this guide ends and you focus on your mission, always bear in mind that no matter what jewelry you give to your girlfriend, always make sure that it reflects her personality.

Anyone can buy her jewelry, but only you can express love through them.

Money is not a measure of your love.

What defines your utmost admiration is the effort you place in the details.
