How to: Pick the perfect present!

There’s something magical about Christmas, dark nights, twinkly lights, open fires and a festive season full of quality time with your loved ones. When choosing that something special for the one you love, be sure to pick something that will last, that will be full of memories for many Christmases to come, let your gift fill them with warm nostalgia every time they wear it. Jewellery is the perfect gift, full of sentiment, love and sparkle – just like Christmas!

If you’re looking for the perfect piece of jewellery for her this year, here are our top tips on getting it just right!

  1. Pay attention

Over the next few days note what jewellery she wears. Does she wear Silver, Gold or Rose Gold? Does she have a wrist full of bracelets, is she always wearing a necklace, or does she rarely wear any jewellery?

  1. Work out the size and scale

We can help you with this, but all you need to know is how tall she is and what size boobs she has. We say this because if you are buying a necklace it will help us to help you choose what length of chain to buy.

  1. What is her style?

Don’t worry we know this is a big question but we have loads of ways of helping you. From taking a quiz to just looking at photographs. Two or three photographs of your lovely lady should help us work out what kind of style she has, obviously your phone is fine, we don’t need print outs!

  1. Come armed

We can judge the size and scale, her style too but we’re never going to know your relationship. Come armed with some special dates, where you met, the best presents you’ve bought her in the past, the special people in her life. All of these things will help us come up with a romantic and sentimental present for her, for all the right reasons.

  1. Don’t be shy

We love jewellery and absolutely love the opportunity to talk about it. Don’t worry about asking us questions either in store, online or over the phone. It’s our passion and we’d love to get it just right for you.

  1. Don’t leave it too late

If you get too close to the big day you’re probably going to panic, spend twice as much and come away with something you haven’t put as much thought into because you’re in a rush. Put aside a day to have a good look around and a think. Shopping’s fun if you’re not under pressure (right?). At fabulous we extend our exchange policy so if you need to exchange anything you can do so up to 14 days after Christmas day so you don’t need to wait until closer to the day to buy.

  1. Get personal

This year there is a big trend for personalised pieces, from engraved necklaces to initials and birthstones, there are plenty of ways to make your gift personal. The majority of collections we select can be customised, so there’s always a way to add a personal touch. If you’re thinking of an engraveable item we can present her with what you wanted to have engraved if you’re not sure, then she can come back at a later date to have it completed.

  1. Spoil her

How about you pick up a little extra token to hand her as the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve! If you’ve bought a composeable item, like a Nikki Lissoni necklace, Alex and Ani stack, Cherish Locket or Engelsrufer pendant you could add an extra pendant, treasure, bangle or coin to bring in the New Year! (Her friends will be past themselves with jealousy at your foresight)

  1. Cheat

If she is really, really hard to buy for, request a catalogue (you can email christmas@fabulouscollections.co.uk for your copy). Let her circle things she likes and you can choose from her selection.

  1. Don’t worry

If you’ve put thought, time and effort into your gift she will be able to see that and she’ll love it and you for choosing it. It really is the thought that counts.
