We know the financial Christmas dilemma all too well … at Gilletts, we are certainly not immune from the holiday gift quandary! You know that ‘it is the thought that counts’ in a Christmas gift, and you also know very well what your credit card balance is going to look like in January. However, you also feel that the impression people get of your feelings for them will be linked to the quality of your Christmas gift. Since you don’t want anybody to think that you don’t care about them … what can you do?!! Luckily, although we face the same dilemma as everybody else, we also have some fantastically unique answers. Jewellery is never perceived as a cheap or throwaway gift … but that certainly doesn’t mean that you have to spend a lot of money on it! Today we check out some Christmas jewellery gifts for women and jewellery gifts for men that will definitely tell your recipients how much you feel for them, without breaking your bank.
Elegant and Affordable Christmas Gifts for Girls
We’ve tracked down some of the newest and hottest jewellery gifts for women that are either very cheap, or represent excellent value for money.
Pandora 2010 Christmas Compose Earrings Set: Earrings are a ’safe’ and quite sentimental gift for any girl – one of the jewellery types that gets the most show -off points . This Pandora Jewellery Christmas 2010 Compose earrings set isn’t the cheapest gift in the set, but don’t forget that because of the Mix n Match earring hooks, you are actually buying two pairs of earrings … plus the ability to create a whole universe worth of other earrings at much lower cost.
Pandora Happy Buddha Charm: All the Pandora silver charms make for fantastic, sentimental, great quality and inexpensive Christmas gifts. The Happy Buddha is just one that might be suitable for people who are feeling a little left out amongst all the religious themes.
Pandora Baby Elephant Charm: Like the Happy Buddha charm, the Baby elephant charm enjoys the lowest pricing in the Pandora charm selection, is a Top Seller, and has plenty of stock available for Christmas!
Pandora Black Cotton String and Silver Bracelet/Necklace: Don’t skip over those temptingly priced and very sweet Pandora charms because you think it’ll be too expensive to start a bracelet for a special girl this Christmas! In the last 3 months Pandora brought out a selection of neat silver-ended string bracelets that can be wrapped up lariat-style and actually look very casual and stylish. Grab a string bracelet so she can enjoy her charms this Christmas, and you can think about upgrading the base bracelet for a birthday!
New Heart Pearl Pendant: These are sweet, feminine and so easy to wear with just about anything … and at just under $40 for 2010, they are also very easy on the wallet! Pendants are 1.8cm high, made of sterling silver and features a fresh water pearl.
Garnet Heart Pendant: This level of gift is fantastic for starting out a jewellery collection for a teenage daughter, making a romantic ending to the year with a new girlfriend, or even making a sister or cousin feel special! The heart cut 0.59ct garnet is set on 9ct white gold, in a pendant measuring 14mm top to bottom.
2.5mm Peridot White Gold Earrings: White gold is actually quite an affordable alternative to those who tend to turn sterling silver black. These gorgeous peridot white gold earrings are guaranteed many months of wear as a sweet everyday basic piece of jewellery.
Elegant and Affordable Men’s Jewellery Gifts
Men’s jewellery tends to have quite a clean and simple look by design … and that means that it is also a very affordable Christmas gift! Here are some great picks:
Inori Men’s 55cm Chain: The large link design of this chain means that it doesn’t need a pendant to look good. A great introduction to jewellery in general, for guys that are ready to branch out with their look.
Zoppini Red Avatar LED Watch: For the urban man who is looking for clean contemporary style with a bit of a twist, the entire Zoppini watch and jewellery range holds a lot of promise! This is one of their best value and least expensive pieces.
Men’s Black Stripe Cufflinks: The casual look of these black stripe cufflinks help dampen down the stiff formality of work uniforms that come in three pieces … great for non-nonsense guys that spend a lot of time office-bound.
Once you start looking through the collection, it is amazing how many great men’s jewellery gifts and women’s jewellery gifts are available for under $100, under $75 … even under $50! And unlike many of the knick-knacks available at this price, these will last forever. Order fast, and you’ll have yours by Christmas!
