  1. Consider their personality and fashion choices.

Everyone has a unique sense of fashion. Some people like large statement necklaces while others way jewelry that is more subdued. If you want to find the perfect gift for someone you care about, look at what they currently wear and understand their fashion personality. While you might have your eye on a specific piece, they might never wear that item.

Also, keep in mind the types of businesses they visit for their clothes and accessories. If they enjoy visiting local stores, look for jewelry at these locations. If they have a favorite brand, seek those items out. This increases the chances that they love your gift.

  1. Look for personalization opportunities.

If you want to find the perfect gift for someone, make it personal. For example, an initial necklace is unique to the person who is wearing it. The piece is made just for them. (This style is also referred to as a monogram necklace or letter necklace in some areas.)

There are other ways you can personalize the accessories you find the make sure they are perfect gifts. Look for the birthday gemstone for the recipient or find pieces that match their favorite colors. Each step towards personalization shows how well you know your loved one and how much thought you put into buying them the item.

If you can’t find something that uses initials, see if there are engraving opportunities so you can put a special date, message, Bible verse, or location on the item.

  1. Bring a friend to pick out the perfect gift.

Recently, men who are looking to propose have started reaching out to the best friends and sisters of their girlfriends for help picking out rings. While these boyfriends know their significant others well, it helps to have a second opinion when looking. The same can be said when buying any significant necklace or accessory as a gift.

If you aren’t sure about a particular piece, reach out to someone and ask what they think. This will make you feel more confident about your purchase and increase the chances that your recipient likes the piece.

If you still aren’t sure, ask the store about their return policy. You can always bring your close friend or loved one to the store to pick out a new piece themselves.

  1. Find the right time to give it.

A special gift needs a personalized and unique delivery. You might not want to give them the piece in front of their friends or in a public area. It’s hard for your significant other or dear friend to really look at the item and reflect on how much they like it.

Look for a private moment to give them this perfect gift. For example, you can present a bracelet to a significant other before you leave for a night out. This way they can wear the item throughout the night.

The presentation can convey how important your gift recipient is to you. It shows how much thought you put into the gift, from the initial purchase to its delivery.

Jewelry can be a perfect gift for someone you care deeply about. However, you need to keep the recipient’s needs in mind when you pick it out. You want to find something they will wear daily and reflects who they are. This makes the gift meaningful.
