January babies have a pretty rough deal. With friends either feeling the pinch after Christmas or embracing a newfound healthy lifestyle, their celebrations can be pretty tame compared to those born in the fun-loving spring or carefree summer. That, coupled with years of joint Christmas and birthday presents, can lead to many writing their birthdays off altogether. But we say it’s time that changed! Remind your loved one that their birthday is still as special as they are with one of these unique (and affordable!) January gift ideas.
A Personalised Calendar
For the present buyer, a January birthday has many great advantages. One of which is that you can still buy presents that are designed to be used throughout the year without it seeming too late. And you can often get them at a discount too! We’re talking things like dairies, planners and the ever-popular calendar. But how do you turn a humble calendar into a truly unique gift? By using your own photos for each month of course! That way your loved one will think of you every time they turn the page throughout the year.
A Subscription Box
Signing up to a subscription box on behalf of your loved one is another gift that keeps on giving all year round. This is a trend that’s really taken off in recent years so there’s tons of different options for you to choose from. From cosmetic boxes to cheese selections, wellbeing packs to bakery boxes, you’re sure to find something to suit their tastes and interests.
A Weekend Away
This idea might be a bit pricier than the other items on the list, but you can still get some cracking deals on hotels, restaurants and spas in January as places look to fill up spaces during hospitality’s quietest month. And some booking websites will even allow you to reserve your room and travel now but pay when you arrive. Which means you can delay your spending until after payday and the happy recipient has something to look forward to. Win win!
A Special Piece of Jewellery
Of course, the best way to make a January birthday really special is by gifting a piece of jewellery they’ll cherish forever. You could go for something timeless like a pair of sparkly stud earrings. From our Open Heart CZ Hypoallergenic Earrings to our selection of more alternative CZ stainless steel cartilage studs, we have plenty of different designs and styles to choose from. Or else you could choose a piece which incorporates January’s birthstone: garnet.
Garnet is a fiery crystal and represents passion, creativity, and strength. Things that we could all do with a bit of at the start of the new year. The only downside to garnet is its hefty price tag. But luckily our range of coloured Swarovski crystal allergy free earrings includes a beautiful siam colour making them an affordable yet quality alternative.
