Even in normal years buying the perfect Valentine’s gift is a daunting task. It’s got to be something that’s romantic, represents your relationship and shows your significant other how much you care. No pressure then.
And with Valetine’s day gift ideas considerably reduced for 2021 (sadly there’ll be no weekends away or romantic meals out this time), the task of finding the perfect pressie is even harder.
But don’t go reaching for the supermarket flowers or cheap chocolates just yet. Not when you could spoil your partner with a piece of timeless jewellery that will brighten an otherwise dull start to the year and be something they can treasure forever. Here’s our ultimate guide to help you find the piece that will make their heart melt.
Make sure you understand your partner’s tastes.
Everyone has their own style when it comes to jewellery so it’s important you understand your partner’s before you commit to a gift. You don’t want to go buying them something gold when the rest of their collection is silver. You especially don’t want to buy them something which is going to irritate them if they have sensitive skin. Make sure you choose a hypoallergenic option instead if this is the case.
Take a mental note of your partner’s jewellery choices when they’re getting ready. Do they prefer stud earrings or hoops? Sparkles or minimalism? When you’ve got a good idea, you’ll be ready to browse more confidently and be able to spot the ideal piece when you see it. If you’re still struggling, then try asking friends and relatives for their opinion too.
Decide if you’re going 'heart’ shaped or not.
As part of finding out about your partner’s tastes, you should have got an idea of how traditional you want to go with your romantic jewellery. For a lot of people, it wouldn’t be valentine's day without something heart-shaped. Luckily, we’ve got plenty of options to choose from including nose studs for an edgy take on this classic.
But hearts aren’t for everyone and it’s more important you choose something that you know your partner will love. If that means something bold like leopard print then go for it! We also have a full range of coloured SWARVOSKI crystal earrings so you can choose your partner’s favourite or match them to their birthstone.
Presentation is key
Once you’ve found the perfect gift, you need to make sure you get the presentation just right. You might want to include a handwritten letter that lists the reasons your partner brightens your day. Or you could try and add to the surprise by wrapping your jewellery in a misleadingly large box so they can’t guess what it is beforehand.
At Solace, all our jewellery comes in beautiful packaging with the option to add a personalised gift card. You can also choose to have your earrings sent in one of our high-quality jewellery boxes for that extra special touch.
