Every year in the lead-up to Valentine’s Day, jewellery store attendants are swamped – helping men and women to find the perfect gift for their significant other. The problem is, there is no one size fits all approach to Valentine’s Day gift buying, which can make it harder and harder every year to come up with something your partner will like.
Unlike anniversaries, there are no milestones that dictate the gift to buy, so you have to use your discretion and rely on expert jeweller advice. Fortunately, this guide can help you on your mission to buy the perfect Valentine’s Day gift – be it next year or in the years to follow.
- Casual or a Gesture
The first thing to consider is how serious your relationship is. If you are new to the dating scene, you don’t want to go overboard with a diamond necklace or something that costs thousands of dollars. In that first year of a relationship, one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts you can buy is an affordable set of birthstone earrings or a personalized charm for their bracelet or necklace. The goal is to keep it casual and relaxed – especially when your relationship is fresh.
- Momentous Occasion
If you and your significant other have been together for many years, then you might be past the box of chocolates and a cheesy card stage. Instead, you might be thinking about long-term commitment and “sealing the deal” so to speak.
If you plan on popping the question this Valentine’s Day, then you are going to need a lot of help from a jewellery store attendant to pick out the perfect ring from the selection of engagement rings. Set yourself a budget, have an idea of ring size and create a Valentine’s Day you’ll never forget.
