Valentine's Day is a great opportunity to show the people in your life just how much you love them. But how do you pick the perfect gift for that special someone? We're right there with you–wading through endless aisles of heart shaped candies, sifting through countless Valentine's Day promotional emails, and trying to decide which scented candle will truly sweep someone off their feet. We want to make Valentine's Day gift giving as easy as possible. Keep reading for sweet, stylish, and timeless Valentine's Day gift ideas.
There are a few symbols that are never missing from a Valentine’s Day jewelry collection; the heart, the word “love,” and roses. A jewelry piece that incorporates these symbols is fit for the occasion. However, make sure that the jewelry design is still suitable for any other day of the year that way it can be worn all year round.
So, how do you know if the jewelry can be worn on any occasion? Simply choose a jewelry piece where the heart, the word “love,” or rose is subtle. For example, a long gold chain with “love” in giant cursive is not subtle. A sideways pendant necklace with a rose or a bangle with “love” engraved is subtle.
Another way to decide whether the symbol is subtle is by asking yourself one question: is the symbol the overpowering focus of the jewelry piece or an interesting detail? If it is a detail then it is a Valentine's Day gift that is tasteful enough for other occasions.
We secretly enjoy coming to the office the next day to casually show our co-workers our shiny new bling. But, we don’t want to seem like we are showing off either. This is why a simple jewelry piece is the better Valentine's Day gift.
One way to stay stylish is by sticking to the metals. Silver and gold jewelry is classy yet special enough as a romantic gesture. You don’t have to break the bank either. A well crafted gold-plated pair of earrings is just as sweet.
If you do want to add extra sparkle to the metallics then go for clear stones or gemstones with soft colors. Give spiritual meaning to the Valentine's Day gift by picking out crystals and gemstones linked to love. Stones that represent love are rose quartz, moonstone, garnet, blue lace agate, and pearls.
Are you someone that gets nervous picking out a Valentine's Day gift? We understand the struggles of finding something they will love. On top of that, with Valentine’s Day there is the added pressure of getting a gift that is appropriate for your stage in the relationship. You don’t want to shock them with a diamond ring but you want the jewelry to show you care.
Look at the jewelry that they already wear daily or often. Then, choose a jewelry piece that complements the pieces she already loves to wear. For example, find drop earrings that match their favorite necklace or knuckle rings that emphasize the wedding band. This shopping trick works really well when you need a Valentine's Day gift for your bestie, wonder woman mother, or soulmate sister.
Valentine’s Day is also a great opportunity to show your friends how much you love them too. So, if Prince Charming has not arrived yet, celebrate Galentine's Day this year and exchange jewelry gifts with each other. Let’s be real, the girls know your style better than any man could.
The Valentine's Day gift guidelines above still apply. Choose a silver or gold jewelry piece that is simple, subtle and looks great with their favorite accessory. The only difference with a Galentine’s Day gift is that you can spoil yourself, as well. Galentine's Day receives bonus points for giving you the chance to get matching jewelry with your favorite gal pals.
Get creative when choosing a matching jewelry gift for your best friend. Find jewelry that works as individual pieces but are clearly meant to be together when shown next to each other. Keep each other’s own style by shopping for two complementary pieces rather than specific friendship jewelry. Show your connection with the same charm, rings with the same gemstone or split a stacked bracelet set together.
If you are getting a ring as a Valentine's Day gift, make sure to buy the right size. You can go through her jewelry box and note the size of the rings she is wearing. For other jewelry you don’t need to worry about size, but rather about her style. If she likes subtle earrings like studs and linear drop earrings, get a similarly subtle style. If you see her often wearing a statement necklace, keep your Valentine's Day gift in the same style. Of course, if you are getting big and bold jewelry, you still have to make sure the heart symbol is subtle. Trust us, nobody wants to wear an oversized link necklace featuring a cluster of shiny red hearts.
