Christmas is just two weeks away. If all the shopping isn’t done, it’s time to start panicking. For the record, I have only bought two presents and they barely count as stocking fillers for my nearest and dearest.
If you’re in need of ideas, look no further!
Men buying for women always seem to get it wrong. Men never manage to find the right balance between frivolity and utterly ludicrous. They either go for something they’d like themselves, like a tool set, or something they think a woman would enjoy, like a ladyshave. Men, you need help!
I’ve recently stumbled upon the thought that possibly one of the most perfect presents for a woman, could just be a charm for a bracelet. What’s not to like? Provided the woman already has the bracelet, charms can be given for birthdays and Christmases, and every momentous life milestone over the years. The bracelet can be added to and can build into a beautiful scrapbook of memories to carry around on the wrist.
They are so easy to find, too. Any highstreet jeweller will have them, and you can find them in lots of places online. One key trick is finding charms which are a little bit special, a bit more unusual than the bog-standard, generic ones which can be seen in every shop window in the country. This is the beauty of looking online. Here are some particularly “different” ones I managed to find….
The prices vary widely, so you can find something to suit your budget and the occasion. The charms range in style, too. You can find real diamond letters of the alphabet, for the personal touch, and flags for the patriotic, for around $39.
This key charm is only $3.99
I love this Cameo charm, at $89.95
Here’s what they say….
