All That Glitters is Gold - 5 Shiny Gifts to Give


Looking for the perfect gift for your significant other? Think about these awesome ones...

When searching for a gift for the special someone, few things equal a dazzling sparkle or a brilliant shine. Getting a gift that shines can be a pleasant surprise but picking out the perfect one can be little more tricky than you think. Whether it's for him or for her, you can't go wrong with right kind of bling!

Precious Metals

The simple platinum band, silver bracelet, or gold pendant are always classic and well received gifts. While platinum and gold are usually the go to for jewelery, remember that sterling silver is the brightest of all the precious metals and is also a popular choice, especially as the price of gold rises. It is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals such as copper, which are what actually cause the tarnishing that can occur. Don't let that cause you to shy away, however. Just a bit of care and cleaning is all it takes to have sterling silver looking as beautiful as platinum at a much more affordable price.


Whether it's a Baccarat goblet for $180 or an crystal lotus flower for under $20, crystal is a great “just because” gift. It's affordable for most any budget and the possibilities are endless. How about crystal flutes and a bottle of bubbly for a job promotion congratulatory gift? Be creative and you will be sure to light up your significant others' face with joy.


A very nice idea is a jeweled trinket box in the form of something your significant other has a passion for. Sea turtles, dragons, any number of things are represented in pretty jeweled and enameled pieces. Whatever it's made of, we all need something to put special little things in, so why not have it as beautiful as it's contents?


There is something timeless about a diamond. Anything from a princess cut champagne diamond ring to a pair of round white diamond earrings, it's the perfect gift. Men also enjoy diamonds, so have a good look at the many ring styles available for men, and don't forget the single diamond stud earring for him as well. These and many more gifts can be picked up right at for your gift giving convenience.

Out of The Box

Make sure to listen when your loved one is talking about what they may want for future gifts. Often times in casual conversation they will mention wishing they had such and such item and you can make a note on your phone to remind you to pick it up later for a surprise gift. They will be sure to love it and the gesture for paying attention to them.

Gift giving to the one you love doesn't have to be stressful or difficult. Pay attention to what they like, what makes them smile or laugh, what makes them feel good. Knowing these things will give you all the information you need to find the perfect gift.
