Are you struggling to find the perfect gift for this Holiday season? Especially for your bestie/sister/aunt/mom/co-worker who's quirky and elegant? Don't worry, I've got you covered!
I know the pain of trying to find the perfect gift, both as the giver and as the receiver. It's tough to find something that's thoughtful, meaningful, and beautiful that she'll appreciate. (Hint: avoid super bouncy balls and cutesy key chains) So, I've scoured the inter-webs for the perfect gifts for jewelry lovers, side-hustlers, jet-setters, figure skaters, and more!
The Jewelry Lover
A jewelry designer talking about jewelry gift giving?! Shocker, I know. :p But in all seriousness, the Jewelry Lover in your life will adore receiving jewelry that fits her personality and style for the Holidays. The key is to pick out pretty pieces that fit her lifestyle(active, at the office, at home, etc.).
