Of all gifts imaginable, jewelry items are among the most iconic ones. Be it a huge diamond ring or a simple silver bracelet, they all convey the precious desire to make our loved ones even more beautiful than they already are.
Maybe that's why there are no universal recommendations on gifting jewelry: as long as you put your heart into the matter, most likely your gift will be a success no matter what exactly you pick.
Nevertheless, here are some points to help you out.
In general, you can go with any type of jewelry for any type of recipient, but:
- Avoid giving super-expensive jewelry gifts on the early stages of your relationship.
- Don't give jewelry that's way out of your recipient's usual price range, even if you know each other for ages. It's okay to go just a bit over the top, but giving them a pair of earrings that's worth their annual salary... Not so good.
- Abstain from gifting a diamond ring if you're not proposing.
- It's not recommended to gift jewelry to your boss, coworker, neighbor, client, and any other person that you're not too close with. Jewelry is considered to be quite a personal gift, so leave this option for someone who's really dear to your heart.
How to gift jewelry for men
As a general rule, jewelry isn't among the best gifts for men. Not to be stereotypical, but that's just the way it is in the vast majority of cases.
However, if for some reason you still want to go for this option, pick something simple and classically masculine: a combination of leather with a precious metal detail, for example, or a stylish wristwatch. Gems are better to avoid, but hey - there are some folks that are really into that, so you'll have to trust your guts in the matter.
