For many of us, every Christmas is like having to start all over again – making the list of people we want to give gifts to, debating how much to spend and, most importantly, what to get.
Well, luckily, there are gifts that you can draw inspiration from for years to come. My example today is charm bracelets. A good few years ago, I gave my mum a Chamilia bracelet for her birthday. Back then they were seriously competing with Pandora, but this rivalry has quieted down a bit (at least in the UK Pandora is much bigger now), but I still prefer Chamilia’s charms (so no regrets there!).
What makes it so genius is that every year I give her at least two-three charms to top up her collection. So no headache whatsoever, you just go online and pick something from the new additions.
This year’s theme for me was all about peace, as she’s been upset about the instability across the world. This little globe and a dove, both symbols of peace and unity, will remind her that the good days will come.
The final charm is a peacock.
She’s been busy recently learning embroidery, and one of my favourite works of hers is this Bluebird of Happiness. I wanted to congratulate her on this achievement by giving her something that would remind her about it.
If you’re ever in doubt about what to get, consider similar items that require regular top ups. This way you’ll never have to guess what to give 🙂
