As a clinical-psychologist-turned-blogger, I’ve focused my career on normalizing daily struggles. One of those struggles, especially during the holidays, is finding the right gift for the right person. I imagine we all have that special someone on our holiday shopping lists. Are you looking for a first-time gift to your girlfriend? A big surprise for your wife or mom? Perhaps it's for the perfect little something for your daughter or best friend. Maybe you want to spoil yourself.
No matter who you’re shopping for this holiday season, jewelry is always a good idea. I’m excited to share below some of my favorite picks for those special people in my life—and yours.
FOR MY MOM
My mom has always been there for me. Because sapphire is traditionally associated with longevity in relationships, this bracelet makes a sparkly treat and symbolic gift.
MY BEST FRIEND OR YOUR GIRLFRIEND
My friends and I have similar styles so I chose something that I would wear myself. You can always borrow, right?
Whether it’s her first diamond ring or tenth, she’ll love it. Trust me, I’m a doctor.
FOR YOUR WIFE
Doesn’t your one and only deserve one more ring?
AND FOR ME
Told you I had the same taste as my friends. This cocktail stunner fits right in with the squad.
These are my favorites. Which one is yours? And more importantly, did you find a great gift? I honestly hope you did and if not, check out some of the other amazing pieces from Blue Nile and see which one gives you that sparkle in your eye.
