Gift Giving Guide
Every year, there are those special days that call out for a very special gift. These occasions include milestone moments, like graduations, new babies and weddings, annual celebrations like birthdays Christmas and Valentine's Day, and commemorative occasions like Mother's and Father's days. Gifts are traditionally given on each of these occasions, and jewelry from Zales is always a thoughtful option.
Graduation – High school, college or even a trade school graduation is a significant achievement. Commemorate this goal with a substantial piece like a watch, perfect for both men and women. Pearl jewelry is often given to women upon graduation, as it symbolizes a welcome to adult‐hood.
Wedding – One of the most momentous occasions, it is traditional for the bride and groom to gift each other with something special before the ceremony. For the groom, personalized looks like watches, cuff links and valets or watch boxes are always good choices. For the bride, the groom might choose diamond earrings or a diamond or gemstone pendant to complement her bridal attire.
Birth of baby – After nine long months, your new bundle of joy has arrived. Now's the time to honor the new mom for all the hard work she put into her pregnancy with a 'push gift.' Diamond stud earrings are the traditional push gift, however stackable rings (one for mom, dad and baby) or family rings or pendants with everyone's birthstone are thoughtful choices as well.
Birthday – Everyone has them, once a year like clockwork. And everyone loves to be celebrated on their special day. One of the most meaningful gifts is birthstone jewelry. Classic and modern designs in rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more, featuring a breathtaking gemstone for each and every month, are the perfect gift for both him and for her.
Anniversary – This is one annual celebration that absolutely cannot be forgotten! Reflect upon your loving commitment with diamond anniversary bands in styles for both him and her. Three‐stone diamond or gemstone rings celebrate your past, present and future together and are always welcomed. Or go modern‐yet‐personal with an engraved fashion pendant or a couple's ring.
Christmas – Everyone knows the best gifts come in small packages. And sparkle always packs a HUGE style punch. Jewelry is a great gift for just about everyone on your list.
- For women: You can't go wrong with a diamond pendant or earrings. A traditional diamond tennis bracelet says "I love you" all year long.
- For men: The business man side of him will appreciate some monogrammed cuff links or a signet ring. And a new watch will keep him on time all the time.
- For girls: Classic hoop earrings or her first pair of diamond studs are always a good choice. Flirty stack rings or a monogram fashion pendant are great stocking stuffers.
- For boys: Gold and silver chains add style to his ever‐changing look. A design from the Shaquille O'Neal Collection is a bold and modern choice any young man will appreciate.
Valentine's Day – Now is not the time to be subtle! Make your feelings known with heart‐themed pendants, adorned with sparkling diamonds or colorful gemstones. Infinity symbol‐themed designs express your everlasting love, and are a meaningful choice.
Mother's Day – Mom is the heart of the family. There's no more meaningful way to honor her than with a piece of family jewelry. A great idea is a family ring that has everyone's birthstone displayed along with the corresponding names. A family tree pendant, personalized with birthstones, is also a smart option.
Father's Day – This is no time for ties or socks! Honor Dad with a thoughtful gift like a watch. A Dad‐themed fashion ring or monogrammed cuff links, tie tac or money clip are traditional choices he will love – and use!
Communion/Confirmation – Celebrate this statement of faith with fine jewelry. For girls, a classic cross pendant or cross stud earrings are thoughtful choices. For young men, this occasion traditionally calls for his first good watch, although a handsome cross pendant or St. Christopher medallion are also good options.
As you can see, there are many occasions to celebrate throughout the year. And whatever the occasion, jewelry is always a welcome gift.
