We’ve already learnt on the blog that charms make fantastic gifts. However, if you were wondering about when would be a good time to give a charm as a gift, look no further. We’ve compiled a list of 12 occasions that are suitable to give charms as gifts. Create extra special memories by gifting a charm on any of these occasions.
Giving Charms as Gifts on:
Birthdays are one of the most popular gift-giving occasions. Charms are great gifts and for milestone birthdays (18th, 30th etc), you can get customized charms to commemorate the special milestone of your loved one.
2/ Weddings & Anniversaries
Weddings are joyous events as family and loved ones gather to celebrate the union of the happy couple. A charm can be a simple way for the bride to remember the big day on a frequent basis. Alternatively, charms can be gifted to celebrate wedding anniversaries.
3/ Valentine’s Day
Although this day is associated with couples, it’s becoming increasingly commonplace to give gifts to others. You can show your love to those in your life with a charm to mark the Day of Love in February. Combine the charm with another gift (chocolates and flowers are great) and/or thoughtful gesture to make the day extra special.
4/ Mother’s Day
A charm is a great way to show appreciation to your mother or a lady who has played the role of a mother in your life. A handwritten note or card is also a fantastic complement to the charm for “mother dearest”.
Graduation signifies the completion of a course of study a programme. A charm gift is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievement particularly for teenagers or young adults who have successfully completed high school or university. A charm that represents their school or university can often become a treasured memento.
6/ Thank You
We can say thank you in so many ways from the literal words “thank you” to cards and small gifts and even large extravagant gifts. A charm fits somewhere in the middle on that scale and can be easily combined with other gifts to make it extra special as needed 🙂
7/ Christmas & Other Holidays
According to the song, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year to spend with friends and family. Charms are a unique option for Christmas gifts and to celebrate other holidays at that time of year as they can be personalised to each individual based on the distinct tastes and interests. Some can also be engraved for that extra unique touch.
8/ New Baby Birth/Christening/Dedication
This charm gift can be for the mum and/or the new baby girl as both are definitely part of the celebration. A charm placed on a necklace can very easily grow with the baby and eventually form part of her very own charm bracelet at a later age. Gifting a charm for the mum can become a tradition as a way to celebrate each child with a unique charm for each.
9/ Moving/Relocation Gift
Relocating to another country or another part of a country to start a new job or pursue studies is typical these days. A good luck charm or one that represents new beginnings can be a thoughtful gift to someone in this position. Alternatively, a charm that is a tangible reminder of the familiar amidst all the “new” can go a long way.
10/ Souvenir/Travel Related
A charm as a souvenir is a great way to commemorate a trip or holiday. It can become a regular reminder of the memories made and the bonus is that you can collect a charm unique to each destination you visit. Then you can create a one-of-a-kind travel collection charm bracelet.
11/ Professional Milestone
A new job, promotion or professional certification can be signified with a spanking new charm that can help you highlight the positives in the job or role you are leaving behind. For example, if you worked on a particular project or you were involved in an event that you really enjoyed, a charm is a fun way to remember this time and its importance to you professionally.
12/ Personalised Occasion
This one is fantastic as by default it is automatically very personalised as it relates to an event or milestone that is specific to the recipient. An example would be if a friend went on a hot air balloon ride and you gave her a charm of a hot air balloon to remind her of that trip.
Or here’s a personal example for me, I went on a horseback ride last year with some friends. I have a fear of heights so it was a major accomplishment personally to complete the horseback ride so a charm that symbolizes this accomplishment would certainly be a cherished gift for me.
Last but not least, although this post is specifically for gifting charms for specific occasions, it’s important to remember that we don’t need to be limited only to special occasions. Charms can be given anytime and “just because” gifts are lovely surprises for friends and families.
