I’ve always been a fan of charm bracelets and collecting charms growing up. Now as an adult it’s still one of my favourite gifts to receive and also give. There are so many different types and options to suit all occasions. I’m excited to share more about these on this blog.
First, though, I wanted to take a look at reasons why charms make great gifts:
1/ Charms tell a Story
People often buy charms or gift them to mark milestones and occasions in life such as birthdays, anniversaries. Thes charms later tell stories due to the sentimental value attached. They also act as physical reminders of treasured memories and often become more precious with time. It’s really an interesting way to see a snapshot of the highlights of your life. Also, charms can become a gift-giving tradition, for example, a mother who gives her daughter a charm for each birthday.
2/ Various Charms are widely available
There are hundreds if not thousands of charms available from a variety of sellers. Obviously, the Pandora brand is very well known and is practically synonymous with charms. However, there is a great selection for different tastes and preferences and it can be part of the fun to search and find that perfect charm that suits the milestone you are celebrating.
3/ Charms fit most budgets
This follows on from the above point as there is also a range of prices for charms from lower-end options to high-quality charms. Charms can start from US$10 however, bear in mind that the quality is often reflected in the price so based on your budget, you can choose accordingly. The charms are also easily accessible as they can be purchased online and from brick and mortar stores. You can decide on the option that’s most convenient for you.
4/ Charms last a long time
Charm bracelets often outlive their owners (once they are cared and managed well. For example, seawater and the chlorine in pools are not good for jewellery so be sure to take off your bracelet before you go flocking in the water. A bonus of charms being able to last long is that they can become multi-generational as a charm bracelet can be passed down in families.
5/ Charms are great for gift bundling
Charms are great gifts that can be added with other items to create multi-piece combo gifts. You can combine with other pieces of jewellery or other unrelated items as well eg a massage or other spa gift. It can also be simple so a personalised card and/or a handwritten note along with the charm can mean a lot.
I hope the reasons above helped convince you to consider charms for the loved ones in your life. I look forward to sharing different options for various occasions and milestones on the blog so stay tuned!
