O MAT­TER how much thought and prepa­ra­tion you put into mak­ing sure you get the per­fect present for the spe­cial some­one in your life, there are very few op­tions that last for an ex­tended pe­riod of time.

That bot­tle of per­fume or af­ter­shave will more than likely be gone by the time Easter rolls around, while sim­i­lar ap­plies to beauty prod­ucts.

But one gift that is sure to be trea­sured long af­ter the fes­tive dec­o­ra­tions have been packed away is jew­ellery.

It’s a cat­e­gory of present that high­lights the emo­tional con­nec­tion be­tween giver and re­cip­i­ent, while also serv­ing a prac­ti­cal pur­pose.

And jew­ellery gifts aren’t just lim­ited to women’s rings, neck­laces or ear­rings - there’s plenty of op­tions for who­ever you’re look­ing to buy for.

Of course, your best bet is to head down to a lo­cal bricks-and-mor­tar jew­ellery store. That is where you will find the widest se­lec­tion of items, while also ben­e­fit­ing from the ex­pe­ri­ence and as­sis­tance of an in­dus­try pro­fes­sional who will be able to demon­strate the lat­est pop­u­lar styles and how they best com­ple­ment cer­tain fea­tures or per­son­al­i­ties.

Charm bracelets are an ideal op­tion for many - where a stun­ning­ly­de­signed bracelet can be adorned with a range of charms that re­flect the wearer’s in­ter­ests and have proved to be in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar in re­cent years.

Jew­ellery does not have to be worn, how­ever, you could also con­sider a ster­ling sil­ver or gold photo frame. It’s a gift that can be fur­ther en­hanced by in­sert­ing a pho­to­graph that means some­thing to the re­cip­i­ent - maybe of your­self and your sib­lings if it is a gift for a par­ent.

Watches are an­other good po­ten­tial present for both males and fe­males. Whether it’s a re­fined pre­cious me­tal time­piece, or a more rugged watch for keep­ing time dur­ing those ex­ten­sive Jan­uary gym ses­sions, there’s al­ways a lot on of­fer.

Pocket watches have soared in pop­u­lar­ity over the last decade or so and rep­re­sent an ideal keep­sake for the man in your life. Per­son­alise it fur­ther with an en­grav­ing or a favourite sports team’s logo on the face.
