It can be a challenge to find the right gift for a relative with whom you do not share everyday life. The relative is loved, and the gift must be thoughtful. Sure, you share a lifetime of memories, but not many of them are current or relevant in everyday life. This is exactly the reason that charm bracelets are so wonderful. They allow you to tie relevant parts of life into a gift that may not fit the recipients current life. There is very little risk for disappointment because every charm is meaningful.
How to pick a charm for your loved one
Maybe every time you get together with your cousin, you tell the same story about her chasing a bat out of the cabin one summer. A bat or a cabin charm would cement that memory in jewelry. Maybe you are looking for a graduation gift. A graduation cap or diploma charm would commemorate the event. Charm bracelets are memory chains, and it would be difficult to find an event that could not be represented through charms.
Charms for bracelets come in many shapes, and they are relatively inexpensive. The chains or bracelets come in different styles, including flat charms, which are low profile and can be stacked. Once you buy a charm bracelet for a loved one, you’ll never have a hard time thinking of a gift again.
Charm bracelets don’t have to be gifts.
With charm bracelets like Pandora gaining popularity, it is clear that charm bracelets are not only gifts but fashion statements. Instead of children being represented by small, childlike charms, children can be represented with birthstones. Charms don’t have to represent anything. They can simply be shapes or designs that are preferred by the wearer. With the color combinations available and the removable nature of charms, they can be removed and exchanged to fit outfits or seasons. It is a versatile wardrobe item.
The only downfall to charm bracelets is knowing whether or not a person already has one. Nobody needs two of the same charm bracelet. We recommend that you ask friends or family of the recipient to find out what type of charm bracelet they have, so charms will be sure to fit their current bracelet. Of course, if the recipient does not have one already, then they definitely need one!
And remember, they don’t have to be gifts. Maybe you need to get yourself a charm bracelet. They are fun, versatile, and they can be a fashion statement.
