3 Useful Tips When Buying Earrings As A Christmas Gift

Posted on 06 November 2019

With the holidays coming up, many guys are bound to find themselves in the usual panic, frantically looking for perfect presents for the women in their lives. Worry not – we’ve got you. When it comes to gifts, you can’t go wrong with earrings.

But where to start? What to buy? How can you be sure your wife, girlfriend, mother, sister or friend will like your gift? These handy tips are a great first step towards making someone’s Christmas a merry one, indeed.

1. Do some digging on what kind of earrings she likes

Different strokes for different folks, after all. Some women prefer subtle hoops, while others lean towards the flashier chandeliers. Whoever you’re buying the gift for, pay attention to the kind of earrings she wears often, or take a quick peek at her earring drawer or jewellery box, if she’s got one. For example, if she has more silver than gold pieces, she most likely prefers sterling silver earrings and that would be your best bet.

Her daily activities can also inform your options. Like if she goes to the gym a lot, chances are she wears studs more often than hoops as they don’t get in the way when she works out. But if her job requires going to client parties, she probably wears dressier designs such as drop earrings. Pick something that aligns with her interests, add in a thoughtful note, and you’ll be racking up the plus points (until the next big event, at least).

Buying her a gift doesn't have to be so difficult. Simply try to match her favourite colour, or find out her birthstone and you're guaranteed to get plenty of appreciation.

2. Match the earrings to something about her

If there’s no way to find out what specific kind of jewellery or earrings the recipient of your gift likes, focus on one thing about her, like her eyes or her favourite colour. If you want to go the extra mile, find out when she was born and do a quick search on her birthstone – that never fails.

The most important thing here is to keep it simple. Since you’re not sure about the earring styles she prefers, err on the safe side and choose designs that are timeless, accented by whatever feature you want to highlight. For example, if her eyes are blue, you can choose small dangling earrings with sapphires. If her birthday is in June, pearl earrings are an excellent idea – it doesn’t matter that it’s Christmas, the mere fact that you know what her birthstone is, is what matters. Say something along the lines of, “Saw these and thought they matched your eyes,” and you’re guaranteed to get plenty of appreciation.

To find out more about what she likes or wants, try to inject indirect questions into a casual conversation or check her Instagram or Facebook page. 

3. Ask some indirect questions

If you’re buying earrings as a Christmas gift for someone who’s particularly picky, or who has very specific ideas about the things she wants, some light probing may be necessary, especially if you’re keeping the gift a surprise.

The key here is to keep your questions subtle; any direct references and her instincts will pick up on them. Remark on the earrings of an actress, or a friend you both know, or inject the topic into the casual conversation. The answers will give you an idea of what she does and does not like. Say you see a poster of a singer wearing chandelier earrings, and you comment that those look pretty heavy. She’ll generally interpret this as you saying the earrings are not attractive and will assume you’re asking for her opinion. If she says something positive, it’s a good bet that she’d wear something similar. You can also ask her friends or family members. Sometimes, they’re even better judges of what earrings to get than the actual person you’re giving them to.
