Avoid Gift Cards & Vouchers as a last minute Christmas Gift.


Just spotted some timely wise advise from Paul Lewis. If you have forgotten to buy a Christmas present for someone I would advise that you follow Paul’s advice and don’t be tempted to buy a gift card.

Paul Lewis Gift Card Tweet


In recent years several big retailers have gone out of business (Woolworths etc) and gift vouchers become worthless. Even if the retailer doesn’t go out of business the vouchers or gift cards have use by dates and the shops tend not to give change on them. Best to give a cheque or cash, it may sound boring but it is safe.  See Paul’s blog for the full story.

Christmas Present Ideas for her: Jewellery Box

What are you going to get the women in your life for Christmas?  I know it can be hard to think of a great Christmas gift idea for her at this time of year, so today I’m writing my first Christmas gift idea for women blog.  Over the coming weeks I’ll post more gift ideas and I’d welcome any comments you may have.

Today I’m suggesting you consider buying a jewellery box for the women in your life.  I like the leather jewellery boxes by Dulwich Designs of London in the UK.

These Dulwich Designs jewellery boxes are beautifully finished off.  They cost a little more than some of the unbranded designs you’ll see in some high street stores but the quality shows and is worth spending just a little extra on.  The above Blush Pink Jewellery Box for example costs about £65 in the UK at the time of writing.  If you’ve been wondering what to buy your wife, girlfriend, mother or sister this will make a lovely Christmas present for her this year.

Finally if you agree this makes a lovely Christmas present, I suggest you do your homework and just make sure that she doesn’t already have a perfectly good jewellery box otherwise it would be quite such a thoughtful gift.

Do let me know what you think of this Dulwich Designs Jewellery Box.  I’d also be pleased to hear from you if you have any great ideas for thoughtful / special Christmas Presents for the women in your life.   If you’d like to get in touch just post a comment below or see the about page for more contact information.
