Buy charms to celebrate this summer!

The weather is glorious and summer is here! There is much to celebrate.

I would advise you to make a list of forthcoming occasions, Christenings, Weddings, Graduations and Birthdays and see whether a charm might be the perfect gift for each occasion. Shop now and then relax knowing you have lots of little purple packages containing the charms you need to present when you need them.

Christenings, Births and First Birthdays are all ideal times to start a charm bracelet. If the child is a little girl, then starting a bracelet now will mean you always have a present to buy her. A gold bracelet would be nice but a silver bracelet would also be treasured. I have just sent a first charm, a Number One Charm to a Grandmother who is gifting this to her grand-daughter on her first Birthday.

A charm bracelet is also a lovely gift for the mother, it is the start of a journey for her too. Initials are very popular additions to bracelets and necklaces. A new initial with the arrival of each child. The charm bracelet becomes more unique and special with the addition of each charm.

Another service I offer is making footprint, handprint and fingerprint jewellery. I can send you a kit to take the prints. All the handprints and footprints are scaled down to be tiny enough to imprint into the charms or pendant, so it doesn't matter how old the child is. The jewellery is available in silver and gold and is a really lovely present for a Mum or Grandmother, perfect gift for a special birthday.

This service is also perfect when looking for the gift for 'the man that has everything'. We all know men are a nightmare to buy for. A pair of cufflinks or a tie slide cast with his child's prints is a gift he will always treasure, whether he has the lifestyle where he wears them to work everyday or if he just keeps them for special occasions. Great for a Father's Day Gift too!

It is approaching the time when students are reaching their finals and finally Graduating. A great way to commemorate their achievement is to give them one of our graduation charms. We have Mortarboards in two sizes. The larger one can be engraved with the Degree obtained and the year, if you wish. Our small Gold Mortarboard Charm is very popular. If your student graduated in Scotland where they don't do the Mortarboard thing, we have a Graduation Scroll Charm too.

If you have a summer of wedding coming up. A great inexpensive gift would be one of our silver wedding charms. We have a good range to suit every wedding. Wedding Rings Charms, A Wedding Cake Charm a Wedding Bell Charm and various churches. a more subtle idea would be the bride and grooms initials. I could put them together on a ring and they could be attached to necklace, a bracelet or even added to a carrier bead for a Pandora or Troll bracelet.

As for birthdays, what you really want to do is capture a moment in time or the imagination of the birthday girl. I you can find and buy a charm that represents something in their life, you are onto a winner. I recently sent a Strawberry Charm for a 21st birthday gift as it was always her daughter's nickname. A Bucket and Spade Charm to remember happy days on the beach. A Cruise Liner Ship Charm to bring back memories of a special adventure. A Scottish Terrier Charm replica of a favourite dog. We have so many to choose from and if you can't find what you are looking for, please email or give me a call. You never know what we have in our safe, in our getting round to it, drawer.

Hoping this advice will spur you into getting organised this summer, and kick start your imagination into finding the perfect gift for the summer celebrations ahead. Buy now and enjoy the summer!!
