Tradition says that on your 15th wedding anniversary you should receive crystal gifts. This is quite an important milestone in the modern marriage; especially as statistics suggest nearly 50% of marriages end in failure.
Of course, this is not the only time you will be looking at crystal gifts to find the perfect preset for a friend or loved on. The problem is that there are so many different potential items which can be given it can seem impossible to know where to start.
Fortunately you have this guide to choosing the right crystal gifts. These 5 points should help:
- Real or Fake
There is no doubt that a real crystal looks stunning and will get just the desired response. However, real crystals can be expensive and often seem very small for the money you have spent.
You need to decide what your budget is and whether this allows you to look at purchasing real crystals or not. Only when you have decided that your budget does allow you to purchase real crystals can you decide whether you want to or not.
- Ornament or Accessory
The next step is to decide if you are looking for something that they can proudly display in their home or wear while they are out on the town. This decision is usually guided by how well you know the person and whether you are purchasing for them or for a couple.
Obviously something that can be displayed in their home is preferably if it is a couple!
- Know Your Crystal
You can purchase a wide number of items with crystals in which relate to the birthstone of an individual. Of course you need to make sure you have the birthstone right first. Alternatively you may find it preferably to give a healing crystal or even an item of jewelry with crystal in.
The point is that you need to know what sort of gift will be appreciated by your friend; if you don’t then it is best to stir clear of all crystal gifts.
Once you’ve narrowed the field down to the right type of crystal gifts you need to be thinking about the funds you have available. No matter how important someone is to you there is no reason to go bankrupt purchasing the perfect crystal gifts for them.
Even if money is no object, select a budget and stick to it; this is good practice in everything you do.
- Shop Round
The common assumption today is that the internet is cheaper. Certainly in some cases this is true but not all the time. Look at the internet and look at who is selling crystal gifts close to you; you can then compare the price.
Yu should also factor in the service. A face to face encounter can give you valuable advice and be much easier to deal with if you have to return it or your friend has a question later on. Of course internet firms have returns policies and can offer advice. But there is something special about the personal touch.
