5 Gift Card Alternatives for the Holiday Season

Tis the season for gift giving, which means that millions of people will be crowding into malls, or at the very least hovering over gift card kiosks for last minute gift ideas.

My Jewelry Repair would like to remind folks that there are more original avenues than the gift card routine, especially if you’re purchasing a gift or figuring out something special to do for someone who is very important to you.

Below we go over 5 gift card alternatives that are sure to put a smile on your gift recipient’s face.

1.) Watch Repair from a My Jewelry Repair Certified Watchmaker

We don’t really like to toot our own horns unless it’s to make festive holiday music, but we do like to let our customers know that our certified watchmakers hone their craft year-round. Our team embarks on trips around the globe to earn new distinctions — WOSTEP, CW21 & SAWTA included. Chances are there’s someone close to you who needs a beloved timepiece repaired. It’s the perfect surprise for any watch lover.

2.) Chocolate (or Any Edible Gift for that Matter)

Yes, chocolate is almost always a good idea. Instead of purchasing an item that will take up space and be kept with other items that can really start to accumulate, give a gift that won’t stick around for too long — chocolate! Peanut brittle is good, too. There are also sugar-free options for those with dietary restrictions. Dark chocolate has nutritional value as well.

3.) Give the Gift of an Experience

Instead of giving gift cards to department stores and the like, think outside the box a bit and give the gift of an experience. Puzzle rooms are great fun, perhaps book a bed and breakfast for a friend who desperately needs it. Gifts such as these will make a lasting impression.

4.) Massage Time!

If you’re feeling the holiday burn, you can join in on this one, too. Book an hour or more on the table for you and a special someone, or even a close friend. It’s a great way to unwind and spend some quality time after a stressful holiday season.

5.) Ring Sizing from My Jewelry Repair

It’s not too uncommon for people’s fingers to fluctuate in size, which is when My Jewelry Repair’s ring sizing and ring re-sizing services come through in the clutch. For whatever reason your loved one might need their treasured ring sized up or down, we’re here to handle it. We have an easy online, mail-in process.

At My Jewelry Repair we just want to remind our customers and readership that it’s always the thought that counts this time of year. Make sure your gift choice reflects a little thought power for the 2018 holiday season.
