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.

Peanut brittle is good, too. There are also sugar-free options for those with dietary restrictions. Dark chocolate has nutritional value as well.

Jewelry Sales Have Been on the Rise

In 2017, there was a Mastercard-SpendingPulse survey that showed a nearly 6% increase in holiday jewelry sales. The same survey showed a surge in jewelry sales the week before Christmas. That means many people save their jewelry purchases for last, which might make people more prone to making a mistake or purchasing something of the wrong size, whether it be a watchringbracelet, etc.

Jewelry retailers in general saw an increase in sales last year and expect the same this year, many of which increased sales over 10% according to a Centurion survey of upscale jewelers.

December is Engagement Season

Statista asserted that December of 2017 was the most popular engagement month as it held a 16% share of those surveyed, with May and July its closest competitors at 9% each. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day make up two of the top 5 most popular days for engagements as well.
