There's something really special about receiving a Christmas gift you know has been picked especially with you in mind. Something you've really wanted, something which speaks to you on a personal level or something totally unexpected; which warms your heart and makes your eyes well up. You know the kind of gift I mean - rather than unwrapping a million Selection Boxes or something from the Boots 3-for-2 on Christmas day [default presents] - discovering something under the tree that genuinely makes your tummy do a little flip of happiness; because it's so thoughtful. 

These are the kind of gifts I try to give my loved ones each year. I think I'm pretty good at picking out presents [or more likely, that I'm just dead good at spending money] so I have a few Christmas Gift Ideas & Guides coming for you guys over the next few weeks, to inspire you too. And today I have a beautiful pick to show you from Quaint Charms Jewellery which fits the above criteria perfectly - this beautiful Ruby Birth Stone Necklace*, rrp £30.

I love giving and receiving jewellery as a gift; I proper heart how each piece says something about your personality, helps express your personal style and how everyone has that one iconic piece that you associate with them. Birthstones or anything to do with Star Signs [anything spiritual at all, really] always really speaks to me - and I know my younger sister is very into all this, too. So this necklace made the perfect choice and is something I'd definitely gift to a family member this Christmas. It's delicate, meaningful, personal and unusual - making it a very memorable piece to remind you of Christmas 2016 [and the person who bought it for you] for years to come.

Both my sister and I were born in July, 3 years apart. And if you didn't know, Ruby is the birthstone for that month. So for this reason, I chose this beautiful Ruby Birthstone NecklaceQuaint Charms Jewellery have a vast array of other, beautiful statement pieces in their Etsy store too. The store is ran by Bibi - a lovely London based jewellery designer who specialises in stunning, affordable luxury jewellery, with most items under £50. 

Quaint Charms Jewellery is created using high quality supplies, artistic flair and attention to detail; to craft gorgeous hand made jewellery that can be worn to any occasion. Their designs include personalised jewellery, bridal party / wedding jewellery, glamorous fashion jewellery, gemstone jewellery, silver sterling jewellery and much more; pretty much guaranteeing there's something in their store for everyone this Christmas.

This delicate 18k gold filled necklace boasts an irregular cut ruby, which is beautifully faceted and full on sparkles when it catches the light. The deep red and gold look amazing in this choker style necklace - especially during the festive season.

Available in 16, 17 and 18 inches, this July Birthstone Necklace is also available in Emerald, Sapphire, Aqua, Periwinkle and more - just drop Bibi a message to find out more. It makes the perfect birthday or Christmas gift - with that special, personal touch. It also comes presented in a giftbox, which saves you on wrapping this year!

My necklace has an 18 inch chain, which makes it very versatile in how I can style it and what I can wear it with. It can be styled in countless ways, I adore it. Timeless designs like this can be perfectly slotted into anyone's personal style or any outfit, to make it their own. Winner.

I will certainly be checking out Quaint Charms Jewellery for inspiration when I come to complete more of my Christmas Shopping this month - and you should totally head there too. This necklace would be an ideal gift for my sister and there are some beautiful earrings which have caught my eye too. It's always nice to support independent businesses at this time of year [I have an Etsy gift guide coming soon to show you why] and by buying from Quaint Charms, you're guaranteeing that no-one will be gifting the same item as you this year; as everything in the collection is handmade and totes unique. Kiss those awkward duplicate gift moments goodbye and save yourself the hassle of fighting over the Boots Soap and Glory offers this year - shop independent.
