Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend

It’s back; the time of year where you have to rack your mind about what to get your girlfriend for Christmas.  There are so many options out there and at the same time guys know almost nothing about girly stuff.  Fear not my friends, Pierre is here to help with this brief article filled with ideas.  After this you should have almost no trouble picking out the perfect gift that will make your girl smile.

Whatever you do, stay away from buying clothing.  The only exception is if you know exactly the specific article of clothing she wants as well as the size.  Other than that, it’s pretty much a ticking time bomb.  Think about it; if you get a size too small she’ll feel bad because she can’t fit into it.  If you get a size too big then she’ll say, “what, do you think I’m fat or something?”  You just can’t win with clothing.  What you should also try to do is ask her close friends for their opinion.  You have to make sure it’s a friend who’s good at keeping secrets too.  They can usually provide good insight into what your girl might want, and can even give you their opinion on the things that you already have picked out.

What I would really recommend is that you get your girl jewelry.  You really can’t go wrong with a nice piece of jewelry.  The problem is that guys don’t really know much about women’s jewelry.  That can be easily solved (which I will get into in a bit).  It’s important that you know your girl’s style.  You probably don’t want to get something really flashy for a girl that’s into that hippy kind of style.  On the other hand, you wouldn’t want to get leather and beads for a girl who has a really classy style.

Here’s the thing, most girls do like diamonds and white gold stuff.  However, after doing research you will find that anything quality with diamonds is usually really expensive.  There is no shame in getting fake diamond jewelry.  In fact, even fake diamond jewelry can be really good quality and fairly expensive.  I once bought a white gold bracelet encrusted with cubic zirconium for about $150 for my girlfriend.  It was super nice too!  Of course, that wasn’t the only gift I got her but it was definitely a good one.  Good places to shop for jewelry are: Nordstrom (definitely), Links of London, and Tiffany’s.  You can look online, but I personally like to look at the jewelry I’m buying because you can’t really tell the quality online.

Before you go out shopping, make sure you start doing a search on what’s fashionable right now.  Take a look at girls who you are friends with on facebook (who have style) and see what they’re wearing.  Also look at celebrities.  This will give you a general idea of what you’re looking for.  Then it’s time to hit the malls.  I would especially recommend Nordstrom because the staff there are super helpful and will literally escort you around.  Go up to a woman who works there and explain your situation to her and give her an idea of what you’re looking for.  She will then proceed to give you some sound female advice and will show you her suggestions.  There you have it, the perfect way to pick out a gift!
