Silver Jewelry Is a Great Gift Idea

Do you have a special person in your life that you want to do something nice for? Buying a gift for someone who means a lot to you can be a difficult thing to do. The gift needs to show that you actually put some effort into picking it out. The recipient will not be impressed if your gift just looks like you grabbed the first thing on the shelf at the store. Therefore, you must give this gift some very careful consideration. There are many factors that will play a major role in which gift you eventually select. Here are some of the biggest reasons why silver jewelry is a great gift idea.

1. Silver is timeless

All you need to do is take a look at some silver jewelry from a long time ago to see that silver never goes out of style. It has a timeless quality to it that makes it an ideal choice for a gift. The person you give it to will treasure it and have no problem wearing it many years from now. It will never become outdated or go out of style. Very few gifts can remain usable and relevant for as long as silver jewelry. This is assuming the recipient handles the jewelry with care.

2. It is appealing

Let’s face it, silver would never have become such a popular material to make jewelry out of if it were ugly. Its pleasing appearance is one of its biggest selling points. Assuming the craftsmanship is top notch, a silver piece of jewelry has a way of drawing the eye of every person in the vicinity.

3. Silver will go with any type of clothing

No matter what type of clothing that a person wears, silver will look stylish with it. You never need to worry about whether or not a silver piece of jewelry will go with a particular outfit. The answer will always be a resounding yes. This is a good thing because it will allow the recipient of your gift to wear the jewelry very often instead of just on special occasions. You do not want your gift to collect dust.

4. It is affordable

Gold and platinum jewelry will put a serious dent in your pocketbook. However, silver is often priced at a level where many people can afford it.

Nail-a-holics Experience

I always had my manicure and pedicure at the comforts of our home. My mom will just text her “Suki Manicurista” to visit our home and do a home service to us. It is much cheaper contrary to what other people might be thinking because we live in the province.

Today I have experienced for the first time a manicure-pedicure services at a posh spa in Centrio Ayala Mall at Cagayan de Oro City because the boyfie insisted. He told me that I should experience it even for once in my life, without thinking how much will I be spending in such Spa.

This is Rubi and she did a good job in attending to my needs. Aside from cleaning my nails and putting my preferred nail polish, she gently massage my arms and legs too.

The downside of having to be serviced at a posh spa is that they have so many customers, I went there at around 1 pm and the receptionist told me that they will just call me after 45 minutes. They have different promos but the receptionist didn’t offer it to me and I don’t know why. She just asked me what I need and I told her that I want to have my nails done. After an hour or so, Rubi finished in cleaning and putting on some nails polish on my hand and feet and it sure looks great.

I paid 500php for my nails (250php for my hands and 250php for my feet). Their services is for 200ph for fingernails and 200php for your toenails but I have chosen the branded nail polish so I have to pay the extra 50php for hands and another 50php for my feet. I gave a tip to Rubi too for being so nice to me.

Taking Gifting to the Next Level

Today is the last day to join Nuffnang’s Merry SM Christmas Blogger Contest and I have finally decided to join it. I have been thinking on what to write for this contest and I have finally found the answer while browsing my old photo albums in my Facebook Page.

You see, I don’t usually post my Christmas Wish List because nobody has been giving into my demands. Nobody really cared to give me something because they think that my Christmas wishes are expensive or maybe they think that I already have it all so they don’t need to give me any Christmas presents. Well, my Christmas Wish List includes a new pair of eye glasses ( I only have one pair and I believe that I need a spare because sometimes I forget to bring them and I cannot read anymore without my eye glasses) , a shoe rack (the one I got from an online shop sucks, it always gets broken and won’t stay in one place), and a leather seat cover for my car (I have been dreaming to buy one but just couldn’t afford it just yet and it’s quite out of my budget).

The Christmas gift ideas for my loved ones this year are :

  • For my Dad – I want to give him a new shaver, he’s growing his beard and I don’t like it.
  • For my Mom – I want to give her a new pair of slippers, she’s not into shoes and sandals, so I will give her what she wants and needs.
  • For my Fiance – I want to give him Nike train shorts because he needs it more than ever, especially now that they will have their Basketball Game for the Christmas Season.
  • For my Son – I want to give him a new pair of school shoes, the one he is currently using still looks good but I think he outgrew it already.
  • For my Daughter – I want to give her lots of double A and triple A batteries for her electronic toys and dolls.
  • For my brothers – I want to give them new polo shirts to wear for Christmas Eve.

And for the Last Question “How do you plan to give back to others this Christmas?” here is my million dollar answer :

I plan to give back to others this Christmas by joining the activities prepared by our Philippine Army to our Lumad brothers in Bukidnon. It is not a secret that we have many IDPs (Internally Displaced People) in Bukidnon right now because of so many problems that these Lumads are currently facing. There are those who run away from their ancestral land for the reason that armed rebels had attacked them and they decided to flee to save their lives. These people needs help, they don’t have any property, they don’t have a home, they don’t have work, they don’t have anything to eat anymore. They need support, they need medical attention, and they need us more than ever. A little help goes a long way, so I did ask my friends to give what they can, be it used clothing, pre-loved toys from their kids, and food to ease the hunger that our Lumad brothers are currently facing. We will be conducting medical and dental mission because our Philippine Army have doctors and dentists, but we lack medicines, so I am trying to find people who could help us with it. I hope by posting this Gift-Giving idea in my blog post, I could find people who will help in one way or another.

Another way for you to participate in Season of Gifting is through here :  Check out the SM Cares Bears of Joy campaign and know how you can take part in the season of “gift-ing” (http://smcares.com.ph/newsevents/?p=993)

I have joined a lot of alternative Christmas Party for our Lumad brothers for the past 2 years and I can say that it was successful and life-changing. A close friend of mine started his Dream and Action Foundation 4 years ago, this year will be the 5th year of gift-giving to our Lumad Brothers in different municipalities here in Bukidnon Province. We gather our old but usable clothes, pre-loved toys, and food that we could share every year to give to our Lumad Brothers during the Christmas Party that we celebrate with them. We also ask some of our family and friends for support so that we can cater more people every year.

Here are some of the photos that we had during the events:
