Shopping for holiday presents is hard. When you’re searching for someone you’re really close to, there’s a lot of pressure to buy something personal. And when you’re shopping for someone you know nothing about, it’s hard to determine what they’d like. But when all else fails, we’ve got your go-to covered: affordable jewelry gifts.
Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings (not the engagement kind) are pretty much no-fail gift choices, no matter who you’re shopping for. Your BFF? Get them a bracelet with an inspiring message. Your mom? Get her a locket with a cute pic of you two inside. Your S.O.? Get ’em a necklace with your initial on it. Your cousin’s new girlfriend who’s crashing this year’s holiday party, putting a lot of stress on you to buy her something appropriately-priced but still cute? Something sparkly will do.
But of course, as with everything else, finding cute jewelry on a budget can seem impossible. Especially if you don’t want the gift receiver to know it was purchased on a budget. So how on earth are you supposed to find high-quality baubles at a cousin’s-new-girlfriend price?
Shop our budget-friendly jewelry gift guide, of course. Ahead, you’ll find our fave giftable jewelry pieces at every price point—we promise, your giftee will love them.
