Sterling Silver Charm Bracelet Gift Solutions

Almost no matter what the time of year, it seems as if there is another important holiday or social event racing towards you and the task of finding just the right gift looms large: Christmas, Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day are obvious examples, but when you add in birthdays, anniversaries and the myriad of other occasions such as Mother’s Day that you need to recognize by buying some close friend or relative a gift, the list can become quite alarming. You soon realize that it is quite a task to keep refreshing your thoughts with gift ideas that are not stale or simply routine. So the aim of these few words is to suggest one item that can fill the bill for a few different ladies in your life – mother, daughter, business friend and more besides – and one that will provide opportunities for follow-on purchase for later gift occasions: that item is a sterling silver charm bracelet.

The great thing about sterling silver is that is offers a tremendous range of products in wide price ranges, so you should be able to find something that fits your budget. Some offerings are simpler than other and some more intricate, but you can begin with a simple bracelet or even just a chain with one charm attached and that will be a basis for you to add more charms over the succeeding years. The lady in question can also buy more sterling silver charms to personalize the bracelet even more and make it unique to her tastes and lifestyle: there are charms of all types and styles imaginable, including animal, sports, pop culture and even specialist Disney-themed ones. Far from there being a dearth of ideas in this area, you might find the choice of charms overwhelming at first.

Another fine point about sterling silver jewelry is the ease with which it can be cleaned. Sometimes this type of metal can tarnish, because other metals used to create the alloy and make it harder (usually copper) cause the problem. However, there are many cleaning products that are widely available and that are simple to use as well as being inexpensive, so the bracelet owner can take care of the required tasks easily.

Handing a silver charm bracelet to a loved friend or relative is a great way to deliver a loving message and to provide the intended wearer with a beautiful and useful addition to their wardrobe. Whether you can afford an expensive one or even a budget-priced one, you are making a statement about your love and respect for the person at the same time as you give them an excellent addition to their jewelry box that will serve them well as a match for many outfits that they own. So the next time you have a gift dilemma to solve for a lady that you care for, give the idea of a sterling silver charm bracelet some serious thought.

Which Flowers to Deliver

Knowing the right kind of flowers to deliver for different occasions is important — you’d hate to offend someone by sending the wrong flower to a funeral or a wedding. Since most of us aren’t certified florists or floral arrangers, we depend on flower shop employees to help us pick flowers to deliver. Want a handy guide that shows which flowers to deliver to which occasion?

Wedding

Seasonal flowers are best for weddings. Select light colored and more delicate flowers at spring time, and darker, richly colored flowers in the fall or winter.

Anniversary

Picking anniversary flowers is tough — it is best to know the kind of flowers the receiver wants. Pick seasonal flowers combined with a fruit basket. Matching a flower to the receiver’s personality, and adding your own special touch, are key to pulling off anniversary flowers.

Friendship

Yellow roses always mean “friendship.”

Valentine´s Day

Roses are traditional, but you don’t have to buy red. Consider sending a group of roses of different shades, like red, bright white, or yellow.

Father´s Day

Think Dad doesn’t want flowers on his special day? Think again. A big bouquet of strong and beautiful tropical flowers is perfect.

Mother´s Day

We know Mom wants flowers on Mother’s Day — send carnations, scented narcissi, or lily of the valley.

New Baby

Brightly colored flowers are the best way to greet a new baby.

Thanksgiving

The best Turkey Day flowers are Chrysanthemums, but any of the following will work: gerbera daisies, roses, carnations, alstroemeria, lilies, wheat, solidago, monte casino, marigolds.

Halloween

It can be difficult to find good Halloween flowers, so consider combining a small Jack o Lantern with a simple flower bouquet.

Birthday

Bright and colorful flowers are best on birthdays. If you know the receiver’s favorite flower, send a bouquet of those.

Christmas

There are some traditional Christmas flowers, including holly with green leaves and red berries, poinsettia plants with red or white flowers, and even Christmas cacti with green leaves and pink flowers.

Easter

Traditionally, White Zantedeschia aethiopica (also known as Calla Lily), a bouquet of white Roses, a trio of standard white Carnations, or lime green Euphorbia robbiae are the flower for Easter.

Sympathy

Funerals or other occasions for sympathy call for gladiolas, white Carnations, or white Daisies.

Just Because

When you want to put a smile on someone’s face, send them a surprise bouquet. Send an assortment of traditional flowers such as chrysanthemum, mini carnations, and greenery.

Hospital

Check with the hospital beforehand to make sure they don’t have restrictions on flowers. Otherwise, send bright flowers, red or yellow, in a pretty vase.

Housewarming

To beautify someone’s home, send them something simple and elegant. A large bunch of fresh seasonal flowers in a pretty vase makes an elegant housewarming gift.

Graduation

There are two traditional flower gifts at graduation time — lilies of different colors combined in a bouquet, or a combo of red, yellow, and blue flowers of any type.

Mother’s Day Poems

Mother’s Day Poems

The great thing about Mother’s Day is that everyone has a Mom. Not everyone can be a mother, but everyone has a mother that they can honor in some way. Every year, Mother’s Day lands on the second Sunday in May. This year, Mother’s Day is on May 9th, 2010.

Happy Mother's Day

Whatever gift that you have in mind, consider adding a poem to your present. Whether you find your poem inside a Mother’s Day card or write your own thoughtful verse, you’ll be surprised how much a Mother’s Day poem can reach the heart of your mother.

If you need ideas to get started with writing your poem, simply jot down attributes that you like about your mother. Words like kind, gentle, fun, pretty, and reliable can blossom into bigger words like thoughtful, smart, spirited, beautiful, and trustworthy. Once you have the adjectives that you’d like to use, now begin rhyming the words into a poem.

If you’re looking for inspiration, visit your nearest gift store or pharmacy. As you look through the many Mother’s Day cards, you’ll notice that each one is unique in expressing their own sentiment of appreciation.

Most importantly, a Mother’s Day poem should come from your heart. Even the fanciest verse won’t stand up to your own words of gratitude and love. Whether your poem is written to your own Mom, your sister, an aunt, or even a friend, know that your poem will be appreciated.
