Birthdays

Everyone wants to feel the love and appreciation on their birthday, and what better way to demonstrate your love than with a memorable silver gift? A masterfully crafted silver piece of jewellery can last a lifetime and for the classic and treasured present, a silver bracelet makes the perfect gift and will no doubt be appreciated. Whether for your child, partner, parent or friend, the range of silver gifts you can buy are plentiful and include jewellery, watches, pocket watches, a compass or vase.

Anniversaries

An anniversary is a special day for all couples; it’s a time to celebrate another milestone of their togetherness and love, and if you have a happy couple that you love to treat then a silver gift would no doubt be appreciated. 25 years is the traditional time in which a husband or wife presents their partner with a silver gift, but if you aren’t part of the happy couple then you don’t need to worry too much about traditions, you can gift them with silver at any time. If you are part of the couple and you wish to wait until the landmark celebration then a gift such as a diamond heart bracelet set in silver is sure to dazzle the lady in your life.

Weddings

A wedding is one of the most special days in a person’s life. It marks a new beginning in the incredible adventure that is life and you get a special someone to share the rest of your life with. A silver gift commemorates this occasion and makes it even more special, so treat the happy couple to a present that they will remember, whether that is something traditional or for their home. A silver Champagne bath and flutes would make for a fun and well used gift here no doubt – pop a bottle of your favourite Champagne in there too and let the happy couple toast their special day in style.

Graduation

Graduation comes but once in a lifetime. Finally, after years of hard work, you graduate and get ready to take your next step in the world, and what could be a nicer graduation present than a piece of silver jewellery to represent an age of maturity and to mark the beginning of your professional life? Make it special by engraving the date, initials or a short quote and your child will have something to hold with them for years.

Celebration days

Whether it’s a christening, Mother’s Day or a new job, there are many excuses to get your wallet out and show someone the love with silver. A party or celebration dinner is a given, but add the extra special touch with a gift to be cherished too. Celebrate the special person in your life and gift them with jewellery, a trinket box or money bank – perfect as a christening gift – a decorative bowl, photo frame with a favourite photo or something more personal to the recipient like a silver plated tea caddy for the tea lover in your life.

Whatever the occasion and whoever the receiver, there will always be a reason to celebrate and share a thoughtful silver gift that will no doubt be appreciated and admired for years to come.
