Gift Ideas for Someone Special

Rose Gold Rainbow Moonstone Necklace Full Moon Tree of Life Pendant Wire Wrapped Jewelry by PhoenixFire Designs

It’s always hard to find the perfect Christmas gift. Every year, each holiday season, people struggle to find gifts for all the people on their gift lists. (Also check out our Gift Guide for some of the hard to shop for people such as teachers, coworkers, and more here for more suggestions and ideas!)

The hardest though can definitely be the people most important to us; our loved ones such as wives, girlfriends, mothers, sisters and family.

You always want to go the extra distance and get something extra special for the people you love the most and finding something they truly love and can enjoy can be difficult. Well, don’t worry! Because PhoenixFire Designs is here to help!

For more than ten years, we’ve offered amazing quality, luxury and beauty with our line of 100% handmade, artisan jewelry. Each piece is made by hand, from scratch by me personally. This ensures not only that each piece will be unique, but that there’s real love and a decade of skill in each pendant. I’ve worked hard to hone and refine my techniques to provide you with lasting jewelry of superior beauty.

What do I get my wife for Christmas? / What do I buy my girlfriend for Christmas?

I have a whole line of high-end, luxury, designer gifts in my shop that are perfect for the extra special people in your life like your wife, girlfriend, significant other, mother, partner, daughter, sister or someone who loves unique artisan jewelry. Made from the most premium precious metals and precious and semi-precious gemstones, these are the creme de la creme of beautiful gifts.

Tanzanite is uniquely gorgeous gemstone, with a striking blue-violet color. It’s a popular gemstone for it’s rare beauty and it’s the kind of gemstone you can give as a gift for someone who understands quality and is looking for something special and unique.

Chrome Diopside is an even more exclusively rare gemstone. It’s not something a lot of people know about and few own. Because it’s found only in remote Siberia, Russia, it can only be mined a handful of months each year when the ground unfreezes long enough to access it. It’s the most stunning emerald green color. All natural and not color enhanced in anyway, this amazing green gemstone is unlike anything else in the world.

These striking Full Moon tree of life pendants feature massive 16mm natural, blue flash rainbow moonstone coin beads I have custom cut just for my PhoenixFire Designs shop. Each is handmade to order in either a striking black wire, or an eco-friendly, recycled Argentium sterling silver that is nickel-free and slow to tarnish with all the beauty of traditional sterling.

Ombre or a color gradation from light to dark (or dark to light) has been a popular on-trend look in fashion for several years now. You can also get this effect with gemstones such as my 14k gf yellow gold Ruby tree of life pendant. With shaded ruby ranging from a pink sapphire through to the deepest crimson red, this tree spans the stunning range of precious ruby gems.

What to buy for someone who likes dainty or simple jewelry? / Dainty Jewelry gift ideas? / Simple, elegant jewelry gift ideas?

Some people prefer smaller, dainty jewelry. Understated jewelry, simple elegant necklaces, everyday jewelry, or classic, timeless style jewelry. My miniature freshwater pearl tree of life pendant is the perfect example of that. Timeless classic pearls in a small, dainty, elegant 14k gf yellow gold setting.

What do I buy my kid’s teacher for Christmas?

Not everyone will look for teacher’s gifts but for those who are looking might enjoy a play on the traditional “apple for teacher” idea! Why give your child’s teacher a single apple when a whole apple tree is a much more whimsical and fun take on the idea. This fruit tree also serves a sweet representation of planting the seed of knowledge and watching it bloom.

What do I buy my Mom? / What’s a good gift for a new Mom? / Christmas gift ideas for Moms?

When it comes to getting a gift for Mom, why not celebrate her and her family? By getting her something unique, customized and personalized with birthstones of her children, it becomes extra personal and special. Or, if she’s a new mom, why not get her something sweet to announce the new addition to the family?

Nowadays, many new moms are often given what’s known as “push gifts” or “push presents” as a way to celebrate the birth of the new baby; marking the momentous occasion of the birth with a gift to celebrate nine long months waiting for the new arrival!

For the Mom who prefers a more dainty, understated necklace, this unbroken circle or eternity pendant personalized with family birthstones makes a wonderful and sublte way to celebrate family.

Dainty Circle Family Birthstone Necklace

For the first time Mom or new Mom, why not a sweet bird nest pendant, announcing It’s a Girl! or It’s a Boy! with a little pink or blue egg nestled in the wire wrapped bird’s nest?

For the mom with a larger family, how about a Family Tree? Handmade from scratch and customized with your choice of branches and birthstones, each tree is a unique representation of your family! You can even have a multigenerational family tree including grandparents, parents, and grandchildren all together in one beautiful and deeply meaningful pendant.

What do I get for my Yoga Teacher? / What do I get for my Massage Therapist? / What’s a good gift idea for my Yoga instructor?

It’s important to really find something unique and special for yoga instructors, your masseuse, lightworkers, healers or the ladies in your wellness center or spa. More so than most, a big-box, mass produced item just isn’t going to cut it. These women have a different mindset and greater appreciation of the artistic.

Perhaps something celebrating chakra or the spirituality of a rainbow of colors – each with a deep, whole body meaning.

What do I get for the hard to shop for person? / What’s a unique Christmas gift idea? / What do I get someone who loves space, astrology, astronomy or celestial images?

There’s often that one person on your list who’s very hard to shop for! The person who defies conventional gift ideas, or who has broad, unique and diverse interests that are hard to pin down to a single gift. In those instances, I say you think outside the box. Opt for something really unique and special; something no one else is going to have; something that will draw attention, attract a sense of wonder, and provide a sense of awe.

Might I suggest my glow in the dark full moon tree of life necklace? It’s just unique enough to be special and yet be the perfect gift for so many people on your holiday shopping list.

What do I get someone who loves owls?

I have the perfect suggestion: a full moon tree of life pendant with a copper owl nestled in the branches! It’s available in multiple wire color combinations too! Would also be a wonderful gift for a Harry Potter fan – I know I love the owls including Hedwig! – and an owl full moon tree makes a magical gift.

Wolves are always a popular motif and there’s any number of unique wolf gift ideas out there. But what about something truly different? I have a handmade, glow in the dark full moon tree with howling wolf charm pendant which combines a love of the night sky, the full moon and the beauty and majesty of a lone wolf singing out into the night.

I need a Christmas Gift Set / What’s a good jewelry set for Christmas? / Easy, ready to give gift set for Christmas?

Sometimes, it’s just easier if a gift is already nicely put together into a gift set. Especially a coordinating jewelry set where you know all the pieces match. A pendant, a necklace and matching earrings – all in one, all ready to give. Even gift wrapped if you prefer! I have a few gift sets all combined together into one easy to purchase listing. These bonus gift sets also are a great value, giving you not only a gift wrapped and ready to give set, but an instant 10% savings vs buying separately!

My number one best-selling opalite moonstone full moon tree is available in this instant savings gift set, complete with necklace and earrings with optional faux bois woodgrain gift wrap for easy gift giving.
