How to Choose a Personal (And Thoughtful) Gift

The best way to give a thoughtful gift is to choose something personal, that’s a reflection of your loved one’s style or personality. So whether you’re searching for a birthday giftgraduation giftfriendship jewellery, or making a gesture just because, here are the top four ways to choose a gift that’s special, personal, and thoughtful. 

Initial Jewellery

Initial jewellery is a simple and beautiful way to give your loved one a gift that’s personal to them. An initial pendant is perfect for wearing on its own, or layered with other necklaces, to add that individual touch to their look. Initial pendants are also perfect as best friend necklaces, mother-daughter jewellery, or jewellery for sisters if you buy one for them and one for you.   

At Michael Hill, we have a range of chic initial jewellery, including 10ktgold initial pendants, diamond initial necklaces, and gold pendants adorned with diamond initials.

Birthstone Jewellery

Birthstone jewellery gifts are a beautiful way to give something personal, as well as meaningful. There’s a unique gemstone associated with each month of the year, from January’s garnet to December's Tanzanite, and each gem has its own unique symbolism which is believed to resonate with people born in the same month.  

There are so many options for birthstone jewellery gifts, with our wide range of gemstone earrings, pendants, rings, and bracelets. Discover your loved one’s birthstone, then choose a gift that’s unique to them and that they’ll treasure for life.
