Christmas time is here, and as the season unfolds, many gift-givers flood our inboxes. The main query? Seeking inspiration on what to gift their ocean-loving friends and family.
Last year, we presented a comprehensive guide on selecting the perfect jewelry. This time around, however, we’re taking a different approach. We asked our team a straightforward yet meaningful question: If you had to pick two ocean pieces to gift a loved one, which ones would you choose and why? Their responses became the foundation for this guide.
Here, you have a compilation of ideas for gifts tailored to a friend, daughter, wife, and mother. Our aim is to inspire you to discover personal significance in each piece. Without further delay, we’re excited to present our 2023 Christmas Ocean & Beach Jewelry Gift Guide.
Gift Guide for Your Mom
Choosing a Christmas present for your mom can be challenging, especially if she already has everything or if she deserves something extra special, like jewelry. However, sentimental pieces always make an excellent choice.
Take Alan, our sales director, for example. He suggests gifting his mom the Aqua Mom & Baby Starfish Pendan . According to Alan, “It’s such an elegant piece for a truly one-of-a-kind lady. It also represents so much of what my mom means to me, solidifying our deep connection.”
Leigh, our Account and IT director, also has a gift idea for his mom, Liz. He says, “I would gift the Gold Vermeil Mother and Baby Pearl Necklace to my mom because she shows me where to go.”
Discovering the ideal gift for your mom is as simple as reflecting on the sentiment and what she evokes in your heart. There is no room for error in choosing the perfect gift.

Gift Guide for Your Wife
Contemplating how to pleasantly amaze your wife with a unique and meaningful gift this year? Instead of regular jewelry, opt for something more meaningful for a jewelry lover. Choose a piece that has a special story and is more than just beautiful.
Take Shane, our Managing Director, for instance; he would gift his wife the Blue Wave Pendant with Aqua Crystals. His reason? A reference to their honeymoon when they spent days surfing the waves.
Shane’s choice isn’t just about the past; it’s a reminder for his wife, Sharon, of a cherished memory they share. I would add that waves symbolize a marriage’s journey—full of ups and downs. Yet, with the right person by your side, you learn to surf and conquer the waves together.
Consider presenting your wife with wave jewelry for Christmas. It can serve as a poignant reminder of a memorable beach vacation or honeymoon. Additionally, it symbolizes your shared resilience in navigating each new phase of life together.

Gift Guide for Your Daughter
I absolutely cherish the moments when fathers reach out, seeking ideas on how to gift their daughters. Recently, a dad wanted to upgrade his daughter’s favorite piece to a gold one, and for me, it was a truly beautiful gesture.
Reflecting on my own experience, I vividly remember the first jewelry my dad gave me. It became a significant and special gift—a graduation set with earrings, a necklace, and a ring.
If you’re considering gifting your daughter jewelry this year, I recommend selecting something that carries special significance. Choose something that goes beyond her personal taste, perhaps aligning with her interests, like surfing.
Take Alan, our Sales Director; he would give his daughter our 14K Gold Vermeil Mother of Pearl Sun Necklace. His reason? He wants to convey that she is the light of his life—a bright and beautiful young lady whose personality shines brilliantly every day.
Choosing a piece that reflects what your daughter means to you is a powerful gesture. Below, you’ll find a selection of pieces that can encapsulate these sentiments.

Gift Ideas for Your Sister
Whether you have an older or younger sister, jewelry makes for a fantastic Christmas gift. It not only symbolizes the bond you share but can also reflect what she means to you.
Consider Lina, our Head of Marketing, for example. She envisions gifting her sister, Ángel María, the Sterling Silver Mother of Pearl Sun Pendant with White Crystals and Rose Gold. Lina’s wish is for her little sister always to remember that she embodies light, brightening the lives of those around her.
Similarly, Lourdes, our Sales & Marketing Executive, would choose the Rose Gold Turtle Pendant with Aqua Crystals for her sister. She explains that the bigger and smaller turtles resonate with the two of them. In Lourdes’ words, they are “apart yet always moving forward together, on the same path.”

Gift Ideas for Your Friend
As a lady residing away from my home country, my closest bonds still lie with childhood friends. Whenever I get the chance, I like to gift them jewelry as a reminder of our enduring friendship, also as a way to keep me close to their hearts.
For my best childhood friends, I’d personally choose the 14K Gold Vermeil Anchor Necklace with Cubic Zirconias. I believe that friends should provide stability and positive influence to me. They anchor and ground us in times of challenges. These friends of mine do just that—they keep me rooted and true to my values.
Consider selecting something cute for your friend that captures a shared memory. For example, the Pineapple Ocean Necklace reminds me of the days a dear friend and I spent by the beach, sipping piña coladas. Look into your shared memories to find what connects you, and for inspiration, check out the list below.
