Tips for Choosing Charming Last Minute Gifts

COLUMBIA, Md., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Last minute shopping doesn't have to mean giving a non-personal gift thanks to international fine jewelry company, PANDORA. According to the National Retail Federation (NRF), the average American is only half-done with his holiday shopping by mid-December, with many waiting until the very last minute to complete the gift-buying process.


Jewelry remains a popular Christmas item this year, with the NRF reporting that nearly one-quarter (24%) of people are requesting jewelry — the most seen since 2008. The following are suggestions to choose a personal and thoughtful gift this holiday season.

  • Browse online, but shop in-store — Even though expects online holiday shopping to grow by 12 percent this year, there is no guarantee the gifts will arrive on time. Plus you will most likely pay almost as much for expedited shipping as the gift. It's worth the extra effort to go into a store and speak with a salesperson who can assist in choosing just the right gift for that special someone. Be prepared to answer questions about the gift recipient: favorite color, style, hobbies and interests.
  • Add a sentimental twist to the gift — PANDORA charms and other jewelry pieces celebrate each woman, her style and unforgettable moments. Make this year's charm all the more special by including a handwritten note of why you selected the piece and what makes her so special.
  • Create a holiday gifting tradition — A personal piece of jewelry, such as a PANDORA charm bracelet, provides a gift that can be added to every holiday for years to come.  Each year you have the opportunity to capture favorite shared memories and commemorate special achievements. It's a gift that keeps giving for both the giver and the receiver.
  • Give her the gift of shopping — Gift cards are this season's hottest gift according to the NRF, due to their convenience and flexibility, but they can feel impersonal. Make it special by choosing a gift card that allows her to make a bracelet as unique as her. A PANDORA Gift Card can be used at any authorized PANDORA retailer across the U.S., and will be a favorite stocking stuffer for the women on your list.

"Choosing a thoughtful gift for the holidays can be challenging, especially if you're under pressure from waiting until the last minute," said Angel Ilagan, vice president, Marketing, PANDORA, North America. "At PANDORA, we try and make the process as easy as possible, with limitless possibilities to create a gift as unique as the woman you're buying for. Consumers in need of a little extra help can also visit our PANDORA Gift Advisor [], which will guide them through selecting meaningful charms for the special women in their lives."


For 30 years, PANDORA has been making its mark in the international fine jewelry industry and is world-renowned for its high-quality, hand finished designs made from genuine materials at affordable prices. The collections inspire women to embrace their individuality with romantic and feminine pieces that capture the unforgettable moments of life. The strength of the PANDORA charm bracelet is the detailed design, the high quality and the unique threaded bracelet system (U.S. Pat. No. 7,007,507).
