With all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it can become all too easy to forget to buy a gift for the most important woman in your life—your wife! It's not because you don't care, because obviously, you do (you DID marry her!). Sometimes the time just gets away from you, but she doesn't have to know that.

Prep Work for Last Minute Shopping

Shopping for your wife may be difficult to begin with, but shopping last minute can be even more difficult! There are so many things to choose from, but buying something for her that means more —that's priceless.

If you're stumped for ideas, may we suggest a classic gift? Jewelry! No matter what she likes, there's a piece out there that she'll love (and she'll never have to know that you found it at the last minute!)

But first, you'll want to ask yourself these questions to ensure you're on the right track:

  • Are her ears pierced? If so, what types does she typically like to wear- studs, hoops, or dangling earrings?
  • Does she like to wear bracelets? If so, what kind of bracelet could be a great addition to her collection?
  • Does she enjoy wearing necklaces? If so, does she like them simple or intricate?
  • Does she like to wear rings besides her engagement ring and wedding band? If so, would she appreciate a custom-made ring to add to her collection?

Unsure of the answer to some of these questions? Here are a few tips on how to get your answers:

  • It's a good start to pay attention to what she is already wearing on a day-to-day basis. You'll get an idea of what her favorite pieces are.
  • Take a look at where she keeps her jewelry. She will probably have pieces across the spectrum from day-to-day to formal wear pieces. 
  • Ask her friends or family for advice.
  • Talk to a jewelry consultant at your local Grogan Jewelers. If you describe her style, they will be able to help you find a piece she will love.

Types of Jewelry To Choose From


There's nothing quite like earrings that make a woman feel beautiful. They are the perfect addition to dress up any outfit. There is a huge range of earrings available—from studs to hoops, diamonds to sapphires, you'll be able find something that matches her style perfectly. Earrings are classic gifts for a reason: Many women wear them everyday, and a beautiful pair of diamond studs or a unique pair of dangly earrings with her favorite gemstone might just be the perfect addition to her wardrobe.  Small hoops are also a great option for women who like to wear earrings but don't often wear larger ones. 


Not every woman likes bracelets, but there are many styles available for those who do. If your wife already wears bracelets, or has expressed interest in doing so, consider giving her something special this year. Tennis bracelets are classic, though may be too dressy to wear every day. A small chain bracelet in a metal she already wears could be just the right thing for elevate her day to day style—and something she'll be proud to show off. There are also pendant bracelets and options with different gemstones. Chat with your local jeweler to find the right fit. 


Giving a woman a necklace makes her feel like you've crowned her queen. It can be a statement piece or a gentle kiss of a piece upon her neck. There are tons of different types of necklaces out there, from statement pieces to pendants to gemstones—just be sure it fits her lifestyle, style, and that it is meaningful for you both. Just because it's last minute doesn't mean it should be thoughtless!

The beauty of rings is that they tell a story. An engagement ring with a wedding band tells a story of commitment. Other rings can tell stories too, but what stories they tell is up to you! Many husbands buy their wives an anniversary ring, but unless your anniversary falls on Christmas, it's probably not the right time for that. However, if you do want to get her something she can wear stacked with her wedding and engagement rings, you definitely should! In that case, instead of going by anniversary ring traditions, find something that will match her wedding ring. 

If you're buying her a ring, be aware of where you anticipate she'll wear it (as in, her right ring finger or an index finger) and be sure to figure out her size! While she can definitely bring it in to be resized, it's best to get the right size from the beginning so she can actually enjoy it right away. Start looking for the perfect ring here
