Gifts Under $500 for a Savvy Shopper

For as long as I can remember I have loved giving gifts. I take time and find exactly what each of my family members and close friends will absolutely love. But I always give the best gifts to myself.

I recently finished my summer school course for my MBA with an A, so I thought I would treat myself with a “Congratulations!” gift. I am a self proclaimed savvy self shopper; I did my research and found the best items for under $500 at Meigs Jewelry.

ksd gifts

  1. Gifts for My Inner Fashionista

I thought I would start with one of the hottest jewelry trends right now. I have been on the hunt for the perfect statement necklace. The Kendra Scott Harlow necklace has statement written all over it. I even was able to snag a pair of earrings to match and stay below my budget. I chose the Harlow necklace in the Raw Cut Lapis as well as the Brinkley bracelet and Elle earrings. My grand total was $335. I guess that means I can get a dress to match my new KSD!

levian gifts

  1. Gifts for My Fashion Forward Side

Yes, you can certainly get a fabulous line like Le Vian for under $500. I’m maxing out my budget on this one, totaling $499. It is the perfect ring to start my Le Vian collection. It features Strawberry Gold and their signature Chocolate Diamonds. What I love about buying a piece of Le Vian is their trade up program. Right before Christmas, Meigs Jewelry holds a Le Vian trunk show. The entire store is filled with Le Vian jewelry. I can bring my birthday ring and they give me exactly what I paid for it and I can trade it up for something brand new that is at least $500 more. Merry Christmas to me!

WH gifts

  1. Gifts for the Stylish Guys

Okay, I know I’m shopping for me. But I know all the guys out there would like to buy something for themselves as well. So I did a quick peruse around the store to find what a man could buy himself for under $500. I found some of the coolest things that look much more expensive than $500. William Henry makes handmade knives here in the United States as well as money clips and pens. I found a truly unique money clip that is inlaid with actual coral and black spinels. This one rings up at $495.

studs gift

  1. Gifts for my Glam Side

A true investment that can be made at Meigs Jewelry is to get a pair of diamond studs. Diamond studs are gifts that never go out of style and can be worn any and every day. Set in 18 karat white gold, our ¼ carat total weight diamond studs are right at $499. My favorite thing about our diamond studs is the trade up program. We will give you exactly what you paid for your first pair towards you second pair, and you just pay the difference. On my next shopping spree I can upgrade to the ½ carat total weight earrings for only $600! Don’t you love seeing things grow, especially diamonds!!

 

Well I honestly can’t choose which one I want to get as my “Congratulations!” gift! If only I could buy them all… Next time you need a gift for a loved one or even for yourself, be sure to stop by Meigs Jewelry to get something special!
