Now that the food comas have worn off, many of us are in a panic to finish shopping for those perfect gifts for loved ones. Here in the Cleveland, Ohio area, this can be a bit daunting. Shoppers have to deal with things like potholes, lack of parking, and even some pretty crazy weather. (Knock on wood....So far, we've had no real "winter weather". It's coming, though. It always does!)
Kids are fairly easy to shop for. Toys, video games, books....They're a dime a dozen, and available pretty much everywhere. Guys are equally simple. Follow the rules for the kids and just add an extra 0 to the price tag, and you're sure to get it right. (This is expert advice from my 38 year old man-child.)
What about those special ladies in your life? Mothers, wives, sisters, or maybe even a soon-to-be fiance? The Holiday season is the perfect time to pop that all important question, after all!
You get where I'm going with this, right? Yep. One fail proof way to make the holidays brighter than ever for the ladies in your life is to get them something that sparkles and shines. You can NEVER go wrong with the gift of jewelry!
Here are 5 reasons why Clevelanders should buy their jewelry from a well-established local jeweler such as Howard's Jewelry Center.
1. When you choose a smaller, local chain, you get more personalized attention.
Shopping at Howard's gives me the ability to see what I'm getting before I make a purchase. I can get up close and personal with the jewelry, and even look at the stones through a jeweler's loupe. Shopping for jewelry online, especially when considering diamonds, just isn't worth the risk of disappointment. At Howard's, what you see is exactly what you get. As it should be!
Since 2000, Howard's Jewelry Center has been an active supporter of the Jewelers for Children charity fund. Howard has personally served as a board member, and our company proudly donates a minimum of $10,000 on an annual basis to the charity. Howard’s Jewelry Center also hosts an annual ‘Make a Wish Day’, where they donate a portion of that day’s sales towards our local chapter.
Through these efforts, the lives of thousands of children and their families are touched and benefited by Howard's commitment to them.
Howard's also contributes to the following causes:
- Autism Speaks
- St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
- Make A Wish Foundation
- Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation
So great deals, a certified, expert staff, jewelry repairs, and a business that gives back?! There's really no reason NOT to head over to Howard's if you're in the Cleveland, Ohio area!
While you're there, feel free to pick me up something nice for Christmas, since I know my husband won't. (Diamonds. I love diamonds!)
