The Gift Giving Guide

Mother’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations, bridal showers, baby showers, Eid, Ramadan, Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa and much more! What do all these occasions have in common?

Yep, a token of appreciation! These are all times when we recognize a person we care for and show our appreciation for them.

Gift giving, or shopping for one, doesn’t always come easy, and if you are unsure about what to give someone then providing him or her with a self-care opportunity is the way to go.

I often times forget to get a massage, pamper myself with a manicure or pedicure, ease the stress of shaving to book an appointment for a wax or thread, escape to a spa, experience the luxury of a body scrub, Korean hip bath, or Turkish hammam. I am extremely thankful when I receive a gift that allows me the opportunity to show my body some TLC!

I know wrapping a gift card can be a dull present and that is why pairing it with a couple of polishes makes it more meaningful and sentimental. Here are a few, simple, and helpful tips for pairing the perfect polishes to make the best gift ever:

  1. Combining Concrete with Abstract:

Polish is a concrete item one can keep and remember you! I like pairing concrete gifts with abstract ones, like a gift card (now-a-days they're online and not an actually card), because I feel like it shows how much I thought about what to get and the time I took to find it. The person retrieving the gift will have unforgettable memories and experiences of the self-care routine they were given and you will be the person to thank.

  1. Play Matchmaker:

Imagine receiving a couple bottles of nail polish with a Starbucks gift card. Strange combo, right? Play matchmaker and keep the gifts within a specific theme. Also, keep the gift keeper in mind because you’re shopping for them and not yourself.

  1. Be Basic:

Our most popular colors are Daydreamer, Nonchalant, and Elope to the Eiffel Tower. Check em out below! All three of these shades are flat, neutral colors that appeal with any skin tone. These polishes last up to 2 weeks on your nails and can be used at any nail salon! All you have to do is take your own polish with you. Choosing basic colors that attracts all skin tones prevents someone from disliking the color you chose. You can also, always go with an even more basic option; our In A Hurry top coat. This is a clear, topcoat polish that can be applied to any nail enamel and will have your nails dry in less than 5-minutes. I have never sealed my color with anything other than In A Hurry. It is truly a lifesaver and the most sold item at Júwon Enamel.
