The holidays are just around the corner, which means it’s time to start shopping for Christmas gifts for that special someone. While she may be the expert of gift buying - the type of person who knows exactly what everyone on your list will love - you find that you tend to wander the mall aimlessly trying to find the perfect gift. But here’s the thing; buying the perfect gift isn’t about buying the most expensive thing on her list. It’s about putting in the time and energy into finding the romantic gift she didn't know she wanted. Lucky for you, Lisa Marie Kotchey Designs - the leader is custom jewelry Pittsburgh - is here to break down the 7 perfect gifts for her this holiday season that she’ll be sure to cherish and remember for years to come.

The gift you can never go wrong with? Jewelry, of course. The holidays are the perfect time to give her jewelry and give her something that she can wear that will always remind her of you. Whether you choose a set of earrings and a necklace that feels just right for her or custom jewelry made by a local small business in Pittsburgh, be sure to take the time to ensure the use of quality metals and beautiful stones, all of which is possible to do without breaking the bank. This way, she’ll have a piece of jewelry that will last and last.

Meal Subscription Box

Spend Time Together Cooking Meals from a Subscription Box

The fastest way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach. While a meal subscription box may seem like an obvious answer for a gift she’ll love, there’s so much more to this thoughtful gift than getting to try out new foods. Meal subscription boxes can be an extremely romantic gift when presented with the goal of cooking meals together. This quality time spent together will give you the chance to grow together, learn more about each other, and bond over some delicious food. Find that you’re too busy to cook together? Get a meal subscription box and cook her delicious meals when she’s busy that are simple and easy for you to follow. Either way, she’ll appreciate the effort put in on the thoughtful gift.

Redesigned Heirloom Jewelry

Make Custom Jewelry Pittsburgh Out of a Family Heirloom

One of the best ways to show her that you’re in it for the long haul is to surprise her with a piece of custom heirloom jewelry. The idea here is the redesign of a family heirloom - your grandmother’s bracelet or the first necklace her father purchased for her mother - and turn it into a custom piece designed for her. Starting with a simple vision, Lisa Marie Kotchey Designs can help you create a custom piece of jewelry that holds a lot of significance in your family while still being stylish and not out-of-date like the original piece may be. Whether you’re thinking of creating a necklace or bracelet, promise ring, or a custom engagement ring this holiday season, reworking a piece of heirloom money is the perfect way to save money while giving her a truly meaningful piece of jewelry.

Decorative Homeware

The Simple and Romantic Gift for the Home


One of the best last-minute gifts you can choose is a unique set of homeware. Homeware with a unique twist is the perfect gift because it will be used frequently and can allude to seeing a future with one another. Best of all, stores like Anthropologie and small boutiques across Pittsburgh make beautiful and unique houseware that she’ll love. Easy to pick up from the store and wrap up, this will feel like the gift you’ve had planned for months even if it’s a bit of a last-minute thought.


Let Your Love Grow with Plants for the Home


Bringing plants into the home is one of the biggest trends in design and lifestyle among young people. Not only are plants as gifts a great way to give her a constant reminder of you, but help liven up a living space and make her feel more at home. Pittsburgh is full of great little plant shops like City Grows and the Shadyside Nursery, both of which have a wide variety of succulents, indoor plants, and pottery to give her a plant she’ll love to take care of for years to come.

Custom Candle

Create a Candle that Reminds You of Her

Candle Lab

Any gift that you design yourself is guaranteed to be a romantic gesture. Combine this idea with the fact that women love cozying-up with a candle during the holidays, and you have the perfect gift. Head down to the Candle Lab and create a candle that reminds you of her. Channel the smells of her perfume, the place you went on your first date, or simply something that reminds you of her and mix a candle just for her. Not sure this is your strong suit? Go to the Candle Lab together and design candles for one another with the same principle in mind.

Couple’s Photoshoot

Plan a Couple’s Photoshoot with a Sweet Surprise from the Leader in Custom Jewelry Pittsburgh

One of the best romantic gifts for her this holiday season is planning a couple’s photoshoot with a professional photographer. She’ll have a blast planning the outfits and venue for the shoot, interacting with you in front of the camera, and sharing the photos on social media. On top of this, she’ll love having photos of the two of you to cherish for years to come. Pro tip: if you’re looking for a way to pop the question this holiday season, this is the perfect way to make sure you capture the moment on camera without being too obvious about it.
