When I started thinking more seriously about heading into the professional realm, I realized that I needed to update my jewelry. I had been wearing fun costume jewelry for years, but it wasn't resonating with the people that I worked with or my clients. It was really frustrating, so I decided to head shopping to update my collection. It was amazing to see how big of a difference a nice new necklace and some conservative earrings made. This website is all about finding great jewelry that fits within your budget and your wardrobe. Check out this blog for more information.
If your loved one is Native American and you want to show appreciation for their heritage, buying them a special gift is a great idea. Choose from these four ideas for thoughtful Native American gifts:
Native American Jewelry
Native American jewelry is beautiful and comes in a wide range of prices to fit your budget. Plus, jewelry is a practical gift because it takes up very little space and your loved one will be able to wear it as often as they want.
Native American jewelry includes rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, often featuring special totems, animals, or symbols that are meaningful to a specific tribe. For this reason, you may want to research the important symbols of your loved one's tribe before purchasing jewelry.
Woven Native American Rugs or Blankets
Many Native American tribes have a rich tradition of beautiful, handcrafted textiles, especially blankets and rugs. Buying your loved one a rug or blanket made from an artisan of their tribe is a lovely gesture and they will think of you every time they use or look at the item. Keep your loved one's design taste and the color scheme of their home in mind before you choose a woven rug or blanket. If you decide to buy an antique woven rug, you may wish to have it framed so it can be admired while hanging on the wall, instead of being subject to normal wear and tear.
A Meaningful Book or Movie
If your loved one enjoys reading or watching meaningful films, why not buy them a book or movie that helps them learn more about Native American history and culture? This list of books and this list of documentaries are great sources of inspiration. To make this gift even more thoughtful, why not read the book or watch the movie on your own as well, so that you can have interesting conversations afterward.
A Native American Celebration
In addition to a physical gift, you may also want to plan to surprise your loved one with a visit to a fun and culturally important Native American event. Look for festivals, pow wows, seasonal celebrations, or dances in your area that are open to the public. You will create a meaningful new memory together and learn more about Native American culture at the same time.
Buying your Native American loved one a gift that celebrates their culture and heritage is a thoughtful way to show how much you care. Contact a company like Turquoise Skies for more information and assistance.Share
