Whether you enjoy feasting on delicious food or surprising your loved ones with meaningful gifts, the holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year. However, this year it’s important to get started on your holiday shopping early so you don’t miss out on finding that perfect gift or piece of jewelry.
To encourage you to plan ahead, we’ve highlighted 6 reasons to shop for the holidays now at deJonghe Original Jewelry in downtown Saratoga.
Demand Is High for Custom Jewelry Projects
Family gatherings are a special part of the holiday season because they give us an opportunity to spend time and exchange gifts with the people we care about the most. If you’re wondering what to purchase this year, then consider custom-made jewelry, such as a stunning necklace or pendant, classic earrings, or even a birthstone bracelet.
Over the past year, we’ve seen an increase in demand for custom jewelry for a variety of reasons, such as celebrating a loved one and an increase in engagement rings. Due to this high demand, we encourage you to begin thinking about what would make an excellent gift for the jewelry wearer in your family.
Be Aware of Supply Chain Shortages & Holiday Shipping Delays
Everywhere you look, news outlets have been discussing how supply chain shortages and shipping delays are expected for this holiday season. It’s already a busy time of year, and experts advise shoppers to make their purchases as soon as possible. You don’t want to wait until the last minute and learn that special gift you had in mind is sold out.
Luckily we are in the unique position of creating and manufacturing all of our jewelry in-house so we have more control. But our raw materials (gold, gemstones, etc.) are becoming harder to source.
If you don’t live in Saratoga Springs then shipping will need to be arranged. Plan your purchases early to give extra time for shipping.
Shop Early for the Best Selection of New & Unique Jewelry
To keep up with the increased demand from November through December, we’re planning to add new jewelry to our cases each week, including beautiful pieces from our 2021 Holiday Jewelry Collection. We recommend you visit our store early in the season for the best selection, and make sure you ask our staff questions about any specific jewelry that catches your attention. Our goal is to keep our inventory stocked and provide you with a successful shopping experience.
Avoid the Crowds and Last-Minute Shoppers
Do you want to make the holiday season less stressful and avoid crowds of shoppers? You can beat the holiday rush this year by making your gift list now and shopping early. The COVID-19 pandemic is still a concern, and heading out to the stores before the larger crowds will help you maintain social distancing. Or, if you know what you’d like but don’t want to visit in person, give us a call or shop all of our jewelry collections online. We can arrange shipping or even offer free local delivery.
Walking in a Winter Wonderland: Snow Could Arrive Early in Saratoga
When snow falls in Saratoga Springs, the area transforms into a beautiful winter wonderland. However, a snowy downtown can make it difficult to find parking, and just last year, we had a major snowstorm on December 17. Plan your shopping trip to deJonghe Original Jewelry and your other favorite stores while the weather is still nice. And why not lean into the weather by gifting a snowflake charm/pendant?
Shop Now, Spend Quality Time with the Family Throughout the Season
The holiday season is all about spending quality time with your family and friends. By finishing your gift shopping early, you’ll be able to have fun together, attend some festive events in the area, and relax before the holidays finally arrive. It’s a win-win situation!
