Wish List! Unique Personal Gift Ideas For Christmas 2020

Wish List! Unique Personal Gift Ideas For Christmas 2020
I love receiving gifts that have a personal touch or a story behind them. From experience, I know others like receiving gifts like this also. This year especially, I believe people are craving something with thought behind it, a story behind it or made by hand with love. A gift with a personal touch and sentiment.

I have been collecting names of vendors and artists this past year that stood out from the crowd. Especially in support of local businesses. I am all about supporting local and made in America! I was looking for items that made me feel good. I think we all need some warm and fuzzy feels this holiday season. 

 I am looking forward to cooking and baking more. Well maybe not more than during the shut down but you know what I mean. Time to hang with family and friends, go crazy with decorations, trees, and lights, eat, drink and be merry. I want some traditional Christmas and holiday nostalgia this year! Bring out the snow globes, Nutcrackers, train sets and ceramic Christmas villages, Oh My! Yep, I think I will vomit Christmas traditions all over the house this year. 

Too much? Well, to each her own. How about I share my top unique gift ideas for Christmas. My list is for adult men and women. I don't have kids so I am not going to pretend what I think they want. 

Don't forgot that the all mail carriers this year are predicting slower than normal deliveries so plan ahead!!


1 - Not Just Any Soap -
Durty Gurl Flair - Amazing handmade soaps by Teresa Bruner, a friend and fellow member of a business coaching community we are both part of. The rich smells, luxurious feel and gorgeous colors and textures make these soaps unique and the best gifts for anyone on your list.

 2 - Something Personal

3 - Light My Fire

Vida Verde Candles - A new brick and mortar store in Stanwood, Wa near my home is this lovely mercantile and candle shop. The owner makes the candles in house at the shop. Many are soy based and for those sensitive to smells she has a line of unscented luxury. Check out the adorable shop in person too when in the area.

4 - For Your Man

If you know a man in your life that likes to wear bracelets I bet he will love the stainless steel beaded leather bracelets we make. We turn our own steel beads on a lathe, an old screw machine, leaving the tooling marks on the beads for texture. The shackle buckle clasp is adjustable and can be plain or engraved with a US Flag or SOWW logo (Special Operations Wounded Warriors) We donate a portion of our sales to SOWW, an amazing organization.

5 - Jewelry Clutch

One of my new fave companies out there is Franki Ray. Two best friends teamed up to create a limited line of gorgeous leather wallets, clutches, duffels, backpack and briefcases. I bought a wallet awhile back for myself and I am hooked. The best part is how much fun these two besties are having. When you see their products you will understand why. This item the Treasure Trove Jewelry Clutch is perfect for transporting your collection of RudyBlu Jewelry too. (Hint hint)

6 - Living Well Planner

I love writing my goals and dreams out on a daily basis. It just makes you feel good! Try it. To make it fun and easy is the Living Well Planner. I have been using mine for two years now. The books are colorful and well thought out as a daily and monthly calendar and goal setting project. It really is hard not to feel motivated and organized with this planner. Does not matter when you start it. You make up your own calendar.

HELLO 2020!! New Jewelry Collections From RudyBlu!

HELLO 2020!! New Jewelry Collections From RudyBlu!

Wow! A new decade? Where did the last year go let alone the last decade? So many wonderful and difficult challenges that are a memory now. But I will carry those memories and lessons with me forever. In a good way. Even at the age of 53 I am still growing and learning mentally. I love this. It is never too late to start over or begin a new hobby, career, relocation, or lifestyle. I have had all of those activities happening the past year alone! Makes life interesting right? I personally am looking forward to the next year and beyond and seeing where life takes me and RudyBlu Jewelry in these adventures. 

widebandgoldringwithhugeemeraldcutbluetopazrudyblujewelryI am chomping at the bit to get two new jewelry lines out in the world. I have a High Jewelry Collection available later this month influenced by my mom's original wedding ring. I say original because about 15 years ago she did not know her ring fell down the sink in to the disposal. And yep, she ground it in to pieces. It was a wide band with a basket weave pattern and little diamond and sapphire stones around it. The gold was pretty thin and not strong enough to withstand the garbage disposal. She kept the pieces thinking some day she would have it remade but never did. Dad did get her a lovely new ring so not to worry! I have the original ring pieces now after she passed away this year. I just recently had the design and molds finished for the 2020 version of this ring. (Photo at left is the first new ring in the collection) As you know already, I love big statement jewelry. These rings and complimenting earrings will not disappoint. I also designed a gorgeous Initial Pendant in a sand blasted 14K gold and diamonds. 


I have always loved letter or initial pendants but I have never found any that I would wear. I knew what I wanted so now I have designed it and made it. Of course I started with the letter A that I wear every day. It is a big letter pendant just like I like it!rudyblujewelryinitialpendant14kgoldanddiamondletterpendantThe Initial Pendants are made to order and will be listed on my website soon!

My second new collection is called The Screaming Pearl. A modern take on pearls that are classy yet tons of fun.  Carved, enameled, colored and paired with gemstones and gold and silver. Yum! 

Stay tuned for some fun luxury from RudyBly jewelry to add some "gorgeousness" to your next year and decade. You deserve it. We all deserve it. Go Crush It!
