My Love Language: Receiving Gifts


I was asked by Carusele to participate in the #JaredTimelessMoments campaign, sponsored by Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

If you’re unfamiliar with the phrase, “Love Languages,” then girl…  Grab a cup of coffee and let’s chat.  One of my favorite books is, “The Five Love Languages” by Dr. Gary Chapman.  This book explains that we all communicate love in five different languages.  Some of us have one primary language, and others (ahem, moi) are a tad complicated and have more than one primary language.

Essentially, a love language is the way that you speak and understand love.  A person typically demonstrates love to others the way that they themselves want to be loved.  The love languages are: words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time and physical touch.

With Christmas right around the corner, I wanted to focus in on the love language of receiving gifts.  If your love language is gift giving, then you love to not only receive but to give.  Chances are that you know someone (maybe even you) whose primary love language is gift giving.  If it’s not that obvious what that person’s characteristics may look like, let me give some examples.  Know anyone who is a fabulous gift giver?  Someone who puts a lot of time and thought into the perfect present, whether homemade or store bought.  These individuals pride themselves in being great gift-givers.  That’s how I know that this is one of my primary love languages, because I love to give gifts.  I enjoy taking time to come up with the perfect present that will be remembered.  Maybe that’s why I love Christmas so much, I get to speak my favorite love language to those most important to me.

The year I started my first job, I have a vivid memory of wanting to spend my Christmas paycheck on a very special holiday gift for my mom.  My mom has always been a jewelry lover, so I knew a special piece of jewelry would be the perfect gift.  I remember going shopping and finding the perfect necklace for her.  I was so proud to be able to buy my first grown-up Christmas gift with my own, hard earned money.  That year, Christmas morning was so exciting for me because I couldn’t wait to see the look on her face when she opened my gift.

A beautiful gift that my mom would love this Christmas is this stunning diamond solitaire necklace and these diamond solitaire earrings from Jared the Galleria Of Jewelry.  I love this set in rose gold, but both pieces also are available in yellow and white gold as well.  This necklace and earring set would make a fantastic holiday gift because of the classic design and round cut diamonds.  I love the bezel setting because it’s so on trend and it will always be in style in my opinion.  I chose this set for my mom because they are such timeless pieces that easily transition from casual to dressy.  My mom loves wearing jewelry in her everyday life, but she looks for pieces that take her from a day at the office to a dressier evening event.

Jewelry has always been a special way to show the people in my life what they mean to me.  I think it’s because jewelry pieces can be worn every day and oftentimes serve as a reminder of the gift-giver each time the recipient sees it.  Jared the Galleria Of Jewelry is the perfect place to find that special gift for the most important people in your life.  They have a wide selection of jewelry options so you’re sure to find the perfect present in your price range.  Jared the Galleria Of Jewelry has so many beautiful options this Christmas season to be sure that your gift is remembered for many years to come.

      Thank you, Michelle! Congrats!! Enjoy this precious time in your life. Planning a wedding can be so stressful, but it can also be so wonderful. Make sure to do pre-marital counseling, smartest thing Matt & I did to prep for married life!! 🙂

    What a lovely post.
    My love language is a A hug and a back massage
    My favorite jewelry Ever received was a promise ring from my then boyfriend-turned husband. He purchased a ring for me a week after we started dating. For some reason, he knew that we would end up getting married.

    Aw I love love languages! I probably have more than one, but I think my biggest one is physical touch. I love the snuggles and hand holding and just being close to one another!
