1. Diamond stud earrings for your partner who has subtly been singing "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" around you for weeks now.

Promising review: "The make of the earring is top notch. The diamond clarity is excellent. My fiancé absolutely loved them and the fact that the earrings have screw backs to provide extra security so they won't fall out." —Rusty

I have these Tini Lux earrings and can't recommend them enough. They're not heavy and definitely work for everyday use. IMO, they're perfectly sized and work with formal and casual outfits. Simply, I love 'em!

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

3. A "Happy Pill" charm they can add on to a chain they already have (how thrifty of you!) as a little reminder that they're Awesome with a capital A.

V Coterie

I was gifted one of these and am obsessed with it for multiple reasons. I love that it subtly pays tribute to my struggles with my mental health (as well as how far I've come!), as it's shaped, quite literally, like an antidepressant pill. However, that's only apparent if you look closely — otherwise it's just a cute smiley face! You can bundle it with a delicate chain if you want to gift a complete set.

Additionally, V. Coterie is a woman-owned small business based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that sells products designed to celebrate medical professionals.

Shipping info: Orders typically ship within three to five business days.

Awe Inspired

I have two necklaces from this mother-and-son-owned company, including this awesome Medusa piece. It's sturdy but somehow still feels delicate. I love the way I can layer it with other necklaces I already own. Twenty percent of all proceeds of this style will go to help women in need. The brand has hand selected an array of charities, such as The American Nurses Foundation; CancerCare; the NAACP; The National Alliance on Mental Illness; the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network;  Emily's List; and The Trevor Project, that they donate to on a rotating cycle. Additionally, the  jewelry is manufactured in Minneapolis, Miami, New York, and abroad in Italy, Istanbul, and Bangkok.

Shipping info: Orders should arrive within 7–10 business days, but you can also upgrade to two-day or overnight shipping.

Get it from Awe Inspired for $175+ (available in five metals, nine chain styles, and two chain lengths).

My sister-in-law gifted this to me and her other bridesmaids as a thank you for being in her wedding and it quickly became one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. It's well-made, beautiful, and goes with all my other baubles.

Promising review: "I was shocked at the price of the necklace for what you get! I would have assumed it to be much more expensive. My husband gifted it to me for Valentine's Day and it's my new everyday necklace, It can go with everything from a night out to your yoga pants!" —Taylor

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $60 (available in 29 styles).

6. A beautiful Daniel Wellington watch they'll audibly gasp over when they unwrap it — it's a stunning accessory they can pass down to their future children.

Daniel Wellington

This watch is water-resistant, designed with a leather strap, and is guaranteed to get you a minimum of 9,000 compliments (per day).

Promising review: "I have three Daniel Wellington watches and love them all! This one in particular is extremely elegant. The gold is a really subtle rose gold, which I like. I was worried it might be too far towards rose gold, but it is really lovely. I've had my other watches from DW for about three years and they have held up perfectly; still look really beautiful. This one in particular makes any outfit look instantly nicer. I'd highly recommend buying this watch if you want something simple, beautiful, elegant, and sharp." —Neil Mejia

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $169 (available in three sizes and four styles).

7. A stone pendant necklace featuring their birthstone, so you can prove once and for all you would never forget their birthday.

Promising review: "This is really, really pretty and not tight, which I hate. It gives enough length to fit right. It's really shiny and good quality. It feels strong, not like the chain will twist or break. I wish the stone was a bit bigger, but it's not little. To me, it's a good buy." —Suzyrizzi

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in 14 styles).

Promising review: "I got this for Valentine's Day from my husband to complete my set. It is absolutely gorgeous and sparkles so much. I find myself not wanting to take it off. The clasp and construction of this bracelet are very durable. It's worth every penny!! I love it!!!!" —S. Freeman

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $149.

9. A compass necklace you'll definitely score points with if you're in a long distance relationship — pair it with a card that says something along the lines of "though we may be far apart, you'll always have my heart." Sounds a little cheesy, but trust me on this one.

Amazon

Promising review: "I love this necklace. I had been looking at it for a long time and finally pulled the trigger! I wear it every day and always get compliments on it!" —Courtney West

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

10. A delicate band with a twinkling diamond and recycled pure gold you'd likely find next to the definition of "dainty" in the dictionary.

Aurate New York

This beauty is simply stunning and perfect for anyone who is 1) on a budget — rings can be SO expensive — and/or 2) in the market for something clean, simple, and sentimental.

Promising review: "The packaging is really nice. I bought these pearl earrings to celebrate our first female VP of the US (pearls and Chucks!) I bought a pair for myself and had a pair shipped to my daughter who lives out of state. I bought the 7 mm for myself and got 8 mm for her" —Luvbizkit

Promising review: "I bought this ring as a gift for my mom whose birthstone is sapphire. I had previously purchased sapphire earrings from Gem Stone King and was pleased with the quality and decided to go with them again. I am so glad I did. This ring is absolutely gorgeous! The little diamonds on the sides are clustered together tightly, which makes them appear as one larger stone. I was a little worried that they would look cheap, but they don't. The sapphire is a lovely deep blue. It is a dainty ring, which I like. It would also make a beautiful engagement ring." —Carey L. Parker

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $299 (available in sizes 5–9).

14. A pair of evil-eye studs that are said to symbolize good luck and protection, a must-have if they're admittedly a *little bit* superstitious (guilty).

Maison Miru

I'm not exaggerating when I tell you I live in Maison Miru products. This woman-owned business is my go-to for dainty but meaningful accessories. These evil-eye earrings are on my own holiday wish list, but I already own their lightning bolt studs, chill pill necklace (my favorite), classic huggie hoops, and tiny crystal studs (just to name a few!).

Shipping info: Orders typically ship in one to three business days.

Get them from Maison Miru for $60.

15. A delicate diamond band, perfect for someone who works with their hands and worries about a raised stone snagging on something but would still appreciate a little *sparkle*.

Promising review: "LOVE it!!! It matches my engagement ring PERFECTLY! It’s shiny and sparkly and seems to be well made. I’ve worn it 24/7 for a week now and it’s still shiny and sparkly and seems quite durable (I’m hard on jewelry). It’s gorgeous and you will NOT be disappointed!" —Renay

Promising review: "I LOVE this necklace. Not only do I get tons of compliments on it, it is still as nice today as when I bought it and I wear it every day. I bought four of these and me and my girls wear them daily. We never take them off, even when we we shower. They haven't lost their coating or tarnished or anything. They look brand new. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a perfectly sized, not overbearing, necklace." —Crysm11

29. And a cleaning pen so all of their new jewels will be *so* sparkly they'll catch they eye of every person they meet.

amazon.com, amazon.com

This seemingly average little cleaning pen is filled with a high-performance formula that cleans jewelry like nothing I've ever experienced. It contains micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer that will make your gems so shiny they'll nearly blind you. I've used it on my diamond rings, but it also works wonders on my cubic zirconia earrings.

Promising review: "The center stone of my ring (an oval white sapphire) has been cloudy since shortly after I got it. I have to use a lot of hand sanitizer at work, which gets under the stone. This product was easy to use. The little brush gets under the stone really well (much better than a toothbrush). My ring looks like new." —FintanCat

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $7.13.
