Catherine's Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide.
Posted on 26 October 2016
With winter fast approaching and reindeers on the horizon, Catherine gives her top tips on what’s new online and who would like what in their stockings.
‘Each Christmas I get last minute worried phone calls from my clients looking for something special for their loved ones. This Christmas I thought I would help ease the stress of Christmas shopping with a short walk through my collection and a few tips on what’s new and what I think certain people might like to find under their tree!' Xx Catherine
For the ladies, wives and girlfriends
The Fairtrade Love collection
What better way of saying I love you than with hearts. This timeless collection of delicate designs are all made with solid 9ct Fairtrade gold or silver. We are very proud to be able to offer this ethical option as it is gold and silver with a difference which contributes to a better future.

The Feather collection
Our newest addition to the Zoraida collection, our statement feather pendants and earrings, ooze style and elegance. Wear the earrings with your hair down to create a show stopping look. Click here.
Personalised Disc Pendant
Anything personalised is a huge hit as it always shows you have pre-planned and thought extra carefully to get the perfect present. These pendants are a simple way to say something lovely. They are available in silver, gold or rose gold and can be engraved with an initial or special date. A recent client gave his wife one with the name of their two daughters on each side. A gift that she can treasure forever.
A Zoraida classic
If it is the first time you have shopped with us then you cant go wrong with one of our classics. Either the double leaf earrings (as worn by the the Duchess of Cambridge), the lychee pendant or perhaps a dragonfly necklace.
And of course….
Something sparkly. You can't go wrong with diamonds but if you want something equally special but with a little bit more spirit and colour then the Maui rainbow collection would be perfect. A bit of a splurge but they are seriously special pieces. The Maui rainbow is made up of seven different coloured sapphires. A perfectly sparkly piece to give this Christmas that will be sure to make her smile.
Presents for husbands, fathers, brothers, sons and nephews.
It is often difficult to find presents (other that books, socks and booze) for men (especially Dads) but when you do find something special it is a great feeling and a wonderful touching surprise for the lucky man in question.
Although, primarily a ladies jewellery designer there are a couple of special pieces we do for men.
Cufflinks are a perfect way to create personalised presents.
We make traditional oval plate and chain cufflinks with your initials engraved on one side and an engraving of your choice on the other. Our personalised cufflinks start at £250 in sterling silver but we can also make them in any choice of gold, palladium or platinum. They can also make a wonderful bespoke gift for a godson that they can treasure forever. Click here for more info.
Alternatively, if you have an idea of something you would love to create we are here to help!
And secondly, another great present that is new to our website is our solid silver buzzard feather paper weight and letter opener. This is a wonderfully unique gift.
It was cast from a real buzzard feather that Catherine found while walking in the Cotswolds. It’s not only a beautiful object but wonderfully useful too! For the ultimate personalised gift we can even engrave the feather’s quill with a special message, name or date.
Gifts for Nieces and God Daughters
Our Zodiac Star sign pendants are the perfect present that suit all ages but I think they can also make a wonderful gift for daughters, nieces or god daughters. Choose from one of our twelve zodiac constellations, each one represents a Zodiac star alignment. All the pendants come in lovely boxes should the piece need to stay safe until the child is at an age for it to be worn. They can also be engraved with a personal message or date and are bound to bring love and luck to someone special.
For those who have everything…..Jewellery boxes
For those ladies who have all the jewellery but no where to put it, perhaps its time to get them something lovely to keep it all in. We now have our own range of Zoraida jewellery boxes and travel rolls for when you are on the go. All made of soft leather in beautiful jewel tone colours, they are a wonderful, thoughtful and special gift for grown ups and children alike to keep their treasures in.
And don’t forget the dog! For the totally pampered pooch we now offer sterling Silver dog tags. Hand engraved to your personal specification. Woof!
New packaging and gift wrapping.
We are very excited that our new packaging has arrived. All items are now shipped in our gorgeous fabric lined, leather boxes and come with individual travel pouches, care cards and look book.
For a small fee we also now offer gift wrapping in CZ tissue paper, ribbon and one of our lovely new gift bags. What more could one ask for at the bottom of your Christmas tree!
We hope this helps you a little in your decisions this Christmas and please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
