If you know someone who has a birthday coming up, we have a handy list of top 5 birthday gifts. In times when you can't always see friends and family or travel as much as you like, birthday gifts become even more important.

Often I would grab a card and take a friend out for brunch and a catch up for their birthday. Or take them for Friday evening drinks. Or invite them around for dinner. But if we can't be there to do those things, we need to think a bit harder. So how do you show how much she means on her birthday?

Call us biased, but we think jewellery is a brilliant birthday gift! It's something she won't always buy for herself. But it's something we can't have too much of. It's lightweight and easy to send. And it shows thoughtfulness to choose something that is both personal and stylish.

So here are our top 5 birthday gifts to send a message that she is important to you.

Best friends birthday gift

If your bestie's birthday is coming up, it pays to put some thought into it. Our closest friends are often the ones we turn to when times are tough. The people we rely on when we need a hand. So it's fitting to say thank you by making a bit of a fuss with a special birthday gift.

Birthday gifts for Mum

When it's your Mum's birthday, it's important to get it right. After all, our Mum, Auntie or mother figure has often had a profound influence on our lives. It's important to show that appreciation at times like her birthday.

If your Mum has a June birthday, pearls are a brilliant gift idea. Pearl is one of the birthstones for June, and it's a timeless and much loved natural stone. But it doesn't have to be traditional, there are plenty of modern pearl designs that combine the much loved pearl with on-trend designs.
