There is also the gemstone list, which also has pearls as the gemstone.

Pamper Gifts

Everyone loves to feel special and one of the best ways of doing that is treating your husband or wife to a Spa break, it could just be a day away to be pampered or a whole weekend.

Have a look at your local large hotels, most will have some sort of Spa.

You will need to tell them about the treat before the day so that they can choose the treatments that they want, alternatively most will do gift certificates so you can both decide when you want to go.

There are also companies that you can buy experiences from. These could be pampering or having a go in a rally car. There will be an experience for everyone whether they just want to relax or have the thrill of a lifetime! Make sure you check out the small print as there are likely to be restrictions on when you can use them and also where. 

Another great alternative gift is buying a share in their favorite football team or company. If they love chocolate why not a share in the best chocolate manufacturer?

We have found a company that takes all the hard work out of finding where you can buy the share certificates and they will even frame it for you. Have a look at to see all the big companies that they do.
