The twinkling of fairy lights, the scent of cinnamon, the sound of a crackling fire with your loved ones sat around it - when it comes to Christmas time, there really is no place like home. It’s a time for being thankful to have your friends and family around you and less about what’s under the tree. However, if you are looking to gift someone a spectacular gift to remind them of the most wonderful time of the year then look no further.
A popular stone of choice for Christmas gifts is the ruby. Reminiscent of holly berries, this red coloured stone can bring back fond memories of Christmas time and celebration so there’s no better time to gift a ruby to your loved one this year.
