Banks Lyon Jewellers, with stores in Kendal and Lancaster, offers some last-minute gift selections to ensure no-one need panic as Christmas approaches

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Right?

And then you realise that you have three weeks until Christmas Day and still no clue what to buy for anybody!

Cue the Banks Lyon Jewellers Personal Shoppers - ideal in your time of need to shift any last-minute-panic with a drink, an open ear and some helpful advice that is going to keep you off the Naughty List this Christmas.

If you have made a mutual agreement not to buy each other presents, you should definitely be looking for a surprise gift.

Trust me; there will be one coming your way.

Find your “oh, it was nothing” gift for her with a timeless pair of diamond stud earrings or a colourful burst of precious gemstones – emeralds are our flavour of the month and you’ll find an enviable selection of dress rings that will keep everybody talking over the party season.

Alternatively, keep it subtle and memorable with an 18ct white gold locket in a range of coloured enamelling with diamonds.

Listen out for hint-droppers. Have you been making notes? Common phrases to remember would have been “That’s gorgeous, don’t you think?” or “Wow, I love this”.

There will be a show-stopper on hand at Banks Lyon to make anyone’s year, such as our South Sea Pearl and Pear Cut Diamond necklet from highly esteemed Yoko London for her and, for him, a limited edition Omega Diver 300M in 18ct Rose Gold and Titanium (1 of 2,500 worldwide and a favourite of ours).

For those people who you think have everything, remember jewellery can always be doubled up and stacked.

A classic diamond line bracelet (great idea for a New Year’s Eve party) will look sensational alongside a Signature Cartier Ballon Bleu.

Similarly, if he has only just treated himself to a new watch, why not find the perfect Wolf Watch Winder or watch box for him to care for his prized possession?

If you are actually just in need of a couple of stocking fillers, try not to rule out jewellery. Diamond rings from trend setters Messika come in very handy and don’t break the bank.

Silver brands such as Shaun Leane, Vixi and Georg Jensen also offer a unique, high-quality product on a budget for men and women, with the latter also boasting its own homeware range from £30 upwards, should you know a friend who enjoys Scandinavian home styling.

Our gift to you this Christmas is making life easy!

Finding you the perfect present for your perfect person is something we have been offering at Banks Lyon for decades, so let us do the hard work and make you look great, while you sit back, relax and enjoy the experience.
