Looking for the perfect Christmas present for your best friend?

Between best friends, sisters, cousins, mums and Secret Santas, Christmas present shopping can be super stressful! Normally you end up buying some generic pretty trinkets, but wouldn’t it be nice to get gifts that are truly personal – something made just for them?

Alex and Ani has quickly become a fashion favourite among bloggers like Angela Scanlon and celebs like Beyonce, Miley Cyrus and Sandra Bullock.

The mission of this eco-conscious company is to create beautiful jewellery that doesn’t just look amazing, but also enlightens the mind and empowers the spirit. The pieces are designed by third-generation jeweller Carolyn Rafaelian, who founded the company in 2004 and named it after her first two daughters.

The beauty of each Alex and Ani collection is that you are the main designer. Each bangle is available in Rafaelian silver and gold, and is expandable, ensuring the perfect fit for every wrist. This completely original design allows everyone to have a piece of jewellery, which is truly customised.

Alex and Ani products are infused with positive energy and inspired by ancient wisdom, with designs incorporating multicultural energy symbols to help empower the wearer. Another thing that makes these pieces unique is that each one has been crafted from recycled materials sourced from local mills, which means they support the environment as well as the local community.

Alex and Ani is stocked nationwide or at www.alexandani.com with prices starting from €30.
