Consider your spouse. Would they want his-or-hers emerald rings, or might they prefer a fresh coat of green paint in the kitchen?
Be practical. Emeralds are precious stones, so they can cost a lot of green.
Consider interpreting the suggestion creatively. Green can be golf-related gifts, landscaping services, a green tree planted in their yard or tickets to Ireland - the land of the green.
Shop around; check out online stores, catalogs, and specialty and department stores before you commit yourself.
Enclose a personal gift card.
Wrap your gift perfectly, and if you can, deliver it in person.
Tips and warnings
- Consider peridot instead of pricier emeralds.
- How about sending flowers every week for 55 weeks? Or perhaps a fruit basket with grapes, gooseberries and kiwis.
