With a later-than-usual Thanksgiving on the calendar, holiday magic feels like it's all weaving together on my to-do list. I'm planning menus and RSVPing to invitations, and making plans to help Jada Jo Jewelry thrive in the new year. Yet each day, another task takes over some of my productivity time — gift giving. I'm making lists and checking them off slowly but surely.

The Jada Jo Jewelry Holiday Guide

Our top picks for moms
A mother's love flows eternally, and I honored that with a necklace made especially for mothers. I also chose a necklace crafted with opals, stones known for their pure beauty and the way they exude optimism.
Our top picks for dads
Dads often signify strength and protection in our lives. I chose pieces that offer protection (Tiger's Eye) and strength (onyx).

Our top picks for friends
Nothing feeds my soul more than sincere, affirming friendship. I love gifting friends with either unique pieces, like the Cambodian cuff, or pieces I can add onto year after year, like stackable bracelets.
