Smiling young mother and baby having fun time at Christmas time

The lead up to Christmas can be a wonderful time of year; the weather is warm, the Jacaranda trees are filled with purple blossoms and everyone looks forward to a well-deserved break.

What’s even better, you don’t even have to battle the crowds, you can shop from the comfort of your own home with our fantastic online store!


Gifts for men


Watches! Need we say more? Men always love a good watch. Whether he’s the sporty type, a modern man or has more of a timeless, classic style there’s bound to be a perfect watch to suit. Some of our most popular watches for men include a sexy Eco Drive watch from Citizen, perfect for the man who loves a bit of bling. If you’re looking for something a bit sleek and sporty, the Seiko Solar WR100 watch is a great choice for the man on the go. Or, for the man looking for something classic and understated, try a Jag watch.

If he’s  all sorted with a watch, a good heavy gold chain is also an excellent gift idea. We love this 9ct solid gold 55cm chain; it’s not too thick and not too thin, making it perfect for Dad’s, husbands and partners to wear any day of the week.

Gifts for the special lady in your life


We’re often told that Mums, wives and girlfriends can be a bit hard to buy for at Christmas time. Mum’s in particular can be tricky but never fear – Shiels has got you covered whatever your budget may be. Diamonds will always be appreciated, we guarantee a sparkling diamond gift will put a smile on her face come Christmas day. In particular, diamond earrings are always a safe bet; unlike rings, you don’t have to worry about getting the size wrong! The same goes for pendants which are very popular with the ladies.

If you happen to be on the ball and know her ring size and she prefers something with a bit of colour, we suggest bold rubies and sexy sapphires! These two richly coloured gemstones once relegated to Grandma’s jewellery box are having a fashion revival. Red rubies and deep blue sapphires are being seen on catwalks and red carpets across the globe. Make a statement with a beautiful ruby with diamond halo ring, or keep it simple with a pretty cross over ring with created rubies or natural sapphires with diamonds.
