I love going above and beyond for everyone in my family, but sometimes my budget doesn't allow for that. I'm forced to bargain hunt to make the holidays more affordable.

But with an option like layaway at J&J Diamond Jewelers, it lets me get something extra special for the people in my life without buyer's remorse. I can skip the discount display and go straight to new products, put only 10 percent down, and spend the next four months slowly paying it off.

And, you've probably heard me talking about how much I love the selection and personalized service at J&J. Whether you're looking for a showstopper of a watch for your husband or dad, want to get a special keepsake for a little girl, or want to truly wow your significant other, the trusted and experienced staff at J&J can help you find the perfect fit. If you're ready to pop the big question, they can help you find the perfect diamond for your style and budget.

Here are some of my favorite gift ideas from J&J:
