How to measure your partner’s wrist for a gift

Follow the same steps as above unless you want it to be a surprise. In general, many women will wear a size small, and many men wear the size medium. You can grab their wrist and try to fit your fingers around it and make a mental note of the distance which you can later compare to a ruler. But don’t sweat it, Lou always does free size exchanges! Just contact her and send the bracelet back in the same packaging. Return shipping will cost about $5 within the USA (as of mid-2022).
