'Tis the season to see all those dramatic commercials where the wife buys her husband that brand new luxury car, or the husband buys his with that beautiful diamond necklace. If you're looking to surprise your significant other with an expensive Christmas gift, you definitely need to check out these tips...
Look at that car!
One of the most dramatic commercials you will see is when the husband walks outside to find a $50,000+ luxury sedan or sports car. If you're planning on buying your significant other a new car, make sure you speak with your auto insurance agent to find out how long you can wait to add it to your policy. If you add the new vehicle to the policy and your insurance company sends you a new ID card or updated policy documents, it could really throw a wrench in your surprise!
Diamonds are forever, as long as they don’t disappear!
If you're planning on buying an expensive watch or jewelry, it will most likely need to be added to you homeowners insurance or renters policy. When you purchase it, try to get an appraisal from the jeweler. Most companies require an appraisal to add jewelry to a policy. When you schedule jewelry on your homeowners or renters insurance policy, not only are you covering the jewelry but in most cases you are covering the jewelry better. Most scheduled jewelry will be covered even if you lose the jewelry, and sometimes if you lose a diamond from your jewelry.
That’s no toy, that’s an unmanned aircraft!
We have previously blogged about being careful when operating a drone, and how it can affect your liability insurance. If you are lucky enough to get one of these flying marvels of technology, make sure you practice flying it in an open field where nothing and no one can be harmed by some rookie mistakes! Also, as we covered in our drone blog post last year, you will most likely need to register your drone with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)!
Christmas is such a great time of year... You get to spend time with the ones you love and shower them with beautiful gifts! If you get a little out of hand with spoiling your spouse, partner, or child, be sure to think it through before you purchase something that could affect your liability or even somehow give up your secret gift.
