There’s always time to give a watch

A watch as a gift can fall into several categories. But the main two tend to be ‘required time-piece’ or ‘expensive keepsake’.
Now, we like to keep things fluid so why not combine both of them? Choose some stylish and practical to give someone a gift they’ll want to wear on their wrist for years to come.
For younger ones great fun can be had in learning to tell the correct time – a skill they will use for the rest of their lives.
This Hello Kitty LCD flip watch is a purr-fect example of an lovely entry level watch that looks wonderful too.
It glitters beautifully with its transparent pink strap which has ‘Hello Kitty’ written in opaque lettering across it. It also has a pretty a clamshell opening with Hello Kitty’s face on top in pink, black, white and yellow with a digital clock on the inside.
For the special women in your life this women’s silver rectangle demi bangle watch from Guess makes a wonderful present.
This watch has a textured rectangle dial with a stone embellished bezel and oversize embellished lugs. In short it looks, and feels, fantastic.
For men, watches are often items that may have been passed between several generations. With this in mind it’s a good idea to choose something simple yet, stylish with plenty of substance.
This men’s black sports watch from Lorus has a black mock-crocodile strap and a white chronograph dial with minute markers and a date feature.
It can be worn in the office, while socialising, and especially for special occasions when a watch can be seen as an accessory to be proud of.
