I'm always on the lookout for gift ideas for my husband and thought this guest post had great points to keep in mind when shopping!
Do you have a picky man in your life? Chances are you do. As a woman, I have always had trouble finding the perfect gift for selective guys (i.e. the time I bought my boyfriend a water bottle for his birthday... everyone drinks water, right?!)
After years of trial and error (okay, mostly error) I figured out the perfect gift for any man, whatever his interests or personal tastes might be. Drum roll please... a wristwatch!
For centuries men's watches have been renowned for integrating fashion and function, and really, you can't go wrong with this classic gift. Whether your son is coming of age, or your husband just got a job promotion, a watch is an appropriate gift for almost any occasion.
Don't be overwhelmed by the huge range of watch styles and functions — it is this versatility that makes a watch such a great gift. Many men own more than one watch to fit the various activities and occasions in their lives, so you can always consider watches as future gifts too.
The executive in your life will appreciate a luxury watch that that indicates a subtle display of success and prestige, like a classic Cartier or Rolex.
Outdoorsmen will appreciate a sturdy sport watch that can withstand salt and sweat. Stopwatch and GPS features might also come in handy.
Men interested in technology and gadgets will appreciate a high-tech watch with a modern, digital look and advanced features like solar charging or high pixel resolution.
If you are new to watches, it might be helpful to check out an online watch forum. You can also visit an online retailer, such as ShopNBC, for a large selection and customer reviews.
When buying a gift for the man in your life, you’ll surely hit a home run with something that is both stylish and functional. Happy Gift-Giving, my friends!
