If you are anything like me, I can spend hours searching the internet when someone important’s birthday is coming up. Not only do I get easily distracted by the hilarious kitten videos that seem to pop up every now and then, but I also find that I waste way too much time focusing on looking for something. Inevitably, I used to either end up sending a voucher or a food hamper of some sort.

However, recently, I have changed tactics and considered something both useful and attractive: watches. Here are four reasons why watches really do make the perfect gift for someone special.

When it comes to watches, there are so many to choose from, and you are spoilt for choice. From sparkly to smart, colourful to subdued, they come in all shapes, sizes and styles. Someone can never have too many watches as they can just switch up what they wear depending on their outfit or the occasion.


It doesn’t matter what someone wears, how old someone is or what gender they are, watches are suitable for everyone. Most people wear one at all times. To be sure, you might just want to keep an eye out to check that your loved one does. If not, perhaps theirs has broken, and that would be an even better time to gift them a new one.


Knowing the time is a useful bit of information. Sundials don’t work so well if you’re in a hurry. Likewise, relying on your phone’s battery to last and tell you the time at any given opportunity is not something any should have to do. It’s a bit like crossing your fingers – it doesn’t work when you need it to most of all.


Finally, donning a well-chosen watch on your wrist can really add something special to an outfit and make you feel a million dollars. While a Casio watch might be suitable for the workplace if you do manual labour, for example, something a little classier and stylish can be perfect for a formal occasion.

And if those reasons haven’t persuaded you that it’s a great gift to give, perhaps you may prefer to consider the accessories you could choose instead.


If you simply cannot choose the watch that your loved one would appreciate, perhaps you could purchase an accessory. Watch winders are a fantastic choice as they can ensure that time-tellers are kept in excellent working condition even when not worn. Whether the recipient has one watch or several, there is a range of options to choose from.

Watch repair kits and batteries are further ideas that you could purchase. However, with pricier items, it is recommended that you see a specialist to have them repair or replace the battery in the watch in order to ensure the procedure is carried out properly and no damage occurs.
