Buying jewellery as a gift is a beautiful way to show someone special how much they mean to you. The great thing about a watch is that it’s a practical and stylish way to dress up any outfit, and can be worn from day to night.

Many people who buy watches as gifts want to give their loved one something they can treasure and keep for a long time. Whether you’re buying for a man and woman, there are many occasions where a watch makes the perfect gift.

Below we’ve listed some of the best times to invest in a watch as a present for a loved one:


One of the most obvious occasions is a birthday, especially if it’s a significant birthday such as an 18th or 30th. The watch will serve as a reminder of that moment in time for the recipient – every time they glance at their wrist, they’ll be reminded of exactly what they were up to on that birthday or that year.

Watches also make a great birthday present as they’re something that can be treasured, but also something that can be worn every day, meaning the person will remember how special they are to you every time they look at their wrist.


Whether it’s the anniversary of when you first met, your wedding anniversary or the anniversary of the birth of one of your children, a watch makes a very special anniversary present. It’s a daily reminder for the recipient that the date is significant for you and your partner, and serves as a reminder of the wonderful way you shared that day.


Whatever the achievement is, whether it’s the person’s first job, graduation or retirement, a watch makes a perfect gift to mark a milestone achievement in a loved one’s life.
