When it comes to buying gifts, it is fairly easy when it comes to buying for women, there are plenty of options and you can hardly ever go wrong but when it comes to buying gifts for men, the options are irritatingly limited and you end up repeating things or just giving up.
It’s not like you can buy costume jewelry and just be done with it. As we think about the possible gifts, fashion blogs like these come to the rescue.
We all are tired of buying clothes, belts, wallets, their favorite teams merchandise or favorite superhero merchandise. Some of us might have bought watches but trust me you can do that again.
There is more than one type of watch that a man can own and should own and you can contribute some of them if you have a good budget for the gift. Here are the broad five categories from which you can choose
1. The Classic Leather Strap
This is the go-to style if you are gifting it someone who goes to a lot of formal events and black-tie occasions. This is the classic look with a brown or black plain leather strap, a light metal case and has a classic look. If it’s a black tie event opt for the more classic black band, a brown band is for a more casual feel, like a casual business thing.
2. Metal Love
These are heavier and have a large case with metal bands. This can be used casually as well as with formals. It can be understated or over the top depending on your budget and the brand attached to it. It depends on the person’s style and liking for heavy watches. They can have some bling on them, so be sure before you buy them, this is not you buying costume jewelry for yourself. Most men don’t like very flashy items.
3. Activity Specific
These are situation specific use, as the name suggests. So if your friend is an avid diver or hiker or sportsman or into any kind of adventure/outdoor activities, this will make him extremely happy. You can go for diver watches which can withstand underwater pressure, pilots use ones with bigger dials and numbers or some made from really strong bands and cases for hikers and the likes. These can be worn casually as well even if you are not doing all those things but nor finally. They are too bulky to be worn to formal events and look out-of-place.
4. Sport It
These are most casual and commonly used ones. They are available is a varied price range thus are the go to option if you are tight on budget. This is the variety that you wear anywhere you go as they are lightweight and can take a beating so you can wear them while working out or playing. The specific sports edition has features like a digital screen, lap times, compass etc, it has a nylon or rubber strap with a light-weight case and backlight to make it better during night. They can also be water-proof and can be easily cleaned due to the rubber strap.
5. Everyday Casual Watch
They go well with any casual wear. There are unisex versions as well, actually all watches in the man’s collection are being opted by women as well, they are sturdy and look great so if you are buying one for your partner, you can get ample use out of it as well. The more casual ones are cheaper which don’t have as much features and are suitable if the person is like a colleague or a common friend on whom you don’t want to spend too much and don’t want to look cheap either.
