If you are like me, you may not know that men love watches. If you have a man in your life, you will probably notice that he wears at least one watch every day. He may actually use this watch to tell the time while on the job, he may have a TomTom watch (Click Here – to see a TomTom watch for sale at one of our other online stores) that he uses to track his runs, or he may wear a watch as a statement piece. But what most people don’t realize is that men just love timepieces. The intricate mechanics, the gears and circuits, used to make a watch appeal to the classical view of the world that men see. Women tend to have a more romantic view of the world and see the flashy accessory itself and not the workings of what makes the watch “tick.” For this reason, a pocket watch, retro watch, or even a dress watch is an excellent idea for a gift. You can also incorporate the year of the watch into the gift idea. Think of a child’s birth year or a specific date that would create a special memory. Or, you could have the back of the case engraved.

2) Chains or Necklaces
A necklace may already be in your man’s wardrobe but if not, this is a no brainer. A chain is a minimal yet still valuable investment type of gift. Men will appreciate a gold or silver chain not only for its aesthetic appeal but also for the value of the noble metal that is was crafted from. A rope or Figaro chain is a safe option for guys that just want something sturdy and strong to wear every day. If your guy is open to more of a trendy piece that can still meet the challenge of every day wear, you might want to spring for a nautical theme “mariner” or “Cuban” link chain that is a little more unique.

Let’s say that the man in your life already has his favorite chain that he wears every day and he isn’t opposed to wearing jewelry. You could add a sentimental charm to his necklace. When I say “sentimental” you can choose any number of different avenues to go down. If he loves to fish how about a fish charm or anchor charm. If he loves the outdoors and hunting, maybe a deer head or gun charm. Also, an initial charm with his last name is a good option too; this celebrates the legacy of his family heritage. If you are celebrating a father’s first Father’s Day, think about birthstones or an iconic symbol that will resonate with him.

Last year may have been the year of the necklace or charm, why not think about a matching bracelet. Just because our men folk are manly doesn’t mean that they don’t like symmetry and matching things. A bracelet with a lobster clasp is a safe option for a guy so that he can wear and enjoy his bracelet without fear of losing it. Most chunky links like the Figaro are soldered at each link, so this piece will stand the test of time and will also have the noble metal value.

From years and years of talking with men and helping them pick out rings for themselves, there is a common trend in what they look for. Men like artisan designs, stellar craftsmanship, and something unique. So take that to heart and do not worry so much about the actual size of the ring, jewelers can always resize it after you have presented the gift. If you want to add a stone accent, keep in mind that diamond is the hardest mineral known to man. Sapphires then follow as being a durable stone choice to be worn on the hand every day.
