I was once asked what I thought was the perfect Christmas present for a person who was ‘difficult to buy for.’ You know the sort of person that I mean. The one who if you actually ask them ‘what do you want?’ will give you an answer about not wanting anything, not needing anything, or just the comment that virtually brings me out in an attack of hives – ‘buy me anything!’ (Aaaarrrggghhhh!) Choosing the present can be made even more difficult if you are not really sure what you would get for them fashion wise, and if they seem to have a lack of hobbies that you could help them with. So, with all this taken into consideration, when I was asked the question ‘what is the perfect present for someone who is difficult to buy for?’ My stock answer is always ‘Buy them a watch.’
I think a watch is a totally genius answer. After all, who doesn’t need a watch. Even people who tend not to wear any other items of jewellery will usually still wear a watch. It is a practical as well as an attractive gift. It can be a personal, and sometimes even personalized option, but can also appeal to lovers of high fashion. It also appeals to both old and very young – my four-year old has recently become obsessed with wearing them. This year Best Gift Company has some really amazing designs in watches, with some of the best coming from Ice Watch UK.
Ice Watch UK produces watches for all taste. Minimalist glamour is catered for in the black and gold unisex watch. Whatever your favourite colour, there is a watch to suit, with designs in primary and neon shades, and the white Chrono watches adding just a splash of colour on the dial. The Surf designs for men are waterproof and pretty tough and resistant. And, of course, all the watches are beautifully packaged making them perfect Christmas gifts.
