Watches and jewellery make great gifts for men because they’re impressive, luxurious, and they last a long time, which also makes them more sentimental. If you buy him a piece he loves, you can be sure he’ll wear it often and think of you when he does. And, as there are plenty of both bold and understated styles to choose from, you're sure to find a piece that impresses even the pickiest gent.
Every Christmas, we want to treat our loved ones to gifts they'll remember. But when you're shopping for a man who doesn't know what he wants, has everything, or only wants the best, it can make finding a meaningful gift difficult.
To help make things easier for you, below are our top five jewellery and watch gifts for men to help you get it right this Christmas.
TAG Heuer watch
TAG Heuer Aquaracer - £1,150
Men who appreciate investment watches will already be fans of TAG Heuer, who are renowned for their innovative approach to watchmaking as well as the sporty yet sophisticated style of their watches. This Aquaracer has a 43mm stainless steel case, a 19cm stainless steel bracelet and is powered by an automatic movement, not to mention the fact that it’s water resistant up to 300 metres. Finished with a clean white dial, it will suit every outfit and give some punch to any gentleman’s wardrobe.
9ct yellow gold curb bracelet - £1,485
Even men who don’t necessarily own a lot of jewellery will find a gold curb bracelet very easy to wear. The links in this style of chain lay flatter against the skin than other chains, for easier wear and a more understated look that oozes elegance. This particular bracelet is made from 9ct gold and features intricate detailing on the links themselves. It’s hard to deny the effect that a flash of gold can have peeping out from under the cuff of a shirt or suit jacket, so a gold bracelet is a must-have for any man’s jewellery collection.
9ct yellow gold belcher chain - £2,505
The most stylish gentlemen in the world know that the right accessories can turn a basic outfit into something great, and the flash of a precious metal is all you need to achieve that. This necklace is not only made from 9ct gold, but features tiny intricate detailing on alternating links. A gold chain of this calibre looks best worn over a t-shirt, or on display with a V-neck or button-down shirt (without a tie). They could even wear it over a turtleneck with a pendant for an extra stylish look. Whichever way he wears his, he’ll feel like a million dollars with this necklace as part of his outfit.
Rolex Yacht-Master - £16,995
Classy gents with an eye for style will be thrilled to receive this stunning watch on Christmas day. There are few watchmaking brands as iconic and collectable as Rolex, and this model's luxe colour palette makes it the perfect gift for any man. The Yacht-Master is inspired by sailors and seamlessly blends function with fashion, culminating in a chronograph that’s fit for a regatta. Powered by an automatic movement that’s housed in a 41mm 18ct gold case, it’s finished with a black dial for a look with a lot of impact. No matter who you’re buying for, you just can’t go wrong with a Rolex.
Diamond solitaire ring - £2,880
We have plenty of gentleman’s rings for sale here at Est1897, but this diamond solitaire is among the most impressive in our collection. Perfect for showing you care this Christmas, the stone is over one whole carat (1.13ct), and the band is a beautifully festive yellow gold. Even better, the simplicity of this design means it can be worn again and again with all manner of outfits, so it’s a very versatile piece. Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but men deserve some sparkle at Christmas too!
These five Christmas gifts for him should help you come up with the perfect present to give to that very special man in your life. Regardless of who you’re buying for, you can't go wrong with a sleek watch or a luxurious piece of jewellery that they can treasure for years to come.
