Christmas is a wonderful time of year when anything goes. Your bad behaviour at the office Christmas party is usually swept under the carpet (at least until January), your chocolate indulgence is endorsed instead of frowned upon, and you’re allowed to ask for a gift that you wouldn’t dream of requesting at any other time.
I’m often asked by relatives and friends what I’d like for Christmas (whether they actually follow through and get me a present is a different matter entirely), and more often than not I answer honestly with, ‘I don’t know.’
Most men do it and I’m aware this makes us extremely tough to buy for, so I thought I’d try and help you out a little (both those men who don’t know what they want and those who are looking to buy for them).
A watch is always a fantastic go-to gift for a chap, especially a dapper one. They’re timeless, practical (an abundance of men see this as a primary requirement for gifts), usually elegant, and come in a wide range of styles and prices.
This year Thomas Sabo have delivered a fantastic Rebel at heart collection, which includes some extremely diverse men’s watches that cater for all styles. The subtle elegance and contemporary feel of their watches makes them the perfect time-piece to endorse your own, personal style. Their sporty but classic design means their products outlive fleeting fashion trends and ensure your wrist remains on fleek long after you’ve taken down your Christmas tree.
This watch is a Dapper Chapper favourite and part of the Thomas Sabo Spirit Watches collection. It would look at home under the sleeve of any contemporary man. Of course, at Christmas you want to exceed expectations, and this particular model ticks the boxes of both style and quality. What’s more, Thomas Sabo offer complimentary engraving, so you can make the gift just that little bit more special, adding a personal touch.
I’m sure we all know the famous saying, a watch is for life, not just for Christmas and I believe this timepiece excels in this department. Thus, I expect you’ll be wearing it for many Christmases to come.
The men’s Rebel Spirit Chrono is £349.00 and is available at Thomas Sabo
