Ten beautiful watches to gift this Christmas

As Christmas Eve is almost a month away (yes, you read that correctly), it’s time to start prioritising your shopping game plan. If you’re finding yourself dillydallying around, avoiding writing Christmas lists, running far from all department stores and frenzied crowds, you’ll most likely end up buying Cadbury’s chocolates, a pair of socks and a bottle of gin last minute. So why not take some pressure off now by getting ahead of time? One sure fire way to do so is by buying a watch.

For glamour girls, think of something with a flash of colour and a little sparkle. If you’re gifting a classy lady, consider something more classic, elegant and timeless. A watch should hold up for decades; it’s an investment. So splurging a bit pays off, but there are also so many affordable options if you’re not ready to commit.

Whether you’re hinting what you want for Christmas by forwarding on this link, figuring out what to gift your mother, or fancy treating yourself to something special, I’ve made the process a little easier for you. From Gucci, Tissot and Tag Heuer to Thomas Sabo and Henry London, check out these ten timepieces from across the price spectrum; all the no-fail gifts to give any chic woman on your list – but do so before the craziness becomes too crazy. Happy shopping.

Hampstead watch, Henry London, €135 at Weir & Sons

G-Timeless watch, €890 at gucci.com

Brown gold tone chain link round watch, €45 at River Island

Vivienne Westwood watch, €298.02 at viviennewestwood.com

Riley touchscreen smartwatch, €329 at marcjacobs.com 

 

Aquaracer watch, Tag Heuer,€1,450 at Weir & Sons
