The Perfect Gift For My Fiance ♥

 It was my fiance's birthday two weeks ago and I was stuck on what to get him - the man literally has everything so it's always so hard to come up with lovely gift ideas for him. I had, however, noticed him looking at watches in jeweler windows when we were out doing our Christmas shopping and then it hit me, a watch would be a perfect gift for him. He already has a watch but doesn't wear it too often as it's a 'good' watch as he puts it so I wanted to get him something that he could wear everyday that was still stylish and practical for work. I once read somewhere that if you give someone the gift of jewellery that means you think they're a keeper and that's definitely how I feel about him.

I went in search online for a good deal and a better selection then what I would find in the jewellery shops in my city and came across a site called Shade Station which have a huge selection of brand name watches at great prices. After looking through all the brands which I thought Jacek may like I finally settled on the Swiss Military Hanowa Soldier Watch*, a classic looking watch with a textured black leather strap, polished stainless steel case, a black face and a date dial. I knew Jacek would love this watch as it has a simple elegance, he's not a fan of the stainless steel linked watches with all the gadgets so this one would be perfect for his simple tastes. I also knew that being a Swiss watch it would be of fantastic quality and last a lifetime, I knew he'd love the military aspect to the watch too as he's a history buff just like myself.

The watch came in a lovely box and a great case so it really was special when Jacek was opening it, he even commented on how lovely the case was and he was delighted with his watch - he hasn't stopped wearing it since! The watch has a RRP of £115 but I bought it for £86.25 on the Shade Station website, that's a saving of 25%! I'm so delighted I found this site and their great bargains, I'm now eying up a Michael Kors watch for myself. The watch really was the perfect gift for my fiance and I'm thrilled he's so happy with it.

I've also begun thinking of what to get Jacek for Christmas. I've been searching for gifts for him online and I've found so many unusual and unique things which I think would be right up his street. He loves trying out different beers so this case of award winning British beers would be great for him and keep him happy over the festive season I'm sure! He's always saying he'd like a globe (I've no idea why!) so this globe light would be a great option for him too, he could look at the world map and have a light to use whilst studying in the office - perfect! He really likes aeroplanes and flying paper ones with our son so I think this wooden aeroplane would be a lovely little feature to have in his office. Finally, I think this James Bond Archives coffee book is a perfect gift for him as a huge James Bond fan. I think he'd have a good hour or so looking through it and having it as a talking piece on our coffee table.

What do you get your fiance for their birthday or Christmas?

  1. Lovely watch. My fiancé has one already but he never wears or hasn't in years because the battery is gone. So there might be an idea to re gift it and put a battery in to remind of it.
    Other than that he gets a dove set, new electric toothbrush, selection box and alarm clock.
