It’s that season, at least for me, second only to the holidays in gift giving. Between Father’s Day (and my dad’s Birthday), Birthdays (mine included), weddings and graduations I have SO MANY gifts to buy! My go-to gift for this time of year? A watch! Not only is it timeless but it’s essential – I mean, who wants to be the person digging their iphone out of their pocket mid-meeting to check the time? That is so unprofessional!

I love layering jewelry on my wrist and having the perfect watch is my favorite outfit anchor. My biggest problem is usually picking one! Do I go big, dainty, gold, rose gold, classic? The options are pretty endless. One thing is for sure, my look never feels quite complete without my favorite accessory, a shinny watch. Also, I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want to unwrap a pretty watch for whatever special occasion they’re celebrating this summer.

Here are some of my favorite watches to get you started on shopping for your dads, grads or whoever that lucky recipient might be.
