Christmas shopping for men: The best watches and jewellery under $5,000
Buying Christmas gifts for men should be an easy thing to do – only, it isn't. I mean we could go for the low-hanging fruit such as tech stuff, power tools, gaming related stuff, biking related stuff... But the fact is that guys know far more about these things than women do (okay most women) and more importantly, they are so boring to shop! Not to mention how much men already have in these departments. Another riding helmet?? Errr no thanks..
So it's up to us to bring a little diversity to the table. Plus it's Christmas! Along with good food and drink, who'd say no to a little sparkle in their lives, and come on, don't we all know a watch nut or two? So for eager shoppers looking for truly special Christmas pressies, look no further. Here's Buro Singapore's extra curated, extra sparkly list of watch and jewellery gifts for men. Best of all, everything's $5,000-ish and under.
