Every time I’ve ever gifted a family member or boyfriend a watch I’ve consistently hit it out of the park. Which means I regularly fall back on watches as a great gift idea when the person I'm shopping for isn't giving me a head's up on what they're coveting. Unfortunately, there's a downside to this. Most stylish watches can be mighty pricey – often hovering around the $300 mark. Luckily, though, I’ve found a loophole: the Timex Modern Originals Collection. Timex Modern Originals Grande Classics watch is worth every penny of its rather affordable $75 price tag.
- It’s purple. Enough said.
- The jumbo face is graphic and sleek.
- It has a menswear-inspired feeling, but doesn’t feel like you’re wearing shackles (like most hefty menswear watches do). Rather it's ultra-lightweight.
- The silicon straps are beyond soft.
