Just about everybody would have heard their mother complaining, many many times, like a broken record (!), that they don’t have enough time! It’s a common ailment which seems to develop as soon as the first gestation period ends.
If your mother was anything like mine, that ‘lack of time’ also made her, and you, late to everything you went to!
So while even the sexiest and most stylish watches won’t actually get your mother more time, these Mother’s Day gifts can perhaps at least encourage them to get where they are supposed to be with some semblance of punctuality! Here we give you our top watch picks for Mother’s Day.
It is a happy coincidence this year that Mother’s Day has seen the release of quite a few new watch styles, along with a new clothing and weather season in the Northern Hemisphere. Fossil, DKNY and Michael Kors have all put out new models of watch, and some, like the pink, white and crystal Fossil watch at the beginning of the article, look set to be some of our most popular items. The watch at the beginning of the article has a beautiful crisp femininity. It has a white croco-embossed leather strap and crystals in both the face and crown. It is water resistant to 50m (suitable for accidental splashes), and is a quartz movement watch with a 2 year manufacturers warranty.
For ever after those traumatic years when their children are young (that’s you and I, miniature terrorists that we were!), Mums always look for clothes and accessories that are a blend of comfort and fashion. That willingness to sacrifice her feet, back and skin for fashion thankfully fades after having kids- but it does make it especially exciting to find something that both looks great and is comfy!
DKNY watches are a great choice for comfort oriented Mums, with a huge range of watch sizes available for just about every design, from 13cm to 27cm. This crystal logo watch has a wide comfort band, and is versatile enough to wear with just about anything. It also comes with a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
The new crossover, oversized numeral style of DKNY watch has been selling like ice-cream at the beach. There are several colour schemes, with the gold on gold pictured, and it is very much of the moment. Again, these come in a huge range of sizes and with a two year manufacturer’s warranty, and are water resistant to 30m.
Micheal Kors loves incorporating natural style materials into his watches, with the tortoiseshell range garnering a dedicated following … yes, watches have followings now! The new season collection features plenty of leather, which is again good for blending comfort and fashion. This simple, professional, corporate style watch comes with a two year manufacturer’s warranty, and also features free shipping!
While Citizen usually focuses on the shining, sleek all-gold or all-silver designs, this humble caramel leather piece has actually been one of their most loved products – perhaps because it is so different. This is a great everyday watch for your Mum this Mother’s Day – slim, comfortable, easy to match, down to earth … just like the lady herself! It has Eco-Drive technology, so there is no need to change batteries, and a hard wearing stainless steel case.
But we couldn’t get through the Citizen range without featuring part of what they do best – luminescent shine and slick sparkle. The silver watch at right has a classy mother of pearl face and a very attractive price tag! This model watch is made of stainless steel and is water resistant, and comes with a 3 year Citizen manufacturer’s warranty.
Of course, all of these gifts will be much more appreciated if they come with an actual gift of time also! Cook her dinner and do the dishes and she’ll love you forever. Aw, who are we kidding … she’d do that anyway! Keep browsing in ladies watches for more great Mother’s Day gift ideas.
