If your husband is much like mine, all you’ll ever get out of him when you prompt for birthday gift ideas is ‘I don’t know … something small’. And that is just no fun! Husbands like awesome gifts as much as their wives do … they might not squeal and faint dead away at the sight of a diamond (and wouldn’t that be hilarious!), but they appreciate the thought that has gone into their happiness just as much. Today we’re helping you pick birthday gifts for husbands born in March … it’s all too easy!
The birthstone for March is the aquamarine … and unfortunately this beautiful ( and fairly unisex!) light bleu stone is not included in any men’s jewelry. You can, however, use the signature color for his birth date to guide your choice. If he’s born between the 1st and 20th of the month, he’s a Piscean, and his signature color is grey. If he’s born after the 20th, he’s an Arian – signature color red. We love the surf lifesaving watch at right for Arian guys – it has the fiery red heat, teamed up with the gold of the sun around the dial – but is definitely not overbearing or garish. The manufacturer is the same company that makes Swiss Army knives … lots of brownie points with your man for that one! The watch is 200m water resistant, and has all the tough construction materials like mineral crystal glass, stainless steel band, screw-down crown, etc. It ships for free, and also comes with a 3 year warranty.
Piscean husbands, born between the 1st and 20th, have water as their ‘ruling’ element. That’s why we picked the subtly textured ‘Icicle’ cufflinks from the Hot Diamonds range for Piscean husbands … he’ll be cool as a cucumber with these at the office or cocktail parties. The inlays look a little like textured steel, but are actually mother of pearl, and each cufflink has a genuine 0.01ct diamond set in the face. They are rhodium plated, so that shine you see in the pictures will last for years with nothing more than general cleaning.
We also love the double wave ring at right for Pisceans … it is a fish sign, so your husband should feel very comfortable under the wave of the titanium ring! The ring has quite a slim band, so will fit alongside his wedding ring nicely – no need to clutter up those other fingers, we know how men hate being cluttered! As far as titanium rings go, this one is very simple – you can have a message engraved on the inside of the band, if you like, but otherwise the product is as you see it.
While there are few red items to be found among the men’s jewelry range, there are a couple of beautiful pieces that incorporate a slight coppery touch – like the rose gold tone Citizen Eco-Drive watch at right. This is full of functionality, and if you have a travelling man, he’ll quickly become besotted with it! It displays work time for 24 cities, has a perpetual calendar function and is water resistant to 100m (so is suitable for snorkeling and swimming). You also get a neat discount off RRP when you order Citizen products through Gilletts, thanks to a special arrangement.
For Pisceans, though, where water is the signature element, a dive watch would be much more appropriate. This Promaster Aqualand model is one of our newer styles in store, and you’ll see an awesome introductory discount when you click through to the product category … go on, the price is definitely worth a look! The watch itself has features like depth display, stopwatch, non-reflective coating, date function, etc. It is an Eco-Drive model, which means that batteries won’t need to be changed for the life of the watch – it just needs a little sun every now and then . All Eco-Drive models come with a 5 year manufacturer’s warranty, too.
You also have a little more choice for Arian guys (in products that are personalized by birthdate), because the alternate birthstone for Aries is the diamond. The puzzle ring at right is definitely a luxury item, but should blend beautifully with his wedding ring. It is made of 18ct yellow gold and 18ct white gold, and the diamond in the center is a well-sized 0.08ct stone. You’ll definitely need an accurate finger size for this ring – they can’t be re-sized once ordered. If his wedding ring still fits properly, check your purchase paperwork to keep the gift a surprise!
The range of men’s jewelry in store grows by the day – there are so many beautiful, yet very masculine pieces.
