As soon as holiday season rolls around it can start to feel like you're spending money on frivolous gifts they'll only wear once, which is why we are big fans of selecting meaningful pieces the recipients will use forever. So what better to gift than a functional, beautiful watch? Here, we've selected our favorite styles from Coach, also avaliable at Macy's, along with other equally functional and stylish options to pair them with if you're feeling extra generous. Peruse our picks and then look forward to seeing them enjoying your gift time and again.
The polished woman in your life will appreciate a rose-tone watch with a leather strap in a feminine hue. This version is particularly special thanks to the charms in place of numbers on the dial. If you're looking for a similarly elevated-yet-playful purse to pair with the watch, this quilted Rogue bag in dusty rose with chevron color blocking is just the ticket. Teamed with anything from jeans and a boyfriend sweater to workwear separates it is guaranteed to elicit compliments.
We all know a boss lady who has a playful side. While she needs to look polished and put together, she still appreciates the opportunity to embrace her edgy side. Gift her a sleek watch with a black leather strap to complement with her all-noir wardrobe. For an equally timeless accessory with a downtown silhouette, try Coach's Grace bag in unexpected burgundy. She'll appreciated the understated coordination of the gold-tone hardware.
When buying for oneself it is easy to opt for the most practical and simple option. All the more reason, then, to surprise a loved one with something more fanciful, particularly someone who enjoys feminine accents. This stainless steel watch makes a serious style statement thanks to the applique leather flowers adorning the strap, but remains everyday appropriate thanks to the tan palette. For an equally fun-yet-practical option, try a metallic leather coin purse or Dinky crossbody bag with multi-colored flower appliques.
