Cells Phones vs Watches: What's the Dominating Christmas Gift?

12/09/2011 07:58:00 PM ·

When is the last time you bought a new watch? Ok, now when was the last time you downloaded a new app for your iPhone, Smartphone, or Blackberry? Was it an hour ago? Maybe it was last week. No matter how active you are with technology, you have to admit, people's lives are now dominated by their cell phones. But are they personal? Do we all have them because they make a statement? Or are we really too self-conscious to sit alone and not text. What's your point you may ask? If you were considering a gift this holiday season and you wanted to choose something for, let's say, the special man in your life, does a cell phone really fulfill your goal?

Last year, I looked into several companies and websites, in search of some super savvy mens watches, which were one of a kind, and reflected the personalities of several of the special men in my life. I wasn't looking for your run-of-the-mill wrist watch, but a marine inspired, high quality and competitively priced watch. I found that from Bulova. The watch to the right has a 24 hour and second hand sub dial, with a 60 minute chronograph. It's also water resistant and comes with a three year warranty. The price is comparable to cell phone, but I think I'd rather have this attached to my wrist instead of cell phone in my hand. Maybe they make them for women. Hmmm

I don't know about you, but the last cell phone I purchased broke within one year's time. Granted, I was able to replace it with a newer model that came with my contract, but come on. It makes me think these phones are meant to break so you have to stay tied to a company. My gift decision came down to the idea that I wanted to give something personal as opposed to something sterile. Something unique, and not something everyone already has.
