Find the perfect Christmas gifts online


/ by
After years of buying gifts for family members you can end up getting stuck in a rut. Every year you buy a selection of the same things - jewellery, perfume, socks, pyjamas, the list goes on. But what if you could find that perfect gift that just “fits”. The thing that shows your loved one just how much you love them and is something they would never have bought themselves.

Because that’s the key to Christmas gifts isn’t it? That evasive “I would never have bought this for myself but now I have it I love it” gift.

Personalised Watches

Well this year I may have just found the perfect gift for my sister and it’s come courtesy of Gifts Online 4U. Up until a few weeks ago I had never even heard of Gifts Online 4U but after looking at their website I found that they offer a great selection of gifts from lipstick cases to champagne. But it’s not just about the gift, they offer personalisation too, so on that lipstick case you can have your name, or the recipient’s name engraved on it. 

After spending some time scrolling through the many gifts on the website my favourites turned out to be the watches. There are some really gorgeous watches available and they can be engraved on the back. When I saw the faceted face watch I knew it would be the perfect gift for my sister.

  • As I grew up, one of my strongest allies has been my sister.

The personalisation process is really simple, you can select the font you’d like to be used (from a choice of 6) and then you have four lines of 17 characters in which to write your message. It took me a little time to settle on what I wanted to say but in the end the simplest message was the best.

“My sister, forever.”

I added our names too but that was my message.

About the watch

It is a quartz watch that has a silver plated body, it has a silver dial with a faceted watch ‘glass’ that shimmers at different angles and it has a white leather strap. 

The problem with that brief description is that it doesn’t really show off the watch. It really is a lovely watch, the faceted glass is gorgeous and while it’s not sparkly it does shimmer in the light. I love that it’s not too “in your face” and covered in cubic zirconia stones, the glass has a subtle style to it.

The silver watch and white leather strap work well together, the subtle style about this watch screams “I don’t need bling to look good!” and I love that.

The box the watch comes in is black and is easy to open, the watch is wrapped around a black cushion that really shows off the watch. When you open the box you can smell the leather strap so you know it’s not fake.

This watch is available for £59.99.

What else can you personalise?

The selection on the website is brilliant, like I said there are lipstick cases that can be personalised, there are bottles of champagne that can be personalised, be sure to check out the Engraved gifts for her section - there are even personalised multi purpose pocket tools for the men in your life. 

  • The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value.

If you’re looking for a gift that is a little different, something that you wouldn’t normally buy then why not take a look? 

You might come across something perfect.

Do you struggle to buy Christmas gifts? What would you choose from the site if you could?

I was sent the watch mentioned for purpose of review. All opinions are my own.

  1. Beautiful watches - my sister is a big watch person. I've given her many. I don't personalize in the sense of adding names or engraving. I am on the look out all year for things that are perfect for a family member. By Thanksgiving 98% of my shopping is done. I need to ship most to other states so I need to be ready early. I might see a book, scarf, earrings, etc that are perfect for my sister or sister-in-law. The men take more thinking. #PoCoLo

    1. I totally agree that men take more thinking. I'm always left with the men, wondering what to get them. :)

  2. You have chosen a beautiful gift and the personalisation makes it that bit more special. I had a St Christopher engraved for my eldest last year and he really loves it and it is something I would definitely do again. (I hope your sister doesn't see this and ruin the surprise!)x #pocolo

    1. Thanks Louisa, that sounds lovely. No my sister won't see this which is why I didn't mind saying it is for her. :)

  3. I love the watch abd the twist with the personalisation on it makes it uber special for Christmas X #pocolo

  4. Those watches are so lovely - it's such a personal gift!


    1. The selection is great, this was definitely my favourite though. :)

  5. Hi Morgan, what a pretty watch. I like unbusy items too. The beveled glass adds interest, and I love the plain face of the watch. Delicate, understated and still very stylish. I'm sure your sister is going to love it.



    1. Thanks Debbie. I've never liked the fully "bling" watches, they're just far too out there for me. I love the understated style of this one. :)

  6. Beautiful watch great it can be personalised, great idea for Christmas #MondayStumble

    1. Thanks hun, I thought it was a really thoughtful gift. 😊

  7. This watch is lovely. I've got two watches but wear neither as I can stop time well ticking anyway!#PoCoLo

    1. Hehe Love it Helena! Thanks.
      I can't do without my watch as I'm constantly being asked by LP what time it is! 😂

  8. I love the watch and a love giving personalised gifts as presents too #pocolo
