Unique Holiday Gift for Him? Try a Beautiful & Elegant Watch Case!

Solid Cherry Watch Box with Glass Top

Coming up with a gift for the man who has (almost!) everything can be difficult, and sometimes we default to an old stand-by:  t-shirt, socks, gift certificate. But we’d like to suggest this idea:  an elegant watch case.  Did you know that, according to Timex, the average man in the U.S. owns 5 watches? This is the one indulgence that men everywhere seem to have, but why?  Well, it seems that men (generally, not all) prefer function as fashion.  They will typically have two higher end watches for work or formal events, a medium brand digital watch for knocking around on the weekend, a sport’s watch, and a very casual watch.  In the case of pilots or SCUBA divers, they’ll also have a watch that acts as a tachymeter (to measure ground speed) and timer (to measure decompression times).  More recently, we have watches that also track biometrics:  heart rate, sleep pattern, steps, etc.

Given the number of watches that a typical man owns, a natural gift is a watch case. Men’s watch boxes come in a variety of sizes and capacity, as well as materials like cherry, burl wood, maple, teak and leather. The most popular ones are the classic leather boxes, though more and more have a glass top on the men’s watch box.  Others may prefer solid tops with locks, especially if the watches are expensive (and numerous).  A nice addition to a watch box is a pull out drawer, which can keep cleaning supplies, pocket change, or money clips.

If you purchase a mens watch box for him, a great idea is to add an engraving with his initials or a message. As a real surprise, add a new watch to the inside of the box before you wrap it:  two gifts in one!

And if he’s a connoisseur of higher end watches (self-winding, or automatic, watches), consider a watch winder as well.

 This Christmas season, Chasing Treasure has terrific values on a large variety of men's watch storage boxes that cross the pricing spectrum to provide wonderful value at almost every price point. Our wide choice of men's watch boxes at Chasing Treasure means you are sure to find the perfect watch box that will have a lasting impact on that special man.

Engraved Plates for a Jewelry Box – That Personal Touch

Engraved Name - The Personalized Touch!

 An engraved name plate adds just the right personal touch to a jewelry box gift, and are available for ChasingTreasure's jewelry boxes, armoires, music boxes, & watch cases.

There are three basic types of personalization:  initials, monogram, and message.

The initials are of the recipient, not the giver (seems obvious, yes, but we have been asked!), and can be two or three initials.  In the case of two, the order will be the first letter of the first & last name, in that order.  If three initials, a middle name is added and the order is first, middle, last.

For monogram style, all three initials are used, with the order altered to be:  first name initial, last name, middle name, with the last name initial more prominent with a larger font.

Messages are obvious and can be the recipient’s name, or, more likely, a special event such as an anniversary, wedding, or engagement.  Longer messages can go to two lines, which is almost always the max number of lines for an engraved plate.  Obviously, the longer the message, the smaller the type, and we at ChasingTreasure limit to 23 characters total.

While many jewelry boxes comes with nameplates directly from the manufacturer, most are shipped separately, where the recipient affixes the plate to the jewelry box him/herself.  There is no concern about the quality of the attaching glue, as the adhesive used is extremely strong.  So strong, in fact, that you have to be very careful that you place it correctly the first time, as removing it will damage the underlying wood (a reason why we cannot accept returns with the plate attached).

Brass or nickel finish, script or block font, make up the selections.  The most popular choice is brass script, and arrives in 3 to 4 days from shipping, and the plates are laser engraved.

Whatever the occasion, an engraved plate gives a wonderful personal touch to be remembered through the years and decades to come, and a perfect luxury jewelry box gift for a wife!

Unique & Beautiful Holiday Gift for Her – A Jewelry Amoire

Large Jewelry Armoire
Large Jewelry Armoire - Traditional Design

Christmas is just around the corner. You are probably thinking about possible gifts for the special woman in your life – whether wife, mother, daughter, or niece. Consider a beautiful women’s jewelry box or jewelry armoire. These pieces make unique and beautiful gifts because they’re practical while making wonderful additions to her room’s decor.  ChasingTreasure has a large assortment of jewelry boxes to accommodate any size jewelry collection, any décor style, and any budget.  They are made from the most recognized manufacturers, making them well-constructed.  And the designs, even contemporary ones, will still look appropriate across the decades, reminding them of the giver for years and even generations to come.  Looking at the different options for jewelry armoires will help you decide which is right for the special woman in your life.

Jewelry armoires are wonderful gifts for women with a particularly large collection of jewelry and accessories, and the space to accommodate a dedicated piece of furniture.  Jewelry armoires are larger than jewelry boxes and are freestanding pieces of furniture. These floor-standing cabinets are usually between 32” & 45” tall and include drawers and an opening top for smaller pieces like rings, as well as a large mirror. The drawers are lined and most include dividers for easy organizing. The sides are full-length swing-out necklace doors with hooks to let necklaces hang, preventing the necklaces from tangling and breaking. The bottom drawers are usually open and deeper, for bedside delicates.  Her entire collection will be organized and the armoire itself will be an attractive addition to her room.

Besides keeping her collection organized, a jewelry armoire with a locking enclosure can also keep her collection secure. Many of the jewelry armoires ChasingTreasure stocks are locking – giving her the peace of mind that her treasured heirlooms and favorite accessories are safe.

Remember that when you gift a jewelry armoire from ChasingTreasure, you’re not only giving her a great way to organize her precious heirlooms and accessories: you’re also giving her a beautiful new piece of furniture:  her personal style and décor will come into play when selecting a style of jewelry armoire.

ChasingTreasure has many options for different types of woods, finishes, and styles. If the décor is traditional or understated, an oak jewelry armoire with traditional lines in a French provincial style would work well. Or, if she prefers antiques, a darker stain (such as a coffee finish) with antiqued brass hardware would fit in with her antique collection. If her décor is more exotic, an intricately detailed bamboo style armoire in cherrywood with carved columns and textured detail is perfect. If she prefers modern, sleek lines, a white or black armoire with carved diamond details on the façade and clean lines will fit well in her home. ChasingTreasure has the wood finishes, detailing, and hardware options to accommodate almost any bedroom style.

When you choose a free-standing jewelry armoire, she is sure to be happy this Christmas knowing you took her tastes and needs into consideration. Another consideration is your budget, of course. ChasingTreasure offers a wide range of price points for both jewelry boxes and jewelry armoires.  When visiting our site, you can find coupon codes on the checkout page to get additional discounts on our holiday pricing.  We also have a 30-day return or exchange policy.

There’s never been a more perfect time to get her a jewelry armoire:  a thoughtful, practical, and beautiful gift!
