Engraved Watches & Bags from Things Remembered


A high-quality watch is a classic men’s gift, and for good reason. It’s a luxury item that many men won’t splurge on for themselves, but it’s also very practical and a gift that he’ll use for years. For the holidays, a personal engraving takes the sentiment up a level, making the gift truly timeless.


With genuine leather and stainless steel, the Fossil Men’s Grant Chronograph Brown Leather Watch from Things Remembered makes a clean and strong statement, while the Bulova Black Wrist Watch with Blue Accents makes a more modern gift. The Bulova watch has the added benefit of being water resistant.


For the man in your life who prefers to use his cellphone to tell the time, these personalized bags may be a better gift. The Fossil Estate Backpack is perfect for the teen or college student on your list. This multifunctional bag features a padded laptop compartment, two slip pockets, a zipper pocket, three pen holders and a credit card slot. If your husband regularly visits the gym, this Navy Nylon Duffel Bag adds durability and style to the classic gym bag design.
