Best Unique Gifts at a Glance:

Swatch BIG BOLD IRONY Watch | Image: Swatch


In partnership with Swatch

Swatch’s latest collection is also their first stainless steel BIG BOLD with an urban twist on street style. Crafted with modern explorers and rebels in mind, it embodies pure attitude and energy and conjures a vibe that’s as irreverent as it is confident and entirely unexpected. Whereas some stainless steel watches aim for subtlety, this one thumps its chest by way of bold colour, innovative material, and avant-garde design.

This year kicked off a brand new chapter for the BIG BOLD line with the introduction of two firsts: the collection’s first stainless steel model and also the first Swatch piece to combine modern bioceramic with trusty stainless steel. The result is a robust head-turner that takes the words “big” and “bold” to heart by defying convention at every turn. More than striking wristwear, this is a daring talking point in horological form. Only the bold need apply!

Things to Consider for Unique Gift Ideas

When it comes to unique gift ideas, simply wrapping a bow on a bottle of whisky isn’t quite enough. In fact, if you want to get the special occasion right, there are a few things you need to consider:

  • Price: Perhaps the most obvious consideration, the price will inevitably play a factor in your purchasing decision. While you may want to splash out for a significant birthday or gifting event, more often than not, you’ll be aiming around the $50-$100 mark. To get the most out of your unique gift idea, don’t be afraid to shop around for the best price.
  • Risk: Trying to buy a unique and different gift idea is not always the most straightforward predicament. When you stray from the path and pick up something a little out of the ordinary, you run the risk of missing the mark.

If you are looking for something a little more normal, we’ve got you covered. Outside of these gift ideas, we’ve collated our favourite releases across a number of different categories. So, no matter what that special someone in your life is keen on, you’ll find it here.
