Pocket Watch

The first year we were married Tony and I decided to give each other one special gift to each other on our first Christmas. I remembering fretting for days over what I could give Tony that would be meaningful. He seemed to have everything a young gentleman required. A girlfriend recommended a local jewelry store for some ideas. I remember walking in so nervous. I did not frequent places like this and I did not know what to say to the young man glaring at me. I bumbled out I was a newlywed and looking for something for my husband. He inquired about Tony's profession and when I said banker he showed me the most beautiful gold pocketwatch. I immediately said that was the gift and I am so thankful he suggested I get it engraved. Tony used it for awhile but now it sits in the stand on our dresser. I know it will go to his firstborn son. Many say what about Benedict and to that I reply...that is for another blog.....

  1. Aww, I loved reading this! I got Chris an engraved pocket watch on our first anniversary; it's so hard to find meaningful gifts that are also "manly" at the same time. I really loved how it turned out :) [And I never go into jewelry stores either! haha]
