Engraved Wooden Watches: The Perfect Gift

 Alone, wooden watches make great gifts. And they don’t just tell time — they’re unique, attractive, and symbolize one’s taste for both nature and style. 

So, how can you make this gift even more special? By engraving it with your very own personalized message. 

Engravings are a great touch to any personal gift, especially wooden watches, because it makes them timeless (pun intended).

And it won’t just be an object that tells time… it will be a source of love, affection, and inspiration that travels with them wherever they go. 

It shows that you truly care for that person — that you didn’t get them a gift just to say you did.

The best thing of all, the engraving will always remind them of you. And since you got them the best gift of all time, they will be forever in your debt!

Well, maybe not… but at least you’ll get brownie points.  

Not really sure of what to say to that special person? I mean, if they’re really that special, shouldn’t it be easy to find the words?

...still can’t come up with anything? 

Well, lucky for you, we created a list of some great ideas to help inspire you! 

But first, take a look at how it's done.

How We Engrave Our Wooden Watches

Our watches are engraved using a 40W laser engraver, which can quickly and accurately produce any letters or numbers of your choice.
