Many people think that the ideal gift will be watches — a thing not cheap, stylish and always necessary. However, this is not the best option, the watch is generally not recommended to give.
Perhaps the ban on such a gift originates in China. Superstitious Chinese are wary of the mechanisms by which what is impossible to see is measured.
