With my son’s new construction business taking off (another pun for the Huntsville rocket connection) and his birthday coming up on the first, I’ve been racking my brains for a good birthday present. I talked to my daughter-in-law this morning and she is getting him a new camcorder that records to DVD. Since he’s a gadget freak, I’m sure he’ll like that.
I’m trying to think of something a little more personal and so far the best idea is a new watch. I would like to get him something that is really tough – working in construction is hard on watches. My ex-husband would go through 2 or 3 watches every year, as the regular cheap watches just aren’t tough enough to survive on a job site. But I’ve heard about the Casio G-Shock watch being tough and having some great features, so I’ve been looking at those on the bluedial.com website.
The casio watch that I like best is a G-Shock that has both 12 and 24 hour formats, and since he’s working for the military and government that would help a lot. This watch also has four daily alarm settings, a snooze alarm and a countdown timer, from 1 to 60 minutes and down. I think those features would be very useful on a job site.
