For spouses

Get a goofy clock for their work or play spaces, and include a message that says, “Love you for all time.”

If he or she has trouble getting going in the morning, give an alarm clock that plays music or chimes.


Give an elegant grandfather clock. An engraved glass plate can be attached to it, inscribed with your names and the date of your wedding.

Give them a watch so impressive they’ll want to wear it every day.

For another couple

Send a unique clock from an art museum’s online shop.
