Giving a clock as a gift is a nice sentiment but it’s also much more than that. Clocks have both monetary and sentimental value, especially ones that are made in Germany. They’re often passed on from generation to the next and cherished as family heirlooms. If you want to give a meaningful gift to a family member or close friend, consider the following clocks that will make the ultimate Christmas gift this year.

When buying someone a clock, it’s important that you buy from a brand that stands for quality and craftsmanship, and the Howard Miller brand is infamous for this. Impeccable workmanship and unsurpassed quality, these clocks hold a certain prestige. And for decades, Howard Miller clocks have been the standard when it comes to special occasions - wedding, anniversary and Christmas gifts. With so many options to choose from – wall clocks, floor clocks, tabletop clocks and more - there’s no shortage of excellent centerpieces or accent clocks to give as gifts.
