If you don't have an Apple Watch, you may feel that Christmas has already come for people who do -- and you've got a point there. If you do have an Apple Watch, though, you tend to adore it, and there can't be anything better for inserting yourself into a loved one's life and/or attention span than by giving them something to make the Watch even better. It can be done. It can. It's just not easy.
