A star of David necklace is not a ritual object (just pretty jewelry), and I've never seen anybody take offense at one being given by a non-Jew. This is, in fact, one of the safest Jewish items you can buy; were you to try to select books or ritual objects, you would quickly run into matters of differences in tradition and would risk getting the "wrong" ...


See my answer to a related question. In summary, if your watch gives you personal joy, according to many opinions, you should say Shehechiyanu. If the new watch makes you more punctual to appointments when you were chronically late, then, perhaps your friends should also say "Hatov Vehamaitiv" :-) :-)
