Can you believe the first day of Fall just happened? Now, we’re headed for a quick- turn holiday and I’m not even prepared for the madness that’s about to occur. The holidays are always such a rush for me. No matter how I prepare, there are about 10 gifts that I forgot about, don’t have time to buy or just can’t figure out what the perfect gift might be and they all end up last minute (oopsie!).
This year though, I’m super excited because I’m partnering with Jord Watches to bring you a gift that’s absolutely perfect for a girl or a guy (yep ladies, I’m bringing in some guy gifts this year!). These wood watches are a unique idea that will be so well received. They come in a gorgeous cedar box with literally everything you can think of to care for your watch. You can even custom engrave the watch or box upon purchase (you know I love anything personalized!).
There are several things I love about this watch (and yes, I’m going to say “love” a million times in this post – so bare with me). Let me first say, if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t be sharing it with you (trust me!). Number one is, the watch actually fits my wrist because of their unique sizing guide. I realize this doesn’t seem like a big, new development, but I have a tiny wrist and more often than not I have to go have links taken out of my watch to make them fit correctly. Straight out of the box, my Jord watched fit perfectly. Number two, I chose a dark sandalwood band and it goes with literally everything. Dress it up or dress it down and it still looks SO good. Lastly, and this may come because I’m an Art Director by trade, but I adore all of the detail that goes into this watch and the packaging. It is a designer’s dream come true. I know that’s slightly a strange thing to love, but we’re all friends here and I’m just being honest.
Now that I’ve gushed about the watch and how simply stunning it is, take a look for yourself at the variety of options they have on their site www.woodwatches.com. I’m wearing the dark sandalwood and slate (found here), but I also love the mint face as well as the zebrawood and navy. I’m more of a skinny band girl, but if you prefer a wider band they have those as well. For a guy, my top picks are the ebony & copper one as well as the walnut & black one. Honestly, for such a beautifully-crafted timepiece the price point is pretty awesome.
Have I persuaded you yet? Or at least intrigued you? I mean pictures alone show how gorgeous the watch is, but be sure to check out the details of what makes them so special as well: Jord doesn’t leave anything out! And, don’t forget that Jord and I are giving away a $100 gift code toward the purchase of any of these watches AND anyone who enters the giveaway automatically wins a $25 gift code. So, start your shopping early this year and think about who might want a watch…I mean, that person may be you and I’m totally okay with that! Enter the contest here!
