Give a Unique Gift: Wood Watches (ft. Jord Watch)

To my dearest:

How’s everyone doing? To be honest, I’ve had quite the headache recently. With Mother’s Day last month and Father’s Day coming up, I haven’t actually gotten suitable gifts for my parents. I wanted something unique and customizable for the both of them, so my search began. I thought long and hard about their hobbies, interests, likes, and dislikes. Then I remembered something that they both liked: watches!

A little background about my parents, they’re both watch collectors. I remember when I was younger, I would marvel at their displays of watches across a shelf in their room. And they would take them out to polish from time to time. And during this time, I would sit on their laps and they would tell me the stories and adventures they had with each watch. To them, each watch was a special moment, special memory, and even a badge of their achievements.

That was when I figured giving them a watch would be the perfect present. However, given their large collection and the budget I had, I knew I couldn’t get them anything extravagant. So it had to be one that was unique and something they didn’t have. Being a blogger had it’s perks. I stumbled upon many blog posts about Jord Watches and they immediately caught my attention. I thought that wood watches were such an awesome idea. It’s unique and chic at the same time. Not to mention, I am a complete fan of wood material — I like that it is light weight and environmentally friendly. I was quite lucky, as wood watches were on the top of my list, I got on their radar around the same time, and Jord watches reached out to me for a collaboration to try out their watches!

I picked out two different colors from the Frankie 35 series. This series has a slightly smaller watch face than the Frankie. My parents are both petites, so I figured this would look nice on them. I picked the Dark Sandal Wood and Slate for my dad and the Zebrawood and Champagne for my mom. I thought the contrasting colors were a great combination! I loved their Frankie collection for their minimalism as well!

Shipping was quick and efficient. I received it well protected and bubble packaged. The watches were in beautiful wooden cases and came with cleaning and maintenance material. It was very well made and everything I imagined it to be. I couldn’t wait to give it a test drive!

I loved the concept of the pair as a couples watch. I think that they’re the perfect gift for your loved ones or yourself because they’re so unique and not your average designer watch. You can wear it casually or dress it up as well, so what’s not to like? They also have a pretty large selection of designs and colors to choose from. If you’re still contemplating on gift ideas — whether for Father’s Day, belated Mother’s Day, Graduation gift, Birthday gift or whatever the occasion, Jord Watches should be on your list. Plus, they offer engraving to make it all the more special! You can check out their Men’s Watches HERE and their Women’s Watches HERE.
