Gift Ideas – Jord Wood Watches

our humble aboden wood watch

I’ll be honest, I always struggle with finding the perfect gift for Daniel. Regardless of the holiday he always tends to be one of the most difficult people on my list. I usually have him send me a list (read: links, so I can easily order them), and go from there. So it is rarely a surprise when he gets to opening.

Even when I come up with a gift idea on my own, I have a terrible time keeping it a secret from him. I just want him to open it right away so I can see his reaction. So yes, I’ll just say it. I’m a terrible gift giver. Or maybe just for Daniel.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I am sure there are plenty of you out there struggling to find the perfect gift for that special person in your life. Well, I may have an idea for you!

If you have been following me on Instagram, you may have seen that a while ago the company Jord reached out and offered me one of their watches to try out so I could share my experience with my readers. As someone who pretty much exclusively wears gold accessories, I was interested to give it a try and see what they are all about.

The company uses a variety of different woods to make their products, so there is quite an array to choose from. I chose the Frankie style, which has a larger face, in the Zebrawood & Champagne. I was drawn to this one for obvious reasons. It was the closest to gold I could get! And although I was going outside my comfort zone, I didn’t want to stray too far!

Since the time I received the product, I have been surprised at the amount of times I gravitate towards this watch to finish my look. I feel like it seamlessly transitions into every outfit and goes well regardless of the season.

So, if you are having issues coming up with a gift idea this year consider giving the gift of a wood watch! They are perfect for someone interested in style, a chronic watch hoarder, or someone who likes great conversation starters.

Know anyone who this would make a great gift for? Let me know!

    I have seen these for about two years now and always think my husband would love one. He is a watch collector but something has always held me back. Maybe it’s time to just do it and get us matching ones. They are so beautiful!

    These look like pretty neat watches. I bet they are a real talking point too. My hubby is a watch collector and I don’t think he has a watch like this.

    I love the look of these watches. And I’m a bad gift giver for my hubby. I’m thoughtful most of the time but I admit I sometimes let it slide with his gifts.

    I love the pictures and how you created the whole look around the watch. Great job and great gift idea.

    I love these wooden watches – they are such a statement piece but they are not over the top at all. I think they are proper unusual and unique too! I really like the slightly dark almost mahogany version of these, they are beautiful! x
