Jamie says that one of my biggest love languages is gifts. That doesn’t mean that I need grand, expensive gifts lavished upon me for every special occasion or just because. But I do place great value on gifts given to me that are unique, interesting, meaningful and/or require some significant thought from the gift giver. This is also how I like to give gifts. In fact, a lot of times the gifts I give other people mean more to me than the ones I receive.
So what happens when you’re married to a man who’s a self-proclaimed minimalist who needs (or wants for) nothing? Let me tell you…I have the hardest time buying gifts for my husband for any and all occasions. This year, though, I think I’ve found the perfect thing: a JORD wood watch.
Jamie’s wearing the Frankie watch in dark sandalwood and smoke. We both really liked the more classic, minimalist look and darker wood color to this watch. It’s also available in zebrawood, ebony and even purpleheart for those that like a little more color. It really suits Jamie, worn with a simple tee shirt and a pair of jeans, but I imagine it will also look sleek with a dress shirt and tie on our next date night. To be completely honest, Jamie doesn’t consider himself to be in-the-know on the latest style trends. He does, however, like my taste in style and doesn’t mind whenever I give his closet a little upgrade.
We were also able to have the watch custom-sized to Jamie’s wrist when we ordered it. We received the extra links in the package, so if at any point it needs to be resized, we can take it to a nearby jeweler to have it done. Speaking of the packaging, JORD knows how to create an experience. Jamie’s watch arrived in a stunning wood box and wrapped around a tweed pillow. . It was hard for me to remove the watch because I couldn’t stop admiring how amazing it looked in its packaging.
JORD has both men’s and women’s watches (click on the links to check out all the styles). They’re beautifully-made, hand-crafted timepieces. These unique wooden watches match my love for modern style with Jamie’s desire for simplicity. Sustainability and ethically-sourced materials are two things that are important to me when choosing items to purchase. I love that you can see on the JORD website where the materials for your watch were sourced from. I’m actually planning on adding a cool JORD wood watch to my own Christmas list this year.
