It’s almost Christmas!
OK, don’t panic, so it’s only October, but I swear, as soon as Halloween is over, Christmas will be here faster than you can sing Jingle Bells. In fact, I’m pretty sure there is a radio station somewhere that’s playing Christmas music right now.
Around this time of year, that little voice in my head starts getting louder (and more annoying), reminding me that I still need to figure out what the heck I’m going to buy for everyone. The kids are pretty easy, especially Macie, seeing as how YouTube is regularly providing her with new toys she just can’t live without! How did we ever survive childhood without YouTube and things like Hatchimals and LOL Dolls?
The person I probably struggle with the most is my husband. He pretty regularly comments on things he wants but after nine years of anniversaries, birthdays, and Christmases, fishing gear hardly seems exciting, though he probably never grows tired of it! But, we finally surprised him with something totally unique yet something he can use every day, and it doesn’t require me to make a trip down the bait aisle! Triple score!
The kids, of course, get really excited about anything that involves presents. While the twins are a little young to really get it, they’re quick to join in on just about anything with their sister. Macie is at an age where she definitely gets the whole present thing, so she was excited to help wrap Daddy’s gift and then we snuck upstairs to surprise him. And you know they all had to help him open it because that’s the most fun part for them!
So what is this unique gift we got for him?
This guy hit the gift lottery with a beautiful watch and trust me, this isn’t just any old watch. This watch is made by JORD, and they make amazing hand-crafted timepieces from wood! How cool is that? They have a variety of styles available for men and women, so I’m not just speaking to the ladies out there. Guys, there are stunning options for that special lady in your life and you know she deserves it!
A lot of their watch styles are also very unisex. In fact, if it fit me, I would totally steal this watch! If you have a specific preference, you can even shop by the type of wood, from Acacia to Maple to Zebrawood. They have many different varieties of wood on their website and they’re all beautiful.
For Andy, I chose the Conway series in Walnut and Jet Black. This watch is seriously stunning between the wood grain and the dark color of the three dial face. It has a sapphire crystal glass so it’s super scratch resistant, which is great for an outdoor enthusiast, like Andy, or maybe just someone with three little monsters that steal everything! The wood is also treated to be splash proof so he can even wear it fishing. But, let’s get past all the technical jargon and just stare in awe at how beautiful this watch is, even the wood box it comes in is beautiful!
We also took advantage of the engraving option JORD offers. It was a fun, added surprise to make it even more meaningful and unique. The engraving reads, “Best Dad OF ALL TIME. Love, Macie, Lincoln and Reagan”. And like I said, they steal everything, so of course, everyone had to take a chance trying on Dad’s watch. I think Reagan rocks it pretty well!
This was seriously the perfect gift for my husband. He wears a watch from the moment he wakes up until the moment he goes to bed; unlike me who is constantly like, what time is it, where’s my phone? Apparently, I need one too and I’ve got my eye on the Cora Koa and Rose Gold (hope you’re reading this Andy!).
Let’s be real, fancy we are not. I mean, a typical Friday night for us involves takeout and the Disney channel, so there’s that, and Andy’s been wearing the same digital Timex, literally since the day I met him (and I’m pretty sure for like twenty years before that). He is definitely more of an outdoorsy guy who doesn’t want to walk around with a heavy, clunky metal watch. JORD is perfect for him, it’s super lightweight and a great combination of ruggedness and sophistication.
I would say this year’s gift was a success! A BIG thank you to JORD for helping us surprise this special guy with such a beautiful and meaningful gift!
