My husband has worked so hard this past year to get us through the buying and selling process in the real estate market. In addition to his day job, he worked countless hours getting our home ready to sell. Then, when it sold, he put in many more hours finding our new home, negotiating, signing papers, and then…. MOVING. So after this busy and stressful year for him, I needed to find the perfect birthday gift to show my appreciation.
My husband loves to work with wood. He boasts about his high school days of spending hours in Wood Shop Class building furniture and various other things. And as his proud wife, I’m happy to admit, he has skills! In our last home, we built beautiful open wood shelving for our tired kitchen. I told him my vision, and he knew exactly what to do and how to do it. Didn’t it turn out great??!
And he’s already been hard at work in our new house too! We just built this beautiful wood bench! It’s exactly what I wanted.
So if you’re following my thought process here, then you might be thinking what I was thinking… “Does a fresh pile of 2×4’s make for a good birthday gift??!” And ultimately, after considering how useful that might be, the answer was, “No, definitely not gift worthy.”
I knew I could do better.
And then it dawned on me. A JORD Wood Watch. Yes! It was the obvious choice. And if you’re wondering what JORD is all about, that’s what I’m here to tell you. JORD Wood Watches are beautiful, modern timepieces made of a gorgeous assortment of sustainably sourced wood. When you visit their website, you will see for yourself. The various styles mixed with their choices of wood and finishes makes it easy to find one (or two!), that you will absolutely love. If you’d like to know more, you can visit their website HERE.
I took some time to browse their selection, and ultimately decided on the Dover, in the Ebony & Copper finish. I knew my husband would love the colors, but also that you can see the workings of the watch behind the hands, called a Skeleton Dial. That just sets it apart and makes it truly unique.
And it doesn’t stop at just the watch. Each watch is packaged in the most beautiful wooden box, making the gift giving process that much more special. It is not just an elegant way to present the watch, but it makes for a great place to store it as well. It looks stunning sitting on his bed side table.
He is so pleased with his watch, and it has become a staple in his wardrobe this Fall. I am so happy I could make him feel special, especially when the projects at this new house are far from finished!
