JORD Watch c/o
I can’t believe we have a little less than 3 weeks until Father’s Day! Don’t get me wrong, I’m super happy for Summer and warm weather to be here, but I feel like it was just February like a week ago. With the realization that summer is here I’ve been looking around for some Father’s Day gift inspiration and just struggle to find men’s gifts. The only man in my life I consistently shop for is Chuck and since he’s really satisfied with an empty paper towel roll, I have to look elsewhere for inspiration.
Luckily for Father’s Day I don’t have to look too far for an amazing gift. One of my favorite St. Louis brands is JORD. They make amazing hand crafted wood watches. I’ve seen their watches before so I was really excited to partner with them for this post! Since they’re a local brand I stopped by their offices to pick up my watch and to meet some of the team. It’s nice to actually get the chance to meet with brands in person because strictly e-mailing back and forth gets so impersonal sometimes. I’m sure they regret asking me to come by because they let me see their entire collection of watches and I pretty quickly started taking them all out and trying them on. I was in love with them all!
I chose the Fieldcrest watch in zebrawood and maple, here. I felt like it was a simple design I felt comfortable wearing with a white t-shirt and denim cutoffs or a dress at work. I love that even such a simple watch has really intricate details to it. Both the men’s and women’s collections have some amazing watches. A lot of the watches are actually unisex; mine is actually from the men’s collection. You can see above the fit of it on my wrist that it isn’t ridiculously big on my wrist. The thing I was most surprised by the watches was how smooth they are. I mean I obviously didn’t expect them to feel like they had just ripped down a limb and put a timepiece on it. Some of the watches hardly look like wood from the coloring to the details.
If you’re as in love with these watches as I am then good news, there’s a giveaway! One lucky winner is going to get a $75 gift card to JORD! Even better, if you don’t win you still get a $20 gift card! I feel like Oprah right now; you get a gift card! And you get a gift card!
If you want to enter, which you obviously do, then just click here to be taken to the giveaway. The giveaway ends on 6/12 which gives you enough time to still order something for dad. One of these watches would also make the perfect anniversary present if you had a summer wedding like 95% of my friends.
Feel free to leave a comment if you have a question since I did get to play with all the watches!
