watch: JORD Wood Watches (Fieldcrest Series), c/o
I love receiving watches as gifts, especially when it is for a special occasion or carries with it some kind of sentimental value. I still have the pocket watch my parents gave me when I graduated from high school, I treasure the watch my wife gave me as an engagement present, and I frequently rely on the watch that I received as a graduation present from law school. Recently my life has been a bit of a roller coaster, so when I started a new job in Texas, uprooting my family and making a career shift it was incredibly generous of my wife to give me a new watch. At first when she told me that it would be a wood watch, I was skeptical. But the design looks very elegant and it feels comfortable wearing it both around the office and at home. The weight threw me somewhat initially as it is quite a bit lighter than the watches that I am used to wearing, but now I see it as just a nice change from what I normally wear. While I appreciate the wood watch a great deal for the gift that it is, there is another reason that I really like this watch. My grandfather is an avid wood worker, and for years now he has sent me and my family homemade pens, wooden chests, and classical wooden toys. Even though we still live far apart from one another, wearing a wood watch helps me feel connected to my grandfather. Wearing it I feel simultaneously rugged and refined, a refreshing feeling for someone who enjoys his job as an attorney while simultaneously remembering where he has come from.
JORD makes wood watches for both men AND women, and a wood watch would be a wonderful gift to give someone for the holidays or for any other special occasion. And right now for all Style Savvy Sara readers they are giving out $25 e-gift cards here at this link until 12/21 at 11:59 PM (while supplies last)! The e-gift card is good till 2/28/2017, so if you don’t use it for that special someone on Christmas (or for yourself), it would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Thanks to JORD Wood Watches again for sponsoring this post!
