Do you have a person on your gift-giving list this year that is difficult to buy for? They either have everything or when you ask them what they want, they tell you they don’t know.
I have a person very close to me like this; it’s Handsome.
I had been going crazy looking for something to buy him for Christmas. Then the wonderful people at JORD said they would send me this stunning handcrafted Zebrawood and Maple Wood Watch from their Fieldcrest series. I was so excited I couldn’t contain myself, but I had to or else I would wreck Handsome Christmas morning surprise.
Wait. Back up. You have never heard of JORD Wood Watches?
These wood watches are absolutely a stunning work of art. The craftsmanship and spectacular designs are second to none. I was pleasantly surprised by just how lightweight the watch is. The wood watch will look great on Handsome when he wears it into a board meeting or just hanging out with his friends at the bar to watch his beloved Vanderbilt Commodores play.
The packaging it self looks like a gift. Just look at the impressive presentation of the maple wooden box engraved with the JORD logo.
When you received your beautiful wood watch in it’s maple wood box, you will also be receiving:
- A card to remind you to hashtag all your fun times while wearing your JORD wood watch.
- One year warranty card
- Cleaning cloth
- A cool pillow for your one of a kind wood watch to rest on while it’s in it’s box.
Ok, now that I have told you how great these watches are I’m going to let you in on a little secret! I have been eyeing these wood watches for quite some time now and while I am absolutely thrilled that the wonderful people at JORD were kind enough to send me a wood watch for my Handsome, I am a tiny bit jealous he is the one getting this beautiful watch. Maybe on Christmas morning I’ll give him a BIG hint that for Valentines Day I would love to have the CORA series maple & silver of my very own.
An added benefit; JORD offers custom sizing and FREE worldwide shipping!
So, If you you have someone special in your life give them the gift of something truly special…A JORD Wood Watch!
**I received this beautiful JORD Wood Watch in exchange for this post. The opinions are all mine. I must tell you I have been interested in a JORD wood watch for quite some time and I couldn’t be happier that I was asked to review one.
