Wooden Watches Are A Thing, Who Knew?

2014 June 1

Recently I shared a few gift ideas for Father’s Day.
Personally I think dude gifting is SUPER HARD.

Last year my daughter needed a gift for a guy in her Band for the Secret Santa gift exchange.

Okay? What do you buy for guys?
For a girl. EASY. Go buy ACCESSORIES. Done. The end.
Jewelry, sunglasses, scarves, purses, gloves, hats, backpacks, makeup.
ALL. DAY. LONG.

They don’t wear a lot of accessories!
We all know cufflinks sit in the back of bathroom drawers.

What if he doesn’t golf, he has enough neck ties, owns a large bottle of the only cologne I allow him to wear, and well…. What else is left?

Sunglasses and Watches.
That’s what.

I already bought my dear husband a pair of really nice sunglasses last year after he had his eyes all ‘cataract-surgery-improved’. (Translation: IF your eyes are so bad they won’t touch you with laser, you can get new lenses instead!)

That leaves… a new watch?
Could totally work.

I’ve got an idea for you…

 Jord Wood Watch company asked me to take a look at their lineup of wooden watches.

Wait? WOOD?
As in trees?
As in … huh?

I was completely intrigued. I picked one out to surprise my husband for his birthday and an early Father’s Day Gift.

I didn’t even know it was a thing?


Jord Wood Watches Sully cherry and maple gift idea for father's day dadWow look at these watches? The choices and variations—look at the contrasting maple and cherry—kind of surprisingly beautiful ya know? And the prices range from $120 to $249.

I think they are kind of slick and dressy. But my husband saw the watch and immediately decided it was a great casual watch?

I guess either way, if you want to dress it up or wear it with your favorite worn-in jeans be my guest!

Don’t you think your Father-Husband-Brother-Son would LOVE one of these cool watches?

NOTE: Jord is located in St. Louis and when you order you get free shipping. (Love that.)

Plus a little birdie told me they are working on a line of wooden watches for the ladies….

NOW we’re talkin’.
Mother’s Day next year for me I think?? SHHHH

We had a little TOO much fun on our Father’s Day photo shoot.. my husband is a ham and ALL too willing to help me out with my Jord Watches project…  For your enjoyment here are the out-takes!

Disclosure: Jord Wood Watches asked me to share my opinion about their watches. We received a watch at no cost to us. They did not know about my inability to find dude gifts. —PS if you need a teen boy gift idea… we asked after the gift exchange last year and they all wanted gift cards to Chick-Fil-A. DUH Right?

One last photo…. Nice eh?

    Wow. It’s beautiful. I had no idea anyone made watches out of wood! This would make a great Father’s Day gift or even a nice graduation gift. Do they make them for women? Maybe if I wore a watch I could stay off my phone!
