Over the last few months, I have seen a lot of instagram posts on the JORD Wood Watch collection. I thought,


Now that’s a watch I can get behind!”


With each one I saw, I loved them even more. The decision was easy when it was time to shop around. This being our first Valentine’s Day, and one we would be spending on vacation, I wanted to make it special.

I couldn’t wait to get this cool watch so I could see it in person. Of course, I opened the box and inspected it in its entirety. I was floored as to how detailed the wrapping was. The box and packaging had been so nicely put together I almost didn’t want to disturb it.

But, I wanted to share it with you, so I did. No worries, I easily put it all back together and packed it in our luggage for our upcoming ski trip to Lake Tahoe.


The Unique Watch that Made His Day


The JORD Wood Watch that I chose was from the Frankie series in zebrawood and champagne. It is the perfect blend of color that will look great against any look. I knew it would be easily worn for any occasion, and I knew it was just the right amount of laid back for my man’s style.

My Valentine’s Day Surprise


I was so excited to give it to him. I could hardly wait to get into our room at the Ritz-Carlton Northstar so I could execute my Valentine’s Day surprise and give him this super cool watch.


It was the sweetest thing. Not only was this a unique watch, but it was the first quality watch he ever owned. He’s a frugal man. But even a frugal man deserves a stunning timepiece. After all, in my opinion, a man’s timepiece speaks volumes.

I could hardly wait for him to come into the room to the perfect wooden box on the bed. He smiled this sheepish grin and said, “Oh my, what’s this?”. His eyes lit up as he unveiled his new super cool watch. He was floored. I don’t know what amazed him more, the elegance of his new watch, or the fact that it was crafted entirely from wood!

He was SO happy, SO thrilled, he immediately put it on. I knew he loved it because I kept catching him from the corner of my eye staring at it. I’ve never seen him so interested in the time before!


It has been one week since I gave him this gift and he’s worn it at every given opportunity. It looks stunning on him, really, and it’s a perfect fit for his style. I’m really happy with my choice and more than anything, I’m really happy that he loves it.
