Can you believe Valentine's Day is less than a month away?
Gift giving for Valentine's Day is always a struggle for me because our anniversary, Christmas, and birthdays are also in the same 4 month span. I always run out of ideas by the time February rolls around, so I was really excited to discover these gorgeous wooden watches from Jord. Finding something that balances romantic with practical isn't easy, but Jord definitely nails it with their new twist on a classic gift.
Looking at other men's watches I was disappointed to find that the majority of them were pretty flashy, with metal bands or busy faces. That's definitely not a style I could convince Tyler to wear, since he typically leans towards a more laid back look. In fact, I had previously bought him a FitBit, which he had also deemed too over-the-top for everyday wear. When we browsed Jord's selection together, Tyler was excited about the simpler designs, especially the Frankie which is what I ended up getting him in Ebony & Gold.
While I wasn't able to surprise Ty with the watch itself (I'm horrible at keeping secrets and I wanted his input on which design/wood type he liked the most), there was still plenty to surprise him with once it arrived. The packaging alone was really cool, since the watch comes in a padded wood box with a lid and drawer to store the cleaning wipe in! But my favorite part was definitely the back of the watch, where I was able to have a message engraved in the wood. Being able to personalize it with the special way I always say "I love you" is really what made a sentimental gift that we could both appreciate for a long time.
Now that he finally has a watch that isn't too glitzy for his taste, Tyler has loved wearing one. The dark wood is masculine without feeling bulky, and goes with everything in his closet. I like the matte appearance as opposed to shinier metals, and he likes that it feels lightweight on his wrist. The only thing missing is a watch for me! After seeing how much he loves his, I told him to add one to my wish list as well.

Thank you to Jord for collaborating on this post! The watch was provided at no cost, in exchange for my review. However, I only partner with companies I genuinely like, both in service and in quality - Jord is exceptional in both. All opinions shared in this post are my own (and Tylers)!
