You know how some things are just meant to be? From start to finish, it’s perfect timing, and there’s no doubt in your mind – it must be fate. Well, that’s exactly what happened with me and Jord Watches this past month. But first, let me back up a bit (so you can understand why)!
PSST! There’s a sweet giveaway at the end of this post too – dont miss out!
A little over 5 years ago, Daniel and I got married. Now, we’ve never exactly been the most traditional couple (i.e., my wedding dress was blush pink and we actually got married on the Super Bowl 😛 ), but since this anniversary was our first “milestone” year, I wanted to take a more traditional route gift-wise.
Since, traditionally speaking, the anniversary theme for 5 years is wood, and Daniel just so happens to love a good watch (I usually get him one for Christmas every year), it seemed like the perfect idea to get him one of Jord’s wood watches for our fifth anniversary. So, when Jord actually reached out to me to see if I would be interested in collaborating with them for Valentine’s Day, I was thrilled. It was perfect timing – it honestly felt like fate! After all, I was planning on buying his wood watch the very same day that they emailed me – and there’s nothing better than getting to work with a company that you’re already a huge fan of!
Now, I know not everyone may have an anniversary coming up to celebrate, but the good news is – Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! And what better reason do you need to treat the one you love (or ya know, yourself…#selflove y’all 😉 ) to one of these beautiful wood watches? You can even get them engraved to add that extra special little touch! I actually had Daniel’s engraved, but of course forgot to take a picture of the engraving itself. It says “Me and you, just us two – plus Cou.” It’s just a silly little thing we say to each other a lot (since it’s just the two of us and Coussie boy!), but it truly made his gift all the more meaningful.
As far as the actual watches we got, I decided on the Cassia in Zebra & Ivory, and chose the Hyde in Walnut & Black for Daniel. I love how even though the two are incredibly different, they still complement each other well. (Kind of like Daniel and I. 😉 ) Plus, they’re both timeless and simple, which is one of the reasons I was drawn to Jord’s unique wood watches to begin with! They’re really different, but still completely classic. Again…kind of like Daniel and I. Ha! Okay I’ll stop now.
If you’re still looking for a reason to go for one of these unique wood watches for you or your significant other, I’m actually partnering with Jord to give away 100 dollars towards the watch of your choosing! You can enter the giveaway here. Besides, everyone who enters will get a 10% off code either way – so it’s pretty much a win-win!
Perfect Timing Products
Jord’s perfect timing felt like fate to us. On February 3rd, Daniel and I celebrated 5 years of marriage with eachother, and this same month will also mark our 9th Valentine’s Day that we get to celebrate as a couple. What better way to measure the love we share than with time spent together? For this reason, these watches were a perfect and fitting gift for us. They remind us not only of the importance of time, but of the value of it – that our time together is precious, and every moment should be cherished. I hope that this Valentine’s Day you’re reminded to make every minute count – and it can’t hurt if you’ve got a Jord watch to help you do that. 😉
