gifts for him: wood watches

The holidays are approaching very quickly and I bet many of you, like me, have barely even started your holiday shopping! I found the perfect gift for the guys in your life – dads, brothers, boyfriends, husbands, FWBs, etc. JORD Wood Watches just launched some new designs in their men’s watch collection, and (spoiler alert, Ryan) I had to get one for my brother for Christmas (now we’ll see if he actually reads my blog).

Continue to the bottom of this post for a JORD Wood Watch gift card giveaway!

I think he will absolutely love this unique watch! The wood from around the world makes the watch extra special. I love how it looks in person – such a cool, modern & sophisticated style for guys. This is the perfect, casual/daytime watch to wear daily at work or on the weekends. I love their tag line too: “We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.”

I really like the idea of giving a watch as a gift because it’s something that will be treasured and used for a long time. My brother is so hard to buy gifts for, so I wanted to get him something that’s simple and timeless (and tells time!) since he’s an outdoorsy guy who doesn’t like flashy things. He and my dad are always building stuff from scratch – I’m sure many of you have seen my awesome furniture or my nephew and nieces’ ‘playhouse’ in their backyard that’s about the same size as my tiny San Francisco apartment. So, I thought a lightweight, wood watch would be perfect for him! I chose the Conway Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood for my brother because I think the dark wood looks nice and will go well with any style – dressy or casual. I know he’s going to love it!

Being the travel fiend that I am, I was really interested in where in the world the material from this specific wood watch was from! The wood for my brother’s watch is found in Africa – the Zebrawood is from West Africa (Congo) and the Sandalwood is from East Africa (Mozambique). They list where all their materials are on their website here.
