The Perfect Father’s Day Gift

I’m not sure about you, but I always struggle with what to give my dad or mom for their respective days or birthdays. Coincidentally, my dad’s birthday is around mother’s day and my mum’s birthday is around father’s day. No. They did not each get a gift for each day. Like the child whose birthday was around Christmas, they had to suck it up and just get one. With father’s day approaching, JORD Watches sent me one of their beautiful wood watches and I think it would be the most unique gift for this father’s day and I thought I would share it with you!

The watch they sent me was the Olivia & Acacia from their Dover series and their men’s collection. It is a stunning watch. The detail that has gone into everything from the packaging to the wooden band and the hands of the watch is amazing. I was first impressed by how the package came in. I received it in a branded cardboard box, inside this box was a wooden box which stored the watch, a natural finishing oil, and a cleaning cloth. The box is strong and firm, and it even has a little drawer where you can put the cleaning cloth and oil, or even repurpose the box for something else.

If the detail in the watch is not enough for you, you can turn it into an engraved gift. When buying your selected watch, you can enter any text you would like to have engraved, how big you want it, and the placement of it on the watch. I think that adds a lot more touch and sentiment to a gift and I love that JORD offers this service. You can also engrave the box it comes it for an extra touch of love.

Not sure about you, but my main concern when shopping for anything wrist related is the fear of it not fitting right. I have a tiny, bony wrist and things usually don’t fit right. JORD has a measurements table you can use to know what will fit you best. The box also comes with some additional links and pins if you need to make it bigger, or they can be removed by you (or if you’re not comfortable, you can take it to a jeweler and they can do it for you!)

My dad is not really into watches or anything that goes on the wrists just because he finds them uncomfortable, but as soon as I showed him a picture of the watch, he was interested. My brother wants it, my boyfriend wants it, they’re all in love with this watch.

As part of this campaign, I have partnered with them to help you give dad the perfect gift this year! Every person who enters will be entered to win a $100 gift code to use on the JORD site. There will only be one lucky winner, but everyone else who participates will receive a $25 gift code. It is really simple – you have to fill out this form and that’s it! If you follow @jordwatches on IG that will be counted as an additional entry.

I would love it if one of you is the lovely winner as these are gorgeous watches, and their women’s collection is stunning as well. Really versatile and there’s one for everyone. Leave a comment below with any other father’s day ideas you have!

  • Everyone talks about eyebrows being sisters not twins... I feel the same way about eyelashes. Loved trying out the @marcbeauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. It's easy for this one to get on the clumpy side, but I think wiping the excess off really helps. What are your favorite mascara tricks to make them look more even?

  • Happy Wednesday!! Went foundation-less for this and forgot how much I like it! Before getting into makeup I would only do concealer and powder. After I got into makeup I started feeling like I HAD to wear some sort of base. You don't HAVE to do anything and you'll look gorgeous as long as you're feeling comfortable with yourself
💪🏼

Aquí me salte la base. Antes de que me obsesionada con el maquillaje solo usaba corrector y polvos. Luego empece a sentir que TENÍA que usar algún tipo de base. La verdad es que no TIENES que hacer nada. Te verás hermosa con tal de que te estás sintiendo cómoda!
