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!

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️

Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
•
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️

Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
•
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!

Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
  • Happy Sunday! Today’s #motd featuring some of my favorite products 😍 The @anastasiabeverlyhills Soft Glam palette has gotten a lot of love from me - even more than #modernrenaissance. The @hourglasscosmetics Ilumee Sheer Trio is so so good and I’m happy I was able to pick it up. Definitely recommend these two if you’ve been thinking about it
•
Feliz Domingo! El #maquillajedeldia incluye algunos de mis favoritos 😍 La paleta #softglam de #anastasiabeverlyhills me encanta, es súper versátil y la he usado un montón (ahora la pueden conseguir en @blushbaroficial). El trío de #hourglasscosmetics es necesario si les gustan los productos en crema.
