You know who are hard to buy for? Men. Seriously, can I get an amen? I feel like whenever it’s time to buy something special for Josh, my mind goes blank. New socks? Pajama pants? How about some hair styling taffy? That’s about all I’ve got.

Well, my friends, I found a winner. Cue the sirens. I have the perfect answer to the age old question of “what do I buy him!?” (Fill in your blank, because I know you have one! Dad, grandpa, father-in-law, boyfriend, spouse, boss … that impossible-to-buy-for man in your life!)

Let me back up.

When the babies were born, Josh got me this beautiful necklace with their names on it. I love my necklace so much and wanted to get him something equally as thoughtful to mark this special time. But I had nothing. He doesn’t wear cufflinks, or necklaces, and doesn’t carry a set of keys around, so even a keychain wasn’t an option. (Although let’s be honest, are key chains still a thing?)

Enter my gift-buying solution: a unique, wooden watch.

Yes, you heard me right – a custom designed wooden watch!

You should have seen Josh’s face when I gave it to him! HE LOVES IT. I feel like I struck wife gold. My dad quickly noticed too and couldn’t stop gushing over how nice it is either (which means I know what he’s getting for Christmas, ha!) But seriously, you guys, let me introduce you to JORD Watches (pronounced like toad but with a Y). I am so thankful to have found them because it’s going to make gift buying so much easier, for men AND women!

They have two gorgeous lines of both men’s and women’s watches, both custom designed by artists and designers and are unlike any others I have ever seen. I love how some of the designs are quite minimalistic, like the one I got for Josh, which is the ebony and iron series, while others offer more vibrant colors of wood and designs. JORD even offers watch engraving services, which makes it perfect for adding a little extra something to such a timeless piece. (I added his life verse to the back of his watch, which he loves.)

Here’s the thing – socks get old. But watches, well, they are classic. I know Josh will be wearing this for years to come. So, if you’re looking for an awesome gift to give the man in your life – whether it’s your boyfriend or husband, or your dad or in-law, this is it. You can’t go wrong with a unique wooden watch that’s bound to start a conversation.


Funny enough, the thing that both he and my dad can’t stop talking about, is the cedar watch box it comes in! It has a pull out drawer, which I have now seen a million times, and a polishing cloth and a finishing oil pen. Its little details like these that have made a big impression on him and everyone else he has shown it to.
