May is upon us, which means summer is almost here. Before we jump into warmer weather though, Mother’s Day happens. This year, celebrate your mom by making it a timeless event. A mother is the one person who deserves to be celebrated every day of the year and never forgotten.
As as mom, I now understand that this job is 24/7 and goes well beyond the mentioned 18 years. Point in case, I still call my mom daily to ask silly questions like what to do when my child has a cut that won’t stop bleeding. ((I actually call her for most parenting decisions because she’s the experienced one here, LOL)).
When thinking of “timeless” I naturally began to think about a present that would last and not go out of style. Yet, something practical and useful for every day life. That is when it hit me, a watch. A watch is used to tell time, but as a mom we know “the days are long, but the years are short.” The idea of a watch for Mother’s Day represents all the hours and days moms have put into making every minute of every day the best they possibly can.
Watches can be a dime a dozen, but I have stumbled across an amazing company that puts a natural twist on a typical watch. JORD watches are created right here in St. Louis. Not only that, but they are actually made from….Wood. Yes, you read that correctly. I will be the first to admit that I was a little skeptical, but ever part of this company goes above and beyond any expectations.
JORD watches are available in a variety of sizes and styles, each one hand-crafted from wood. Each piece creates a unique watch, different from anything you have ever seen before. Not only are the watches gorgeous, but can we just talk about how lightweight they are?!?! I own several name brand watches and each one feels slightly heavy on my wrist, but JORD watches feel so lightweight and comfortable. I was actually shocked because I didn’t realize the oversized watch style I loved could be so light. ((If you’re loving the watch above, click here.))
As if the watch on its own wasn’t enough to sell you over, the casing that comes with each purchase is out of this world. Sticking to what the company knows, each watch is accompanied with a wooden box for storage. Literally, the nicest box I have ever own. It seals shit with magnets, which means my cute little toddler couldn’t open it on her own. Additionally, the box has a little drawer on the outside where you can store the cleaning cloth and extra links. Such a well-thought and well-constructed design from this company, you can tell they want their pieces to last.
If you are looking for something for Mother’s Day, look no further than JORD. Each watch is beautifully crafted and creates that timeless piece your mom will love. If you’d like to give it an extra touch, you can have your piece engraved as well.
