When I think of Father’s Day, I always think of the year that I was about 9 years old, and my sister was about 3. Mom had taken us shopping to buy something special for dad, and we picked a very nice leather belt, with a cool buckle to boot. We were so excited to give it to him that weekend! When we got home, we hid our gift so he wouldn’t find it beforehand.
Except when HE got home from work that day, my little sister piped up with a very loud, “Oh, daddy, I need to show you something!” and disappeared down the hallway. I was helping my mom set the table for dinner, so I didn’t pay her much attention…until she came flying into the living room waving around the belt we had purchased for my dad and shouting, “Look what we got you for Father’s Day!”
Needless to say, I was not a happy camper, and my poor dad ended up having to comfort two crying daughters while he still tried to convey his appreciation for the EARLY Father’s Day Gift!
These days things are a bit different. Each year, I try to figure out what my dad would like, and each year, he tells me he doesn’t need anything. I always find something to get for him, but he is one of the hardest guys in the world to shop for, I promise!
And THIS year, since my hubby made Mother’s Day (I called it a half-baked Mother’s Day, since I haven’t even given birth yet!) extremely special for me, I wanted to make Father’s Day special for him, too! So when Stacy from JORD contacted me about their line of watches, it was literally the perfect fit!
I’ve been following JORD for a while, because their watches aren’t like the average timepiece. JORD watches are made of WOOD.
And the fact that my hubby is a huge watch fanatic made the situation even better! He’s got about a dozen different watches: from sports watches to dress watches to one of those fancy Apple watches…but no wooden watches to speak of.
So, JORD sent me an absolutely BEAUTIFUL timepiece for my hubby! Check it out!
Obviously, the mechanisms are not wood, but everything else IS!
