5 year anniversary gift - JORD wood watches

6 years ago I met my now husband and 5 years ago I married him. So yes, it is our 5 year anniversary this month - woohoo let's celebrate! In France we call the 5th wedding anniversary "nuptials of wood" were you're supposed to give your spouse a gift made out of wood. A few month after we met and while we were still living far away from each other, on two different time zones, I got Anthony a watch. It was a special one because it had two dials for each of our time zones. One was set to his time in San Francisco, and another for my time, in Paris. So he could always know what time it was for me without having to calculate 9 hours ahead.

When I found out about these unique JORD wood watches I felt like it was meant to be. And I have to be honest with you, at first I wasn't so sure about them and thought they would be too heavy. But they're really super pretty and light. Everything about the watch is made to perfection - from the packaging to the details of the wood. I loved that I could adjust the wrist band to make it fit perfectly.

I wanted to get two different models for us but still wanted them to match as much as possible. I got the model HYDE in Walnut & Black for Anthony and the model FRANKIE in Dark Sandalwood & Smoke for myself. I now love that we have matching watches. And I love that we are now on the same time zone and don't need two dials - I mean life is really much easier and fun that way! ;)

Oh and a small detail but kind of important to me - I never really thought about it before but wood surprisingly matches with lots of colors. So I'm gonna be able to mix and match it with a lot of outfits. Big bonus point!
They are the perfect gift so if you want to make someone else, or yourself, happy just go shop them at JORD. There are lots of options for everyone's taste.

I'm also doing a giveaway on my Instagram soon, so if you want a sweet deal stay tuned! Till then have fun shopping.
