Time For Buying Christmas Gifts - Jord Wood Watches

The first door on my advent calendar was opened this morning which means its officially time to get organised for Christmas! I'm usually pretty ahead of the game when it comes to the easy bits,... watching Christmas films and eating Quality Street on the couch. When it comes to gift-buying I tend to be a bit more last-minute, despite my best intentions.

This disorganised approach to gift-buying may give the impression that I don't really put that much thought into what I'm getting for people, but it couldn't be further from the truth. I think about it way too long - still thinking when I should be buying! But I want to make sure I get the perfect presents for the people I care about. This year, in at least one instance, I think I've fully cracked it!

You see, I was offered the opportunity to try one of these absolutely gorgeous wood watches from Jord. These really are the most unique and lovely timepieces I've ever come across, and was very tempted to treat myself to one of their beautiful women's watches. My better nature won out eventually though when I realised what a perfect present this would make for one of the most important men in my life - my brother (it's ok, he won't read this!)

My best bro has started his teacher training this year so as well as not having his phone with him in the classroom to check the time, he needs to impress the future adults by looking both professional and super cool. Jord Wood Watches are perfect for both!

There are some great products to choose from in their men's watch range, but I picked the Dover Ebony and Copper watch. The simplicity of the black ebony of the strap really helped the details of the exposed cogs stand out, but mainly I thought the copper ring would be perfect for my copper-haired sibling!

With a final product this nice, it seems a little silly to start banging on about the presentation box that it comes in, but honestly this is like an extra gift in itself! Handsomely made from wood, the lid and drawer are both magnetised and everything is of the some excellent quality that Jord pride themselves on. The overall effect is one very sophisticated and special gift. A lot more so than the stack of comics I usually get him!

In fact, the only problem with the watch is that when I borrowed the other half's wrist to try it on, he got rather attached and now wants his own!

He might have to wait for another occasion now, but there's still plenty of time to order one of these for Christmas! Prices start from $129 (about £102) but shipping is free to the UK from the United States! Plus to help ease the financial burden at this time of year, you can get a $25 discount code if you enter your email address here! All adds up, right?

Good luck with any more Christmas shopping you have to do! Anyone nearly finished?
