Valentines Day Gift Inspiration for that Special Someone

Hello loves, hope you are all doing great. It’s been an incredibly busy start to the new year and I can’t quite believe it’s already turned February. All the Christmas and New Year celebrations (and lingering hangovers…) are well and truly out the way and I always look forward to celebrating other exciting holidays that are coming up. Let’s be honest, February is known for one thing, and one thing only: Valentines Day. Love it or Loath it, it’s hard to escape it and whilst some people do hate the commercialisation of the holiday, I actually think it’s a lovely idea to tell the ones you love how much they mean to you (I mean, I know we really should do this all year round but Valentines is always a nice reminder …) and what better way to do that, than with a brand new luxury watch.

Last week, I was contacted by JORD watches who specialise in expertly crafted wooden watches. I was thrilled at the opportunity to add to my growing watch collection and jumped at the chance to review one of these beauties. I’ve never come across a wooden watch before and was naturally intrigued. I opted for a unique women’s watch ‘Cassia’ in the colouring Walnut and Vintage Rose, which is a gorgeous blend of warm caramel and rose gold hues. There is an elegant golden detail along the wrist band which adds the perfect amount of subtle glamour. This classic, timeless yet contemporary watch is not just great at telling the time, but also the ideal finishing touch to any outfit. Why not use this Valentine’s Day to spoil that special someone in your life? JORD have a great variety of both unique men’s and women’s watches and also offer an engraving service, so you can truly give your loved one a personalised watch. JORD’s brand message is simple: ‘the value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count’. Well, I couldn’t agree more.

When the watch arrived, I was instantly impressed with the sturdy packaging. Each JORD watch comes parcelled up in a luxurious wooden box filled with everything you would need: additional watch links, polishing cloth and natural finishing oil. Like most items I receive for my blog, I love to be entirely honest with you guys. When the watch is shipped, if you live in the UK, you will have to pay custom fees so bear this in mind as it will add to the total cost. Getting this watch delivered to Scotland cost an additional £16.06 *damn those pesky custom charges!!* I also expected the Walnut and Vintage Rose watch to be lighter in colour and tone. Don’t get me wrong, whilst it is still gorgeous, I expected the wood to be slightly brighter and lighter but JORD do give warning about this – it is made from natural wood so the colour will vary between each watch. Once I realised this, it actually made me appreciate the watch even more – this is a truly unique piece, nobody else will have a watch like this. Wooden watches also seem to require more care than a typical timepiece. The wood material is sensitive to water and heat, but JORD do a great job at explaining all of this in their detailed product booklet that you find the package, so make sure you read it! :-)

  10. More often, these dealers grab the customers by attracting them through different interesting offers. And, ultimately, the innocent purchasers are trapped in the plot and their bucks get wasted. watches
