It’s always a struggle to find the perfect holiday gift, isn’t it? Especially if you’re shopping for your husband. I don’t know about you, but my hubs is always my most difficult gift to buy. He’s a practical guy, so he always wants something useful. But if it’s something he really needs, he usually just goes out and buys it himself before the holidays. Grr!

And while I love a practical present, I want to get him something he wouldn’t normally buy for himself. It’s supposed to be a treat, right?


JORD Fieldcrest in Zebrawood and Maple

JORD to the rescue! You all know how much I love my JORD wood watch (the Fieldcrest in Zebrawood and Maple). So when JORD emailed to let me know they now offer watch engraving, I knew I had my practical-yet-special gift for my husband. A watch is the ultimate in useful gifts, and the wood engraving makes it a special treasure for my special someone.

I chose the Conway in Zebrawood and Dark Sandalwood for Jeff. He always admired the distinct wood grain of the zebrawood in my Fieldcrest, and I love the stylish addition of the dark sandalwood and metal accents.


JORD now offers watch engraving! Shown here is the block lettering option.

For the engraving, I chose the block lettering with the simple message: “Love you forever. – Donata”

Because it’s a watch, it measures time, I love him forever…get it? (Cheeseball alert, I know. Haha).

I think one of the sweetest parts of this gift is that the message is on the back plate of the watch, so only he and I know it’s there (and now you, since you’ve seen it! Lol).


I highly recommend an engraved gift for someone close to you this season. The JORD watches are stylish, versatile statement pieces that would work with anyone’s wardrobe. I can’t get enough…in fact, I’ve already got my eye on the Frankie in Dark Sandalwood and Smoke for my next one!
