I’ve heard it many times, “There is nothing greater than being a mom.” While I’m not one myself, I’m awed by the fact that every time I hear this, I’m watching the words come out of a somewhat exhausted-looking woman’s mouth. I can tell that underlying those words are hours, days, and years of worry, sleepless nights, and money hard spent. And I can’t find any other way to describe witnessing motherhood as witnessing a life of complete selflessness. While these two words can’t ever truly portray that amount of gratitude I have in my heart, I want to say to my own mom, thank you.
Mother’s Day is around the corner and chances are your mom, or your wife, to this day continues to run around the house, checking off her to-do lists, cleaning up after your family, cooking you dinner, and transporting your kids. Basically, everything you somehow never remember to do, yet she always does. Because Mom always knows the time and when to be where...
I came across a totally unique Mother’s Day gift idea to share with you.
Have you ever seen a wooden watch?
Now when it comes to shopping, I am one who tends to venture off the beaten path. If the rest of the world has it, I don’t want it. So as you can imagine, when I came across such a unique watch I didn’t think twice about getting one.
If you’re shopping for Mom, here is a link to the women’s watches. Or, if you’ve already fallen in love with the glowing mint-faced watch in this post, here is the link to this specific mint-faced watch.
Now that I own one, I can tell you what I love about it:
1. Shipping is free and mine arrived in two days!
2. The packaging makes for the perfect gift.
I opened the packaging to find this beautiful wooden keepsake box. Spend some time looking at this box because you’ll even see it has a little hidden drawer. Perhaps, the perfect place to store your most treasured rings or earrings.
3. The wood color on these watches is beautiful and so different than the typical metal watches.
And when you finally get past the packaging, you’ll notice your brand new watch resting on its little JORD pillow.
4. Because it’s wood, it’s lightweight.
Which means there’s no sweat piling up between your skin and the watch.
5. The face color options they have are so springtime and beautiful.
All of the models and colors for women can be found here.
And GUYS, men's models and colors can be found here
BONUS: Best of all, the company, JORD Watches, will engrave the watch for you. Honestly, could this timing be any more perfect for Mother’s Day?
If any moms are reading this, I wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day. Whether your kids are with you or far, know that your time is cherished and you are so greatly loved.
