Whether it's the holiday season or any time of year, I always like to find the kinds of gifts that are both thoughtful AND unique. Another adjective to add into that is USEFUL, because there's nothing worth than a gift that ends up sitting untouched in its gift bag for months.
A go-to source for thoughtful gifts is JORD. I have shared them here at ThriftyJinxy in years past, so you might remember their wood watches that my husband has always loved, but they have expanded with even more gift options.
As I mentioned, hubby has always loved his Jord wood watches, but hadn't been wearing them recently since he switched to an Apple watch. You wouldn't believe how excited he was when he found out that Jord now offers Apple bands!
Signature Apple Bands in Exotic Wood & Leather – Know any guitar lovers? JORD’s limited line of harmonic apple bands features woods from American guitar designers. In 2019, JORD’s wood Apple bands were voted “best” of the year by Forbes! These bands are a strong statement piece to really dress up any Apple watch!
What's even cooler is that these bands are an option on Jord's custom gift sets. You can scroll through and pick any watch you like and the gift set comes with matching wood sunglasses along with a cool, collapsable JORD sunglass case. It's such an awesome gift presentation.
I’ve worked with JORD for a bunch of years now – as I get to know them more, I’ve realized some interesting facts about this brand that we have all seen around Instagram! Did you know that JORD is considered a small business & has less than 10 employees? They are located in St Louis & are family owned! WHO KNEW? In 2020, we are all doing our best to support our local shop & restaurant owners, so I feel good about supporting JORD – it’s a safe, online way to shop this season and #shopsmall.
The great thing is that JORD offers fast, free worldwide shipping to your door! In this day and age, I really don’t want to go to a busy store, so I LOVE THAT! Each watch can be professionally-sized as well – you just have to measure his wrist in his sleep ; ) Generous returns and exchanges & great warranties make purchases for loved ones worry-free.
Unique Gift Ideas from Jord
Ethical Handbag Collection for Her – JORD’s newest line of accessories is a collection of luxury handbags! They come in lots of colors & styles – crossbody, backpack, clutch… The cool thing is that the purses are made ethically of JORD’s own type of vegan “leather” – created from cork! But don’t worry – the material is nothing like your wine cork : ) It is soft and super durable!
The Barista Watch Gift Set for Coffee Lovers – One of the things JORD is known for is the materials they incorporate into their unique accessories. So they have developed a way to suspend real coffee beans around the watch! The dial features the color of the roasting process & the deep roasted coffee color band is created from JORD”s vegan cork “leather”. It’s available in a gift set featuring local St Louis coffee beans & a collector’s thermos. The watch is minimal in style and size – perfect for any coffee lover on your list!
The Harper Limited Edition Gift Set – this watch series has beautiful marble and stone faces & interchangeable wood & padded leather watch bands. The cool thing is that each watch is unique because the pattern & color on the face is unique. The face itself has a modern retro feel that I love & can be personalized with your choice of bands : )
Burmese Dover II Automatic Watch- This is the prettiest watch! The wood is a warm cedar tone contrasted with dark gunmetal steel fittings. This variety of Padauk wood is rare, so this is a limited edition timepiece for this year. The Dover has a skeleton face that allows you to see the automatic watch movement (no batteries needed!)- super cool classic gift! My favorite part is that it comes with a special engraved gift box.
Sunglasses & Blue Light Glasses – I WANT them all! They have a huge variety of vintage-inspired and modern sunglasses – great lenses and finished with cool, natural materials. This year, we’re all staring at our devices even more than usual. It gives me a headache! Don’t worry, JORD is on top of it! Check out their blue light glasses with natural accents ; )
Steel wool & Carling retro hats for men – Need one last easy gift to finish up your list? Check out JORD’s steel wool flannel and signature, structured caps!
I hope this list points you in the right direction to finding the perfect gifts for family and friends.
