Hey everyone! Are you looking for a gift idea for a young adult? If you’re like me, it’s hard to find this age a gift they will actually like or use. How many times have you just resorted to giving cash or gift cards to your twenty-something?
I had Jord watches contact me about giving one of their watches as a gift. My husband and I were saying “who wears watches anymore since we all have our phones?” Both my daughters, aged 19 and 22 piped up “We do!” After a decline for a while, with the rise of smartphones, watches now are being embraced by millennials. Not so much for the function but for the style. Sounds like a great gift idea to me!
Since my eldest daughter Kealan is graduating from college this spring, I decided to give her the watch (Sorry Sara! You can have that sweater that shrunk. Check the dryer!). Kealan is often my photographer so it was fun to turn this around and take photos of her in her natural element!
First off the packaging was beautiful. This would be easy to send through the mail as a gift because it comes wrapped in it’s own wooden box and they have engraving for the back of the watch too if you want a personalized message.
Second, this is a nice alternative to gold or silver watches, especially if you don’t know if the gift recipient wears more gold or more silver. The wood is a visually interesting alternative and goes well with my daughter’s outdoorsy lifestyle. She wanted us to hurry up and do the photos so she could start wearing it out and about!
If you’re interested, for When the Girls Rule readers, Jord watches is offering a $100 giveaway! It’s easy to enter here! You have until March 4th to enter and everyone who enters receives 10% off and one lucky reader will receive $100 towards a Jord watch! Good luck!
So, if you’re tired of struggling to find a gift they’d actually like or being lame and giving cash, I’d look into these watches as a gift. Hear that Sara? No more shrunken wool sweaters!
Anyway, I am on my way to North Carolina as you read this so my next posts will be from a warmer, sunnier place (I hope!). I left a day early to beat the giant snowstorm that is blowing through Michigan now! Have a great weekend everyone!
