6.21.13: A Unique Engraved Anniversary Gift

Tomorrow will mark 4 years of marriage for me and Brad. In some ways, it's hard to believe that we've been married that long, but in other ways (good ways), it feels like we have been together forever. And I suppose that in some ways, we have.

Generally for our anniversaries, we swap the traditional gifts. For the first (paper) anniversary, I made a Love Notes journal that we pass back and forth. The second (cotton), I made a sock bouquet (Brad is obsessed with argyle socks). For the third (leather), I bought a leather journal. I'll be sharing this year's traditional gifts later in the week, but I also wanted to do something a little extra for Brad this year. It's been a bit of a crazy year, and I wanted something meaningful and useful.
A big thanks to Jord for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.


I learned a few months back that Jord Wood Watches is now offering engraving on the backs of their watch faces. And I've been wanting one for Brad ever since. I love how meaningful something as simple as engraving can be. I chose the watch I wanted quickly and without much trouble. I knew that I wanted something in a dark wood and with a round face, so that was no trouble at all. I went with the Hyde in walnut and black and I am absolutely in love.

I had a much more difficult time choosing what to have engraved on the back. I knew that I wanted it to reflect our marriage. I considered a few words from our song. I considered something like "love you forever." I even thought of doing something more punny... "love for all time." But eventually, I settled on something very simple. Our wedding date.

I'm in love with how the engraving turned out. I love that it's a constant reminder for Brad of the day that started it all. To me, our wedding date is a symbol of choosing each other. It's the day we made sacred promises or vows to always love and care for each other. It's the day that we committed to give our whole selves to another person--the person. The day that we said it's forever.

Which is why I'm so pleased with this unique gift for Brad. It says so much while saying so little. It's just what I had hoped it would be. So if you're in the market for a unique gift, make sure to check out Jord Wood Watches. They have amazing selections of both men's watches and women's watches that will be sure to impress. And the option to engrave makes these wood watches an even more special gift.

Brad loves his watch and I was so glad that it was ready to go earlier than I had anticipated! I was able to give it to him on our Seattle getaway, which made for the perfect surprise!

  1. Love this review! I am adding this to my list of gifts I can give the husband. Why are they so hard to buy for?!

  2. Last year, I felt we got really lucky when we found out this space was available on the date we wanted - and now I know just how lucky we were! I can't recommend these Chicago wedding venues enough! I have nothing but positive things to say about this place.
