The Perfect Father’s Day Gift & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Party

June 2, 2016

Men are notoriously difficult to shop for, right?  So with Father’s Day just around the corner (June 19th!), I thought I’d suggest my favorite gift for a man, a JORD watch. 

what to buy your guy for Dad's day

I even got my camera shy husband to pose for a couple of pics.  No easy feat!  

what to buy your guy
Shannon is modeling the 94A series in Dark Sandalwood.  Check it out here. 
special watches for a special man

I’m modeling the men’s Fieldcrest Series in Dark Sandalwood (see here).  It is made for a man for sure, but I liked it on me as well! 

gifts for men, unisex watches

Both watches have a very unfussy masculine look that I really like. If you have a dad or husband who isn’t too big into jewelry (like mine) something like this might just be perfect. Jord has a variety of styles and price ranges.  Check them out for the perfect guy gift! They even come in a cool keepsake wooden box.

And here’s the amazing news:  Jord is offering my readers a e-giftcard for $25!  Use this code at checkout: DADfashionshouldbefun25

(Limited number of e-gift cards available.)

Remember: Dad’s Day is only 2 weeks away!

    So sorry I missed your link-up last week, dearest Dawn…as you know, I was taking a little time off with my family in Toronto!! These wooden watches by Jord are truly a unique twist on the classic timepiece, aren't they?? Very cool that the two of you are modelling a complementary set…and kudos to your hubby for bravely stepping in front of the camera today!! 😉
