My name is Kaylie! I started blogging over four years ago with the intention to show women that style comes in all shapes and sizes! After taking a trip to India last year, I re-branded The Sweltering Sweater into an ethical fashion blog. I want my readers to feel good about the clothes they're wearing, as well as where they came from! 

A Unique Twist on a Classic Gift: A Wooden Watch for Your Loved Ones

A Unique Twist on a Classic Gift: A Wooden Watch for Your Loved Ones

Do you have a love-hate relationship with your "gift giver" friends? You know, the ones who know exactly what you want for your birthday or Christmas or a Valentine's Day present without you having to tell them. I have friends who can walk into a store and see an item and say "____ would love that!" They always give you the best gifts, but then you are left feeling like your present of money or a store gift card was probably not as special as you thought it was going to be.

I can say, with full sincerity, that I am not one of those people. I always have trouble knowing what people like and I am usually the person who gives money because then I will  know that they enjoy whatever they buy with it.

Although I don't have a significant other to celebrate with this Valentine's Day, I wanted to be able to suggest a present that would be perfect for all my readers - mom or dad, your friends, your family or bae.

If you're looking for an item that is beautiful yet functional, timeless but trendy, or tough yet delicate, look no further than a JORD wooden watch.

Not only are JORD wooden watches like a piece of jewelry, but they also have purpose. Whether you're looking at classic pieces like the Cassia or Meridian styles, or you want to up the look of your Apple technology with a wooden wristband, there are unique wooden timepieces for BOTH men and women.

Beyond their beautiful aesthetics, JORD watches also are built to last. I live in Minnesota, where we have been experiencing record lows this year. The watch not only worked after sitting outside in the freezing temps for a few hours (yay for daytime FedEx deliveries), but it also is waterproof, so it won't get ruined when your brushing snow off of your windshield. 

If I haven't already convinced you that a JORD watch is the best present you can give, I will now:
