Conway Kosso & Midnight Blue

Have you guys heard of the five love languages? It’s OK, I thought it was super cheesy too when my friend first told me about it a few years ago. There’s something, something, gifts, something, and something else. Just kidding. They are: 1). Words of affirmation (awww, baaabbbbeeeee….. you’re like, literally the cutessstt), 2.) Acts of Kindess (Awwww, thankkssss babbeeeee for like, totally unplugging the toilet!) 3). Receiving gifts (Thanksssss babeeeeee, for the toilet plunger, I like, totes LOVE it). 4). Quality time (Awwww, thanks babeeeee, for sitting here with me on your phone while I go on my phone too). 5). Physical touch (oh em gee, he put his arm around me and ALSO held my hand. Double score).  Which one are you? Comment and let me know- I actually find it so interesting!

My love language to SHOW, so how I show people I love them, is gifts. People want me to draw their name when it comes to picking secret santa (I’m at least wanted in that sense, because I have a feeling people would not want my name picked to be on their team. For ANYTHING). There’s something about finding the perfect gift for someone that they mentioned they wanted 10 months before, and seeing their face when they realize you remembered. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been buying people gifts. And I absolutely love doing it.

Dane’s love language is NOT giving gifts. One time for Christmas, and this is not an exaggeration, we had been dating for almost five years, he gave me this little bag. It was tiny and pretty, and he even had a bow on it. I’m a woman and we had been together for FIVE years OK? What would any other normal woman out there think was in the bag? (or maybe HOPED would be in the bag?) You know what it was? Ready? A gift card. Wanna know the best part? It was to a Chinese restaurant. Yup. Dane gave me $50 to a Chinese restaurant for our fifth Christmas together. Because, and I quote…. “I thought you liked spring rolls?” I had to still wait two years longer for my ring. The worst part was I had to take him out for supper with MY gift card. So I didn’t even get $50 worth of spring rolls.

I love giving gifts. Gifts that mean something. Big or small. Gifts that you had to think about, not just ran to the mall and bought whatever was the first thing you saw hanging in a window display.

So of course I was excited when JORD Wood Watches reached out to me and let me choose a watch to gift Dane. If you know Dane, you know he loves working with wood. He loves to dream up furniture he’s going to build one day. He loves the smell of wood and pine trees, his jacket always smells of lumber. He’s always pounding a piece of wood with the palm of his hand to check the density, or hardness. I’m just assuming he is. He could just be doing it and have no clue what he’s doing, and I wouldn’t know the difference. So a wood watch for my wood and tree loving husband was perfect.

JORD believes that “the value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.” JORD means land, soil, earth in Danish.  So if you have someone in your life that loves the smell of pine trees, the sound of pine needles crunching underneath their feet, the feel of a piece of wood in between their hands, the way the grain of that wood maps out that trees life, a JORD watch would be the perfect gift. They offer a wide range of styles and colours, as well as personalized engravings.
