When shopping for my dad it can be quite difficult finding him a gift that he will like. We have different styles and tastes. He is into watches and a few years ago his watch no longer worked and he was very disappointed. I knew this year that I was out on a mission to find him a new watch for Christmas. There were a lot of options out there, but I kept going back to Jord Wood Watches. 

When I was looking at their website the offered a variety of beautiful women and men watches. They have a variety of different collections. The faces of the watches and different colors. There is a watch for everyone.

One night I was talking with my dad and I asked if him if he ever heard about Jord Wood Watches and he told me no. Then he looked them up on his Ipad and I asked him what his top five picks were and which was his favorite. For his favorite watch he chose Conway Walnut and Jet Black. The Face of the watch is Jet Black and it looks stunning. When we went through the process of ordering the watch it was quite an interesting process and the different options that they offer. The options that I like that they offer is you can have it engraved to your watch to personalize it. I decided to have it engraved with my father initials JRW. Which looks amazing on the backside of the watch. It was smooth and neat. I also learned something new while ordering the watch for my father . They ask for measurement in centimeters to get the perfect fit for your watch. They offer the option to print out a ruler so you can measure your wrist or if you a tape measure at home you can also use that option also. 

When we received our Jord Wood Watch it came in a slick black shipping box with their name on it. It was a nice box and when you opened it up it had nice packing where it kept the wood box the watch came in just in the right place. When you opened up the nice wood box our watch was nestled in the box on a little pillow that fit just right in the box. I was surprised that it came with a $115 care package free of charge with your watch. The care package includes a collector's edition humidor cedar watch box, cleaning cloth, and a 6 month suppy of JORD Preserve a custom-formulated wood treatment gel with applicator pen. 

What is amazing about Jord Watches if your looking to buy a present for that someone special and you can't pay in full they are willing to give you the option to purchase your watch in three payments. With those three payments are interest free and that can't get better than that. Their watches range from $139-$495. They also offer free standard shipping. 

Lastly Jord Wood Watches are offering my readers a chance to win a $100 gift code towards the purchase any watch in their collection.

Play Vision Crayola Slyme Holiday Gift Guide


We are huge fans of Crayola products and we are excited to announce that their is a new product this year that my kids love. Crayola came out with a new Slyme for kids that would make a great stocking stuffer idea. I know my daughter loves making different types of slyme. Although we have decided that making slyme in the house is banned for awhile because it was starting to make a huge mess. Also my daughter was obsessed in finding different recipes and different products in our home and our household items were running out.

Crayola offers a few different packs of Slyme that comes in different colors. We received the blue, pink and purple slyme colors. Each Slyme comes 120 g each. They have six color Slymes. Each Slyme does have glitter in they Slyme. My daughter absolutely loves the texture and feel of Slyme. This will make a great stocking stuffer for the kids this holiday. I would recommend to have this Slyme supervised because it seems like my child likes to put them places that it shouldn't be. You can find this product on their website below.

Spice Madam Review Holiday Gift Guide


Do you have a cook in the family? Are you looking for a special gift for that special cook? Than you may want to take a look at the subscription service Madam Spices. What makes this subscription service special is that it will take you to destinations around the world. 

When we received our Madam Spices subscription box in the mail it came in a small rectangular box. When we opened it up we got some cute cut up paper with a note from their company which was a nice touch. After removing the paper we came to a nice wrapped up tissue paper with a sticker which added a nice touch to the box. We gently opened up the tissue paper to see what was inside. 

When I opened up the tissue paper the first card that I took out of the box said Biennvenue France. That is when I know that my box would feature spices from France. On this card it said welcome to France. It gave you a list of did you know facts. Which was nice learning a few things about France. Then we received three little bags of spices that we can use for the recipes that they included. We received the Herbs De Provence, Nutmeg and French Lavender. Then they provided 5 recipes in the box that you could use your spices for. They gave you a variety of different spices to make wonderful foods that our featured over in the French culture. Then they provided a card that shows you the France shopping list and menu plan and cooking guide. The last card is French Spice where it describes the spices that they sent you and the descriptions of them. 

Overall this is a fun box and it would make the perfect gift for someone who loves to cook. This would be a fun subscription box that they would receive in the mail and they would be able to use this on new recipes for the family. You can find their subscription boxes on their website on the link below.
