When a dear friend lives at a distant, you interact through technology. Email, Facebook chats, and rare telephone chats keep you connected. While this is lovely, there is something special about a unique, tangible, daily reminder of your friendship. I wanted to give a dear friend a thoughtful one-of-a-kind gift this year, so I chose a JORD engraved watch.
My friend is vibrant, intelligent, generous, and thoughtful. We both moved to new homes awhile back and I miss her terribly. I wanted to find her something unique, lovely, personal – an engraved gift offered the perfect solution. I knew from past experience that JORD watches are timeless, quality gifts. When I discovered that JORD now offers watch engraving, I knew I’d found the perfect gift.
JORD offers 11 different choices for watch engraving and the choices vary from subtle to bold. Watches with engraving options come from the JORD Reece, Fieldcrest, Frankie, and Conway collection. They include dark, light, and combination wood options. Watch faces are round, square, simple, and detailed. I honestly had difficulty choosing just one for my friend.
I ultimately selected the Reece Zebrawood and Emerald wood watch. This elegant beauty has the striking dark and light woods contrasted with the eye-catching emerald face. The watch also has the highest character engraving limit at 35 characters. If you prefer 100 characters and wood engraving, you can opt to engrave your message on the gorgeous wood box that encases all JORD watches.
Selecting a message for this watch proved a bit challenging because 35 characters required me to be creative and brief. I felt up to the challenge, though, and started by searching her favorite quotes on Facebook. I almost went with a short quote but wanted to personalize my engraving a bit more. When my friend moved, she had a party and someone left a notebook to write farewell messages and good wishes. I always loved L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables and her take on “kindred spirits” and “bosom friends,” so I quoted Anne in my message to my friend.
I decided to personalize my JORD engraved watch with the words “Kindred Spirits Always. Love M.” This captured the spirit of our friendship in a way that I hope keeps her smiling every time she sees it.
