As my husband has grown emotionally, intellectually and professionally, I wanted to do something to honor his growth. I have enjoyed seeing him rise to the occasion when things got tough during studies while in dental school. I've smiled as he explained procedures that he was once unsure about to being confident enough to teach someone else. 

Being in the front row seats, on the sidelines and backstage crew of his life, is an honor. 

When he had finished his second year of dental school and Midwestern University did their "bridging ceremony" as they graduate from didactics to clinic, I gave Ric his first 'professional' watch. The Dover - Olive and Acacia wood watch from Jord (pronounced Yode) 
Luxury Watches.

When I first came across Jord watches, I knew I couldn't have found a more perfect watch speaking 'Ric'. My husband is a man of the outdoors. Being in the sun, mountains and nature is his happy place. Where he rejuvenates and recharges. A watch made of wood, yes, that's a watch for Ric.

*Fun fact, Ric's wedding ring is also a wood ring.

To keep on with the tradition I had set for him and his 'professional advancements', I knew another watch was in order for a graduation gift. Again, I partnered with Jord Watches to gift him the perfect men's watch. For graduation I chose the Hyde Ebony and Iron. It is super minimal and masculine. We engraved the bottom to say his new title and the date it was earned.

The cedar box they are stored in can also be customized and engraved. These boxes are high quality and perfect to keep the watches safe from kiddie hands. They are beautiful, enough that I don't even mind having it sit on our counter or bedside table!

If you search any 'best gifts for men', 'top ten gifts for the man in your life' or '88 best gifts for men' list and you will always, always, always find a watch. That's because a watch is classic. A watch is timeless -- pun intended ;) They hold their value, they hold memory and they hold meaning. A watch can be passed down from generation to generation and when received is an honor.

If you're special man has an event coming up, honor him. Father's Day is on the horizon too. Do him a solid and buy him an esteemed watch. Because I love ya'll so much, I wanted to give ya a jumpstart on that gift. Jord and I are doing a giveaway to help you give the perfect gift!
