Time to relax with JORD Wooden Watches

Jord wood watches

Give the gift of time by giving mom a break (watch the kids, take her to a quiet spot, etc), and again literally by gifting her a uniquely crafted JORD wooden watch. 

JORD wood watches are the most unique watch because they use sustainable, diverse wood sourced all over the world! The various grains and natural colors of each hand-crafted watch ensure no two are the same… just like your favorite mom!

The Fieldcrest black was one of my favorites in the JORD collection. The frontspiece is large and bold and can be worn by both men and women. Truth: hubby has worn this most of the time because he thinks it’s awesome, and it IS! The face isn’t overly-large, but, even though you can add and remove links to resize the watch, because my wrists are very small, I’d probably get the smaller Ely watch.

This watch speaks of simple elegance and is great for everyday wear. Made with Citizen Miyota movements, the hands are stainless steel over a vivid wood grain face. It has a scratch-proof glass face and single action locking clasp – truly, a well-made watch! 

Check out JORD watches and visit them on Facebook. If you have a JORD watch, tweet or instagram a snapshot with #jordwatch!

Life is S’well when you are well hydrated!Swell stainless steel bottles

When mom has a few moments alone, she’ll want to kick back with a cool refreshing beverage! Put it in a stainless steel S’well bottle for a pretty and useful gift – every mom should stay well hydrated and that’s easier to do with a pretty water bottle!

Made with the highest grade stainless steel (18/8) and without BPA or toxins, S’well bottles make the perfect choice for a sustainable family!

I loved how the bottles didn’t get slippery condensation on the outside, making them easier to use and carry. Plus, they fit in a standard cup holder and will accept narrower-style ice cubes. S’well keeps water cool for 24 hours and hot for 12! Yes! Hot or Cold drinks can go into this bottle!

In addition to the elegance of a beautifully designed S’well bottle, these bottles do good too! Each bottle represents 3,000 plastic bottles that won’t be used in a year’s time. S’well donates a portion of each sale back to WaterAid.

S’well has beautiful, lacquered mom-inspired prints for Mother’s Day, and their rainbow of colors and prints will dazzle your eyes!

Relax with soothing (or refreshing!) Mighty Leaf teas!Mighty Leaf Mothers Day Gift Ideas

I’ve raved about the crisp, clean taste of Mighty Leaf teas before. They truly are a favorite tea of mine, especially for icing down as a cool beverage in spring and summer.

What better to put into your S’well bottle than a brew (hot or cold!) of Mighty Leaf teas!?
