The Best Gift for Your Guy this Holiday Season

The struggle is real.  I never know what to get my husband for Christmas.  I mean, what do you get for a guy who has it all?!  And then after the holidays pass, I almost instantly see gifts I should have gotten him. But this year is going to be different, because I realized that all I had to do is give him a gift that I would like to get myself!  No, I’m not talking makeup or a Gucci bag, but a JORD wood watch. I have two, and I adore them to pieces. What guy wouldn’t also like to have a cool wood watch??  That is the best gift for your guy this holiday season! read more


How to Start Your Mornings the Right Way
