The Gift of Time for my Grad (plus free wrapping paper!)


When I graduated from high school, my grandma gifted me a watch. It was a beautiful watch and I always got the most compliments when I wore it. I always felt proud to say, “My grandma gave it to me.” Well, it’s years later and I still think watches make the BEST graduation gifts. So today I’m sharing with you a unique watch plus free wrapping paper to beautifully gift it! There’s also a giveaway, so keep reading to the end!

Guess who is graduating now? My constant support and biggest fan, my husband! He is completing his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. He has been going to school for 7-8 years! He supported me as a first year teacher as he was in an intense part of his schooling. Somehow he still had the time to help me grade and calm my anxious teacher heart. It hasn’t all been easy for me either though. I had to be the “patient” many times so he could practice his doctor techniques. As a very ticklish person, this was basically torture. So it’s safe to say, we are both very excited for his schooling to come to an end.

His graduation is on Sunday which also happens to be Mother’s Day (I don’t know who planned that, but they should probably be fired). As much as I don’t want to combine the two on one day, I have a gift idea that can work for both a graduation gift and a unique Mother’s Day gift. ALSO, I have a free wrapping paper download below that will work for either!

Because this Mother’s Day/Graduation is a big day for us over here, I got really excited when JORD watches sent me this cool watch to try out. I mean seriously, their watches are gorgeous! They would work as a Mother’s Day gift as well as the perfect graduation gift. You can even get an engraved watch for an extra personal touch.

I designed this free wrapping paper to be able to work with both. CELEBRATING YOU! Really, it can work for any occasion. I just printed it on regular paper. My beautiful watch box needed two sheets of paper so I just used gold washi tape to put them together.

And one more exciting part about all of this!!! JORD watches is having a giveaway. One winner will receive a $100 gift code to their site. Everyone who enters will receive a $25 gift code just for entering! The giveaway ends at 11:59 CST 05/28/17.

Update (5-17-17): We just spent the weekend at my husband’s graduation and it was amazing! It was a little cold and windy, but it only rained for part of the time. I was able to take a few good pictures with my unique watch and my graduate.
