Friends, friends, friends! I hope that everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving holiday and was able to eat some amazing food, spend lots of quality time with the family, and of course score some Black Friday deals over the past few days! The holidays are a magical time of year, and now that it is socially acceptable to start playing Christmas music and go holiday shopping I wanted to bring you all a holiday gifting guide for the guys in your life (or if you just want to treat yourself)! My plan is to cover some of my favorite brand discoveries that have the best gifts you can get (and some of the most unique) for the holidays! And we are starting with current obsession, which is watches! The brand I’m featuring today is Jack Mason and I think you all will love them as much as I do! Before we get to the killer watches that they design, I want to tell you all a little bit more about the brand. Overall, they are deeply rooted in Americana and have such a unique personality to them that incorporates their love for dogs (believe it or not)!
I have two kinds of watches that I want to share with you all (and they are legit so cool)! First, is part of the collegiate collection that Jack Mason offers! As we all know, I am a proud Tar Heel and when I found out that they had watches (and also leather goods) that were UNC branded I low key freaked out! For my fellow Tar Heels, I linked up to where you can find other UNC pieces (which totally blow away the ones at the new Student Stores). But for those of you that went to other universities, not to worry! Follow this link and find the large list of schools that they offer products for! These gifts are perfect for recent grads, students still in school, and people who just honestly love their university! I’ve been wearing this watch non-stop since I got it and absolutely love the quality and Tar Heel touches, peep the Carolina Blue and the image of Ramses (our mascot) on the face of the watch!
However, if you’re looking for something that isn’t university branded and is more of a classic watch Jack Mason has several other lines of watches for whatever you might need! The second watch that I’m featuring is from their aviation collection. They have a ton of superb choices, however, I opted for this really unique and stand-out rose gold watch. I didn’t have a rose gold watch before, mainly because I could never find one that I was really sold on and loved. BUT this one took me immediately! The gray face and burgundy dial really set this watch apart from others that I’ve seen and I was such a huge fan when I saw it!
Rose gold has been huge in women’s fashion for the past few seasons and it’s been becoming more and more popular for men these days. I completely get that it can be really hard to wear rose gold as a guy (I’m generally more of a silver person myself when it comes to watches) but rose gold is a great piece to get if you’re looking to diversify your look. This one specifically is great because the gray face makes it a lot more versatile and you can dress it up or down, as well as pair it with several different colors in your outfits. Not to mention, that the burgundy dials are perfect for the fall and winter since that is always a popular color during this time of year.
So, in review. I’m loving these two watches from Jack Mason and I think you all will too! Watches really make the ideal gift for guys this holiday season and can be a real showstopper when it comes to present time. In general, watches are a great way to up the accessories game and are something that a guy can wear every single day, so making the investment for a timepiece that you really like is well worth if you think of the ROI (Return on Investment, excuse my nerdy business self). So definitely check out Jack Mason and don’t forget that they also offer wallets!
Also, don’t forget to be on the lookout for several more of my holiday gift guide posts! I’ll be featuring some really cool brands from shoes, to ties, to more accessories for the season that can’t be beat! Trust me y’all I’ll help to make gifting this season as painless as possible, just come along on the ride with me!
