Thinking about getting the perfect holiday gift for someone who loves the great outdoors? Look no further than these beautifully handmade wood watches from Canada. These wood grain watches from the Canadian lifestyle brand Leafwood have been made from recycled and reclaimed wood and transformed into fantastic pieces of craftsmanship that can be enjoyed year-round.
For that special guy in your life, Leafwood offers the Juglan Nut Blue, which is handcrafted from 100% natural walnut. The Juglan Nut Blue boasts a number of stylish details – like a wooden watch face, watch band, and bezel. It’s clearly designed for the type of guy who wants to be stylish and eco-friendly at the same time. Not only is the watch made from 100% reclaimed or recycled wood, but also Leafwood promises to plant a new tree for every watch sold.
And, if you really want to make an impressive splash with your holiday gift, you might want to consider the Terra Juglan Gold nature watch. This is similar to the Juglan Nut Blue nature watch, in that it is made from 100% natural walnut. But it features a number of stylish extras – such as gold detail for some of the watch face features and an Italian leather strap instead of a wood wristband. If you’re headed out to a big holiday event this year, this is the watch you’d want to put on.
Starting in summer 2017, Leafwood also began to feature a new women’s line of watches known as The Virago. For that special woman in your life, you have two basic options in wood: either sandalwood or maplewood. The sandalwood version of The Virago comes in black and brown, while the maplewood version comes in a more neutral beige. Both are perfect as stylish fashion accessories that you can use to dress up or dress down an outfit as you choose.
Where these original grain watches really shine is in their rugged durability. It’s safe to say that, of all the Canadian watch brands, Leafwood is the only one that’s specifically focused on creating environmentally-friendly watches designed to be worn outdoors.
That’s not a coincidence – the two co-founders of the company are avid outdoor enthusiasts. When creating the concept for wood grain watches, they wanted a product that would remind them of the outdoors, and also stand up to the rigors of outdoor activities like mountain biking and hiking. So you could easily strap on one of these wood watches and wear it while meandering around the side of a mountain on your bike, or wear it while going on a contemplative solo hike in the woods.
Gone are the days when “environmentally friendly” meant that a fashion accessory couldn’t also be stylish and attractive. These wood watches from Leafwood are so beautifully made that you won’t hesitate to wear them everywhere you go – whether it’s a brisk walk in the woods or a trip to the corporate office for a big presentation. This holiday season, just imagine the look of wonderment on your loved one’s face when they open up a gift box to find a wood watch inside!
