Wood Gifts that Help Plant Trees
I think that there is nothing better than giving or receiving a beautiful and useful gift. Then there are those gifts that give back in some way that are extra special. I usually think of wood as something for furniture, houses, or for burning but these beautiful wood gifts from Joycoast changed my mind and inspired me to wear a bit more wood in my everyday life.

Made for Comfort
When I first got this beautiful watch and this pair of sunglasses, I was surprised at how light they were. They weigh practically nothing at all. I think of wood as heavy, but Joycoast has used this natural, renewable resource to make supremely comfortable accessories. In fact, they are about 40% lighter than typical sunglasses and watches. They’re certainly lighter than my regular eyewear. Who would’ve thought that wood gifts were lightweight, beautiful, and comfortable?
Stylish Wood Gifts
Both my watch and sunglasses would not be out of place at any gathering, despite their uniqueness. Joycoast uses clean styling to fit in anywhere, but they are stylish enough to have people asking me, “where did you get those?” Everyone who as asked has been surprised about their natural origins but loves the look and feel of them. And nothing completes an outfit quite like a nice pair of sunglasses and a stylish watch.
Customization to Make it Special
Because all of their products are wood, they can be easily laser engraved with custom messages. The back of my wood frame watch can hold about 40 characters of text. This is a great way to make any gift extra special to the receiver.
The Highest Quality
My sunglasses are made from natural wood and sport polarized UV-400 lenses. This Winnie style is technically “rimless” but there are so many different styles to choose from. All shapes and sizes to fit any face shape. All of Joycoast’s products are made in America with American resources and handcrafted to perfection. My watch even features a real marble face! Having grown up near Marble, CO, I hold a special affinity towards the stone. My watch has a real-leather strap with is soft, comfortable, and fits wonderfully. It features Japanese quartz movement for accurate timekeeping and comes in a beautiful American Walnut box. Both the sunglasses and watch are water-resistant, have a 12-month manufacturer warranty, and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
Gifts Giving Back to Nature
My favorite thing about these products, aside from how great they look on me, is that every individual product sold plants 10 trees! Joycoast maintains a negative carbon footprint by planting 10 trees for every product sold, so my sunglasses and watch helped to plant 20 trees! Their goal is to reach one million trees planted and every beautiful accessory helps them reach that goal. Using wood contributes fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and all of their wood comes from responsibly managed FSC-Certified Forests.
Something for Everyone
At Joycoast you can find not only sunglasses and watches, but blue-light blocking glasses, and rings. There styles for both men and women. And there are so many different styles, there is literally something for everyone. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love these wood gifts. I’m sure just about anyone else would be too!
