Father’s Day is right around the corner this coming Sunday (June 17th), run out of gift ideas from planning Mother’s Day last month? We’ve got ideas for you.
In May 1909, Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington, sat in church listening to a Mother’s Day sermon. She decided she wanted to designate a day for her dad, William Jackson Smart. Dodd’s mother had died in childbirth, and Dodd’s father, a Civil War veteran, had taken the responsibility of singlehandedly raising the newborn and his other five children. After a series of conundrums to petition for an official Father’s Day holiday, President Lyndon Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers in 1966, but it wasn’t until 1972 that President Richard Nixon signed the public law that made it a permanent holiday.
In order to recognize and appreciate the many different father figures in our lives, here are 5 gift recommendations for Father’s Day.
Utilities are always a safe bet for gifts because you’ll be sure that dad will need a good shave every morning and need a high-quality shaver. Braun is an innovative maker of home and personal care products, based in Germany; and one of its most popular line of products is the personal electric shaver.
Another trusty utility as a gift that never goes wrong. Gucci’s leatherworks are known for their high-quality material and timeless designs. Splurge a little to get your dad a stylish wallet like no other.
Designing & producing the highest quality glasses and decanters for the enjoyment of wine and spirits since 1756, Riedel wine glasses are the ultimate gift for Father’s Day. Glasses are not the most common Father’s Day gift but they certainly do pack in a good use for wine tasting and conversations over a drink.
Have larger budgets? Then we would recommend a smartwatch to put fashion on the go in an everyday accessory. Watches not only act as a useful gift but also make a bold statement with various designs ranging from fitness smartwatches to fashionable Fossil smartwatches.
Don’t forget to include an extra card with your gift. A gift from you means a lot to your father but it would mean even more for you guys to just sit down, connect and have a meal together. Not all appreciation and love ought to be expressed through the most expensive gifts or lengthy Instagram captions.
Happy Early Father’s Day!
