Father's Day 2016
Father's Day is observed in the United States every third Sunday in June. It's observance is a day when we recognize the fathers, grandfathers and father figures who have influence in our lives. It is celebrated through the giving of cards, gifts, dining out and time spent together.
Though the history of Father's Day is unclear, before it was official, there were several events and ceremonies that celebrated fathers. The first statewide Father's Day was proclaimed in the state of Washington on July 19, 1910. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed it a nationwide holiday in 1972, though it is not a federal holiday. This year we celebrate Father's Day on June 19, 2016.
There has also been a lot of controversy over the national holiday, as a retail gimmick to sell more products.
So the biggest question is what to get dad? We can usually wow mom with a simple gift of flowers, chocolate or jewelry, but as history shows, men aren't as easily wowed by the sentimental thoughts of roses or candy. The typical socks and neck tie went out the window in the 90s. While technology or gadgets may impress dad, some guys (perhaps grandpa) just aren't that technically savvy.
Why not impress dad by burnishing or embossing his name in a leather wallet or money clip. Engraved Gunmetal Cufflinks show dad that you didn't wait until the last minute to dash out to the mall to grab a gift, as if he were an afterthought, "Oh yeah, tomorrow is Father's Day!" But if dad is not a cufflink-wearing type of guy, we have many items for the sports enthusiast. Our NFL Travel Tumbler featuring your choice of NFL team and your engraving is one of our top selling items. If neither of these work for you, let dad relax and throwback on Father's Day with our Craft Beer Printed Growler Set with matching pint glasses. Choose your design and one of our four ink colors for a personalized creative twist.
