While it is true that Mother's Day garners a lot more national attention than Father's Day, make this year just as important to celebrate Dad and all he's done for the family. Dad deserves to be celebrated and thanked for all the unseen things he does — and his corny jokes! Giving him a special piece he can wear or use daily to remember just how special he really is to his loved ones will make his day. Classics like watches, money clips, or cufflinks are perfect for a timeless style, or choose a necklace, bracelet, or ring for a more fashion-forward father.
An iconic piece of jewelry in a man's wardrobe is a chain link bracelet or necklace. These thicker, simple pieces are commonly made from gold, platinum, or stainless steel, and are sometimes adorned with gemstones. There are many chain link styles to choose from this Father's Day to find the best piece for Dad. If you're looking for a more casual style, consider a mixed-media bracelet that combines leather and metal for a laid-back, everyday style. For professional wear, mixed metals or diamond-studded jewelry is a winner every time.
Don't Forget Grandpa!
Once your son has a child, Father's Day falls by the wayside for the older generation, and let's face it, Grandparent's Day (the Sunday after Labor Day) doesn't attract a whole lot of attention. Celebrating several generations of fathers on Father's Day will make all of the fathers in your family feel special, celebrated, and remembered. Gift Grandpa something he can pass down as an heirloom, whether it's an engraved money clip, a gold tie bar for his granddaughter's wedding next month, or a ring with the family crest. Honor him in a special way with a momento as fine as him!
For Coach Dad
Getting Dad what he "needs" can be tough — so this year, go above and beyond and get him something he doesn't know he needs! Are the kids starting sports soon and need Dad to time how fast they can run a quarter-mile or swim a hundred yards? Watches with built-in precision stopwatches will become his best friend through all those sporting years and bring back memories of his own. He can be the "cool dad" and coach the team to victory without holding a nerdy plastic orange stopwatch! Investing in a watch with built-in stopwatch from your local fine jewelry store will ensure Dad can keep cheering on the kids year after year.
