Create a Personalized Gift for Your Father

This Father’s Day I suggest you do something that’s different from all other years; something that’s unique and memorable. Instead of simply buying a generic present to give your father, think about actually creating a gift for your dad. But, how can you create a gift?

In my opinion, personalizing or engraving existing gifts, such as a picture frame or clock, gives you the best of both worlds. You have a nice, well-made present to which your dad’s name, initials, the date and pretty much anything else can be added. By marking a present and holiday in time via engraving, a gift can be kept for years and memories will always be there.

Also, the simple action of making an extra effort to personalize or engrave a Father’s Day gift means a lot and your father will appreciate it.

Lastly, have fun! That’s all that matters.


Top 5 Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day gift shopping can be a nightmare with thousands upon thousands of products to choose from. Sometimes deciding on a gift can be bewildering and the process takes hours of your time. To help everyone with Father’s Day gift ideas I have decided to share my 5 favorite gifts for Father’s Day.

1) Silver Pocket Watch w/ Chain — Being punctual is quite important, which makes this classy pocket watch an ideal gift for businessmen and other dads that need to be places on time. Yes, cell phones and the clock in your car tell time, but not in a sophisticated, classy way. To make things even better, the pocket watch can be engraved with your father’s initials making for a memorable gift that he will keep for years.

2) Black Leather Watch Case — For the father that has multiple watches this black leather watch case is an excellent gift. I myself have two watches but no place to officially put them. Usually I put them on my nightstand or in my drawer, though a watch case like this would be awesome.

3) Espresso All-In-One Desktop Memo Set — With technology taking over the world it’s something difficult to feel cozy and at home in one’s office. This desk set  is a classy upgrade to any workstation and is something your father will love.

4) CEO globe bookends — These bookends are an excellent addition to any collection. They’re artistic and can be used in an office and are also perfect for a cigar room or billiards room.

5) Dad’s Poker Night Set— My dad absolutely loved to play poker and for this reason I had to put a poker set on my list of top 5 Father’s Day gifts. This poker set comes with everything needed for a night of competition.

Have a wonderful Father’s Day!


Father’s Day Gifts for Dads in the Armed Forces

For families that have loved ones serving in the military overseas, holidays like Father’s Day can be quite difficult. And, since the United States has over 100,000 troops stationed around the world, this Father’s Day will be felt by many Americans. Fortunately, there are ways to connect with military dads for Father’s Day which I have decided to share in this article.

To show your dad (or your kid’s father) how much you care, my suggestion is to send them a thoughtful, unique engraved gift that they can keep with them at all times. This includes pocket clocks, engraved pens, or personalized silver cuff links for formal events. These are all excellent presents that can be sent to your dad overseas. Keep in mind they are not big, lavish presents but they are thoughtful and useful.

Also, you may consider sending a homemade card, which is always a big hit. Creating a card and writing a nice note saying Happy Father’s Day!, then sending it across the world, is in itself a wonderful gift.

I hope this article has been helpful and have a wonderful Father’s Day!


Father’s Day Gift Ideas for a Businessman

If your father is a businessman like many out there, the odds are he’s quite busy, travels often and spends a lot of time away from home. Buying a Father’s Day gift for a businessman can sometimes be tough, but there are ways to make the holiday a success.

I, personally, don’t like the idea of getting perishable gifts on Father’s Day. Edible arrangements and other food-related gifts are tasty but businessmen have schedules that change quite often, so buying something that can go bad is not the greatest idea. If your father is flying home from a meeting but flights are delayed and he has a 24-hour layover, the edible gift will simply be sitting and waiting for him and it may go bad.

The best Father’s Day gifts for a businessman will be presents they can actually use and presents that will constantly remind them of you (their kid or family member). This includes personalized executive pens, leather desk sets, engraved office clocks and other business-related gifts. Buying your father a present that he can use and keep for many years is one of the best gifts you can buy.

Have a wonderful Father’s Day!


Unique Father’s Day Gifts – Selecting the Best Present

With Father’s Day quickly approaching, now is the time to start thinking about unique gifts that your father will love and keep for years. Being a father isn’t the easiest job, and fathers (just like mothers) need to be recognized for their hard work and love. This article will touch on a few of the gifts that I suggest for Father’s Day.

For one, think about cooking your dad a nice, memorable dinner. If he’s a meat and potatoes type of guy, cook him the best homemade dinner he has had in a long time. Fire up the BBQ/smoker and slow cook a few racks of ribs or grill a filet mignon. The important thing is to have a good time together. But, if you’re not a natural cook, be sure to research recipes online and possibly practice the dishes beforehand.

Secondly, as far as tangible gifts go, remember that the size and cost of a gift doesn’t determine its real value. The thought that goes into selecting a special gift is the most important aspect of buying a Father’s Day gift or any gift for that matter. Don’t simply purchase the first thing you see which may or may not fit your dad. Have a game plan, decide exactly what you want to buy your father, then research where you can buy such a gift. This is a plan for success.

To help you with gift ideas, the following are my favorite Father’s Day gifts: personalized pens, BBQ sets, classy bookends, leather watch cases, business card holders, office desk sets, poker players case, silver cufflinks, silk ties, chrome shaving sets and the list goes on. There are a variety of gifts that your father will love and it’s up to you to make the best decision based on your dad’s likes and dislikes.

Lastly, remember that shopping last minute can be a pain, so get a head start and research Father’s Day gifts today.
