Father’s Day isn’t a modern tradition like some believe. Although there is no proof behind this story, it’s said that the first Father’s Day card was carved out of clay by a young child 4,000 years ago. Fast forward a couple thousand years to 1909, when Sonora Smart Dodd was listening to a Mother’s Day sermon when she thought of her father, a single parent raising 6 children, and how fathers should be shown the same gratitude and love. In 1910, the first Father’s Day was celebrated, by 1916 President Woodrow Wilson approved the observing of Father’s Day, and in 1972 Father’s Day was officially signed in to law.
So a simple question is asked, does Dad really need another tie this year? Even though Father’s Day is a deep rooted tradition, Hamilton Jeweler’s is recommending that everyone changes the old ways of gift giving and really spoil dad on June 16th! Celebrate dad and all that he’s done over the years with some tips from Hamilton Jewelers.
If a father is a total movie buff, take a trip to see a movie. Yes, actually going to the movies seems like a dated thing of the past, but once there, everyone will remember what was so great about going in the first place; the smell of buttered popcorn, claiming the seats all the way in the back or front, and watching the movie trailers. He will love the fact that his children took time out of their day to do something he loves.
Since its baseball season, the easy choice would be taking dad to a baseball game, which is fun, but think outside the box. If he’s a golfer, nix the game and head to the links. Even if talents aren’t as good as Tiger Woods, it’ll be a fun day spent with dad. He’s taught people so much in life; let him teach how to swing a club!
If dad shows an interest in cooking, Sur La Table has amazing cooking classes at most of their locations. They actually have a Father’s Day cooking class where anyone can make pizza, sliders, and s’mores sundaes. Bonding is always done best over food so no better way to bond than taking a cooking class! It won’t be a disappointment, it’s a really fun time and it’ll show dad his children are paying attention to his hobbies and interests.
Of course, it’s always nice to open up a present that shows someone’s appreciation. A great way to commemorate dad’s big day is with a gift from Hamilton. From classic timepieces to cufflinks, to money clips and iPad stands, they have something for every dad and every style to make this year memorable. Break the rules of traditional gift giving and let Dad have the spotlight this year.
