Top 12 Memorable and Unique Gift Ideas this Fathers Day
Unique gifting traditions we believe started back as early as humanity began as a way of helping to maintain healthy relationships and building trust between groups of people.
Choosing a unique Father’s Day gift is important and in years gone by gifting was dictated by your social status but strangely buying an expensive gift was a sign you were trying too hard!
Father’s Day origins began is the USA as a memorial to honour men who had died in a mining accident in Washington State and while that was originally a July date, this has evolved and is now traditionally the 3rd Sunday in June. During the great depression many retailers picked this up as a way of promoting their goods and sales of hats, socks, pipes, sporting good and cards. Following World War Two, Father’s Day again became a way of honouring those sadly lost during the war years.
It is no secret that men are notoriously difficult to buy for so this year why not treat the special gentleman in your life to something a little different? Fathers Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate dads, father figures, grandads, husbands and treat them to a unique gift experience in place of those predictable socks, tie, or wallet!
