June may be the time to get amped up for the summer with beachside swimming and barbecues. But, this month is also the time to celebrate the most important man in your life: your father! Father’s Day weekend 2019 is on June 16th, so it’s time to start looking if you’ve only got a greeting card. The following ideas will help get you prepared for the holiday.
What is the history behind Father’s Day?
Father’s Day may not seem to get the same attention Mother’s Day does, but there’s a reason for that. In fact, it wasn’t until 58 years after Mother’s Day was made official that the day became a nationwide holiday. It took so long because people thought that the holiday did not have the same appeal as Mother’s Day. Thus, there was plenty of delay in making it official! Whether you celebrate with brunch or a museum trip, the 50th anniversary of the special day is nearly here.
What are some good Father’s Day presents?
Father’s Day activities can be free, but that doesn’t mean a gift has to cost an arm and a leg. Choose from one of the following for the kind of presents that will make the day!
- Leather Wallet – It probably seems like your dad always needs a new wallet. However, a high-quality leather wallet that offers personalization will add a nice touch to an old favorite. This monogrammed item that features his initials might be among the gifts he’ll really remember.
- Matein Travel Laptop Backpack – If your dad is always flying off on business, the gift he can take with him is best! Luckily, this backpack has everything he needs to carry his laptop and its extras. It’s even considered the best carry-on backpack by the experts, so share it on a family app.
- Sony Noise-Cancelling Headphones – At $350, this isn’t one of the Father’s Day ideas that everyone’s going to invest in. But, if you’re looking for something really special for your music-loving dad, this could be it! These headphones are the best out there and will be the kind of gift your dad won’t buy himself.
