The first year of being a parent might be rough, but it's memorable and speckled with sweet memories of all the firsts — first steps, first words, first teeth… A first Father's Day is a special one, whether your little one was born a week ago or eleven months ago. Make another adorable memory by throwing a party for a new father, and don't forget a gift that will help him remember that day for years to come! A new watch, a pair of cufflinks, or a gold bracelet will last for years to come and remind him how loved he is every time he puts it on.
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.
