Personalize your Father’s Day Gift this year with Engraved Jewelry

Father’s Day is right around the corner.  How will you show your dad this year that he is – and always will be – your personal hero?  Sure, Dad can always use another tie or golf accessory or “World’s Greatest Dad” mug, but if you want to give him a gift that really shows that you’ve put some thought into it, engraved jewelry is the perfect way to personalize your Father’s Day gift and show Dad just how much you love and appreciate him.


To be honest, moms are easier to shop for.  Mom is always delighted with new jewelry for Mother’s Day, or any occasion.  But we tend to forget that dads love (and deserve) nice jewelry, too, and there are plenty of Father’s Day gift options in this category to suite Dad’s personal taste and lifestyle, from the simple, casual, outdoor man to the executive, and everything in between.  So your search for that perfect Father’s Day jewelry gift should start with these “lifestyle” factors in mind, and then you can begin to personalize your gift from there.

Choosing the particular piece of jewelry, such as a watch or men’s bracelet is the first step, keeping in mind that virtually any jewelry can be personalized with engraving, provided it has enough surface to do so.  If you’re dad’s not really a jewelry guy, you can still personalize his Father’s Day gift this year with custom engraving on a variety of other items, as well.  Think plaques or mock awards, desk accessories like executive pen sets, or even certain types of fishing gear.  Get creative, and you’ll soon find you’ve come up with a truly one-of-a-kind Father’s Day gift that shows Dad he’s one-in-a-million.

Whether you choose to go with a special sentiment or add some humor with a funny saying or an “inside joke”, engraving gives you the opportunity to tell Dad just how you feel in a gift that will remind him each and every time looks upon it.  Custom engraving does require a little lead time, but there’s still plenty of time to personalize that perfect gift for Dad this Father’s Day if you get the process started now.  Your local jeweler can help you to find just the item you’re looking for to suit your dad’s taste and style, and do the engraving for you on site, quite affordably.

Make this the year you really “wow” him with a personalized Father’s Day Gift from the heart.

Father’s Day Ideas

While early incarnations of Mother’s Day began popping up in the 1860s, it took longer for a special day for fathers to catch on. Maybe because men are notoriously difficult to shop for! President Woodrow Wilson signed Mother’s Day into law in 1914, but it took another fifty-plus years before President Lyndon Johnson formalized Father’s Day in 1966. In 1972, President Richard Nixon made the holiday permanent.


It’s not that folks didn’t want to give Dad his due before then. Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington, was an early proponent of Father’s Day. Dodd thought if mothers got Mother’s Day, it was only fair for fathers to have a day in their honor. She started a movement amongst area churches. Spokane celebrated its first Father’s Day in 1910. Dodd selected June as the proper month because her own father was a June baby.


The idea spread through the nation in stops and starts. President Wilson approved of the Father’s Day idea, but never made it official. Calvin Coolidge made a point of encouraging closer relationships between fathers and their children. During the ‘20s and ‘30s, some people wanted to celebrate neither Mother’s nor Father’s Day, but combine them into a single holiday, Parents’ Day.


So why did it take so long for Father’s Day to catch up to Mother’s Day? Perhaps it has something to do with men feeling they have to keep up their tough, protective image and not give in to sentimentality. But everybody likes to be appreciated, including the fathers in your life, whether they’ll admit it or not. Even if Dad say, “Really, I don’t want anything for Father’s Day,” he might secretly hope you’ll do something a little special.


Here are a few ideas for your father or father figures:


Spend time together. Buy two tickets for an event Dad likes, whether it’s a ballgame or an opera


Cook his favorite dinner or bake a cake


For a lasting gift, choose a bracelet from Amidon. The lightweight titanium bracelets are hypoallergenic, stand up to surf and sun, and look cool like steel. Or if Dad’s a black tie kind of guy, go with the stacked black and steel cufflinks.


Most of all, tell Dad you appreciate him. Ponder these quotes by wise thinkers.


“It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father.”
-Pope John XXIII


“A father is someone who carries pictures in his wallet where his money used to be.”
