The month of June brings with it many occasions: The end of school, the start of summer, and Father’s Day. Father’s Day can sometimes be one of the toughest occasions to buy a gift. Most moms appreciate the smallest of gifts on Mother’s Day, but fewer dads are impressed by a flower bouquet than mothers. But a universal gift for Father’s Day (or any day) is jewelry. Taking the effort to find something special for dad shows that you care. Nice jewelry is something that any age of parent can wear proudly, especially if it fits his personality and sense of style.
For those seeking jewelry shopping ideas for Father’s Day, consider the following functional and fun selections for every interest and formality level.
- Cufflinks. Cufflinks look classy and have the added bonus of keeping sleeve length looking even and your cuffs easier to button instead of having to manipulate those tricky smaller buttons that require significant amounts of dexterity. A classic style of cufflink is made of silver, silver with 18K gold. Many include stones in the middle like black onyx or blue topaz. If you want something that will blend in better, diamonds can be the gem of choice.
- Money clip. A money clip is a great tool for keeping cash in one place. It’s easy to grab the clip when it’s time to pay for something and you may need to use your wallet for other things. You can keep other items such as credit cards or ID in the clip, something that can be handy on occasions where you don’t need to bring your wallet and everything in it along, or have the bulge of your wallet be seen. Money clips can be found in a variety of attractive design styles, including something simple clips and made of silver, or others with attractive lines.
- Watch. Telling time is good, but your phone or the wall clock can do that. But a sharp-looking watch can also show that your dad is a lover of fine things. It is also an item that people can wear in any condition or any wardrobe choice.
- Custom Ring. You can’t beat a custom-designed ring for your dad. Even a simple design and gemstone choice of his birthstone or even references to special memories, such as school, a fraternity, sports teams or military service will go a long way. Dad will be impressed with his unique custom design.
