Germany's Father's Day falls on Ascension Day. So a few weeks ago I received a phone call from my dear dad who said: "Hello, today is Father's Day!" Much mumbling on my end of the phone that eventually ended in: "Happy Father's Day." So in order for you not to find yourself in a similar situation, here are some unique gifts for the fathers in your family:
How about a set of coasters depicting Rockaway's architectural landmarks from Bungaloe?
I've been eyeing these cufflinks for months now. Coney Island's Parachute Jump affixed to nickels made by Wabisabi Brooklyn. My husband's aunt actually jumped off that thing in her heyday.
For the athlete in your family, a tissue cozy from muppetloon. What, you don't already own one! Where do you keep your tissues? Wrapped in some plastic?
And finally a special something for the Lewis Black fan - found at E.Binard.
Also, don't forget to check out Karen's Monsters for t-shirts and cute monsters, Jes Switaj for ties, Ikyoto for more cool t-shirts, and yummy soaps from Nordea's Soaperie and Dirty Loves Clean.
By the way, Sonora Smart Dodd was the first to solicit support for a day honoring fathers in 1910.
