Fathers and father figures in our lives are special people and come in variety of personalities! Someone who has made us what we are today deserves a celebration to recognize the hard work; something special that defines and complements the unique persona!
I can’t think of Father’s Day without thinking of my dad. He was a graceful, fashionable man of his time – tailor-fitted suits, cigars, cufflinks kinda guy with a typical old school swag, who when and if needed could roll up his sleeves to fix a leaky faucet, on the spot, without any hesitation! If he was still in this world, he would have owned any possible tech gadget and brought the old-time touch to these new age necessities! Luckily, I can say the same about my husband, who can mix and match today’s trends with classic touches (and fix leaky faucets!!). Coincidentally many on our team felt likewise about men in their lives! While contemplating the post, we unanimously declared no matter what “type” the dad is, Father’s Day gift ideas cannot not have the retro feel in them! While for Mother’s Day we look for modern and fashion forward things for the most part, for our dads, we tend to bring past even for their modern possessions and inclinations.
So here it is – a guide that might have a flavor of erstwhile charm, analogous to retro masculinity, but will for sure make many kinds of dads happy!
