This time, I’m dedicating a post to all fathers, husbands, brothers, dads-to-be, and granddads. Throughout this post, I’ll give you some gift ideas for the Father’s day, these contain affiliate links that help support this blog. You can also see the top 10 gift ideas for Father’s day here.
Father’s Day: Origin
There are two stories about the origin of the day.
First story: Sonora Smart Dodd wanted to honour her father, who brought up six children himself as his wife died in childbirth. After listening to a Mother’s Day sermon in 1910, Sonora began a campaign to have an official day dedicated to fathers.
Second story: This one tells about an orphan woman named Grace Golden Glayton from West Virginia. She was convincing her local Methodist ministers for a church service to honour fathers in 1908. The inspiration came from the Monongah mining disaster in 1907 that killed 362 local men, leaving 250 women without husbands and more than 1000 children as orphans.
Gift suggestion: Exploding Kittens Card Game. The idea is that you actually sit down and spend some time together playing the game!
When is Father’s Day?
Internationally it is celebrated on different days. In many countries the Father’s day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June: the US, Canada, the UK, France, India, South Africa, Ukraine and many more mark this day in their calendars.
Some countries celebrate the first Sunday in June (Switzerland, Lithuania), or the second Sunday in June (Austria and Belgium). It goes all throughout the year.
Here’s a lovely infographic for you to save and remember: Father’s day calendar.
Another Father’s day special gift idea: As dads and TVs are good friends, the Amazon Fire TV stick to stream media sounds like a good choice.
Or you can go for something simple, like this funny Dad’s Book Of Jobs notebook.
Happy Father’s day!
