Father’s Day in the USA falls on the third Sunday of June, much to the delight of Dads, who can finally enjoy a guilt-free day of pampering, praise and presents. The origins of this holiday can be traced back to 1909 in Spokane, Washington where Ms. Saonora Dodd felt compelled to honor her single dad who raised her along with five siblings.
Although Sanora’s initial efforts to promote the celebration fell on deaf ears, she returned to Spokane in the 1930s to raise awareness at a national level. Enlisting the support of local trade groups, the concept of Father’s Day gained traction, with children often gifting their dads with tobacco pipes, ties and other hand-crafted gifts.
It wasn’t until 1972 that president Richard Nixon established Father’s Day as a permanent national holiday in America. Now one of the most recognizable annual events in many parts of the world, sons and daughters the world over continue to seek out special gifts for dads as a token of appreciation.
Amidst the cacophony of commercialization, it is often the lovingly created hand-made gifts that are treasured most. Whether it was the family portrait (pet inclusive) drawn entirely in crayon or the card with a heart fashioned from penne pasta, unique gifts live long in the memory.
Here at Boru Jewelry, we couldn’t agree more. That’s why we have compiled a list of handcrafted Father’s Day Jewelry Gifts below that are destined to delight. Men’s jewelry, particularly pieces with heartfelt engraving, have become one of the most popular personalized gift ideas; something Sanora Dodd may have had trouble believing over a century ago.
