Gift Guide: Father's Day

Father's DayAnna with her Dad, Bruce, 1998 

Last year for Father's Day I gave my Dad salad dressing (if you haven't tried Crane's Crest, you should!), but this year I want to up my gift giving game a bit. If your dad is anything like mine, he doesn't quite fit into the fishing, hunting, golfing club, so finding something he'll love can be a bit tricky. Use this guide to help you find some gifts that will help you hit a home run (no pun intended). 

Collar Stays. Gone are the days of plastic collar stays that come with a shirt! Say hello to these gorgeous, monogrammed options that your dad will wear time after time. Available in sterling silver or 14k gold, these will land you as your dad's favorite child (at least for a little while!).

Tie Bar. Up his dress up game with this chic sterling silver tie bar. It will put the finishing touch on any outfit and will have his friends asking where they can get one. It can be engraved (or monogrammed!), so be sure you get your order in early to ensure timely delivery!

Money Clip. There is something so understated, old school and cool about a money clip. If your dad doesn't already have one, you should definitely get him one to up his game.

Sterling Sliver Book Mark. I love an elegant bookmark. It just makes reading that much more fun when you have something like this marking your page. For your Dad, pair this bookmark with one of your favorite books or a book you think he should read. Send the book to the APJ offices and I will ship the book and the bookmark to your dad free of charge.

A Great Watch. Paul Newman's Rolex Daytona went to auction in October of 2017 after "disappearing" for over fifty years. In actuality, he gave said watch to his daughter's then college boyfriend (now husband), and he wore it until it went to auction. I love the idea of my Dad giving my future husband a classic, wearable, collectible, and what better way to ensure that happening than by giving him a great watch. 

APJ can find pretty much any watch you might want to give your dad (or spouse, partner, yourself), so reach out!
