Happy Tuesday, y'all! To continue on with our gift guide series, today we're talking all about gifts for dads. The Father of the Bride and Father of the Groom are two very important men on the wedding day — so why not choose a gift that truly celebrates your love and gratitude for your pops? We've rounded up some sentimental and practical items that would make perfect gifts for fathers – whether on the wedding day or for Christmas! Hope you enjoy!
Engraved Watch from ThingsRemembered
There's nothing quite like a classic wristwatch to show the world that your dad's a man of distinction. This sophisticated watch has a “skeleton” dial which shows the inner workings of the watch. You can also share the inner workings of your heart by engraving a touching message on the back of the watch. A personal and meaningful touch for your dear old dad!! The watch comes with a wooden presentation box that can also be engraved. This watch is unique in that it has a skeleton movement — the motion of your body keeps the clock movement running. If the watch is not being worn every 24 hours then it will need wound by hand to continue the clock movement. Luckily – the watch looks great dressed up or down, so there's no reason for him not to wear it every day!
BetterBow by Horace Hugh
Forget boring old cufflinks. I was recently introduced to this genius men's fashion product that I predict will be the next BIG gift trend for Men in weddings!! The Better Bow is designed with a magnetic clasp that you can attach different 100% silk bow tie “tails” to create the perfect dapper look for any event. The magnetic clasp allows you to tie the bow tie in a way that you're able to look at what you're doing — their suggestion is around your thigh, and then once you've arranged the perfect bow, you can unclasp it and refasten the bow around your (or your guy's) neck! The easiest bow tie ever!! Watch this video that shows how much easier The Better Bow makes it to tie a bowtie!
You can get a basic Better Bow with silvertone clasp featuring the Horace Huge logo for $65, or for an extra special keepsake you can purchase a Better Bow with a custom monogrammed Sterling Silver clasp for $165. A great gift idea for the Father of the Bride!
