Your wedding day is going to be a rough one for dad. First, everyone is staring at him as he tries not to lose it walking his little girl down the aisle. Then everyone stares at him even more intensely as he actually does lose it while he dances with his daughter to the tune of “Daddy’s Little Girl.” It’s a lot for a guy to take.
So a nice thank you gift for dad wouldn’t go amiss on the Big Day. And this doesn’t just mean something from daughter-to-dad. Remember, there are two dads at the wedding, and a token of thanks to your new father-in-law is a gesture that’s sure to prompt a smile.
Every dad becomes a big softy on their kids’ wedding day. And a gift that will remind him of his guy’s guy status will help him.
SAYING THANK YOU
Since dads – even the big tough guy types – tend to get a little weepy on wedding days, it’s good to find gifts that can help remind the big lug of his status as a man’s man. But you also want to give him something that will remind him of your special day. And at Things Remembered we have a ton of great gift options that are both manly and sentimental.
Impossible, you say? Read on.
FOR BEER LOVERS
Barware is a can’t-miss gift for dads. It appeals to a dad’s love for functional tools and enjoying a few drinks with friends. A set of our hefty, personalized British Pint Glasses will compliment any bar nicely. Shaped in the classic pub style, they actually hold a hearty 20 ounces of your favorite beverage. These can be engraved with a message or a saying just for dad. Don’t worry: there’s no message sappy or sentimental enough to keep dad from hoisting these glasses with his buddies.
FOR DADS WHO LOVE GOOD WHISKEY
If your dad’s more of a whiskey man, he’ll be thrilled with the Things Remembered hand-blown decanter. This big, bold container can take pride of place at dad’s bar, and can be emblazoned with a monogram or family name. Dad will be proud to give this gift a prominent place at his bar – and not just because he’s filled it with his favorite spirit.
A CELEBRATORY CIGAR
For dads who enjoy a good smoke, our large Reclaimed Wood Cigar Humidor can take any bar area to the next level. Finished in subtle, light-back matte, this box has a black velvet lining and a removable tray that can hold up to five smokes in the ideal conditions, along with space for lighters and other cigar tools. You can personalize this box to dad with a message on front or on the lid.
TIMELESS AND TRADITIONAL
If you’re looking for a more traditional gift, you can’t beat our Mother of Pearl Photo Pocket Watch. This silver watch has many customizable areas for engraving a message. And by adding photo of yourself as a little girl, you create a gift that dad is guaranteed to carry with him everywhere – and not just because it keeps great time.
DON’T FORGET THE FATHER-IN-LAW
For father-in-laws to be, it’s better to choose something practical rather than overly sentimental. Why not thank him with a gift that will remind him of the day every day – because he’ll always have it with him. The Things Remembered Sterling Silver Money Clip is wide and sturdy, and keeps loose bills all in one place. Or choose our Leather Card Holder, a convenient leather case that’s perfect for carrying business cards, credit cards, or even cash, and can be personalized with a monogram or a name.
Dad deserves more than just a dance for his role in your Big Day. Be sure to recognize him with great gifts like these from Things Remembered.
