The 2019 Complete Father’s Day Gift Guide is full of unique gifts that are thoughtful, cool, and out of the box are what Dads are really wanting this year!
Any Dad would love gifts that are handmade from the kiddos as those are one of a kind unique gifts that can never be forgotten. But what about gifts from their wives, significant others, or older children?
Our kids usually make something special for their Dad and I always look for something that I know he’s been wanting to get for himself or that I “think” he will like. We’ve been together for 30 years so I “think” I know him pretty well.
While putting together our Unique Gifts for Father’s Day Guide, we looked at a variety of items and finally settled on items that we felt fit the criteria we are looking for.
Before we get to the fabulous gift ideas, have you ever thought about the origins of Father’s Day. Here are some cool facts that I thought you might enjoy.
WHY DO WE CELEBRATE FATHER’S DAY?
There is research to suggest that the very first Father’s Day was recognized in Washington state on June 19, 1910 after Sonora Smart Dodd came up with the idea after listening to a sermon in church that talked about Mother’s Day.
Her father, Civil War veteran, William Jackson Smart, raised her and her five siblings by himself.
IS FATHER’S DAY ALWAYS ON THE SAME DAY IN JUNE EACH YEAR?
No, it is not, however, it’s always celebrated on the Third Sunday of June.
WHY IS FATHER’S DAY ALWAYS ON THE THIRD SUNDAY IN JUNE?
One of the reasons suggested is that President Lyndon B. Johnson, issued the first presidential proclamation honoring Fathers on the Third Sunday in June.

Tall Order Socks
Standing tall at 6’11” and 6’9” respectively, Mike and Dan were often referred to as the “Twin Towers” growing up. With towering heights come large feet, and they often had trouble finding quality, stylish dress socks that fit comfortably. As entrepreneurs, the brothers knew they needed to take the problem into their own hands (er, feet?) and create a solution. That’s why they began engineering socks for men sizes 9-20. Head over to their site to learn more about their company, their mission, and the story about how they came to be.
My husband started wearing JJ Suspenders almost a year ago. He absolutely loves them.
