Fatherís Day is one of the most important family holidays of the year, and everyone wants their fathers to know just how special they are by showering them with gifts. Unfortunately, when it comes to giving Fatherís Day gifts, many of us are clueless as to what dad, needs or already has. This dilemma has caused an overabundance of unneeded neckties and wallets being wrapped up as presents, but if you want to have a real impact, consider Father's Day beer gifts or Father's Day beer baskets from BeerGifts.com.
Although historians believe that Fatherís Day was first established by the ancient Babylonians 4,000 years ago, it has only been celebrated in the United States for the last 100 years. Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington, is credited with founding our modern Fatherís Day on June 19, 1910.
Dodd is said to have come up with the idea at the age of 27 while listening to a Motherís Day sermon in 1909. It only seemed natural to her that if we celebrated mothers, then we should also set aside a special day to celebrate fathers. This occurred to her because she lost her mother when she was only 16, and her father raised six children alone.
Ms. Dodd promoted her idea in much the same way that Anna Jarvis did to make Motherís Day a holiday. She soon garnered the support of the YMCA and the Spokane Ministerial Association, and it spread like wildfire across the U.S. and throughout the world.
In 1916, Woodrow Wilson showed his support for the holiday, and Calvin Coolidge followed suit in 1924. However, Fatherís Day would not be officially recognized until President Lyndon Johnson signed a one-time proclamation in 1966. Finally, in 1972, President Richard Nixon made Fatherís Day a permanent national holiday to be held the third Sunday of June.
If your father already has everything, the best gift you can give is one that does not last forever but brings a burst of momentary joy, precipitating feelings of appreciation that last throughout the year. A few products that fit this bill perfectly are the Father's Day beer gifts and Father's Day beer baskets available at BeerGifts.com.
We offer a wide variety of beer gifts for fathers of all types. Our gift baskets include several bottles of delicious beer from the top craft breweries in the country, and they can be purchased in several sizes and at a range of price points. However, if you believe your father would like beer accessories, we have plenty from which to choose. A set of Refresh beer steins from Spiegelau is a popular gift, but we also stock Bavarian beer glass sets and wooden six-pack carriers. However, if you want a gift that keeps on giving, we urge you to consider our Beer of the Month Club.
