The campaign to celebrate Father’s Day began in 1908, when Mother’s Day became an official holiday. Even after the national holiday’s establishment in 1910, however, it was not met with the same affection and excitement as Mother’s Day. Father’s Day was in desperate need of some branding measures, a commercial gimmick to give it the same warm appeal as Mother’s Day. What flowers were to Mother’s Day had yet to exist for Father’s Day, until the 1970’s when the neck tie would become the staple gift for Father’s everywhere. But today, that’s just too easy– we have moved past the simple commercial gimmicks. We have come up with some new gift ideas, both luxurious and practical. Read on to for our top 10 luxury goods for him – just in time for Father’s Day:
