Gifts for Father's Day

Vintage Father's Day Gifts

In the U.S., the first Father's Day was celebrated on June 19th in 1910 but only by the state of Washington.  It did not become a national holiday until 1972 when Richard Nixon signed a proclamation declaring Father's Day a federal holiday during his re-election campaign.  Father's Day is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of June.

Some European and Latin American countries celebrate Father's Day  on St. Joseph's Day, a traditional Catholic holiday celebrated March 19th.

I wonder how many neckties have been purchased over the years as Father's Day gifts......  If you are looking for something a little unusual, check out CAROLINABLUELADY Vintage Collectibles on eBay - items are being added daily - Father's Day is less than 2 weeks away.
