Gifts for Father's Day

The day honouring fathers is celebrated in a number of countries on the third Sunday of June. The idea of observing a day in honour of fathers was conceptualized by Ms Sonora Smart Dodd, a loving daughter from Spokane, Washington, USA. Sonora attended a Mother's Day Sermon in 1909 and was struck with the idea that society must observe a day to honour the important contribution made by fathers in the raising of children. Encouraged by the love of her father, William Smart, a civil war veteran who single-handedly raised her and five siblings after the death of her mother, Sonora worked hard to make her concept a reality. The idea of celebrating Father's Day soon spread across the nation. Father's Day was recognized by a Joint Resolution of Congress in 1956. Finally, in 1972 President Nixon established Father's Day as a permanent national day of observance on the third Sunday of June.

Eventually, Father's Day came to be observed in many parts of the world, with sons and daughters honouring their father and expressing gratitude for his overwhelming presence in their lives. Giving gifts at this time has been in practice since the onset of this occasion. With the dawn of commercialization, the type of gifts presented has undergone an immense change. The market, today, is virtually filled with endless of options. While some have condemned the commercialization of these days, there are many others who support to it, stating the process as the best medium for creating awareness about the Father's Day celebration, thus helping in solidifying bonds between children and dads.

Whatever it is, commercialization or non-commercialization, what remains constant is the fact that Father's Day is a special occasion and that it gives every child a unique opportunity to thank his/her dad and reunite the ties of love, care and compassion.
