Father’s Day Gifts

Monday, May 14th, 2018

Father’s Day 2018 falls on June 17th this year.

It is a time to honour dads, grandfathers, step-dads and all men who act as a father figures.

“According to Wikipedia, Father’s Day was first celebrated in the Spokane YMCA on June 19, 1910, by Sonora Smart Dodd. Her father was the civil war veteran William Jackson Smart, who was a single parent that raised his six children.”

Every year, you ponder what to get dear old Dad. Are you looking for something that is not the usual Father’s Day gift staples, like ties and socks? How about something fun and unique for Dad on his special day? We have some unique Father’s Day Gift ideas at Danna Bananas to celebrate Dad. Musical Dad, Tech Dad, Sports Dad, Funny Dad and Game Dad, whatever defines him, we have you covered with lots of Father’s Day suggestions. Go ahead, make dad’s day with a memorable gift!

Do you know someone who loves music? Well, a gift of music soothes one’s soul and never grows old.  We all know with the older <wink> generation, vinyls or have never really disappeared probably just stowed away in some milk crates or a closet so we don’t need to say bust out your record player.  The cost of a record seemed cheaper back when you were growing up in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s but everything is relative, right?
