Father’s Day

Father’s Day – Sunday, June 18, 2017
Gifts, balloons. greeting cards and custom gift wrapping for Dad on Father’s Day.

Father’s Day has become a day to not only honor fathers, but all men who act as a father figure; stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers, and adult male friends are all honored on Father’s Day.

We have a fun and interesting selection of gift for Dad; suspenders, ties, hats, collectibles and balloons.

The first Father’s Day was observed on June 19, 1910 in Spokane Washington. At about the same time in various towns and cities across America, other people were beginning to celebrate a “father’s day.” In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father’s Day. Finally in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father’s Day.

We have some fun and interesting items for Dad; suspenders, ties, hats, collectibles, and balloons.

It was Mrs. John B. Dodd, of Washington, who first proposed the idea of a “father’s day” in 1909. Mrs. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart. William Smart, a Civil War veteran, was widowed when his wife (Mrs. Dodd’s mother) died in childbirth with their sixth child. Mr. Smart was left to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington state. It was after Mrs. Dodd became an adult that she realized the strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent.
