Remember that old fairy tale about the King who had the three daughters and asked each to compare their love for him to something material? Two of the three daughters just wanted to impress him and named extravagant possessions but the third, his favorite, compared her love to him to salt. Initially, the King was angry and banished her from the Kingdom but after she snuck in, stole the salt from the kitchen and showed him how essential salt is, the King took her back and forgave her. I’ve been thinking about that story a lot now that the time of year to honor dear ol’ Dad is upon us. Dads always say ‘oh don’t get me anything, your love is enough’ or are perfectly happy with a coozy and a some tickets to the game but Dad’s can be bigger divas about gifts than mom (hello, the story?). Like all men, they need to know you care so this year, show dad how much you appreciated him scaring away your high school suitors with some gifts he’ll love. Here are our top picks from The Well Appointed House:
You may not think it but Dads, like Moms, love to have pictures of their children and grandchildren around. This Antique Golfers Decoupage frame is perfect for the dad who likes the links. Customize the frame with a phrase or monogram to personalize the gift and then put in a fabulous black and white photo to complete the whole vintage vibe. If your father would rather sport some links rather than get his sport on, the links than these monogram cufflinks are the perfect option.
