Gift Ideas for Dads and Grads
Jun-02-2009
June is here -- the start of summer, Father's day, and graduations -- giving us another opportunity to honor people with gifts.  People can choose from a number of options, like ties or new socks for dads and nice pens or maybe brand new cars for graduates.  While these ideas make great gifts, think about giving something that makes people feel extra special.  I suggest jewelry, such as diamond pendants and mens gold chains.

I remember back when I graduated many years ago, jewelry was definitely not on mind?¦I was scared that I have to work a real job but excited too.  I was finally done taking stupid exams, writing papers, and can start earning money.  And my parents were going to throw me a big party, which meant getting lots of money!  The party was so cool, and I did get lots of money.  I thought money was going to be the best present, but it turned out that I treasured my grandma's gift the most.  She gave me a simple chain necklace, nothing too flashy.  I never really wore real jewelry before, not too many guys I knew did.  Yet, for some reason, when I tried it on, I felt like an adult, like I was finally stepping out of my life as a student and into a real working man.  Because of this experience, I now give jewelry as presents for special occasions and suggest it to other people.

When buying jewelry, I take time in choosing which one to buy because people have different styles and the price is pretty high.  First, I think about the gift recipients' fashion styles -- flashy, romantic, clean J-Crew type, simple, etc.  Then I think about what types of jewelry they wear, or if they even wear jewelry at all.  I look at all the trends, and then I ask my wife's opinion.  She generally makes the final decision!

For example, my grandfather loves gold.  Any piece of jewelry that he bought for my grandmother was gold.  He had a gold rope-shaped necklace, which matched his gold bracelet, passed down to him from his father.  Ten years ago, the lock broke, and the bracelet fell off unbeknownst to him, devastating him.  Later, I found a mens gold bracelet shaped like a rope and gave it to him for Father's Day.  He was elated!  I knew what type of jewelry he liked and got it for him.

Another example, when my niece graduated last year with a Masters in Counseling, I wanted to get her a beautiful piece of jewelry, as well as money, to honor her career choice.  Being a girly-girl who liked wearing white gold bracelets, I didn't want to just pick any type of jewelry, so my wife suggested diamond charms to go with her bracelets.  I ended up giving her an angel diamond charm with a huge smile its face to brighten up her days.  To this day, my niece swears that it uplifts her day, especially when her clients' issues start wearing her down.

Overall, jewelry makes a perfect gift to fathers, graduates, and just about anyone.  Just consider their style and accessory-usage when choosing that thoughtful jewelry piece.  That gift will be something that they will treasure for a long time.
