If you maybe forgot to get your Dad a gift, we have some ideas for you from 1993 in this week’s Flashback Friday.
This Father’s Day, some stores are telling you goodbye to the tie and hello to originality.
“I had my husband come in with our two kids and get their pictures taken as a Father’s Day gift to him. Looks at em, and they’re adorable.”
Glamor Shots, a store that gives you a makeover before your picture is made, is offering a two for one sitting fee for dads.
“Its a little harder to drag them in here because they’re afraid we’re going to put lipstick on them. But other than that, no,no they have a great time just like everybody else does.”
But not every store wants you to toss the tie completely. Some want you to just spruce it up a bit.
“Another thing thats new is, it’s called a tie chain, this part right here hooks over the button on a man’s shirt and then you just pull the tie right through here and this tie chain part just lays right over it.”
And even jewelry stores don’t want your dad to be like everybody else. These silver rings are new this year and they’re selling between $25 and $45.
In your search for originality, don’t be too quick to pass up old standbys this Father’s Day. For instance, Swiss Colony has a new line of gourmet coffee that are selling like hot cakes. And if the traditionals aren’t selling something new, they’re helping you find the perfect gift in some unique ways.
“What I have here are the Scheels 50 Father’s Day gift ideas and its got a wide variety of items on it, a lot of the traditional items on it, fishing items, golf merchandise and a lot of shoes and clothing items as well.
