GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
Attention moms, according to a retailmenot.com survey, 58% of dads felt they spent more money on Mother’s Day than you spent on them for Father’s Day. If you get them gifts that match their temperament, interests, lifestyle, etc., we think that’s trumps what you spent. Especially if you get a bargain. And we’re all about the bargain.
If you can find a bargain on a thing he’ll love, then that just leaves more in your budget to A) find another fab gift B) take him out to dinner and/or a movie/play C) find a fabulous partner/bundle gift.
Might Dad love to step out in this Stafford Tuxedo Jacket? You’ll love the great price. Classic styling with notched collar, side vents and satin-trimmed lapel. Vest and pants also available at half off. The jacket would go great with the tassel shoes in the style post. Also on sale!
Or pair the jacket with a Stafford Satin Pre-tied Bow Tie.
You might jazz up his summer attire with this Braided Classic Fedora. Rollable & Packable. Fedoras also available at stores like Nordstrom and Kohls, and this site has a large collection.
Let him carry you on his sleeve. Or, your picture at least with the Engraved Locket Cuff Links. Polished sterling silver cuffs holds 2 photos. One initial engraved on face.
