Give Dad Memories for Father’s Day

by on June 10th, 2013

As Father’s Day quickly approaches, I found myself asking the question, “What am I going to get dad this year?”

My dad is certainly one of the guys who seem to have everything. I began thinking of the really special memories I have made with him and they all seem to steer back to being outdoors. Father and son elk hunts in New Mexico, fishing in Texas, and sporting clays tournaments are some of the best times we have had together. When I saw the William Henry “Spearpoint” folding knife, I didn’t see just another gift for dad, but a chance to bring those memories back to him and create new ones as well.

A Note on Father’s Day

For dads, Father’s Day is a funny, wistful time to enjoy some time with the family: the children and adopted friends of kids, the parents of school friends who themselves become part of the family. It’s a day to see the structure you’ve built, and grown, and to enjoy the warmth and shelter of it. So often, dads go largely unnoticed. Dads commute, battle tough businesses, teach and toil- usually out of sight; however, it’s really nice to be seen once in awhile.

Simple gifts from kids and wives take on the sentimentality that is the currency of love for the family. The great thing, the silly one, the pocket knife from mom, pulled out to open the morning mail – each become a small monument and message of these bonds. It’s the point to this odd little holiday, to recognize and add to these ties that we so happily let bind.
