Father’s day is fast approaching, but there is still time to make sure that your dad’s day is extra special this year. Father’s Day is a really important occasion in the iWoodesign calendar, as it prompts us to acknowledge the contribution our dads' have made both to our family and to society at large. Helping our children understand the importance of Father’s Day goes a long way towards strengthening the father-child relationship, as it is a great opportunity for the child to express their love and respect for their father – that might not otherwise be so obvious!

Father’s Day History

The concept of Father’s Day was born by an Ms Sonar Dodd in 1909 in Spokane, Washington. Ms Dodd attended a Mother’s Day sermon in 1909 and felt that it was only fair that if there were a day to celebrate mothers there should also be a day to celebrate fathers! Their father brought up Ms Dodd herself, with her five siblings alone, after their mother died in childbirth – a fact, which may have heightened her feelings of inequality in parental celebration. Ms Dodd toiled tirelessly for several years, determined that Father’s Day would be recognised and was delighted to see President Calvin Coolidge recognise it officially in 1924. President Richard Nixon saw the popularity of the festival in years to come and established it as a permanent date in the national calendar – to be held on the third Sunday of every June.

The Significance of our Father

Ms Sonora Dodd came up against many barriers when trying to get her idea for a Father’s Day off the ground – mainly as people at the time mistakenly believed that Mothers are the sole nurturer of the child. However, nowadays we know how important a father is to a child, as well as a mother. Fathers are really important for the emotional well-being of a child, as well as their development. Many children depend on their fathers to guide them in emotional, physical, and financial matters. Fathers have different roles, depending on the sex of their children too – for daughters they are the first man they adore while for sons, their father is the man they aspire to be one day.

Importance of Father’s Day

Father’s Day gives us the chance to express our thanks to our Dad’s for their unconditional love and affection. It also shows your dad that you do acknowledge everything he does for you, and it can make him so proud to know that! That is why it is so important to take full advantage of the day and show your father exactly how much he means to you. The best way to do this is to do the small things that your dad appreciates, and to show him exactly how much you love him by gifting him one of iWoodesign’s Luxury Gifts for Men.
