Sonora Smart Dodd, whose father was an American Civil War veteran, thought that fathers should have a day too, to express our gratitude for fathers around the world. He wanted to give a special present to his father on his birthday (June 5), as he had raised his 6 children alone in the absence of their mother. However, as he couldn’t achieve his objective on the planned day, the celebrations were postponed to the third Sunday of June. Thus, the first Father’s Day was celebrated in Washington on June 19, 1910. Since 1966, these celebrations became official on the third week of June. For any celebrations of our father’s, we have listed some gift ideas for different interests.

SPEAKERS FOR MUSIC LOVERS
If you have a father who says that music heals the soul, then now he can listen to music wherever he wants thanks to a Bluetooth speaker. They are not waterproof, but these Bluetooth speakers are moisture resistant and can even be used in the bathroom. We recommend you choose a portable model that he can easily carry with him and control the music with just a single button. It is very important to experience the sound quality in the store when choosing a speaker. You can also purchase a protection package, to guarantee the electronic products you buy against possible user accidents.
