June means Father’s Day, and like Mother’s Day, it falls on the second Sunday of the month. While Mother’s Day is one of the most celebrated non-religious holidays in the US, Father’s Day is still a pretty big deal. There are more than 70 million fathers in the world, and according to the US Census Bureau there were an estimated 1.96 million single fathers in 2012. And with the rise of caretaker fathers and stay-at-home dads (189,000 in the US alone), there’s even more reason to celebrate Dad. Especially writer dads.
So what do you get for the writer dad in your life?
You can always get him a sweet tie, but if you’re looking to celebrate your literary papa in a more unique way, here are a few gift ideas you can get him for Father’s Day.
These nifty little literary cuff links that just scream style (and literary genius):
This totally unique book rest and toilet paper holder for the king’s throne room:
Some noise-cancelling bluetooth earbuds to block out all those noisy distractions:
A copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (note: papa doesn’t need to be an easy rider to read this!):
A personalized pocket watch to help him keep track of time when he’s lost in Writerland:
Of course, if you don’t like any of these gift ideas, you could just publish your novel with Kbuuk and give him the best dedication a dad ever did see.
What are you getting your writer dad (or your dear old regular non-literary dad) for Father’s Day?
