Dads are almost always embarrassing in one way or another … those of use with terrible joke-telling Dads always wished for the ones whose worst vice was giving sloppy kisses at the school gate, and while some of us disliked how aloof and stand-offish our Dads were, others lamented the fact that he’d never grow up and act his age! As adults, though, we all tend to realize these complaints are more about the fact that we were teenagers, than about any faults on our Dad’s part. If you had a Dad that was ‘one of the gang’, liked to rock and roll all night, and party every day, we’ve got some awesome gifts to help you indulge his weaknesses! Now that you’re perfectly comfortable with them, of course ;-D
Evening wear is one of the few arenas where men can enjoy bracelets – for most male occupations, there are either a safety or style hazard! This Inori Macho Man bangle may make your father break out into the Village People (;-) ), but will also make him look strangely cool while doing so! It is made of polished stainless steel, and the open-bangle design makes it a perfect fit for just about all male wrists. The bracelet diameter is 6.5cm, and you have space to engrave a special message on the back … and also on the front, if you so desire!
It takes a certain special style to pull off a unique piece of jewelry like the extra-wide bangle at right – and if you think your Dad can do it, this will be a birthday gift that is well-used and loved. This wide bracelet is designed specially for evening wear, with its prominent 30mm width and three-ring design. The diameter of the bracelet is 6cm, so it is a slightly snugger fit than the Inori one above. It is made of stainless steel with a matte textured finish, and ships for free to you no matter where in the world you are!
Your Dad doesn’t have to be a pubber, clubber, rocker and roller, or a jukebox-sing-alonger to enjoy evening wear jewelry, though! This gentlemen’s club pendant by Inori is much more understated and subtle than some of the other pieces, and very classy. It features a double-sided design, where the black half of the pendant is silver on the reverse side. It measures an imposing 4.5cm long, and is a stand-alone item – if he already has a favorite chain to wear, this will slip straight on.
Going out is a great excuse to wear pendants for guys – yes, he’s your Dad, but that shouldn’t stop him feeling a bit handsome! This stainless steel and cubic zirconia pendant is the male equivalent of costume jewelry. The sparkle of the cubic zirconia will catch and flash under a blacklight, and the long, thin design is very masculine. The stainless steel cable necklace pictured is included with the pendant; this sits nice and high around the neck, at only 45cm long.
Where women’s jewelry often becomes bigger and more fanciful for evening wear, for men, the opposite is true .. at least in the watch department. Watches with all the compasses, world time zones, depth meters and speed calculators are for the day time. At night, your Dad will want to keep it simple and slick – which is why we love the Citizen Automatic see-through men’s watch at right. The simple analog design is surprisingly tough – it is approved for use in the mines, is 100m water resistant, and comes with a handy push button deployment buckle that leather strap watches usually don’t have. One of its best features, though, is the huge discount off RRP that it comes with!
One little contemporary characteristic that it is often better to keep for night-owl fathers, is the luminous hands and dial that sports and multifunction watches often come with. The Wenger ‘Escort’ watch at right retains the luminous hands and markers, and incorporates them into a sleek, stylish look for evening wear excellence. Wenger make extremely tough watches, no matter how stylish they also are, and this one is 50m water resistant, with Swiss quartz movement, mineral crystal glass, and a 3 year manufacturer warranty. After all, you wouldn’t want his watch to break when it came time to come home!
Even if your Dad does keep his wedding ring on to go out to the pub or club (I know at least one husband that would fear for his life if he didn’t!!), this Hot Diamonds ‘Sprint’ ring can make an excellent, stylish accompaniment. The band is definitely dress, rather than everyday size, at 10.8mm with a decent thickness. It is made of smooth, silky sterling silver, and has three brilliant cut white diamonds in the face. Despite all the luxury, though, it is actually quite an affordable Father’s Day jewelry gift.
And if you have a Dad that just twiddles his thumbs and waits for the phone to ring when he’s made to stay at home, he has probably spent a fair amount of time where he really likes to be … in dark, smoky back rooms, with a cue in one hand and a chalk block in the other. This 8 ball game theory pendant is perfect for snooker-obsessed Dads – the 8 ball is generously sized, at 3.7 cm, and the entire thing is made of tough stainless steel. If your Dad doesn’t have a chain already, the smooth box-link style Inori chain pictured is the perfect accompaniment. Both of the pieces ship for free, no matter where you are located.
If you have a Dad that only comes out at night (so to speak!), there are so many awesome options for him within the range. Check out our Father’s Day gift ideas for more inspiration.
