While people’s personalities certainly evolve over their lies, they don’t necessarily change much – and that can make gift-giving rather hard sometimes! If you have one of those Dads that is always watching sport, playing sport, talking about sport or sleeping, then you have probably given him the football, the foam beer-holding hat and the baseball mitt already! However, there are just as many suitable and much more sentimental jewelry gifts that are great for the sporty Dad this September – read on for our best!
We actually have a Father’s Day Gift Ideas section, which you are welcome to browse yourself – there is an enormous range of presents selected using our several decades of combined experience in helping lost sons and daughters find Father’s Day gifts! A sporting watch is the obvious choice, and one of the best is pictured at the beginning of the article. The Citizen Chronograph Sports Watch has hour, minute and second functions for timing that lap of the track or the pool, or checking on how long is left in the second half of the game! It has a push button buckle for convenience, and is water resistant to 100m – so a little sweat from a friendly match on the weekend is hardly going to damage it! It is made from hard wearing stainless steel, and comes with a five year warranty, Citizen are so confident of the quality of their products.
Citizen are such a popular brand, and do the sports watch so well, that we thought we’d give you another option! The Eco-Drive Dive Watch, pictured, is designed for recreational and professional divers, and if your Dad is worried about getting his watch wet, he needn’t be with this one! It is water resistant to an awesome 200m, and has a rubber strap to help prevent sticking and degradation from salt water. It has split time, as well as a depth function, and also comes with an awesome discount … if you like Citizen watches, you’ll find that almost all of them are available at a reduced price through Gilletts, so be sure to bookmark the Citizen page on the site, with over 100 products at better than retail prices.
If your sporty Dad already has a perfectly good watch (!), then you’ll want to look for something that is hard-wearing and won’t get in the way of his active lifestyle. A pendant can be a great choice, especially this stainless steel one set on a black cord necklace. You can actually tie the cord necklace shorter if you like (or, of course, take it to your jewellers to have it shortened). The rectangular pendant gives you the opportunity to engrave a message on the back, also. It has a matte finish which will not show minor wear, even after years of use.
Of course, there are many popular sports that never even involve getting up out of a seat – and we don’t just mean wheelchair basketball, or the remote-control Olympics. Car racing is every bit as competitive and highly skilled as any sport where you are running around on your two legs, and if this is what your Dad is into then the 18 carat gold and stainless steel key holder will be just the thing for him. Of course, this is suitable for both men and ladies, so you could get a matching one for Mum … just make sure they don’t get each other’s keys mixed up, as your racy Dad won’t like driving the bright sparkly red bubble car to work!
For a unique Father’s Day gift for a sporty man, the heavy stainless steel necklace (pictured) is hard wearing and impossible to scratch! The stainless steel links have black balls between them, and the necklace will sit slightly shorter around a man’s neck, as it is only 50cm long. This means that for men who are on the go, it will not flop around and get in the way, just sit nicely around his neck, reminding him of his lovely children!
