Vintage Fathers Day Gifts
For vintage Father's Day gifts there is no better snapshot in time than the Sears catalog. In 1959 the merchandise was styled to the times and came with Good, Better and Best choices. The day after Fathers Day Dads would mill around the water cooler sizing each other up and gauging their families love as they displayed their newest accoutrements in clothing, jewelry or personal grooming they were awarded for Fathers Day.
