Father's Day Gift Ideas - Unique Gifts for Dad

Are you looking for some new gift ideas for Father's Day and would you like to give something more than the classic silk tie?  If you answered "yes" to these questions then read on and I will share with you my personal picks for Father's Day gifts.

Does your dad have a men's valet box or valet tray? First, you might want to know what a valet box is. It is the men's version of a women's jewelry box. All men have accessories such as cuff-links, tie-clips, watches and cell phones as well as keys, loose change and other items that can get messy if there is no way to organize them. Valet trays and valet boxes were made to store these accessories neatly.

Valet trays and boxes are usually placed on dresser tops. There are two basic styles. One type has an open top with several compartments and the other kind is a box with compartments with a top that closed and/or locks. Some of the valet boxes also feature charging stations for cell phones and other electronic devices. The trays and boxes are typically made out of wood or in some cases leather and are good looking as well as being extremely useful.

The price ranges of valet trays and boxes begin around $45, the most popular price range is between $75-$200 and at the higher end of the scan you will spend around $300 for an elegant handcrafted valet.

While we're talking about watches, another possibility for Father's Day is a travel watch case. A good example is the black leather five watch travel case made by RaGar. It is leather and available in either black or brown and fits neatly into a suitcase. If your dad likes to take his watches on trips, then this is a perfect gift which he will appreciate for a long time to come.

There is one more item in the watch category and it is a watch-winder. Watch winders are storage devices for self-winding watches. The watch winder boxes are powered by batteries or ac adapters and provide gentle motion to the stored watches so that they will always be ready to use even if they have not been worn for several weeks. Watch winders cost anywhere from $200 and up, but they are definitely a prized item for those people with several self-winding watches.

Whichever valet box or watch case that you choose, see if you can get one with a personalized engraved name plate. This is a free option on some of our most popular boxes and it provides a nice personal touch to the gift.

So, these are my suggestions for Father's Day and now it is up to you to start looking for the best possible gift.
