Father's Day Gift Ideas

Shopping for a history buff dad can be rewarding, if done right. If the dad you are shopping for loves learning about the stories and events that shaped our world, here are some tips that may help you find the perfect gift:

1) Identify his specific history interests: Does he prefer ancient history, or is he more interested in more recent events? Does he have a particular region or civilization that he is particularly interested in? Understanding his interests will help you narrow down your gift options.

2) Look for books, magazines, and other educational materials that fit his area of interest: Look for titles that aligns with your dad's specific interests or consider purchasing a subscription to History By Mail which covers a wide range of American History topics.

3) Consider tickets to a historical site or museum: Most cities have at least one historical site or museum that offers tours or exhibits on local or regional history. This can be a great way to spend quality time with your dad while also learning something new.

4) Purchase a museum membership: Many museums offer membership programs that give members access to exclusive events and discounts on tickets and merchandise. This is a great gift for dads who love to visit museums and learn about history in person.

No matter what gift you choose, the most important thing is to show the dad you are shopping for how much you appreciate him.

Founding Fathers Whiskey Glasses

The Founding Fathers of the United States didn't plan the revolution in coworking spaces. They met in taverns. Toast their drink-fueled disruption with these rocks glasses, each of which bears a Founding Father's personal seal, signature, and a quote. "Honesty is always the best policy," said George Washington, who had one of the biggest whiskey distilleries in the country at Mount Vernon. "Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such Thing as Wisdom; and no such Thing as public Liberty, without Freedom of Speech," said Ben Franklin, who published The Drinker's Dictionary, listing 200+ slang phrases for being drunk ("Pidgeon Ey'd," "Jambled," "had a Thump over the Head with Sampson's Jawbone," etc.). Makes a great gift for a history or politics buff, teacher, lawyer, or lover of the American dream. Made in Pennsylvania. See the content of each glass here.
