Ditch that boring tie and breath new life into fathers day gifts by giving him a gift with a French twist.

Last Minute Fathers day gifts he'll actually love to use

Fathers day gifts with a French Flair?

Fathers Day is called “la fête des pères” in French, and like the US and many other countries around the world, it’s celebrated on the third Sunday of June in France. 

This year, give your dad a father’s day gift with a French flair. 

Give him a “Best Dad’ T’shirt in French

Give your dad a “Best Dad In The World” T-Shirt written in French- “Meilleur papa du monde.”

Give him a quirky wood bowtie

Instead of giving him the A-typical tie for fathers day or his birthday, give him this awesome wooden moustache bow tie.

Give him a European style wallet

Instead of getting him a standard billfold, buy him a European style wallet with a coin pocket and built-in money clip.  If you’re not familiar with European wallets, they are taller than an American and Canadian sized wallet because some of the Euro bills are taller than American bills. For example, a 50 Euro bill is 77 mm high, and the 100 Euro bill is 82 mm, while American bills are only 66 mm’s high. European wallets have to accommodate for the larger bill sizes. The coin purse is convenient too carry spare change but also to carry the one and two euro coin pieces.
