I am having a heck of a time picking out the father of the bride gift. We are getting both of our mothers handmade handkerchiefs with poems I wrote on them and his dad a compass with a very sweet message from my fiance.
My dad is hard because I know he wouldn't appreciate the compass because he's a practical guy who has no use for a compass. He virtually has no hobbies, he's not a drinker, and he won't be in need of cuff links.
He does have a pocket knife collection but they're all antique pocket knives so I don't know if he'd appreciate a personalized one.
I am leaning towards a 2 spot watch box since he wears 1 watch for work and another for going out and get it personalized with his initials in the background and "Father of the Bride" in the foreground but I feel this isn't personal enough to reflect our love and respect for him and for all he has done for us over the years. Should I get that and just put a nicely messaged card with it??
Any advice or suggestions?
