At an auction garage in Lagos Nigeria I saw a 1954 Marine FC Jersey. The very football club my daddy played for and I’ve seen that exact jersey on some of his black and white photographs. So I decided to buy the jersey for him as a gift for the 2012 edition of Father's Day.
Although, I also bought a Plasma flat screen TV set and a Samsung Galaxy2 Smartphone for him, but he got stock with the Marine FC jersey and usually prides himself with it every weekend. I can imagine how thrilled he was and the memories the novelty gift brought back to him. Till date he usually ask me again and again”Where on earth did you get this jersey from…?” Well, that was my surprise gift to him.
2013 Father's day is here and perhaps you are thinking of how to surprise your daddy or grand pa with some novelty gifts. Then you should do some research to find out what can capture his deepest emotions. If you think back, you may get some ideas from ‘the good old days’ stories he usually tell.
Another way is to ask his friends. Find out what your daddy is so passionate about in his hay days or what he lived for. In fact, from what his close friends can easily remember of him can help you decide what gift you can get for him this Father's day.
