The idea for Father’s Day was first suggested in 1910 in the United States but it was not until 1966 that it was officially recognized as a national holiday there. It is of course celebrated around the world and in most countries it falls on the third Sunday in June. Here in Handmade Design Studio, we have many unique Irish gifts for you to honour Dads this weekend.
