The nation’s first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in the state of Washington. However, it was not until 1972, 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, that the day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States. Many years later, choosing gifts for dads and added to it the grads, is still a challenge, according to Aileen Avery, who has studied and written about both the psychology and history behind gift giving in her popular book Gift Rap: The History and Art of Gift Giving.


When looking for gifts to impress Dad it can sometimes be hard. So, in addition to great gifts they can unwrap, try giving dad a memorable experience too. This Father’s Day, give him the gift of travel. To ensure a stress-free and comfortable getaway, start by choosing the right hotel. The All Suites brands by Hilton have more than 800 properties all over the United States, and include Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites. Not only do they have spacious accommodations complete with separate living and kitchen areas, but they also offer a variety of free amenities, from daily breakfast to an evening reception. Starting at $99 a night, Dad will feel special and the budget will go farther. Go to to check out these deals. 


Holidays and new phases in life can lead to stress. As a matter of fact, a recent study found that more than a third of Americans said not having enough time to get organized leads to stress. This year, consider giving a unique gift that can help relieve stress by helping that special Dad or Grad get organized. Gladiator, the leader in garage storage and organization solutions for the past 15 years, has the answer with its best-selling Gladiator GearTrack Pack starter kit. It installs in just 15 minutes to organize tools, sports gear, and more to create space and gives Dads and Grads more time to do what they love.

Even the hooks can slide and be repositioned as seasons and hobbies change. The GearTrack Pack has a great price point of about $50 and is the foundation of the Gladiator organizational system of workbenches, cabinets, shelving and more that can be found at retail stores like Lowe's and Home Depot, or online at
