Last Minute Gifts For Fathers Day With A French Twist

Last minute fathers day gifts with a French twist

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

Fathers Day, called “la fête des pères” in French, is celebrated on the third Sunday in June like it is in the US and many other countries around the world. And like many countries around the world, Dad’s always seem to get the same type of gift. A tie, black socks, beer of the month club.

This year, try giving him a gift with a French twist. Any gift. It just has to have a French flair to it. Here are a few gift ideas for you to consider.

A new wallet

Instead of getting him a standard bill fold, 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 wallet 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. European style wallet with money clip and coin pocket

Virtual fathers day card in French

Last but not least, if you want to send your dad card, send him a virtual fathers day card in French. Here’s a cute site that I like to use. Instead of an inanimate card, you can choose short video clips which you can customise. Everything is in French bu you should be able to figure out what everything means.
