Design Idea A134 Tie Tac
by Susanne Kathol, Exclusively for Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®

Thank the father that raised your Mr. or Mrs. Right with a sentimental gift that'll last long after the big day. So often we thank moms, but it's important to make dads feel appreciated, too. These gift ideas can be presented at the rehearsal dinner or any event before the wedding (especially if they can be worn during the ceremony) or on the special day as part of a toast or reception celebration. Include a heartfelt note or statement of appreciation for a huge impact. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Handmade Jewelry

Surprise them with handmade jewelry for the wedding and beyond, such as a beaded or pendant necklace, bracelet or ring. Depending on the wedding theme you can incorporate tribal designs, semiprecious gemstones, mixed metals or leather cord. Find inspiration to create the perfect gift in Fire Mountain Gems and Beads' men's jewelry design ideas.

Make one-of-a-kind cuff links that the father of the bride and groom can wear at the wedding and other special occasions. With a cuff link base, you can easily adhere almost any type of sentimental gemstone, birthstone or personalized message. Special statements can include, "Thank you for raising the man of my dreams," or "Thank you for raising my Mr. Right."

Meaningful Money Clips

Remind the father of the groom or bride how much they are loved every time they use their personalized money clip. Shop money clips and embellish with seed beads or flat-back components, or add a custom message with metal stamping.

Tie Tacs and Clips

Show off your appreciation by gifting a custom tie tac or tie clip. Embellish with charms, cabochons or other flat-back components for a one-of-a-kind presentation.
