Though it only became an official holiday in 1972, the annual celebration of Father's Day in the U.S.—which takes place on the third Sunday in June—was born in Spokane, Washington, long before that. In 1910, to be exact, when Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, set out to establish an official equivalent to Mother's Day for male parents.

Around the world, Father's Day festivities occur throughout the year, like the second Sunday of August in Brazil, where St. Joachim, the father of Mary, is said to be the inspiration for the holiday. In Thailand, it's celebrated on the December birthday of the widely admired King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Everyone wears yellow to commemorate the day. And in Germany, on Ascension Day, a tradition is honored celebrating fathers by organizing hikes and other gatherings—and supplying the men with a hefty stock of food and alcohol. Although American Father's Day customs center on showering Dad with gifts, that wasn't always a welcomed tradition. In fact, pushback against the custom of gift-giving is one of the primary reasons why Father's Day wasn't declared a national holiday until the 1970s.

Times have changed and now Father's Day is the ideal time to butter up your favorite guy with special something that's quintessentially him. He'll flip for a shiny new copper grill, hand-crafted gin, and a cozy alpaca throw for lazy Sundays.
