Fathers today are hands-on, they play many different roles. They are not only providers, they are care-givers, role models and mentors too. By nurturing their sons’ and daughters’ talents and encouraging their interests, fathers give them the confidence to seize life’s opportunities, to grow and to flourish.
A father’s influence extends beyond childhood and well into adult life—it can even inspire their child’s choice of career. Philippe Ferrandis, the celebrated French jewelry designer, comes from a family of artists and inherited the creative gene. Seeing his father at work gave him the confidence to try his hand at jewelry design. “My father’s a sculptor, so I was born into an environment full of colors and shapes and materials,” he said in an interview in Salt magazine. “So I wasn’t frightened of experimenting with materials.”

A Unique Contribution
Father’s Day reminds employers and business partners of the unique role that fathers play throughout the year. It’s an opportunity to express appreciation with a gift that’s truly personal and reflects a father’s interests and lifestyle—one that will evoke precious memories or spark warm feelings every time it’s used.
Make It Personal
A father whose working wardrobe is full of suits will appreciate a sleek pair of stainless steel cufflinks that will go with any business shirt. If his day is full of meetings and presentations, an elegant black-lacquered ballpoint pen will make note-taking more of a pleasure—and impress colleagues. For a gift that will be used every day outside the office, a calf-skin wallet with a money-clip is the perfect choice. What’s more, it will age beautifully.
With Father’s Day on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to give some thought to a gift that will be cherished for years to come. Swarovski accessories are as stylish as they are practical—be inspired!
