Father’s Day cards are so easy to lump into one category and simply perceive as a task that needs to be completed, but really they speak to different dads, or rather, different perceptions of those dads on the parts of their children. If you are lucky enough find a design that seems perfectly tailored to the individual, actually writing the card is that much easier. So just this once, a little generalizing isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

There’s the dapper dad. (Rifle, $4.5o).

Of course, the holiday is really upon us, and depending on where you are, that order may not reach you in time. So if you are particularly enamored of a card, go to the company’s store locator and see if there are any stockists near you. After all, you never know what you’ll find at a really quality stationery shop … you may even get the gift out of the way too!
