The celebration of fatherhood dates back to the Middle Ages and is observed on 19 March, as the feast day of Saint Joseph—referred to “Nourisher of the Lord" in Catholic Europe and “the putative father of Jesus" in southern European tradition. This celebration was brought by the Spanish and Portuguese to the Americas, where the date changed to the third Sunday of June. In Latin America, Father’s Day is still celebrated on 19 March.

The celebration may be rooted in the Middle Ages, but yours Father’s Day gifts shouldn’t be as medieval. A look at a few Father’s Day gift ideas for tomorrow:
