I’m in the same boat, well sort of.

My parents got divorced when I was 8, and although he did pay child support, I didn’t see him again until I was 14, I have not seen him since I was 16, but he writes about once a year.

That being said, I don’t really know him all that well, he isn’t helping pay for our wedding, but all of our parents are getting a gift at our reception.

I’m thinking I might just get him an engraved watch, or pocketwatch. I know for a fact he has no use for cufflinks.

Maybe a money clip?

Tell us a little about his lifestyle – is he more of a blue collar worker or a white collar worker? Tie guy or jeans guy? Does he have quite a bit of money and can buy anything he wants, or does he struggle? Is he married? Does he live in a large city or a smaller town? Does he use gadgets? Are there any sports or hobbies he is interested in?

I know you don’t know him too well, but I imagine you know some sort of basics like that… that will help me give you some ideas! How much do you want to spend?

I like the website Uncommon Goods for gift ideas.
