We’re here to help you with the ultimate Father’s Day gift idea, and we’re even going to dive into the history of Father’s Day, just so we know why this day is so special – let’s get started.
The History of Fathers Day
When it comes to the history of Father’s Day, two stories circle around the occasion. According to some, the first ever Father’s Day gift was given and celebrated in Washington state in the year 1910, June 19.
A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd established the idea of celebrating and honoring her father while she listened to a Mother’s Day sermon at church in 1909. At the time, she felt as though mothers were receiving all of the attention, and that her father also deserves a day of praise. After all, her dad was quite the man. William Smart was a veteran of the Civil War and was left a widower when his wife passed as she gave birth to their sixth child.
Alone, he went on to raise six children on a small farm in Washington. Sonora knew that she had to find a way to show appreciation for all of the hard work and love her father gave to her and her siblings as they grew up. And thus, Father’s Day was formed. Initially, she suggested June 5th, which was the anniversary of her father’s death. However, due to some bad planning along the way, the celebration in Spokane, Washington, began on the third Sunday in June.
The second story that revolves around this wonderful day happened all the way on the other side of the country in Fairmont, West Virginia. On July 5, 1908, Grace Golden Clayton suggested to the minister of the local Methodist church that they hold a service which specifically revolves around celebrating the fathers of the world, after a deadly mine explosion killed 361 men.
From here, they say that Father’s Day began to be celebrated locally in a bunch of communities across the U.S due to unofficial support to make Father’s Day a national holiday began immediately. In 1924, President Calvin “Silent Cal” Coolidge recommended that Father’s Day become a national holiday. But no official action was taken.
Fast forward to 1966, and you’ll find that through an executive order, Father’s Day was created. It was designated the third Sunday in June as the official day to celebrate this special day, however, it wasn’t until Nixon’s administration in 1972 did Father’s Day officially become recognized as a national holiday.

How hot do you go? We never thought that our Carolina Reaper beef jerky would be so popular. We thought well maybe it might sell okay at events, but we did not think it would sell well in retail stores because it is so hot. And the challenge in making Carolina Reaper jerky is to bring the flavor through. So many hot jerky products are just heat with no flavor, but FLAVOR is what we do.
Some people believe the ideal snack should be mouthwatering and punishing all at the same time. If that’s the case, then Jeff’s famous hot & spicy beef jerky certainly fits the bill. It starts off savory and sweet, then kicks you in the mouth with a heat that builds and builds.
