No, we are not planting a tree for dad this year on Father's Day.
Instead, we are gifting him a charm that represents life this year.
Why a tree? What does it symbolize?
Well, it’s pretty simple: a dad is symbolically the roots of a family, and the kids and grandkids are the branches.
Life is extended from dad.
He is the foundation, the roots, the soil the strength.
Life from which we developed.
Without him, we wouldn’t have grown up to be the apple of his eye? (Ok, that might be a bit cheesy, but it works with reference to the tree, right?)
Trees make wonderful gifts, and we think DAD will rock this dog tag necklace. Explain it to him about the symbolism of the tree and why you chose this symbol. If you need a bit of guidance on what a tree symbolizes, we have a post for that here.
Another idea is perhaps to gift this necklace along with a tree to plant in his honor and tell him you are watching it grow just as he is watching, loving, and nurturing you.
Something totally cool about this charm is that it was hand-drawn by a Los Angeles based tattoo artist. He actually drew the image and we converted it into a pendant. The style is edgy, perfect for a guy that loves jewelry.
We’ve created a video to show you the style and features of the pendant. Check it out here .

What is a hamsa hand amulet?
Most commonly, it is just known as a hamsa or spelled as chamsa, even khamsa.
There are many interpretations of these particular usages.
The hand is often depicted with an eye in the center of its open palm, presumably to ward off negative energies, including the gaze of envy.
