Sonogram Cufflinks: Really?

The present I won't be giving my husband for Father's Day.

sonogram cufflinks

Julie Wolfson: When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I found the doctor's appointment to be exciting. The doctor gave us copies of grainy, gray images showing us that our little baby was growing. I may have even carried the first sonogram photos to share with the grandparents. Maybe one of these images even made it into the baby book.

Now that we have two kids, just as much as any mom, I love to take cute pictures of our adorable daughters. In our house, there are photos in albums, on the computer, in our phones, on the wall. You get the picture. And we've all seen moms wear their children's names or images on jewelry. It's cute. Many of these trinkets are cherished Mother's Day presents. (Are you wearing one right now?)

But when I saw on NOTCOT a pair of cufflinks with sonograms photos, I almost spit out the iced tea I was drinking. Just in case you were looking for the perfect present, tiny sonogram images can be fused to a set of cufflinks. Then Dad will feel that he must wear these cufflinks to his next formal event.

(Though my husband and I enjoy dressing up and going out, we haven't been to an event where people wear cufflinks in quite some time. Maybe not since our own wedding.)

So be a happy, proud parent. Wear your child's name or image to celebrate the love of parenting. Please let me know if your husband is wearing his sonogram cufflinks. Maybe it will be the best $65 you have ever spent -- but for me personally, this Father's Day my daughters and I will be trying to think of another fun gift to tell him that we love him.

I think it’s a great gift for a person who wears cufflinks. My husband is a lawyer and frequently wears cufflinks, so these may not be a bad idea. But if your husband isn’t into tie tacks, cufflinks, pocket watches, etc. (or really has no good excuse to wear them besides once every five years) - you might want to go with a more appropriate gift.

Quite a few people say cuff links are in the past, but from my viewpoint, they are totally incorrect. Cuff links are here to stay, regardless if they are sported at weddings, special events or simply for a good laugh. They really do spice up someones attire and every single time I gift a pair to a loved one, they think it’s the best thing to happen to them since sliced bread.

Cufflinks are here to stay. Same goes for bow ties, tie tacs, tie clips and so on. They are not only ways to finish off business attire, but also a way to show your personality on any given day!
