With Father’s Day around the corner, getting the perfect present for your dad that isn’t really returned can be a difficulty. Luckily, there are lots of chances in the Hudson Valley to buy unique high-end products Dad will certainly like.
For a taste of a delicacy, treat Dad to a sampling of caviar, which is more cost-effective than you might think. “Caviar is not constantly based on rate; it’s based upon taste and structure,” says Kim Young, a salesperson at Solex Catsmo in Wallkill. “There is caviar that’s excellent, however not costly, and some that are incredible and extremely costly.”
Young says that a 1-ounce sampling makes a great present, combined with a bottle of wine or Champagne.
“There’s a really nice trout roe caviar with an amazing orange color and snap and pop to it, that’s extremely reasonably priced and simple on the palate,” Young says. The tiniest sampling of the trout roe is 3.5 ounces for $24.99. “There’s an Ossetra caviar that’s a dark-colored egg with gold flecks in it, a bit of a snap and a creamy texture.” The Ossetra opts for $138.99 for 1 ounce.
Inspect out his own luxury beer dispenser handcrafted by Perlick if Dad chooses a cold glass of brew to go along with the caviar. Beginning at around $3,000, Perlick offers outdoor and indoor undercounter beer dispensers varying from 15-inch systems to 24-inch units that can showcase approximately 2 faucets (two beers on tap).
Papas can make use of a little bling, too, and Jocelyn Klastow, vice president of Zimmer Brothers in Poughkeepsie, says that the existing trend is watches.
“Watches are very popular,” she says. “Men tend not to have a lot of devices, however they collect watches. You can alter them with each outfit, and the guy will consider his family when he takes a look at what time it is.”
Klastow says the material and the activity of the watch will certainly determine the price.
“A finer movement is going to mean a watch that is more labor extensive and a much better product,” she says. “A good, Swiss Army watch by Victorinox is a classic yet rugged look with a leather band and monochromatic style and costs around $500.”
For a higher-end watch, the Movado has a bigger look, three internal matching subdials and sapphire crystals.
“Watches aren’t a requirement anymore, but they do make a statement,” says Klastow.
Zimmer Brothers obtains some of their jewelry products with estate sales.
“We have vintage and antique fashion jewelry from Rolex watches that are reconditioned and ensured and start at $3,000 to vintage gold cufflinks from Tiffany and Van Clees that begin at $1,500.”
Unique gold rings can be personalized to consist of the family’s crest.
“Each household surname has its own crest, and it makes a customized gift,” states Klastow.
These unique presents begin at $1,500.
