Gifts from WILLIAMSBURG® , inspired by the Founding Fathers (who were dads too)

Your father encouraged your first steps, taught you how to ride a bike, coached you through algebra and gave you advice on how to survive your freshman year in college. For Father’s Day, show him you cherish those memories and look forward to many more with a gift from Colonial Williamsburg.

Does he need extra storage space on his dresser? WILLIAMSBURG Porcelain Verse Dishes—available with the messages “Knowledge is Power” and “Energy and Persistence Conquer all things”—and a set of three Brass Boxes can be used to hold spare change and that new pair of monogrammed cufflinks from Colonial Williamsburg.

He may not be a golf pro, but he’ll look like one wearing a Golden Horseshoe Polo Shirt and carrying a Golden Horseshoe Money Clip and Credit Card Holder. A precision die-struck Golden Horseshoe Coin adorns the calfskin clip. Magnets hold bills securely in place, and a leather pouch holds credit cards.

From the time he read you bedtime stories to your college graduation, your father impressed upon you the importance of reading. Let him know you got the message with a pair of Brittania Bookends. With swooping curls of brass that are sand cast in the 18th-century manner, these bookends lend refinement to any study or home office.

Your father helped explore the world and now you can return the favor with our Terrestrial Globe on Compass Stand. It's the big, wide world of the 1500s in a size you can hold in your hand. This papier maché globe with brass fittings and a compass in the wooden base is 8 5/8 inches high and 5 3/4 inches in diameter.

Items are available in select stores at Colonial Williamsburg, through the WILLIAMSBURG® Catalog or through Colonial Williamsburg’s e-commerce site at For more information, call toll-free (800) 446-9240.
