Flasks are traditionally thought of as a man’s accessory and were carried primarily on pilgrimages. They became popular in the US during the Prohibition because a flask is a discreet way to carry alcohol. Prohibition has long been abolished, but the need to discreetly carry alcohol has not. A flask is an ideal gift for the father in your life, except if he does not drink alcohol, then an American Armadillo bow tie (or two) will do.
