What type of gift does one select for a man? There are many Ukrainian-style options to choose from, from the standard to the unusual! Here are some ideas:
For the outdoor type, there are caps in many fabrics and designs (black with tryzub, ultra-suede, etc.), t-shirts and even comfortable Ukrainian socks! Dad can travel with tryzub-design nylon canvas gym bags, which can be used for many purposes. And for outdoor barbecues, there are colorful kozak-style aprons with mits!
For special occasions, dad will enjoy wearing a traditional embroidered shirt, which is available in white or black, in hand-embroidered and machine-embroidered styles.
When entertaining, maintain the kozak theme and serve drinks in fluted shot glasses with kozak or tryzub designs, and beer in hearty kozak steins.
A tryzub pen is a useful gift for the home or office! Or get a decorative pysanka mousepad or a wooden bulava paperweight in large or small sizes.
For the music-lover, there are CDs of zabava music and kozak songs. And for dad or grand-dad, Ukrainian audiobooks are available on CD in mp3 format for the man on the go! Ukrainian humor is available on CD (comic songs) and in mp3 collections, as well as in classic books of humorous works by Rudansky and Pavlo Hlazovyj.
On a more serious note, dad can read about the Halychyna Division, about DP camps, or history (Ukraine, Kozaks Set).
Many videos and DVDs are in stock, with subjects ranging from Ukraine's independence to Ukraine travel, historical documentaries such as Between Hitler and Stalin and the excellent new 10-part series Sobor na Krovi, to feature films such as the epic about Bohdan Khmelnytsky, With Fire and Sword.
And finally, a gold tryzub is always a welcome gift! There are also versions in silver or in glass. Jewelry and accessories may be kept in a beautiful lacquer box depicting a kozak on a horse, available in 2 sizes and hand-painted by artisans in Ukraine.
