If You Love Your Dad, Avoid These Gifts At All Costs
Father's Day is Sunday. Dads are looking forward to spending time with their kids and celebrating. I'm not the type of dad that needs a gift and there are many others like me. If you are giving a gift to dad this Sunday, give him something that means something to him. There are definitely gifts that dads do not want.
I'm looking forward to hanging out with my kids. We will toss the ball around, play some hoops, grill out and head out to a baseball game. I want to do something together that we all enjoy and can have some laughs doing. I'm also the kind of dad that would appreciate any type of sports memorobilia, my kids know me well and they tend to work with mom to do something special. Sentimental gifts don't suck.
Dad status is fun, it also means that I am old enough and wise enough to know what I definitely don't want for a gift. Although I think it would be a funny gag gift, a can of Spam wouldn't be something I would use. Hopefully you and your kids have a fun sense of humor and laugh at stuff like that if it happens to you.
There are gifts that are straight up asnine. Let's avoid giving dad those types of gifts this year. Dad busts his butt for the family, give him something that won't make him think you don't care or appreciate it.
Gifts That Dad Does Not Want
Dad isn't going to think it's cute or funny if you get busted on the eve of or on Father's Day. Don't play with matches, don't start fires, play nice in the sandbox and don't make dad come bail you out on Father's Day or anyday for that matter.
Dad might have a sense of great sense of humor but this gift stinks.
Dad might appreciate some brewskies. A fake beer belly is lame, dad will develop that on his own.
Creamer of the Month Club
Dad loves his coffee, odds are he likes it black. Save your money and get some steaks.
That's more of a hint then a gift. Be kind to dad. Those hands put some hard work in.
Trip To Lavender Farm
If the kids want to go I'll go. My kids have never mentioned lavender in a sentence. Find something else to do.
A Session Of Goat Yoga
I tried yoga once. Once. I didn't try it with a goat. Save the gift.
This is an implied chore gift. It's like giving mom a vacuum cleaner for Mother's Day if you assume that is how the household works. Our household is all hands on deck, we have no gender defining chores.
Where in the heck are you gonna put it? I guess that's what the internet is for.
Testicle Receiver Cover
I searched hi and lo for an image of the receiver cover. You know, the thing that goes in the receiver when you hitch isn't in place? I don't want it and I don't care for a cat testicle version either. No dad does.
