How to choose a gift for Dad

All dads are not created equal. Yours is unique and you know him best, so don’t be nervous. We’re sure you’ll pick out a gift he’ll love. Remember to consider these factors when choosing your gift.

  • Age. Of course, he’s older than you, but how much older is he? Don’t buy your hip young dad a gift more appropriate for a grandpa.
  • Personality. If your dad loves to spend time outdoors, he’d obviously prefer a new fishing rod to a new book. But a couch loving dad who prefers to spend time inside might feel differently. Consider your dad’s unique personality when choosing his gift.
  • Hobbies. Think about what your dad spends the most time doing, outside of work. Can you get him a gift that contributes to that? It’s always nice to receive a thoughtful gift.

Poem: Parent’s Murphy’s Law
  1. Parenting is a 24-hour-a-day job with no salary, no raises, no promotions and very few vacations.
  2. Parents are responsible for everything that happens to their children.
  3. Guilt and self-blame are occupational hazards.
  4. Parents don’t get worker’s compensation or any other fringe benefits.
  5. Parents can never retire — even when their kids ask them to.
  6. Parents “don’t get no respect” –until they die–and then it’s too late.

By: Bruce Lanksy

Whether you’re a dad or not, Happy Father’s Day. Don’t forget to celebrate with your old man this year. We suggest you get him an amazing gift, but even a phone call could mean the world to him, so no excuses.
