From the ubiquitous tie to yet another boring, tiresome dress shirt, dad deserves better when it comes to gift giving on Father's Day.
This annual June holiday isn't far away, which means plenty of grateful sons and daughters will show their appreciation for dear, old dad with some sort of a gift. The hope moving forward, however, is that those gift givers think about the father on their list and implement at least a little bit of creativity when it comes to what they're buying.
And when you think of Father's Day gifts and what to buy specifically, you don't always have to stick with the norm or, on the opposite end of the spectrum, go completely over the top with a particular selection, item or product of choice.
Instead, you really should take a long, hard look at what your dad enjoys, practical items he'll need or simply rewarding him for a year's worth of hard work and dedication since last year's Father's Day. What you don't want to do is phone in the effort for dad and simply find a retailer and blindly pick the aforementioned dress shirt or another item that seems more like a rerun from years prior rather than something unique or heartfelt.
Ditching the tie should be commonplace, unless of course dad is overtly hinting at wanting or needing one or is the consummate professional and could always use another one. That said, why not throw dad a curve ball and really make Father's Day something special, like surprising him with tickets to a baseball game or perhaps even something else summer oriented (i.e. day at an amusement park or even a race car event).
