It’s pretty easy to figure out what to get people on most holidays. On birthdays and Christmas, either someone makes a wish list, or you can always just give them money. When there’s a wedding, or when someone you know is having a baby, the lucky bride/husband/mom/pop to be usually takes a wish list a department store. How easy is that? And speaking of easy…on Mother’s Day, all you have to do is give her a hug and some flowers, and Mom is happy. But Father’s Day? That one’s not so easy.
Think about it. When you ask Dad, “What do you want for Father’s Day,” he’ll give one of two responses: “I don’t care,” or, much more likely, “Nothing.” Now, you and I both know that Daddoes care what you get him, to some degree, and he certainly doesn’t want you to get him nothing. But dads just don’t have it in them to tell you what they want for Father’s Day. And so, you kind of have to guess.
But it doesn’t really have to just be a guess. You just need to pay attention. Is Dad a football fan? If so, what’s his favorite team? My dad likes the Pittsburgh Steelers. Does you dad have any hobbies? My dad loves to work out on the grill. Just by paying attention to things like these, you’ll never run out of ideas for things to get for Dad for Father’s Day. But do not forget you can always send him fathers day ecards.
