We’re no longer pitching in with our siblings to get Dad a 12 pack of socks on Father’s Day (unless you’re 12 years old in which case that’s still pretty cute). And we certainly can do better than a another tie or a hokey #1 Dad coffee mug (cringe). And wouldn’t it be nice to show up Mom’s gift for once? (Sorry Mom, but it’s true you get all the things).
The truth is Dad is much easier to shop for than we give him credit. There are very few surprises when it comes to dads, so we intuitively know a “dad” gift when we see one. Even from generation to generation, dads tend to like the same “dad” things to help them do “dad” stuff, so we just need to set them up with the latest and greatest gifts for dads.
The reality is dads are notoriously easy-going and will love anything you give them. In fact, they’re probably not even expecting anything, so the surprise gift alone is enough to stir up some potential “dad” tears.
