Six Father’s Day Gifts Your Dad Will Actually Use

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 19, and as a father of four, I thought, why not help you get your dad a present that he’ll actually use. That may sound harsh, but I’ve had almost 29 years worth of Father’s Day gifts that I no longer own and that have mostly gone unused. I appreciated each of them; but how many ties, hand-drawn cards (I still have them), and gift certificates to restaurants with menus full of things that someone trying to get over 90 should never eat can one man receive?

This year I wanted to give something back to all the other dads who are on the lead and often never get the credit or gifts they deserve. There are no Zales commercials for us, no, we’re getting Fudgy The Whale, and nobody is making a commercial where the family joins in and Dad buys his dream car.
