But for real, do men want things that make them have to do work for Father’s Day? Everywhere I look, there are grilling sets and tools and lawnmowers ($$!). What says “I love you” more than a lawnmower? “Now get to work, Daddy!”
Or…there are polos and ties and madras plaid bermudas. Anja’s daddy also doesn’t care for clothes.
I remember giving my dad golf balls almost every year. He loved golfing, so it made sense. Golfing wasn’t a chore for him. There was the occasional tie or stupid mug (he didn’t even drink coffee), and always a handmade card, but never work-related items. Is it just me, or wouldn’t that be the equivalent of a mommy getting a set of frying pans or a new blender? “Now get cooking, Mom!”
Thankfully, I already know what I’m getting him this year (though he regularly reads my blog so I won’t post it here until after Father’s Day), but what about next year? A video game? Pint glasses? Or do I succumb to the pressure and buy him a drill?
How about your husbands? Like I said, maybe my husband is just weird in not wanting all the items mentioned in the sale ads.
