A Tie

Seriously? Even if Dad wears a tie to work every day, that doesn’t mean he wants to be reminded of that fact all the time. Giving your dad a tie on Father’s Day is like giving your best friend a candle or a pack of gum. It says, “I just don’t know you that well,” or, “I didn’t put any thought into this.” You’d be better off with just a card than another piece of neck silk, even if it has a really nice pattern.

Useless Office Knickknacks

Why is work the go-to genre for gifts for men? In case you’re wondering, I’ll spell it out for you: Dad doesn’t want another picture frame, paperweight, paperclip dispenser, or novelty coin bank. His cubicle has enough going on without a statue of Calvin peeing on something. Put it back on the store shelf and walk away. Your dad will thank you.

A Handmade Craft— From an Adult Child

Unless you’re a world-class knitter and your dad loves hats, there’s not a lot of wiggle room on this one. Beyond about age 10 it’s pretty lame for Dad to receive a painted set of hand prints, even if it does make a butterfly. And a lot of the stuff you might be tempted to make will likely fall under the “Useless Office Knickknacks” category. If you’re truly a master carpenter and you can build something outstanding, go for it. Otherwise, pass on hand-making your Dad’s gift.



I don’t know how else to say it—men love meat. What father wouldn’t be thrilled to receive New York strip steak, center cut pork chops, or cheddar and jalapeno smoked bratwurst? Giving the gift of fine grilling meats gives dad the chance to do two of the things he loves most- grill, and then eat.

Barbeque Sauce

I saw something online the other day that screamed “Dad” to me: a father's day bbq gift basket. Whoever thought of this is a genius (wink wink). It comes with a bunch of different sauces, including spicy, zesty and horseradish varieties. I don’t know about your dad, but my dad is a connoisseur of sauces, and he would flip his lid to get a father's day bbq gift basket rather than another box of golf tees.


Nothing says “I love you and accept you for who you are” like a beer ice bucket full of Dad’s favorite snacks. Your mom may roll her eyes or “tisk tisk” him and his snacking habits, but you can show him your unconditional love in a way he’s sure to understand: through food! Pick up a Budweiser or Rolling Rock beer bucket, fill it with cold ones or snacks, and watch a smile light up his face.
