What Not to Get Dad for Fathers Day – Our Top 5

Necktie  Quilt

As fathers day draws near ,I thought I would put together a list of things that are probably best left for dad to get on his own. I can’t tell you how many times I was asked by my eight kids “dad, what do you really want for fathers day?” The answer has always been the same “I have you, what else could I ever want? The best gift of all was given to me on the day you were born.” The fact still remains there are things kids shouldn’t waste their hard earned money on. Here goes.

Neckties

 
 

The last time I wore a necktie was when I was inducted into the Country Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2010. Other that that, all the neckties I received over the years occupy the right side of my closet. So as far as I'm concerned I don't think a necktie is a great Idea as a gift for dad, besides I'd like to think I'm pretty good at picking some awesome ties. Here's a great idea though, one mom will love. Get grandma to make a necktie quilt like the picture shown.

Underwear

 
 

Whether boxers or tightee-whitees, dads prefer getting their own under garments. I've got a drawer full of boxers with all kinds of cartoon characters or strange sayings. The last thing I want to do, is get into a car accident and be rushed to the hospital while sporting a pair of Sponge Bob or elephant trunk boxers.

Fishing Tackle

 
 

This one is pretty obvious for me, have you ever tried to catch fish on hot pink or glitter purple plastic worms. While they are "pretty" and "cute" and "adorable," they don't catch many fish. However they did catch several laughs from my fishing buddies when I actually tried to use one. The kind of fishing tackle dad needs, is best left for the old man to blow a couple of hours at a sporting goods store getting them himself. The later is the real reason for not wanting tackle as a gift.

Beer or Liquor

 
 

Something about getting liquor as a gift from your child just isn't right in my book. Even if mom or a grandparent may have assisted in the acquisition of the booze, I don't believe it sends a good message and most importantly I don't want to be the one explaining to CPS why my kid was in the liquor store buying booze. Nor do I want my child telling everyone during show and tell at church or school about a liquor store trip.

Diet Books or Related Items

 
 

Think about it, getting dad a gym membership or a book to show him how to loose weight or get those "six pack abs" mom wants him to have, will do nothing of the sort. Take the $25.90 you would have spent on the book and take dad out to dinner instead. As for the diet try getting the old man off the couch and take him for a walk in the evenings instead. That alone will be the best gift for him because he'll spend time with you and start to get in shape. If he really wants the book, he'll order it.
