What Dad Doesn’t Want this Father’s Day

As you know, your dad is one a great guy. Every time you needed someone, he was there for you – even during that phase (don’t worry, we all had one). And it wasn’t always easy for him, you know? So this year, for Father’s Day, it’s kind of your duty to show him that you appreciate everything he’s done for you – because he really has done a lot. Of course, there are tons of gifts out there, which is why we’ve made this blog post to help you. Displayed in a somewhat random order, this list is comprised of gifts to avoid so that Father’s Day this year is memorable…but only in a good way.

What-Dad-Doesnt-Want

Underwear

You should never have to ask what size boxers your dad wears. That’s pretty awkward – it’s your dad, guys. Even if he’s really into boating and you just happen to stumble upon super cute, anchor-printed boxers, it’s not okay. Sure, he might really like them, but this is Father’s Day we’re talking about here.

Exception: None Found.

Dumb Grill Products

What’s more versatile than a hot dog flipper? Tongs. What allows you to rotate meatballs besides an overpriced, specially designed basket? Tongs. How is corn evenly grilled without a non-stick cage? TONGS. So maybe instead of spending a crazy amount of money on ridiculous grilling products, you should just purchase one product that makes sense: a really good pair of tongs.

Exception: A taco grill rack.

Things to Do with Dad on Father’s Day

As you’ve probably heard, there’s this special day that’s dedicated to your Dad called Father’s Day. It comes around once a year and, as it just so happens, it’s not far away. Look guys, I know it can be a challenge to clear your calendar for a whole entire day, but let me just remind you that your Dad cleared like a few decades of his life for you.

Family fishing

That said, it’s important that you make an effort on Father’s Day to spend some quality time with your old man. I’m not suggesting that you forgo giving him a gift – he really deserves one – but rather that you should actually hang out with him too. That’s why we’ve put together this list of things you and your Dad can do together to make him feel special (because he really is).

Grave Plot: Jack, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, becomes obsessed with Christmas. He employs the help of Halloween Town’s other residents (including bats, ghouls, and goblins) to recreate Christmas in lieu of their annual Halloween festivities.

Fright Factor: Oogie Boogie is slightly terrifying and not everyone’s accustomed to limbs and heads being detachable. But it’s animated. So it’s not super scary or anything.

Popcorn Pairing: Monster Munch. Crunchy popcorn cloaked in sweet fruit flavors is sure to be a hit in your Halloween Town. (And yeah, it does happen to match the movie’s color scheme.
