T-shirts? He has plenty of those – many of which are left over from his college days and will never again see the light of day. Ties? Check, one in every conceivable color, shape, and pattern. How about cufflinks? Even though he’s only worn them once (at his wedding), he still has a tidy collection left over from Father’s Days past.
If you’re coming up short on what do get for Dad this year, here’s a few ideas for awesome Father’s Day gifts that won’t end up at next spring’s yard sale.
