Take Note This is What Dads Really Want This Father’s Day
My Father was pretty unique. He didn’t like a lot of attention and preferred a simple quiet life after retirement. It was nearly impossible to buy my father a gift for any occasion let alone Fathers day. Whenever I visited him in The Rio Grande Valley, I would have to inconspicuously hide a gift somewhere in the house.
The market research group One Poll says, 3 out of 4 fathers prefer an experience, instead of receiving a gift, like a tie or other clothing.
Nearly 50 percent would be happy just getting a phone call from their children. The study says, if you still want to buy something for Dad the top gifts include steaks, tickets to a ball game, or a cold beer.
