Is Father's Day just as important as Mother's Day? In a recent survey, only 5% of people said Father's Day is MORE important, compared to 27% who said Mother's Day is. But almost two-thirds said they are equally important.
Another survey asked dads what they'd like to GET for Father's Day this year. So if you still haven't bought anything, here's some inspiration . . .
The top 10 gifts dads want are a nice dinner out . . . a nice bottle of booze . . . a watch . . . a vacation . . . clothing . . . a smart speaker . . . a steak dinner at home . . . tickets to a sporting event . . . beer . . . and expensive coffee.
If none of those do it for you, some more highlights from the top 30 include aftershave . . . a pizza oven . . . photography accessories . . . socks (???) . . . a home-brewing kit . . . a video game . . . headphones . . . a fitness tracker . . . a power tool . . . moisturizer (???) . . . a family portrait . . . slippers . . . and a nice pen.
But even though dads want those things, it doesn't mean they EXPECT to get them.
According to the survey, the average dad only expects each kid to spend $27 on them this year. So if you go with a big-ticket item, it's fine to make it a chip-in gift from the whole family.
