Fathers Day Gifts

I know that Fathers day is a week away but my wife has this weakness that she can't wait until the day to give me my presents. So today I received my presents, I got a golf kit with a Redskins golf ball, some tee's and a Redskins towel. Also, I got the Redskins t-shirt with Hail to the Redskins lyrics on the back, pretty AWSOME!!! I figure we can say what the fathers get in this thread...

Re: Fathers Day Gifts

I also got mine early. New audio receiver installed in the car (my old one that came with the car - a 2001 Pontiac - had stopped playing CDs). This one's IPod compatible which is huge, now I plug it in and play whatever.

Love it.

Next weekend I plan on getting outside on the grill with a beer in hand, maybe slow cook some babyback ribs, and watch the US Open. Can't beat that day!

We got him some shirts as we celebrated his birthday and Father's Day early as he has to be in NC, on work business. He loved them.

Re: Fathers Day Gifts

Going on a steam train ride and picnic with the kids, then a cook out afterwards.

Re: Fathers Day Gifts

I asked for a wood bordered, glass case for my father’s flag. After 9 years I still have it in the plastic case that the cemetery gave me for it. Hopefully I get it.

Re: Fathers Day Gifts

"Happy Fathers Day" should suffice, no?

Exactly. Don't get me anything for Father's Day because a) I probably don't want it and b) I hate pretending to be happy about receiving it.

Heat pump just went out (fried circuit board) so I'm cranky.

It's from my kids, but being that they will not be bringing in income anytime soon being that my oldest is 8 and my youngest is 3, she buys the gifts and lets the kids give it to me. I do the same thing for her on mothers day. We don't do anything for our anniversary either. But we make sure that the kids have something to give for mothers day and fathers day.

I received one from my mother-in-law for my grandfathers flag. Talk about disrespect, my aunt's and uncle's were going to throw it in the garbage when my grandma died. I saved it and framed it and put a picture of my grandfather in it.

I agree I did not ask for my gifts, again like I said in a different post my wife and I do the whole mother's day, fathers day thing for the kids, to let them give us gifts. Yeah we buy them for each other but its for the kids to give to us.

Re: Fathers Day Gifts

I'm not a father yet, but I'm getting some nice steaks and red wine and taking them to my Dad's house this Sunday. Should be fun. It will be low key. I'll probably get him a book, too. He's the most well read man I've ever met, so finding a good book for him is always an interesting challenge.

Re: Fathers Day Gifts

Just a thought - For the father's out there, the moment you are most proud of, enjoy the most, or otherwise caused you to say "Damn, it's great to be a dad!"

For me, it's just watching my son grow into a good young man. He's only six and, yes, he's whiny and petulant at times. But mostly, he is a good kid filled with kindness. His school reports said he is always helping others in his class. He practices random acts of kindness, often giving cherished toys to others b/c "they should be happy too". (Boy is smart too, in kindergarten reading on a 4th grade level, math at a 3rd grade level)

I am damn proud of him and it makes me feel good to say "Yup, that's my boy!!"

That is pretty low trying to down grade JoeRedskin's son's accomplishments. Dude is proud of his son. So what if your kid or neighbor's kid had the same thing written, be proud of them as well, this world needs a lot of good heart people.

What you expect the teachers to write, that your kid could flew over the moon or something.

Re: Fathers Day Gifts

If your dad is a Redskins fan, buy him the 3 DVD set from Barnes and Noble, "3 Greatest Games-Super Bowl Victories". For the first time, the original network broadcasts of three classic Washington Redskins games are available to own in this thrilling three DVD set. I just got mine a couple of days ago and I just LOVED it! My prayers were answered. I highly recommend this gift, we purchased it for about $26.00.

Yeah I thought it was pretty low too, uncalled for. Glad I wasn't the only who thought that.
