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!

Re: Fathers Day Gifts

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.

Your wife gives you stuff on fathers day? Heck me and my wife don't even exchange gifts on our anniversary. This year all the fathers are going out fishing in my boat and we are having a cook out when we get home.

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.

Well that makes perfect sense. I just hate buying gifts and my mother and father have everything they need or want. I find just making time to spend with them on mother's and father's day is all they really want. My mother was out of town for mothers day so we set a date leter this month for me to pick her up in the boat (they live on the water) and we will take a ride up to a nice returant on the water and have a nice lunch. Not sure what we will do for fathers day but I'm sure it will be something like a cookout with all the family.

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!!"

Thats the same thing my 6 year olds report card said and my neighbors 6 year old report card said the same thing as well.
