So many people have given their dads ties on Father's Day. This year, SailorBags (http://www.sailorbags.com) suggests doing something a little different to put a smile on his face.
Here are some tips for how to do just that:
1. Perform some recon.
It works in his favorite movies, so it'll work for dad too. If you’re local, see how he spends his free time. Over the phone, listen to what he talks about. It’s likely that things have changed since you borrowed the car as a teen, and you may find he's revealing more than you’d expect.
Is he a man of simple tastes? Is he always losing his glasses, or does he express a desire that something be fixed around the house? You’ll have a list to go on, and enough to use for his birthday or the holidays too.
2. Remember that this is about him, not you.
When you go to the store, keep that recon handy. You might be drawn to the new fangled golf gadget, but if you noticed his preference for the tried-and-true one he already owns, don't go there. He'll appreciate that you knew better than to get him something he won't use.
That is the trick with buying for your parents, isn't it? Taking yourself out of the equation. Dad might want to return to the same restaurant each year or buy the same brand of fishing tackle over and over. If he's happy, Father’s Day is a success.
3. When in doubt, ask.
Most dads don't mind not being surprised. If you are really not sure, ask what would make him happy.
And then? Do it. Simple.
