While many dads are hoping for electronics or gift cards, others do want a more personal touch
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Nearly one-quarter of dads are feeling sentimental in anticipation of this Father’s Day. In a recent survey conducted by credit card comparison website CreditDonkey.com, 24.7% of fathers said they are hoping for something homemade this year. However, only 15% of all the respondents said they plan to give their dads something they have made for them. Female respondents are almost three times more likely to give something homemade (23.2% vs. 8.4%) than the sons and grandsons who responded to the survey.
“While many dads are hoping for electronics or gift cards this year, others do want a more personal touch,” says Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey.com. “Just over 25% of our respondents said they would like their children to take them out to dinner.”
