What NOT to get Dad for Father's Day



tommybahama.jpegOf all the gift giving holidays, Father's Day is the worst. Dads are always hard to shop for. And a gratuitous holiday in the heat of summer just makes the pain worse.

How will you survive? Let's talk about what NOT to do:

1. Don't buy an overpriced Tommy Bahama shirt or Ed Hardy anything, no matter how much Dad likes them. If you love your father, you owe it to him to class up his act.

2. Stay away from stupid golf trinkets. If you must, buy balls or a round at a course that he'll actually use.

3. Ditto for ridiculous bbq items. Dad really doesn't need that Bucs grill cover. Really.

4. Don't sweat an alternative to the flowers you got for Mother's Day. Just bring Dad a cup of coffee, or a six-pack. Or anything that says, "I care."

5. Whatever else you do, DO NOT FORGET to call home!

Anyone have other Father's Day no-no's?
