Father’s Day is this Sunday and it’s not too late to get Dad a special gift. But don’t blow it by getting him something lame at the last second. There’s a list on Complex.com of lame presents to avoid for Dad. But if you did buy something on this list, don’t worry too much, just think about a back-up gift for him.
Here are the 7 things not to get Dad for Father’s Day:
#7.) Any T-Shirt with the Word “Dad” on It.
He might wear it, even though it’s lame. But he’d almost definitely prefer a T-shirt with his favorite sports team on it
#6.) A “Hot Sauce of the Month Club” Membership
Complex.com says any monthly membership like that is lame, because it seems thoughtful, but isn’t. (I disagree, beer of the month club rocks!)
#5.) Dad Jeans
If you’re giving him jeans, they say to upgrade his style a bit. But the thing is, he probably likes his dad jeans because they’re comfortable, not because he looks hot in them.
If you gave him a three-pack of boxer shorts on any other day, I guarantee you he’ll appreciate it. But on Father’s Day, it just says you put in zero effort.
#3.) Hair Products
It’s just a lame gift, so let Dad worry about his own gel or comb to hide the fact he’s going bald.
#2.) A Novelty Tie
He might wear it once or twice, but if you really want to do the Father’s Day tie thing, get him a nice tie, one that he usually wouldn’t spend he money on.
#1.) A Coffee Mug
If it says something like “World’s Greatest Dad” on it, maybe. But get something else to go along with it. The mug alone says you put in little effort for Dad.
