What do dads really want for Father’s Day?

I think a lot of moms just want time to themselves for Mother’s Day but I’m not sure what dads really want for Father’s Day.  Crazy sex?? Poker night?? Favorite pie?? New swim suit? I don’t know!

So please dads that visit our site tell us what to buy or do for our husbands for Father’s Day!

Michael has given me one suggestion. He wants some new golf/short sleeve shirts because he’s wearing them to work some this summer.

So the kids and I picked him up a bunch of shirts in new colors on sale, some new flip-flops, a new gym bag that will hold his basketball ball, and a new bacon plate for the microwave. (The other one caught on fire.)

I don’t know – what else should we get??

We’re going to spend a day on a lake before Father’s Day and probably just swim and BBQ on Father’s Day itself (plus church).

What do you think Dads really want for Father’s Day?

What else? What you got sounds like plenty to me. We usually do a small gift (maybe not as much as we’d do on birthdays, but something useful), a nice meal out and a father-son activity like going to a movie or another event.

Crazy Sex? Yes.
Poker night? Yes.
Favorite Pie? Yes.
Swim Suit? No.

Big Green Egg and Crazy Sex? Perfect.

Having my chef nephew make my husband brunch. Then later in the day, we will go to the Louisville Bats baseball game where the kids will have a change to play catch with the dads on the field after the game. Hope he likes it cause I couldn’t come up with anything else!

Whenever I asked my husband what he wants for Father’s Day, he will answer, “Whatever you get will be fine or it doesn’t matter?”

Dads – what does that mean? :)

We’ve already bought him two ties – (I know, typical). I need some ideas, as well.

Hobbies – working out at gym, loves music, loves outdoors yard work.

Perfect day for dad: Sleep till 9. Kids shower him with gifts, then kids and mom go to church, leaving dad alone for 2 hours. Out to lunch at favorite restaurant. After lunch, kids to grandmas until late in the evening, leaving mom and dad some quiet time along to nap or…whatever.

A quiet house and a nap on the couch would be more than enough. My wife got us some great seats at a Braves game… can’t go wrong with that either.

Angela, portable speakers for his iPod (or whatever he listens to music on) would be cool to have while he’s enjoying the outdoors or yard work. Another good idea is anything made by the kids or even a photo of the kids so he can show of how much of a proud papa he is.

I just read the funniest Internet Meme showing a toddler standing on what appears to be his sleeping father’s face that read,”Mommy, why does Daddy want a time machine and a condom for Father’s Day?”

I myself want a new baseball jersey and some alone time so I can finally finish Mass Effect 3.

The kids usually get him something for the yard. This year it’s a table, chair and umbrella. We have been wanting a set for the downstairs patio for quite some time. He will be SO surprised. I’ve already bought it, and it’s sitting in the neighbor’s basement….LOL

Does the holiday still count if your wife is pregnant?
Or if you choose to have pets instead of children and you’ve spent many a night cleaning up after a sick animal that you didn’t get say in?

I would like a card. Just a little something. I do not need anything. I have thought that I would like a large private plane to fly me to the Caribbean and Cancun. That may not happen any time soon. The stock market is a little choppy. I could get some bailout money, I promise to vote for whomever promises me the biggest sum.

I was wondering why I had to get anything for my husband. After all, he’s not my father :-)
Then, I remembered that he did get me something for mothers’ day.
We generally keep gift giving very simple. I will probably get him some khakis and a new shirt (he just started a new job). Not very original, I know.

And we usually buy presents the entire family can enjoy, because we enjoy our family. Father’s Day is no different.

Both “PIE” and Blackberry Cobbler would work for your man’s special day.

For actual breakfast/brunch, I particularly like the Blackberry Cobbler Pancakes at Cracker Barrel.

As long as it is clean, I like “PIE” whenever I am craving “DESSERT” or pretty much anytime I am simply breathing.

I have always been curious about that OTHER type of “Blackberry Cobbler” (Urban-style), though.

Mmmmm…..

Angela: How about a pair of tickets for one of his favorite bands, preferably at someplace small like The Tabernacle or even Gwimnnett Arena (smaller than the dome lol). It may be late NOW, but keep your eyes open for next year and see when one of his fav’s is coming in town. Or even a CD.

But a TIE? Really? Maybe he should get you an iron and a vacuum cleaner for mother’s day……..

Some of you are confused, on the husband’s Father’s Day, his wife should not give him gifts, his kids do that.. She should be spending time with her own dad. On Mother’s Day, the husband should be spending time with his own mom.

Geez Fred TM: you are RUDE. No, I did not get a broom because both of my parents are deceased, thank you very much. I wish I could see them one more time. I didn’t mind at all that he got a new mower as it was needed. I actually got a new grill for Mother’s Day because our old one was bad and I love to grill him a steak every now and then. Now, Fred….play nice or just go away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No one else can tell you what your spouse wants for Father’s Day. For Mother’s Day, I asked for a self-propelled lawn mower. His co-workers told him that was an awful gift. What do they know. Now that we have the new lawn mower, my son can mow the lawn…leaving my husband free to do other chores. It was the perfect gift for me.

On Mothers Day, mom gets jewelry or some other nice gift and dad arranges dinner then takes the kids out so mom can have a nice quiet afternoon. On Fathers Day, dad gets a new grill and then takes the kids out so they can spend time with dad, then dad comes home and cooks his own dinner.

Oh wait, we did that last night, and the night before, and then there was Sunday night, and Saturday afternoon on the kitchen table, oh well….just get me a pair of socks. I’ll take care of the other 364 days honey.

Honestly I just want a day to relax and spend time with my kids and wife. I don’t need any gifts or fancy plans – those always seem to make the day more stressful and less enjoyable than it should be. This year, after church on Sunday morning, we are packing up the kids and a picnic and spending the day at Amicalola Falls. The kids can run around and my wife and I can walk and enjoy the scenery and each others company. That’s really all I need.

Look at the way you talk about “daddy.” And I’M rude? LOL I’m sure you are so used to bad mouthing him that what you wrote there doesn’t even phase you. It tells ME that you think he’s a cheapskate and too stupid to know when his lawn mower is dead. If YOU think it’s dead, then by god it is. You also think it’s perfectly acceptable to buy something for him to do chores with rather than something for pleasure for him. I’ll bet you would raise all kinds of holy hell if he bought you an iron or a vacuum cleaner for mother’s day. But that’s different right lol? Of COURSE it is………..

Change my recommendation to a broom with the seat for the BIG HUGE butted witches………..

All kidding aside, that’s the truth isn’t it? We (men) don’t care. We don’t need a gift, although it IS fun poking fun at folks like MA lol.

The best gift any father can have is love from his children. According to Rick Young his latest single “Good Father” is a culmination of pain and hurt that took more than a year to fully express, “Good Father talks of a relationship gone terribly wrong. Despite trying their best two people who were once friends and lovers are now The only love left is that of a father to his children”. In the song “Good Father”, Rick Young expresses to his ex-lover that while they may not be together any more he is still a good father to his children. According to Rick Young, “There are many men out there who have had their roles as fathers hijacked by one situation or another, I want to remind them that no matter the situation, your existence as a father is to be the best version of you that you can muster in the lives of your children”. “In these recessionary times, these hard times, lots of relationships are suffering , lets be the best people we can be for our families, ourselves and especially our children”

1) Want to go to the strip with the wife and have her be cool like that, even give the dancers some of her own money, then get my own lap dance at home :)

2) Excellent, hardcore sex with anything I want more or less

3) Go out to eat at a fairly good restaraunt

4) Start a tickle fight with me

5) Hear her use profanity and talk about she’d kick another woman’s as$ if she tried to make a move on me

6) Remind me why she married me!

…other cool stuff like that which unfortunately are rare to find in a woman.

Notice how I did not mention anything about material gifts. Although some Amazon.com & eBay gift certifcates wouldn’t exactly be refused. :P

Clothes? Yes. Dad almost always needs clothes, and usually his wife has better taste than he does.

I want nothing material. All I want is for my children and grandchildren to continue to be good Christians and good citizens.

Mothers carry the children for nine months, then have to take care of them until they are grown. I can see the reasoning for Mother’s Day, but not for Father’s Day. Actually, Father’s Day came nine months prior to the birth of each child.
