Have I mentioned that the last handsome, sturdy and durable wallet I bought my husband to replace the George Constanza bursting at the seams, broken zipper and all one-was SWIFTLY returned by my husband who when asked why he felt the need to make a trip to return said gift rather than just USE it said, “I don’t need another wallet the one I have is just fine.”
Here’s the thing- my husband is not a good gift receiver– the man doesn’t really want anything. All he really needs is a transistor Gilligan Island radio. Of course being that it’s Father’s Day. my kids REALLY want to get him something- just to show him in their own small way how much they adore him…because I’VE given UP!
That is UNTIL I found out about fanchest and decided I needed to share the goodness in a post titled Father’s Day Gifts for Every Dad.
So I asked my husband what men like him REALLY want for Father’s Day and this is what he said:
“I don’t really need stuff. I just love being around my family, barbecuing on a nice warm Sunday afternoon, watching or listening to the game and that’s it.”
Me: Let’s break this down shall we. There is NOTHING you want..nothing?
The Husband: No.
The Husband: If I can exercise then I have everything I need.
Me: But I thought all men love their tech toys?
The Husband: I’m technically illiterate. All I need is a radio.
Me: But what about other men- you think they would say they want to spend the day with their family and barbecue- I thought they and you would just want to be left alone- and not asked to do ANYTHING?
The Husband: I think most dads want to spend Father’s Day with their kids–of course NONE of us want to do any mundane chores- so feel free to take that off my plate this Sunday.
Me: So really- there is no present I can give you?!
The Husband: Just your love- oh and you walk the dogs tomorrow.
Of course once I presented him with this fanchest ( filled with University of Wisconsin Madison goodies — the school our daughter is attending in the fall) his face lit up like a CHANUKAH MENORAH!!

So now that you have the Sporty Dad in your life covered check out these gift ideas for other types of dads!
For Dads of newborns and toddlers, matching Papa Bear and Baby Bear T-shirts available on Etsy will definitely put a smile on his face. Or consider a snuggie that looks more manly than the pastel or floral one Mom carries – patterned with toy cars, in grey, pearl or black.
And for the man with a sense of humor who also wants the best for his little one, there are such unusual accessories as teethers hand-carved of 100 percent maple that resemble brass knuckles. Billed as antimicrobial and self-healing, which means no bacteria and no splinters, they’ll certainly give an amusingly tough edge to both your guys, big and small … making bonding all the more fun.
The Not-So-Techie Dad
If your Dad likens anything technological to torture, your Father’s Day gift to him can be a truly bonding experience. Sign him up for one-on-one, face-to-face lessons. A range of institutions – libraries, churches, computer stores and schools – offers a gamut of classes. If you encourage his progress and help him practice his newfound skills, you’ll soon have one incredibly grateful Dad who’ll enjoy being part of the 21st century and with whom you’ll feel closer than ever before.
For Dads who enjoy prepping meals for the family, you can’t go wrong with such thoughtful items as biodegradable food wrappers, air (not oil) fryers, sushi roll makers or such unique gifts as the three-in-one avocado pitter-splitter-slicer. Tools these days keep healthy eating and our changing food choices in mind, a good thing for all of us.
Come Father’s Day, and the heat and humidity that accompanies it, even the most fashionable Dads can look a bit ragged around the edges. But good news, there are dozens of items that not only will spiff up his wardrobe, but that he’ll find comfortable wearing, too.
Think about leather sandals, a welcome change from sneakers and as appropriate with tailored slacks as shorts and jeans; or board shorts, great for any casual environment, from grocery shopping to a barbecue.
But the end-all-be-all might be the perfect white shirt. Available in wrinkle-free cottons, with this in Dad’s closet he’s ready to go anywhere looking style-savvy, pairing it with jeans, dress pants, shorts or even a sarong for days at the beach.
So which dad is your man and which gift would match his personality?
