Father's Day V.. Mother's Day: Who Get's The Best Gifts?

We recently participated in a debate among our coworkers. The debate surrounded the issue of whether moms or dads receive the best gifts for their respective holidays? The answer was obvious to the men in the room while the women begged to differ. Neckties are one of the most common presents dads receive on Father’s Day. However, presenting ties as gifts at a backyard barbecue usually doesn’t break the bank. Men in our office suspected that much more is spent each year on moms but they didn’t have proof. So we contacted the National Retail Federation to learn whether disparities lurk between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day spending. The numbers surprised us so much that we are sharing them with you.

If you’re struggling on what gift to give your dad this year, don’t skimp on dad like our research showed, add a batch of Mrs. Fields cookies to spruce up any humdrum socks, necktie or item-turned-paperweight.

Gift Ideas for Every Dad

All right, ladies. No time to waste. Father’s day is coming right up, and we’ve got all the right gifts for the magnificent men on your list. Maybe you’ve already shopped for your husband, but what about the other fathers in your life?

Like your father-in-law, for example. He never misses a tee time, his favorite number is “FORE!” and he’s really into clubs (golf clubs and country, of course). Dad’s Golf Ball Box will really get him into the swing of things on Father’s Day.

Father's Day Preview and Giveaway

The kids are almost out of school and the barbecues are warming up, which can only mean one thing–it’s almost time for Father’s Day! The new Father’s Day catalog is hitting mailboxes now, so make sure you look for yours (or order one here).

Here are some of my favorite items:

The Super Snacker Cooler is perfect for the practical men in your life–his favorite cookies, brownies, muffins, nuts and popcorn are loaded in a 12-can cooler that he’ll use again and again. Practicality is a wonderful character trait. I wouldn’t know anything about it, but I definitely admire it in others.

Sometimes with men you have to spell it out. That’s why Dad’s Trio Tray is perfect for Father’s Day. Three block boxes filled with dad’s favorite treats sit snug in a tray, spelling out your favorite three-letter word.

And finally, I love the next two gifts because they are perfect secondary gifts. What are secondary gifts? They are smaller gifts for people you want to remember on gift-giving occasions. For Father’s Day, that might be Uncle Joe or your brother-in-law, or your dear neighbor Ed.

For the sporty type, we have the Sweet Sports Tin.
