If you haven’t gotten your dad anything for Father’s Day yet, you’ve still got time to get most of the stuff on this list.  Someone polled a bunch of dads and asked what they want for Father’s Day.  Here are the top ten things dads are hoping to get . . .

  1. Doing something special with the family, like a hike or going to a pool.  A separate Father’s Day poll ALSO found that’s #1 this year.
  2. A card.  It actually tied for first place.
  3. Clothes.
  4. Something homemade.  Especially dads with young kids.
  5. Tools.
  6. Electronics.
  7. Something related to one of his hobbies.
  8. A gift certificate for something fun.
  9. Having the day to himself.  One in nine dads want everyone to leave them alone.
  10. Food, beer, wine, or liquor.

Only 3% of dads said they’d love to get flowers.
