Personal Touches Mean Most To Dads On Father’s Day

While a tie or tools are nice, most dads just want to be around their loved ones on Father’s Day. A third of the dads taking part in a BabyCenter.com poll say they intend to mark the holiday with a family outing. Nearly 20% plan to have a barbecue, while 15% will be celebrating with a home-cooked dinner.

When it comes to gifts, 26% want to receive “a homemade present from my child.” And that’s precisely what 50% expect to get, a card and something their child makes them. That’s also all they want, saying they’d “be embarrassed” if their family “made a big fuss.” However, 13% wouldn’t turn down sports equipment, tickets to a sporting event, or a framed photograph. Just 2% are hoping to receive a tie or some other piece of clothing this Sunday.
