Fathers Day Gift Ideas (from Dudes)

fathersday

Father’s Day is this Sunday and I thought it might be fun to roundup some ideas of what real dads are asking for, instead of the usual, what I think and/or want him to ask for. I had this funny realization that if I read a post written by a man about what to get his wife for Mother’s Day it would make me roll my eyes (engraved bowling ball, Homer??). Shockingly, as it turns out the ideas of what real dudes want aren’t nearly as fashionable or cute,  but I think we need to all come to terms with thatHere are a few ideas rounded up from some dad friends around the country…

A dremel  and pegboard tool organizer (we just bought a house)
I would like to get two of the rafts on the link above and go float down the river with the family or a hike if the weather isn’t cooperating.
