Poor Dad. His big day’s coming, and what’s in store. Solar-powered ear-hair trimmer? A tie covered with golfing ducks? Try something a little more sentimental:
- Revisit Strawberry Fields. The Beatles, the Boss, Petula Clark. Buy him CD’s of the artists he introduced you to as a kid. He’ll be thrilled you remember his favorites.
- Make it art-felt. Go back to the days when all your gift-giving was taken care of in arts-and-crafts. Paint a new family heirloom and have it framed. Or roll it, tie with a ribbon and include a few refrigerator magnets.
- Go classic but personal. Pick out a money clip, a robe, PJs, socks, handkerchiefs, then get them monogrammed: D-A-D.
