    Dad gifts?

    Wanting to get my dad just a little something... Say $25 or so. I figure your guess on what he might like is as good as mine.

    I was looking at Nick Offerman's book and thinking how great it would be, when I realized that I don't think I've ever seen my father with a book in my life. Will still consider it. Your dad's lucky. Mine doesn't even like cars! Weird!

    I wish my dad was like that. It doesn't matter how much it costs, but my dad will be genuinely hurt if he doesn't at least get a little recognition for being a good pop. And I'm living with him at the moment, lol. Which reminds me, I already got him a gift, I'm officially moving out next month.

    And lol at earplugs. He does have a pretty naggy wife.

    Scotch, eh. Not much of a drinker, but I know any man would appreciate a nice bottle.

    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Gift card/certificate to someplace he likes. Also, the Art Of Manliness blog has some cool gift guides for men:

    I'm getting mine a gift certificate for his favorite restaurant. It's one of the few things he can use he doesn't have now.

    Cleated feet rejoice. Cleatskins eliminate the need to take your shoes off or get yelled at for clacking and scratching the hardwood floor every time you leave the field, track, or pedal. Also, they deliver traction that guards...

    A flashlight. Men love flashlights, and the new, high-energy flashlights of today are awesome. The Home Depot is the place.
    What man doesn't love the Home Depot? The place is to us what Macy's is to ladies. Search your feelings, you know it to be true!

    I think I will get him a home depot gift card. HD always brings back some good memories of doin' stuff together. And whenever I think of HD I think of hot dogs, which I also abbreviate HD, but because they used to have hot dog stands in some of them. I still see the stands sometimes, but never operating. And now I'm hungry.

    On the flip side, for traction in the snow...if your dad enjoys walking or running in winter. ~$25

    Ask mom what dad buys with credit card. That will tell you his spending habits.

    Don't think I haven't considered it. I wish he did enjoy the green stuff.
