It’s father’s day, and a good father is hard to come by. Some people aren’t as lucky, and some people’s fathers are actually their mothers, pulling double duty. It was my mother who taught me how to use power tools, who helped me learn how to shave. It was my mother who showed me how to love my children, and for those reasons, I will always call her on father’s day to tell her how much I love her, and how much she means to me.
So if you have a father in your life, a surrogate father in your life, or a hard-working single mother pulling double parent duty, let’s look at some father themed gifts that help break free from the stupid, and gender-specific ties.
