Father’s Day is coming up which means you get to pay back the dad in your life for how he treated you on Mother’s Day.
Did he buy you flowers and a card? Get him a card and a half pound of prosciutto. Did he buy you a blender? Get him a laundry basket and some detergent. Did he actually get you something special that reminded you why got married and started a family in the first place? Then you might need to get him something nice.
Here are some ideas, including a few from dads around the blogosphere:

What are you getting for the dad in your life for Father’s Day?
I actually own the women’s tank top version of the Whiskey Made Me Do It shirt! It’s phenomenally well made, soft, and oh so comfortable. The company who makes it, Buy Me Brunch, has really amazing and quirky products, and while they’re slightly not PTA-Friendly, they make me feel like the subversive 40 year old I am. The fibers they choose are top notch. I’m not affiliated with them or know anyone there or receiving anything from them, but I’m wicked impressed by their stuff!!!
I got nothing for Mother’s Day, I didnt even get to sleep in, I however will be making him a cute poster like thing.
