Bill Cosby had it right. Yes, many of us dads are the “fun ones,” the “jokesters,” and the “dress up dolls.” There are fathers all over the world “who get things they can’t use and . . . don’t want.” With Father’s Day coming up I wanted to offer some suggestions for things that Dad actually wants:
Want – Deck Box. Give dad a Lifetime Deck Box so he has somewhere to quickly put away all of the kid’s toys left on the lawn. Keep them safe so he doesn't hit them with the lawn mower anymore. So, really . . . it’s a gift that keeps giving.
Don’t Want – Another light-up, pink, paisley, or superhero tie. It’s just another burp rag for the baby to spit up on.
Want – New shed to store all the yard tools in. You know you all keep telling us to put the tools away.
Don’t Want – “Cute” stuffed animal driver cover to hang on his golf bag. In case you haven’t forgotten, we’re not perpetual 6-year-olds. We’re men! *grunt*
Want – Horizontal shed to store the kid’s bikes in – and get them out of the garage. The more organization, the better, right?
Don’t Want – One of those visors with fake hair attached to it. Bald is beautiful.
Want – Kayak or paddleboard for taking to the lake. Everybody wins!
Don’t Want – Nose hair trimmer. Well, not unless we ask for it. We’re not complete animals. Besides, it’s not nose hair, it’s part of my mustache and mustaches are manly.
Want – Picnic table for serving his masterfully cooked BBQ. We’ll gladly give all you moms a night off from cooking.
Don’t Want – Car Wax. Believe me, we have plenty.
Want – Basketball hoop. Again . . . it’s for the kids . . . really.
Don’t Want – Coffee mug. We appreciate the “World’s Greatest Dad” compliment, but we're still bying for the World's Greatest NBA player title.
Take a look at the clock. It's 4:00 and the clubs are still open! Head over to pick up one of our great Lifetime products for Dad this year, and let him know just how much you love him.
