The 7 Lamest Father's Day Presents

If you still haven’t bought some­thing for Father’s Day, you’ve got about 48 hours left. But I found a list on Complex.com of lame presents to avoid. It has obvi­ous stuff no one would ever buy their dad, like scented can­dles and man-purses.

Plus these seven things you should prob­a­bly avoid. If you DID buy some­thing on this list, don’t panic. You just might want to think about a back-up gift.

#7 — Any T-Shirt with the Word “Dad” on It. He might wear it, even though it’s lame. But he’d almost def­i­nitely pre­fer a T-shirt with NOTHING on it.

#6 — A “Hot Sauce of the Month Club” Mem­ber­ship. Complex.com says ANY monthly mem­ber­ship like that is lame, because it SEEMS thought­ful, but isn’t. (With that said, I tend to think any­thing food-related is a safe bet.)

#5 — Dad Jeans. If you’re giv­ing him jeans, they say to upgrade his style a bit. But the thing is, he prob­a­bly likes his dad jeans because they’re COMFORTABLE, not because they LOOK good. So jeans in gen­eral are a risky Father’s Day present.

#4 — Under­wear. If you gave him a three-pack of boxer shorts on any other day, I guar­an­tee he’d appre­ci­ate it. But on Father’s Day, it just says you put in zero effort.

#3 — Hair Prod­ucts. This one’s prob­a­bly the worst thing on the list. Unless it’s a gag gift or some­thing, let HIM worry about his hair. He knows how much he’s got left.

#2 — A Nov­elty Tie. He might wear it once or twice, but if you really want to do the Father’s Day tie thing, get him a NICE tie. And get him some­thing else to go with it.

#1 — A Cof­fee Mug. If it says some­thing like “World’s Great­est Dad” on it, maybe. It just can’t be the ONLY gift you give him.
