Survey Says: The Father’s Day Gifts Dads Don’t Want To Get

Father’s Day is on Sunday. If you’re still trying to decide what to buy for the dads in your life this year, a new survey is here to help. It asked 2-thousand people about their shopping habits for the holiday and it reveals which presents are most and least appreciated by fathers on their special day.

It seems a lot of dads just aren’t all that picky, as 26% say they’d be happy with any gift they receive.

  • But there are some items fathers would rather not unwrap this year and fishing gear tops the list.
  • That’s followed closely by golf-related items and surprisingly, Hawaiian shirts are third.
  • So what do dads actually want for Father’s Day? Going out for a meal is the most wanted present.
  • Number two is a big ticket item, a special getaway trip. But the third is much more budget-friendly - beer.
  • Spending time with their kids is the fourth most popular Father’s Day gift, followed by a hotel stay and wine, which tied for fifth.
