You’ve heard me rant about this before but men are literally the worst people to shop for. The most stressful time of the year is when I have to buy a dude something #firstworldproblems With Father’s Day around the corner, I’m in all sorts of panic-mode! Over the years, I have gave my dad all kinds of gift planned years in advance… yet somehow they all seem to f a i l.
One year, I was convinced I hit the nail on the head, like had the BEST gift idea for him because he told me he loved pens (I was like 10). So I got him a silver plated pen engraved with his name. He never used it. For the longest time I guess I thought that meant he cherished it…. I’m older and wiser now.
Oh ya, how can I forget the one time I got my dad a wireless mouse. I thought this was a stroke of genius and so tech-savvy, completely ahead of the curve. But how many times do you take your friends to come see the mouse your daughter got you for Father’s Day? Right. Never.
Just last year, I got my business-savy dad a subscription to Houston Business Journal which I definitely thought he would love…. in the last year alone he has asked me to unsubscribe at least 15 times. Ya, love you too Pops.
So I’ve come to the conclusion: just ask him what he wants. Somehow, the male species do not care if you “know what they want” and do not get offended. They rather just get what they want! And the best gift to give any dad: quality time over food!! This Father’s Day check out one of these Houston restuarants, grab some grub and talk about all the other presents from Father’s Day Ghost of the Past.
Get your reservations in now! T minus two weeks of dad-lovin’ and for those that want to get a gift card or two, Blaze Pizza backed by Lebron James will be opening in Houston in July!!
Cheers to finally finding something that fits his taste,
