This year, I decided to do a survey among my friends to find out what their ideal Father’s Day gift is. The result was both interesting and surprising. Men must really be uncomplicated and women are from Venus. I expected lots of paparazzi, over the top and out of the box thinking to guess what men would really want for Father’s Day. But at last, men are indeed simple and uncomplicated beings.
Here are the top 10 things most of the men consistently said they wanted for Father’s Day:
- Freedom– undisturbed TV time, or a fully paid vacation
- Family outing – to the movies or to a restaurant
- Shaving kit
- Gadgets (for the gadget Dads)
Only two crazy dads made me laugh– one asked for an iPhoneX and the other one billion Naira (even I wanted that for Mother’s Day and didn’t get it lol)
One dad said “Anything made, written or bought by the child is just enough for me. Nothing expensive”
I’m like you don’t say… I want something expensive and OTT for Mother’s Day. I guess we women are really from Mars.
All I can say is “Thank you Dads for making Father’s Day gift an easy one for us”.
