Top 10 Best and Worst Father’s Day Gifts for Dad From His Teenager

Ah… Father’s day! The thoughts of pig-skin, power tools and vintage motorcycles floats through our minds with curious anxiety. Or will it be another red tie and pair of socks?
What will it be this year? Should I practice my “thanks” and best smile in the mirror? Will I need shots or will there actually be a pleasant surprise waiting for me today?
Here are some things Dad may want to ponder, just to be prepared.

10 Worst Gifts

Number 10: Socks.

Number 9: A paisley tie.

Number 8:  A papier-mâché ashtray made up of forged absentee notes.

Number 7: Borrowing dad’s car to get the gift … and a coupon from Macco Body Shop for dent and fender repairs

Number 6: Dollar store aftershave that seems to attract raccoons.

Number 5: A raccoon named “frothy”.

Number 4: Second hand bowling shoes with the name “Bubba” stenciled on.

A certificate saying “Worlds’ Greatest Dad” – stuck in your printer.

10 Best Gifts

Number 10: Spending time with dad
(lying in front of the TV with headphones on while texting doesn’t count)

Number 9: Acting Happy for a day – 24 hours mood-free!

Number 8:  Two words – Cordless Power Tools

Number 7: Sit and have a conversation with Dad that doesn’t start with “I need” or “I broke

Number 6: Having friends over who aren’t named for their felonies.

Number 5: Hugs all day long – (even when it gets annoying)

Number 4: A promise to be home on time for a month… no, seriously.

Number 3: Breakfast together

Number 2: A can of ant spray (see worst gift #2)

The number one best gift for dad from his teenager:
Anything they make for you.
Some food, a card, a song and its always perfect!

You know what your teenager is going to say and your teenager knows what you are going to say.
Here’s a Father’s day suggestion: Pretend you have no idea what the other is going to say, one person is the listener and the other the speaker for 5 minutes, then switch roles. The listener asks one of the following questions:

  • Why are you here?
  • What makes you happy?
  • What would you like to see changed in the world?

Here’s the tricky part, the listener should do the following;
Do not comment or add to the listener’s story, do not give any verbal cues (mmm, ah, oh!) and don’t give any visual cues. Simply take in the speaker with love and acceptance.

Each speaker gets approximately 5 minutes to speak.
Please email me and let me know how it worked. [email protected]

Happy Father’s day to all the dads, all the teenagers and the Moms who put up with them!

Thanks to all the people who inspired this list!
