According to the non-profit research organization Bureau of Associated Dads and Paternal Union Network (BADPUN)*, an astonishing 97% of fathers say they are tired of receiving a new set of grill accessories every June. Coming in second on the list of least desirable Father’s Day gifts are mugs emblazoned with slogans like “#1 Dad” or “World’s Best Dad.” Tied for third place are whisky stones, personalized golf balls, and tactical multitools.
Without relying on these old standbys, what’s a devoted daughter or son to do for dear ol’ Dad? This year, instead of spending your hard-earned money on gimcracks, knick-knacks, and gimmicky gizmos, think outside the gift box. Treat your Pops to a truly memorable adventure with an experiential gift.
*There’s no such thing. We just made that up. But wouldn’t it be hilarious if it really did exist? And wouldn’t your dad absolutely be a charter member?
