5 Gifts Dads Always Wanted For Father's Day

Father's Day, June 17th 2012, the third Sunday of June is set aside this year to celebrate fatherhood and to complement the better publicized Mother's Day.  Already celebrated by some countries such as Italy, Portugal, Germany, Russia and South Korea, The Americas along with scores of other countries will have their turn at the very commercialized celebration of Father's Day.

There will be exchange of goods and services. Sorry, I mean gifts. And knowing what to get that special Dad is key. Let me help you remove the guess work here.  It's gonna come down to Science.  A recent survey published by Harris Interactive for polled 2000 American adults and concluded that while a 60% majority of women thought that tickets to a sporting event will be the most desired Father's day gift, when men actually wanted a tablet or smartphone, 52% of them. Go figure.

Care to know the remainder of the top five gifts American Dad's secretly want?  Well second is a home cooked meal, then tickets to sporting events, power tools and finally a guilt-free weekend with friends.

iPhone4S, LG Optimus, HTC Evo 4G, Motorola Droids, BlackBerry

The Apple IPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Motorola Xoom

Home cooked stir fry

Sports Tickets

Power Tools

Personally I think most Dads will be happy with fresh sets of boxer briefs and socks so they can finally retire some of those old faithfuls with holes in them.  What are your thoughts on Father's Day gift ideas?  Don't hesitate to share your ideas in the comments below.  Thanks for stopping by...
