I am looking forward to Father's day. My Dad is hard to buy for, so I am always in need of ideas for what to get him! I usually go witth a gift card to the movies, or a tin full of his favorite treats.

Yes, that is true! They have all kinds of gift cards there, I think generally $10 cheaper than retail wen you get the bundle packs.

As for the treats, I usually go to Big Lots, Dollar Trees, etc and stick up on the chips, sodas, candy etc. Smilie

When my dad was alive, I would usually go over and cook him something on the grill and have the kids bring it to him like a waiter would. As far as gifts, the Home Depot/Lowes gift card was the best idea we had.
