View Full Version : What do men want.....

.....besides Chiefs stuff? Tomorrow's Father's Day. So far, I've gotten mine a couple of sprinklers (to water his lawn and keep the dogs busy & cool) and an attachment type of thing for his grill. What else? I may end up getting him something Chiefs, but I at least want to try to be different. I was thinking a punching bag to hang in the garage (I could use it to). A good one is gonna run me $150-200, so that's out of the question.

Nothing too expensive. Maybe $20-30.

I figured it would make you men look. While you're here, you could at least give me some ideas (for Father's Day, not "what men want"). :p

Food and drink are always good. Trips and/ or tickets are good.

I wouldn't get something hobby related unless you know that the person really wants that item. Otherwise you end up buying crap that the person feels obligated to hang onto.

p.s. Unless he has told you different then I would guess that if he really wanted a punching bag he would have one already.

Yeah, I know. I can't think of anything that he doesn't already have (Chiefs) in his basement. And we're probably talking a Wal-Mart gift at that, so it won't be anything too special.

Hmmm? Fair enough...........you can never go wrong with fine whisky or firearms. (Note to Luv) Don't give him both, or he may end up featured on an episode of COPS.

Men want breadmakers. I was very pleased to get a breakmaker for Christmas in 2004, and I still use it a lot.

That's actually not a bad idea. He already got a rice cooker he uses alot for making jumbalaya. He could make some sort of jalapeno bread to go with it. How much do they usually cost? Guess I could go to Wal-Mart online to get an idea.

Actually, I didn't see your price range when I posted this. I think they start in the $100 range and go up from there.

Sometimes men just want bread.

Also not a bad idea. I don't know though. Hate to spend $30 on something that will be gone in 30 minutes. I think I'm teeter-tottering between the bread maker and the Lowe's gift card.

Not to pour cold water on your bread, Ms. luv, but what if he likes it too much?

You know, and starts making bread like crazy and eats bread morning, noon, and night and swells up like a giant dough-infused hairless gorilla and then drinks a coke that interacts with the yeast and starts to develop tremendous volumes of internal gasses which distends his abdomen and makes him float off into the air and get hit by a passing plane and causes a horrible crash when the plane strikes an apartment complex at 400 miles per hour where people are trying to watch Monk reruns and stuff?

time is good. take him out to eat and to see a movie. hard to go wrong w/a gift card from a home center too. ifn he likes to read a good book would do well. if he likes to grill, gen-aire has got a killer stainless steel grill at lowes. though that may over shoot your budget by $850 or so.

speaking as a father and grandfather, it doesn't really matter so much what you get them...

what they like the best is the fact that you are there, expressing your love...

having said that, the breadmaker would be my suggestion...

Be practical

$30 in gas for his mower!
Take him to lunch at his favorite bar and grill.
A new straw hat for when he is riding his mower.
A tank of gas for the BBQ grill.
10 pounds of fudge.
Two months of Netflicks.
A couple of Hank JR. CD's.
A year subscription to Playboy.
A year subscription to WPI-lol sorry TOO EXPENSIVE and useless.
A Hamm radio or a CB so he can talk to weirdo's and truckers.
Get your Mom some Victoria Secrets stuff-give the catalogs to your dad-he wins twice.
Meat of the Month Club-Next month is T-Bones
A pair of nice walking shoes.
A paid night in a motel for your parents.
A telescope for a new hobbie-or peeping
One Paid parking ticket to the Chiefs game and a beer inside of Arrowhead-$75.00-lol

Or just try being yourself and hang out with him-that would be the best gift anyone could get.
