    What was the best present you have given your dad on Father's Day?

    I have never given a present to my father on father's day and now I don't have the chance to because he died when I was 13. If I could turn back time I would have baked him something since I was good at making desserts. What was the best present you have given to your dad? Was it material things or service?

    I remember when I was about 10 years old washing my dads car as a surprise for father's day. The car ended up being all smeary and you could hardly see out the windscreen. I'd even managed to soak the front seats.
    Luckily my dad took the gesture as it was made; with love. He then showed me how to make the best scrambled eggs ever and suggested I make them the next Father's day. I did too and for many years after.

    Actually, the best present I ever gave my Dad was a pig. My friend had a few piglets and I was looking for something he didn't have and I realized, Dad doesn't have a pig! So, needless to say, he was astonished.

      Nice one. What was his reaction upon receiving that pig? And why pig?

    I never gave my father a father's day gift, but I gave him a stainless steel pocket knife that was nice. Now I have it in a drawer by my computer because he died years ago. Funny how things come right back to us. It is a memory item.

    God Bless.

    I have never given my dad a father's day gift. He's the kind of guy who says, "Don't spend your money on stuff like that." Seriously, he is offended when we spend money on gifts. Oh well. But, what I do every year is send a father's day card with a picture of someone fishing on the cover. I will either create or buy the card. My dad loves fishing and as children we use to go fishing as a family. It was a lot of fun. So, each year, my dad looks forward to his card with fish, fishing boats, and so on. He gets a kick out of the humorous ones. So, that's all I do for him. This year I created a card with different kinds of fishing poles hung on the wall of a fishing cabin. I hope he likes it.

      A present doesn't have to come in the form of things, it could be a mere gesture to show how much we appreciate them.

    My dad is no longer here either. But he lived 77 years, and he always told me the most appreciated thing I ever gave him was a birthday card when I was about  8 or 9. It had a blue bird on the front and said,
    "May the bluebird of happiness..." open it up..."crap all over your birthday cake." It shows a the bird flying over the cake and dropping a gift. This cracked him up because of my age and personality. I remember him laughing hysterically. He talked about it all his life thereafter. He was one of those people that if something struck him funny, you got to hear about it frequently, even for years.

    I am sorry for the loss of your father, especially at such a young age.

      Though 13 years was very short to spent time with him. I'm still thankful that he never failed to show me how much he loved me.

    My husband and I gave him a BB gun, because he said he wanted one. He was thrilled like a young kid with it. I know, weird.

    My father passed away a couple of weeks ago and this will be my first Father's Day without him. Thanks for bringing back a good memory with your question.

    I gave my father 2 grandchildren for him to hug and kiss because my brother is still single at the age of 39 years old. He has a girlfriend but no intention to marry. So, my father gave up hope of having grandchildren under his surname. Every year i would make him a Father's Day card because he doesn't like the idea of spending money on gifts. Hence, a card and a visit with the kids are sufficient for him. That is all he ask for.
