    I'm making this thread because I have NO idea... he's always wanted an air ratchet (power tool) so I think I may go that route, but I dunno.

    What are some of you all looking at getting yours?

    Definitely not a South Park dvd, haha.

    Seriously though, I have no idea yet either. Like, I know that he's been wanting an extra horn for his car that sounds like a rooster, but that's not exactly something that I'll be able to come up with in a week.

    I got my Dad the first set of ESPN's 30 For 30 films. He and I love watching stuff like that and he's going through some health problems right now so I'm just hoping we can sit down together and enjoy Winning Time: The Reggie Miller chronicles!

    I keep telling my wife that an X-box 360 would tie the room together. But, she's insistent on getting me ties :mad 

    My pops is hard to shop for, so probably a GC to a restaurant.

    I'd get my dad a flying lesson at some flight school, but it's out of my budget. So maybe a gift card to some place he'll actually shop at, like Home Depot or something.

    THIS :lol  My dad's easy to shop for. Every year for his birthday, xmas, or fathers day, all he ever wants is a bottle of tequila. None of that cheap shit though, he likes jose cuervo reserva de la familia:drunk :p

    Whenever I do remember Father's Day, I usually get my dad a plant of some sort. Guy loves gardening.

    This is always a good fall back option, especially now that I think his most recent bottle of Uzo has been emptied.

    An Amazon gift certificate - he never knows what he wants when I ask him, so I let him figure it out.

    Yeah this will do. My dad doesn't have any hobbies other than drinking, so.
