Father’s Day Gift –Watches?

My Dad has got to be one of the hardest people I know to buy a present for. He has everything he wants already, and if he finds he wants something, he just goes and buys it himself. Plus, it isn’t like he and I go shopping together very often to know what he would “hint” at to even get him.

For past holidays I’ve bought him cologne, nice clothes, a Dolce & Gabbana leather belt, yard stuff, car stuff, boat stuff, tools, etc. Nothing really all that great, except the belt – but recently it broke. Oh, and he made a point of telling/showing me that it broke too adding in an “I’m not complaining or anything, but…” comment. Nice.

So, I’m thinking about maybe getting him a nice new hand watch for Father’s Day this year. If I can find a nice pretty affordable one, that’d be great. If not, eh I guess it’ll be another cologne set again. I’m pretty predictable when it comes to that present for him lately. Who knows though? Maybe I’ll surprise him!

This one from Ice Watch is really cool but I’m not sure how much it costs (I couldn’t find that on the website). It would be a great casual watch for him to wear, I think. Watches and clothing are sometimes just hard to buy for someone as a present, so I’m just not sure. Oh the decisions!

Do any of you have any suggestions for a place to get a nice casual watch that won’t break my bank account? If not a watch, how about another present for a Dad?

What were some of your favorite presents to give to your Dad for Father’s Day, his birthday, Christmas, or some other holiday or occasion? Any suggestions or ideas would be great!

Ouch, that's wasn't the nicest comment! How about food? I mean all men love food, can't you take him out to dinner? Giving an activity is always nice.

Love the watch. My dad loves Jimmy Buffett, so I usually give him something to do with that.

Which probably doesnt help you lol.
